Reporting Bugs
RedReader is beta software, so it is possible that you may encounter bugs.

Details of each crash in the UI thread will be logged to external storage, under the filename "redreader_crash_log_(UUID).txt" - please attach the relevant log when reporting a bug.

Crashes in other parts of the application will cause a prompt to be displayed asking you to email the exception details directly.

Can't get the comments to be ordered by upvotes. :/ only most recent comments are at the top.

By far the best Reddit android client Highly customizable, fast, functional and reliable. You really can't ask for anything more

No pretty color coded comment strings like in Reddit Sync, and the solid black option isn't implemented enough throughout the app (like in settings menu, main screen, post titles etc.). On the plus side, its free, ad-free, and doesn't need any questionable permissions
