BaconReader for Reddit Review

BaconReader for Reddit Review

Jan 29, 2013

It’s a fact: reddit is where it’s at. As the so-called “front page of the internet,” reddit is the bulletin board of the 21st Century, packing in news, entertainment and everything in between… and beyond.

It’s only natural that reddit has naturally become the go-to mobile resource for, well, everybody. In this light, mobile clients like BaconReader are very welcome on Android.

BaconReader for Reddit collates most of the reddit experience for Android devices, serving as a bridge for Android redditors worldwide. To understand BaconReader, it helps to understand how it brings reddit features to the table.

The app interface is quite clean, with minimalist touches to the menu and reader. With grayish blue and white being the default color, there was the option to pick two other themes, which are just as easy on the eyes. Additionally, the app has five different fonts, ranging from “extra small” to “extra large.” I can also toggle full-screen mode if I so choose.

Usability is a big factor, and I thought BaconReader did well in this aspect. It allowed me to customize search option and default subreddit. I could also hide read posts, dabble in notifications and pick a refresh interval. I thought the settings menu was fairly thorough and worked well to streamline reddit.com within Android guidelines. It worked will with pictures and even .gifs. The Search functionality also worked well, allowing me to find subreddits discussing even obscure stuff. The app’s Front Page precisely matched the info on the webpage opened up on my laptop, and I was able to share thread links using other apps on my device. I was also able to manage threads and reply to them using the app.

Chalk BaconReader up as another one of those forum clients that I actually almost prefer to using than the full-fledged web portal. Why not? It’s clean, functional, and quite faithful to the premise of reddit.
