    "It's one of the best Reddit apps that I've tried for Android. The design is clean and easy to use. Also, based from the time that I've been using it, it's just as fast if not, faster the official Reddit app. Go give it a try."

    "This one of the best and nicest-looking Reddit app that I have tried so far. It looks really nice and is a joy to use. Despite being able to pay to disable ads, I have noticed that a few still pop up every now and then which should really be addressed by the devs soon."

DID YOU KNOW?

Reddit was one of the first company that came out of the Y Combinator program? Alexis Ohanian and Steve Huffman co-founded the company back in 2005. It was soon sold to Conde Naste Publication a year later. Reddit is a social news site that allowed users to create account and post content. These users - called redditors - can post links to external websites or something they created. The community can make votes depending on its usefulness and make comments as well. This determines the position of the post on the front page as well. This is also a way for redditors to gain karma points. These points sort of reflect a user's popularity and credibility within the community. There is also what's called as subreddits which serve as categories. Users can pick from among these to topics that only interest them.

In 2010, Reddit was in 2010's Hottest San Francisco Companies. Despite the company's success, it suffered from financial problems and underfunding. It introduced Reddit Gold that came with added features that users could buy. Digg.com, its main competitor made changes to its business a year later. This proved to be a fatal move that had its user move to Reddit instead. Subreddits have been a big part of why the site has been so popular. It caters to various topics and interests to the community's large user base. Gamers, in particular, have been frequent users of subreddits. The social new site will only grow bigger in time. The best Reddit apps are available to mobile users at any time. Using the service couldn't be easier and more accessible.

    "I'll admit, the price is a little bit high for this app but the level of polish and the number of features kinda make it worth it in my opinion. It pretty and there's a ton of features, too many to count. If you don't mind the price, you will get a very nice and polished app for the money."

    "Relay for Reddit is good at what it does and that's show content exclusive to Reddit. It is a interface which makes Reddit look good and easy to read. I have used it and been able to reply to posts from my inbox, took advantage of the night theme, and customized and filtered it to my liking. Not all Reddit is good Reddit after all. "

    "Reddit is a really nice community where you can find answers to various questions, participate in discussions etc. But their web interface looks really ugly even in a desktop/laptop browser. What can you expect if you read it from a smartphone? This free app makes it readable (and enjoyable) on a mobile device/tablet. A must-have if you read Reddit a lot."

    "Because Reddit is so confusing an app as it is, let's get an app that connects to reddit to add "features". Reddit is liked because it is simple and plain and boring. No one wants all this janky crap when using Reddit - else they'd go to another forum."

    "I checked out iAliens because the client I was using to read reddit suddenly stopped working and the company that developed it wouldn't respond to my emails. After installing I initially had some issues with captcha's loading but once I that started to work the app has been great. It makes posts easy to read and navigate."
