In a post to Reddit earlier this evening, TalkLittle, the mind behind Reddit is Fun, announced that the acclaimed Reddit app has been updated to version 2.0. Perhaps the most notable enhancement to the app is official tablet optimization, bringing dual-pane, action-bar sporting goodness to your Android tablet. Other changes include widget enhancements, a fully featured inbox interface, search functionality, saved posts, comment navigation buttons, and more. Here's the full list of improvements:

  1. Tablet optimization (PRO)
  2. Widget shows different color for visited links (PRO)
  3. Store saved drafts for replies and messages (PRO)
  4. ActionBarSherlock 3.5.1
  5. Search
  6. Saved posts
  7. Improved subreddit management and filtering
  8. Comment navigation buttons
  9. Fully featured inbox
  10. Fixed mail notifications
  11. Added many features for user profiles
  12. Got rid of many dialogs

Users may notice that RIF's tablet interface, improved widget, and draft-saving functionality are marked "PRO." These features are only available to users who purchase Reddit is Fun Golden Platinum, which comes in at a reasonable $1.99.

If you're a Redditor and Android user, Reddit is Fun is likely your best bet for browsing Reddit on the go. If you haven't already, grab version 2.0 using the widgets below.

    reddit is fun is the most minimalistic reddit client. less bloat than baconreader and has the look and feel of the original reddit web interface.

      unfortunately, the new version is very buggy. good thing i have the old golden platinum apk as a backup.

    Still no multi-account switching support.

    How does this compare with Baconreader?? I really like the design of the latter, and saying that RIF is similar to Reddit's web interfaces is definitely not a compliment to any app!

      new version released. this fixed all the bugs i encountered upon upgrading to 2.0. compared to baconreader, bc is more bloated. personally, i prefer reddit is fun or reddit news. i also bought baconreader but i didn't like it. maybe just my preference.

    How's this compare to reddionic. That's my favourite reddit client so far by a long shot.

  • Michael

    I still like Reddit News the best.

    "Tablet optimization (PRO)"

    This really frustrates me. I hope this doesn't become a trend.
