Reddit Is Fun is a minimalist third-party client that keeps your focus on the task at hand - Redditing. Unfortunately, there's been a few areas where the app could use some work. The current version lacks pull-to-refresh and doesn't provide the ability to stop checking modmail (notifications for moderators) independently of regular mail. Clicking on New also serves a pop-up to select New or Rising every time, rather than just showing new content. In the beta version rolling out now, these issues have all been addressed.

Now pulling a feed will refresh it, modmail settings are separated from regular mail, and New and Rising content have been given separate tabs. You will need to join the reddit is fun public alpha and beta testing Google+ community before you can get your hands on this functionality.

Alpha and beta testing opt-in:

  1. Join the Google+ community
  2. Hit one of the opt-in links in the Google+ community's sidebar.
  3. Wait a few hours for Google Play to send the new version

If you would prefer to stick with the stable version for now, here are the links.

    Collapsing comments is the only thing I'm missing with this app. Beyond that, it's perfect. I have the paid version and use syncit to sync with my tablet...so nice.

      • Chris

        I can't collapse comments on the app...

        • Colin Kealty

    Nice update, I will check it out. But I'm sure it won't replace Reddit Sync Pro as my go-to Reddit Client.

      My only issue with Reddit Sync is that there is no seperate "casual subreddit" list where you can add casual subreddits you browse often but don't subscribe to.

        Hey, dev. If you're out there somewhere, read the comment above mine.

    Hard to leave Reddit News

      Everything just seems... right with reddit news. Everything is exactly where I would expect it to be, just as it is on the desktop site. Everyone raves over Sync but I've tried it multiple times only to find myself coming back to News.

    Looks nice. I'll check it out, but so far nothing has budged me from using Flow.

    Flow still does it for me.

    Nice update though.
