You  may remember that TalkLittle's hugely popular Reddit browser, Reddit is Fun, was banned from the Google Play Store about 2 weeks ago for "sexually explicit material," shortly after its substantial update to version 2.0. The banishment of Reddit is Fun caused quite a stir, primarily because Google's decision to ban the app seemed to be based on a vague policy regarding apps that give users the ability to find explicit material.

Well, here's a twist for you. Apple Google has just banned Reddit Is Fun from the App Store Google Play Store due to "sexually explicit material." The author of the app has taken to (where else?) Reddit to voice his concerns and ask for advice in getting his apps reinstated. It may be a simple problem to solve, however.

The move comes shortly after Reddit Is Fun received an update to version 2.0 and was split into two apps.

Following the controversy surrounding a potentially leaked image of Samsung's upcoming Galaxy SIII, many were left (still) wondering just what Sammy's flagship would actually look like. Thickening the plot significantly, a Redditor has stepped up and posted what is claimed to be a real photo of the actual Galaxy SIII, provided by an employee of Samsung.

Just under an hour ago, the Redditor (using a throwaway or one-off account), posted the photo, claiming that the Samsung employee provided not only a photo, but some juicy details as well.

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.

Okay, so Redditastic isn't technically an app, but it is a pretty sweet widget that lets you throw your favorite subreddits on one of your homescreens. Unfortunately it's only currently available for devices running Honeycomb or ICS, and it probably won't see any previous builds of Android simply because scrollable widgets aren't supported by them unless you use a custom launcher. That being said, if you do own a supported device, this Reddit widget is definitely one to check out.

Those who just can't get enough /r/Android in their daily life have probably heard of an app called BaconReader - a Reddit client for Android devices. We spent some time with the alpha of the app back in April, and the app has came a long way since then. It's progressed so much, in fact, that it was recently acquired by OneLouder Apps, the dev team behind some awesome apps like FriendCaster, TweetCaster, and ChannelCaster.

Today's Ice Cream Sandwich announcement yielded a number of exciting enhancements, but not quite as distinctive as the new font Roboto. Indeed during the keynote, the presenter spent an inordinate amount of time expounding the virtues of this font. Roboto is a sans-serif font with characters that have a pleasing roundness, and are spaced evenly, making e-mails, clocks, and menus easy on the eyes, and, in the words of one presenter, "a pleasure to read".

I love Reddit. Like, alot. I also love Android. So naturally, I get pretty excited about new Reddit apps for Android. There are quite a few of them out there to choose from, ranging from full-on Reddit readers like Reddit is Fun, to purpose specific apps, like RedditTV or Reddit Pics. The holy grail of Reddit apps is a browsing app that has all of the functionalities of the web Reddit experience, while being easy to use and good looking.

In a discussion with Valve co-founder and frontman Gabe Newell, PoliticalGamer caught wind of Valve's interest in expanding its Steam operations onto both iOS and Android.
