Reddit apps are a hugely popular type of app in the Play Store - from Relay to Slide, reddit is fun to the official reddit app, there's one for every use-case. Today one of the most downloaded reddit apps, Sync for Reddit, is getting a huge update to version 11, bringing a full material redesign that has been written from the ground up. The update has been available in an alpha format since January, but this is the first release to anyone who uses the app.
- This is it, the big one!
- Material animations & transitions
- Automatic subreddit theming
- Automatic comment caching
- Inline link previews, no more risky clicks!
Reddit Sync is one of the numerous apps Android users can grab in the Play Store to keep up with the site from a mobile device. With the release of version 10, the UI has been hit with a dose of Material Design, just like the Android subreddit before it. The menu button's been detached from the edge of the screen, the side menu now covers up the action bar, and the status bar has turned a tinted shade of blue.
Even the navigation bar is blue. But since some of us would consider that going overboard, the developers have put a toggle on the settings page. Read More
It took me a really long time to jump on the reddit train. I would look at it occasionally, but only in recent months have I really started to enjoy using it. Part of that is due to Reddit Sync – it's just a killer, well-designed app that I wanted to use more after covering its UI overhaul back in December. Ever since then, I haven't gone a day without firing up the app and checking out what's happening across the 'net.
Today, Reddit Sync gets even better. It has been updated to version 9, which brings a handful of really nice enhancements to the app:
- gfycat support
- Trending subreddits (at the top of frontpage and all)
- ActionBar colors
- Restyled drawers
- Bug fixes galore
You can't really tell, but the last shot is a GIF from gfycat. Read More
Are you in the Reddit Sync beta program? Well, now you might have a reason to join. The dev has just pushed version 8.0.54 with support for transparent system bars on Android 4.4.
There may be plenty of fish in the sea, but that doesn't make it any less unpleasant when your old love changes in ways you just can't get behind. So if you're bummed about the new UI brought in by the latest version of reddic sync, one of the many reddit clients available for Android, then you may be happy to know that the developer is throwing you a bone. Now a classic version is available that offers the interface you were accustomed to before that update notification came along bringing more changes than you were expecting.
The reddit sync update that rolled out just a few days ago introduced a new card-based UI and a hamburger menu that left a bad taste in some users' mouths, as any massive redesign is prone to do. Read More
