This is the most simplistic modern/metro design reddit client on Windows 8 that I am aware of.

Pretty slick

Only real complaint is the box that pops up for commenting. When you're using a Touch-Screen it is a little weird. Ok, and the vertical orientation is awkward. But, I love that it can snap, and it is a really clean design.

Could be the best, just needs a couple of tweaks.

Fast, nice looking. My one change is that I would like to know which sub reddit each article is in when viewing the front page without having to click on it.

Love the look and layout, but for some reason any gifs load super slowly, and continue looping in super slow-motion whereas in other apps, gifs are slow as they first load, then speed up to "regular" speed and loop. *Update* Works fine on my PC - encountered this problem on my Surface so that may not be the app's fault.

Solid App

Runs well, nice layout, fluid. My only gripe is lack of showing what subreddit the link is to when on the FrontPage/all. You have to click into the picture/article to see what subreddit its from, if this was displayed on the left hand side with the comment count and URL it would be perfect!

Great interface...

It just needs a way to save pictures.

Great but....

If you tab out of the app and go back into it, it completely restarts the app and loses whatever article you were on. So if you are a person that tabs in and out of reddit frequently throughout the day, don't use this app.

A clean excellent app for reading reddit

was a big fan of alien blue for ipad, this isn't quite there, but its getting close! Best reddit app on windows 8! 4/5 stars because app frequently crashes when bringing it back into view.

Great app with a few flaws

I need to say right of the bat that this app is absolutely (appsolutely?) beautiful. In fact, the main reason I chose it over others like ReddHub and Reddit to Go is because of how well it was designed. That being said, it does definitely have some issues, and its flaws, especially the lack of any way to read messages or comment/post replies. With a little polishing though, it could turn out to be the AlienBlue/BaconReader of Windows 8. Keep up the good work!

Needs Live Tile

Great app. Love the minimalism. Needs live tile and notifications to be perfect. My favorite reddit app though so far.
