Do you miss old Reddit? Consider Reddit is Fun for your phone (Review)

There are a lot of people who are very vocal about their hatred for Reddit’s new looks. I tend to agree with them as a lot of decisions that seem to have been made with a “form over function” mentality.

Additionally, Reddit’s official mobile app leaves much to be desired; the mobile web is a cluttered mess. Although there are several strong contenders to fill the void, Reddit is Fun has been a fan-favorite for years. It is easy to  [Read More…]
