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…]

On a budget? You can get a cheap Samsung phone for under $250

You don’t have to shell out $ 1,000 for a quality phone with all the features. Sometimes you only want the essentials, and sometimes you don’t have the budget to spend on a Samsung Galaxy S9, for example.
