Baconit v1.8 now in Marketplace

We here at WPC love us some Reddit (as if you couldn't tell) and we're also big fans of Baconit, the metro-style Reddit app.  The oft-updated app has just been upvoted to version 1.8, which packs a whole lot of additions.  Among the major ones is Image Mode for subreddits, which allows full screen viewing, endless image scrolling, comprehensive viewing options (pinch to zoom, drag to pan, double tap to reset) and the ability to save images to your phone.

Other significant changes include:

  • Added landscape support for subreddit, web page, and comment viewers, as well as submit a link
  • Added story domain in to story list
  • Added orientation lock
  • New comments are tracked on stories that have been viewed
  • Fixed long self-text / comment cut off problem
  • Improved web page viewer
  • Improved up vote and down vote hit boxes

There are other changes and fixes as well, which can be viewed in their entirety here.  And as you can see in the change log, version 1.9 is already in the works.

You can download the free version, or reward the developer for a great app with a $1.99 donation.

(Disclaimer I am the dev of Baconit)
 
Reddit is a social news website. The point of reddit is the users submit stories and then other users up or down vote them. Thus the top stories on reddit are the ones with the most up votes, which means they are the most liked.
 
Furthermore, reddit is broken down in to subreddits. When a user posts a new story, they actually post it to a particular subreddit. When you create an account, you can select which subreddits you want to be subscribed to. By picking subreddits that interest you, you end up with a front page of news that is crafted to your interests. (If you are not logged in to reddit the default is to have stories from the top subreddits.)
 
Also, there are comments that go with every submitted story. Comments on reddit are really interesting; they can range from being very informative, to really deep, to really funny.
 
I highly recommend you try reddit (reddit.com or you can use Baconit) and see what it has to offer.  I use reddit every day to get world news, tech news, to learn new stuff, and to be entertained.

I don't mind reddit I'll give the app a try if I like it I'll buy it... if not I'll remove it. Thats me if I see an app that I think I'll use I'll try it out on the try me. I fi'm going to use it I'll buy it if not the only fair thing to do is remove it. People spend time and effort to create apps and should be rewarded for the efforts if one is going to use their work.
