I hate these tweets it takes very long to materialise like tr2 for 520

I've been waiting for this. The existing reddit apps feel abandoned.

mkmarine says:

Reddit to go works pretty great for me. Yes, it needs updating for opening twitter links, but I haven't found any showstoppers.

I love the app but it crashes like hell in lumia 520. 

Maybe it's because i'm using gdr3

Awesome!!! Cannot wait. :)

Heck freaking yea!

CombatRock says:

Awesome! Works great on my 822 and I use it daily.

DiegoMoBa says:

Is there any chance the app would get baconsync support, it's really the only thing that keeps me from migrating from baconit

AngryNil says:

Very little chance, the guys believe in supporting the official feature available through Reddit Gold.

simtafa says:

Is it going to crash as often as the windows phone 8 version?

Broomcorn says:

Does Readit crush everyone's battery, or just mine? I can feel the 1020 getting warm just browsing Readit...

Doomguy says:

They have solved this problem in the latest beta.

Broomcorn says:

How does one get said beta?

herbertsnow says:

reddit is losing steam, time to move on to something new.

Cryio says:

Joost Meij says:

I'm not that into reddit but this app makes it very interesting
