Great Source For Anything!

I love Reddit so much just because of the entertainment it gives alone. I love seeing new stuff coming out like technology, crypto/stocks (any market stuff), animal videos, political stories and most recent stuff happening in the world, history, art, music, fitness/yoga/health, crazy cars, crazy stunts, funny videos and pictures, so on and so on. I could list way more stuff but I would take me forever. Those are just the ones that stood out to me while writing this. And finding people and talking to them about certain things can help shape the way you think about those topics. It also taught me how to “agree to disagree”. I feel like a lot of younger people of the newer generations have a hard time with that. I myself had that problem. I’m about to be 21. All though real life experiences shape you a lot more because you can express tone and emotion. In text that’s very hard to read if the discussion/comment isn’t detailed. You also don’t know the person at all so you have to keep that in mind. Sign up ASAP! If you need a source for anything you can think of, Reddit most definitely has a /r for you. You won’t regret it!

Please let me remove the scroll button!

Overall the app is quite good. Very fluid, easy to navigate to my favorite subreddits quickly; basically does everything I’d expect from a Reddit client. HOWEVER, there is one feature that drives me absolutely batty. The scroll button. You know the one. The one where you accidentally click it and it sends you to the bottom of the thread you’re currently reading. There is already a perfectly good feature for this: pressing and holding on the screen collapses the current top-level comment and all child comments. I have had this app since the day it came out and have never, not once, pressed that button on purpose. Most of the time I just stick it in the top right corner and it stays out of the way, where it still creates a minor visual annoyance, but if that was all that happened I would not be writing this review. No, not only can I not get rid of it, it won’t even stay where I put it. Every so often, the button will jump back to its default location, and will not let me move it above that height on the screen. It’s annoying, it’s USELESS, because as I said there is already a feature that accomplishes the same thing, and I can’t remove it. Absolutely horrible feature. Please remove it from the app or at the very least give me an option to remove it. As it stands this app is two stars. Remove this infernal button and it will be five.

You cannot have an opinion and you have to think the same way everyone else does :/!

The issue with Reddit is you can’t actually have an opinion, and by that I mean valid opinions that are harmless such as which chip flavor is better or little things like that. The downvote feature penalizes you for getting downvoted, such as it’ll hide your comments or not let you post on certain subreddits if you don’t have enough. For example on the hello fresh subreddit, there was a question asking if they think the price is worth it and only people who agreed yes had upvotes and they downvoted anyone who said they personally didn’t feel like it was worth it. You make a thread asking a question and to have people voice their different harmless opinions, yet they got downvoted? This just proves you have to think the same mindset as everyone else, which is just not how the real world works. The downvote feature should be replaced with if a comment gets reported a certain amount of time it’s automatically deleted, since there could be racist comments or creepy ones that need to get deleted which is understandable. Yet it’s tiring to get downvoted for simple things. People will literally go as far as checking your whole post history and page just to add on to a downvote and prove their point, which is super … odd to me. I honestly just don’t like posting at this point, because even for simple questions I get downvoted if people find it too boring, which is dumb.

Censoring People & Turning A Blind Eye

Reddit can be a nice platform for many people for many things such as cooking, music, discussions about video games, etc. My biggest issue regarding this platform is the lack of accountability people face. For example, when there is a problem with a moderator being rude or abusing their power to ban people, the Reddit Administration turns a blind eye. They don’t listen and claim they are “sorry” but they truly aren’t. They don’t care. There are rules for moderators and for subreddits so that no one crosses the line; however, it has become hypocritical they list these rules yet they never enforce them. I have reached out to the administration to make them aware of this fact. They say there is nothing they can do to help. Reddit, like many social media platforms that exist today, can offer wonderful experiences. The issue arises when these platforms don’t take responsibility for censoring people that never deserved it, and looking away when there are people who are actually breaking rules and spreading hateful comments. It is the one of the most toxic experiences anyone could have. Especially, when you know your voice doesn’t actually mean anything because at the end of the day, it won’t matter to them because you are just one person. This is very concerning and wrong. Reddit needs to be put into check or else they will continue this negligent behavior.

Banned for no reason

This app is so sensitive. I got heavily downvoted then BANNED PERMANENTLY for saying ‘I think you need to read the post again..’ which the person did.. He asked a question that was ANSWERED IN THE POST and was heavily informed about that exact question. And since I got downvoted hard, and I guess some people reported me, I got banned. I tried to make another account but they banned that one too. I’m scared that they banned my IP address because my mom uses Reddit and I don't want her account to get banned just because mine did.. I looked up this issue and this is a HUGE problem on reddit. You literally can’t have your own opinion on this app, or say anything that will POSSIBLY upset people. And if you do, its downvotes, downvotes, downvotes. Then it will be led by subreddit banning or permanent banning. I can understand if someone was being racist, homophobic or just disrespectful. But I see the simplest comments get downvoted. One time, on r/aww it was a video of a woman with her dog at the gym and the dog was being cute or whatever. Some people were wondering why she was allowed to have a dog at the gym so someone answered saying, “She owns the gym, so thats why the dog is there:)” and it had -30 DOWNVOTES??!! WHY?! People on that app are SO sensitive! And they were right!! I looked it up and she did own the gym! And guess what? I tried to click on their account and it was banned. Probably for literally just that one comment. Do better Reddit.

Mods have too much power

The way Reddit works essentially is that anyone can claim a subreddit that isn’t already taken and create their own mod team. This means if you don’t want people to talk about baseball cards and you are the first person to get the subreddit r/baseballcards you can essentially shut down any conversation from ever happening about the subject on the platform. Not only that, if they actually want to let people talk about it they can police and ban them w/o giving any reason meaning subreddits often become home to power hungry mods who ban you for disagreeing with them even if not directly. Reddit has no problem with this because the site is big enough that the people effected don’t make enough noise to cause problems for the rest of the users nor do they have any form of recourse. They can appeal to the mod team of the subreddit but they will more than likely end up talking to the person who banned them. You can appeal directly to the Reddit mod team but like I said, they won’t care because as a mod you can ban anyone for any reason so they will say they aren’t breaking any rules. And don’t fool yourself if you are thinking this kind of degenerate mod behavior is exclusive to political subs and the like, it is every corner of reddit. The mods have too much power so of course it goes to their heads. There needs to be some kind of standard mods are held to, it has completely ruined the website.

Fix the Bottom Bar Please!

Writing a review hoping this gets fixed so I can change the rating to five stars. The app will randomly change the orientation of the tabs at the bottom of the screen. Sometimes the app will open with my home page and five buttons at the bottom with the notifications on the far right, which is ideal. However, sometimes it opens to the world news tab and instead of a notifications tab, there is one that says “more” with three dots, where I can then click on notifications from a menu. Not only is this an annoying extra couple steps, there is no need for it since there is nothing else. On top of that, when I view my notifications this way, I cannot get to my profile in the same notifications tab. I can bring up the sidebar while viewing notifications, but when I click on my profile it just returns to my notification feed. Thought it was something that surely would have gotten caught and fixed quickly but the app was updated two days ago and this is still happening.

Banned for speaking the truth.

I saw a news piece on the news section stating. Things in regards to sex change operations for transgender‘s. Along with how kids should be able to start taking steps to transition as young as the age of four. So I then commented that I do not believe that it is right that taxpayer dollars should have to pay for a transitioning surgery. If it’s so important and you want it done you should get it done yourself with your own money and not tax payer dollars. And I also said that for young people they should not be able to take any steps in regards to transitioning until they are adults themselves. They should not even be thinking about that kind of stuff let alone start transitioning at 4 years old. I cannot believes that these honest and truthful statements were enough to get me banned but there are Reddit pages with such gruesome stuff that is not a problem . But because what I said is truthful and a hard pill to swallow by many I was banned. And they won’t even let me delete my account now. I will never support the organization that allows one very sensitive side to silence another without valid reason. I do not and will never support Reddit. They are fearful to let facts or truth of one side be on their site. Show which way their organization leans. :: I’ll give you a hint it’s not in the direction of free speech. I am not afraid to speak the truth and never will.

The Real Problem

So I’ve been on Reddit for around a week and I really loved it! The community was great and there was a lot to do there until recently. One day I went on and seemed to not be able to comment or post anything. I then found out a thing called being Shadowbanned which is what reddit dose to people if they break there rules. I find this reasonable as there needs to be a moderated platform for people. I looked more into it and went to the subreddit r/shadowban to see if I was shadowbanned and turns out I was. I then took the past 30 mins to got though the comments and posts I ever made and didn’t see anything. Of course if I got shadowbanned I have to happen to break the rules somehow, so I went to the mods them self’s to not be unshadowbanned but more of what I did wrong. Unfortunately to the dismay of me they never replied so I sent them any message asking kindly what I have done. The same thing happened and to this day I still don’t know why I got shadowbanned. Though all of this I’ve made 3 accounts and all shaowbanned trying to to break the rules, one of those accounts I literally made only 3 comments. I never written a Apple review before but this app has gotten me so upset I had to write a review. Reddit needs to implement something for people and get there acted together if they ever want me back again, I’m really disappointed with everything they did.

New update is broken and frustrating

After the new 2022 update where they removed the communities tap and put in a discovery tab is just annoying. I’m still not use to it. I keep clicking it trying to get to my communities by mistake. I already follow all the communities I want to, and if I want to find a new community for an interest, I just search it in the search bar. Plus the “drawer” for my communities does not work. Every time I click it, it doesn’t load anything. So basically I haven’t even been able to use Reddit for the past few weeks since the update. No point in using the app till this problem is fixed. The Communities tab needs to go back down to the hot bar. And the discovery tab should be moved elsewhere. Maybe it can pop up after selecting the search bar. That way if someone wants to search for new communities, they can get recommendations under the search bar before they start typing. Also bring back the alphabet select for communities we follow. It makes searching through 100+ communities easier. Summary: new update is broken and can’t access my communities drawer because nothing loads. And the new discovery tab that replaced the communities tab needs to be moved elsewhere, and the communities tab needs to go back down to the bottom for quick access.

Where are my communities?

Well, it finally happened - I finally ditched the official Reddit app for a Reddit client. A lot of users have had issues with many of the updates and general usability of the official app over the last couple of years but I hung in there. The final straw for me was when an update released a couple of weeks ago made it so my communities no longer display and it times out whole searching for them. I researched it, and others are experiencing the same thing which has been reported to Reddit but no fix has been provided in the handful of subsequent updates. I tried out a few other options and landed on an app that is reminiscent of Reddit’s glory days, complete with a responsive developer who interacts with the community and updates the app based on suggestions from actual users. Sorry Reddit, I love the platform but your app has degenerated so much I’ve decided it’s time to go - I’m leaving you for a third party app. Even if this bug were to be fixed and you change your ways, I’m happy with my new crush and don’t foresee myself coming back to you. It was fun while it lasted and I’ll look back on those years fondly, but you’ve changed for the worst - best of luck to you and your developers. Off I go, to spend time with my new Reddit squeeze :)

Perfect App

Reddit is the best social media app available out of every single social media app that the majority of the population uses, like even though TikTok is very main stream right now, it can get really old, always seeing the same videos and what not, but Reddit however is like a fresh breath of air, constantly updated, pages for every single content out there- literally anything you can think of and you want to see wether it’s just a hobby, something funny, wanting to learn new stuff or even just people fighting, wanting to find something new, or you are curious legit anything you can think of you will be able to find a Reddit page for it, I never have any issues with Reddit— no lagging, no connection issues, I never seen the same videos over and over again, the app is super easy to use and learn so no excuses to not have the app unless you just really don’t want to download it or have an account, you can just go through Reddit with a guest account aswell, perfect app! Deserves all 5 stars I gave it, keep doing you reddit !! 😁😁😁☺️

Stupid gif playing

Currently the app likes to open some gifs like their livestream content. Meaning, swiping moves to the next stream, and not the next post in the subreddit. Extremely annoying. Gif continues playing when viewing comments (most annoying when their is sound). Gifs auto play with sound even though I have the setting set as never auto play (probably for videos, but this should apply to gifs, especially with sound). Keep them separate from the livestream interface which is annoying as heck. Maybe it’s not livestream, but directly uploaded videos hosted on Reddit. IDK. But the interface disrupts a smooth browsing experience. Don’t make it a separate interface. Just make it like it was. Gifs and videos should not be like the livestream interface. That should just be thrown out, since it bumps you to content other than what sub you were on when you try to swipe for the next post. Try it. Click on a video/ gif. It’ll be the broadcast interface allowing you only to swipe up or down to the next broadcast. You can swipe to it and it’ll be like normal from the previous post. FIX IT. Broadcast navigation is terrible. Stop pushing it. It’s so disruptive I am switching to Apollo until it is fixed.

Not Working, Design Changes Hurt User Experience

This app was working just fine until the recent updates where Reddit has (1) swapped the video player with a TikTok wannabe video players and forced videos to sticky to the top of posts and (2) replaced the bottom communities tab that conveniently listed recent communities, favorited communities, and all other joined communities with an Pinterest-like browse tab which includes none of my communities. Now to get my communities list I have to tap a More button in the left - which is difficult to reach on an iPhone 12 Max - to open a side pane that wasn’t loading until I opened and closed the app a bunch of times (suggested by an admin on r/Redditmobile). What’s even worse is that if I want to jump to another one of my communities I **cannot**. I’m forced to tap the arrow in the top of the screen to exit the community, then I have to tap the More button to open the pane AGAIN, and then I can scroll to my desired community. The extra tap is annoying and frustrating. I wish these forced changes were optional so I could sidestep these weird choices whatever leaders at Reddit are forcing because they want to increase engagement in more boring normie communities that may have more ads.

I love Reddit but this app man…

I don’t understand why I can’t do broad searches within the Reddit app but rather have to search it in safari. Although frustrating, I have gotten used to having to google search my questions/communities BUT what really begins to frustrate me is that when I search in safari, 99% of the time I have to open it in app to view the posts which is always such a process. I have to click “take me to app” and it always takes me to the App Store- it never actually opens in app. Then, what’s even more annoying is there are so many updates that before I can even enter the app I have to wait for the app to update for the millionth time. And mind you, I search for answers on Reddit more than I probably should so I have to do this process of updating the app and then click at least 5 times to take me to the app before it even opens in the app!! Like it doesn’t register the first few times and just takes me to the App Store where I press “open” only to be brought to the main Reddit feed and not what I searched for. So while I am unable to read it on safari I am also unable to read it in the app. Super frustrating! I love Reddit I just feel like this shouldn’t be an issue so I’m hoping someone sees this to make the app more user friendly!

An interesting type of app

This app is a very unique app because of the countless communities this place has, you can just scroll scroll down once and you can find another great subreddit just waiting for you, not to mention most subreddits are incredibly funny, interesting, and some directed to your liking. Granted, the app has minor flaws, such as the people that overreact to the slightest things, the fact some videos can break your ears, and some can even show you something weird, or gross. But the fact that there’s so many good things, plus some bad things might not even exist for you, weigh down the negative things about the app for miles on end that they don’t bother you at all really, it’s a good app and it pretty much cures any boring time, (not at funerals, Not at funerals, not at funerals, not at funerals) and it allows people to express their creativity in many ways, this app is worth getting for the entertainment it will give you

Now requires account to follow

I’m not really into social media due to the lack of privacy and mundane content. Reddit is the most I do. I really liked that I could follow more positive, uplifting feeds and as a result didn’t have to stroll thru everything. Since it was updated (the previous one, not the one 5 days ago), now it asks you to create an account to follow specific feeds. I don’t know if you can still view only your chose feeds cuz I don’t care to create an account when I didn’t have to before. Looking at Reddit in its entirety influences me negatively, hence the reason I only followed Calvin & Hobbes, Earth Porn, Humans Being Bros, and Animals Being Bros. Before the update, Reddit started with my feed and I had the option to view Popular. Now all you have is Popular and News. I gave the new update a try for over two months but now I find myself feeling anxious or angry after strolling Reddit, just as I used to do before I began following more positive feeds only. Creating an account may be a simple matter for many but it’s not for me. To me it’s another way for tech to have some of your private information when it’s not necessary. I don’t do comments or votes so why should I have to sign in? So after giving the new Reddit a try, I’ve decided it’s best for me to delete it.

I haven’t had any issues with the app till now—video player, I’m looking at you.

Man, sometimes I like to watch 5 second long videos, read the comments for a couple minutes, and get on with my day. Unfortunately now I can’t even do that because the video keeps looping, which turns my comment reading session into a torture session. Come on, is that tiktok ripoff trend so lucrative that you have to jump on it too? Nobody on Reddit wants tiktok on the platform—if they did they’d be using tiktok. Stop trying to be like the social media giants and go back to being your own thing! That’s why your user base exists and you’re gonna lose a lot of us if you keep making these awful choices. Ok but for real, the video player UI is just awful. On everything else the upvote/downvote buttons are on the left, but on the video player they’re on the right. The pause button is tiny. Pressing the “comments” icon takes you to the video instead of the comments, and to read the comments you have to pause the video first (if you care about your sanity). Scrolling on the video no longer takes you to the comments but to another random video. You can do better. Or wait, how bout you just go back to what was there? I never had an issue with the old player.

One annoyance...

I honestly like the official Reddit app way better than any other third-party apps I've tried. However, I have one minor annoyance that's grown into a major gripe over time: whenever I use Safari to Google search something, and a Reddit post is in the search results, if I click the link there's a pop-up that says "See Reddit in..." and I have the option to open the page in the Reddit app or continue with the web browser. My problem is, whenever I try to open the page in the Reddit app, I'm sent to the app store as if I hadn't installed the app. I have never been able to open a link from Safari in the Reddit app, and I've tried everything. The app is up to date, I've tried opening the app before clicking the link and it still won't take me to the app. Honestly, if this was fixed I'd give 5 stars. The Reddit app is really good. But this is just so annoying, and it's difficult to search for a specific post within the app so there's no real workaround. So I'm just hoping the devs see this and find a way to fix it. I'm using an iPhone XR 128GB, if that matters.

Somebody Janked Up iOS Users Posting This Update

Sooooo... I literally CAN NOT post anywhere now because I am getting the message "Not Allowed In This Community" on every single subreddit. I can comment, vote, give awards, and even spend currency on your app without any issue... ??!!BUT I CAN'T POST ANYWHERE BECAUSE YOUR iOS APP IS MAKING ME AS EITHER NSFW OR SOMETHING ALONG THAT LINES THAT'S LEFT ME BARRED FROM DOING THE ONE THING I USE REDDIT FOR!!?? It's not just myself but also many other iOS users whom are experiencing the exact same problem with no response, fix in app, tech support, or an update to fix this MAJOR BUG. If you aren't aware of this issue by now then you should be. An I can go figure you are all well aware; but you just don't care unless it is affecting a large majority, all users, or could hinder the income of this lazy but more than capable to be a better company regardless of current worth it should/could be... Money and Power must truly be something... Because every company that is built on a foundation of users like myself; every last one of these companies have forgotten why they are running a social networking community to begin with. For the user becomes a thing of the past... Every time... An it becomes ALL ABOUT HOW MUCH MORE OF A PERCENT THEY CAN NET NEXT ROUND
