Google Play Reviews

  1. Andy Wiley-avatar

    This app is generally awesome, but it inconsistently responds to Android 10 gestures. Sometimes it takes multiple swipes up from the bottom to get out of the app and back to the home screen. Other times the back gestures does nothing. It works properly probably 90% of the time and I am unable to discern any pattern to this behavior.

  2. Inflames128gg-avatar

    Great simplistic app, although I gave only 4 stars because the error messages are very vague - for example if a search query times out it just says "No threads here. Tap to refresh" as if I obtained a search answer, I would like to have the error messages say if it's a server side problem instead of saying that vague error message.

  3. Mike Burgess-avatar

    Clean design, efficient and easy to use UI, NO ADS!, well-organized layout with, customizable feeds in just a few taps, and a search feature that actually works. Kicks the balls off the "official" app. 7/10

  4. Jack Jennings-avatar

    Generally good although I can't actually post at all anymore. Every time I try I get an error saying 'you're doing that too much', and it seems to have saved a load of drafts of the same message. Bizarre.

  5. Dave Grvn-avatar

    Coming from Joey app. Hope this works out better with the force close issues I had there. So far so good and the UI looks just about the same. Wish I could put the post title under the images on cards though

  6. Dalton Chaney-avatar

    Works much more consistantly than the official app, even if the layout is a little dated. None of the little glitches of the official app, and saves videos in full quality.

  7. Rinzler-avatar

    Cache and data should copy over from unpaid to paid version. Recently, downloaded videos are without sound. It didn't used to be like that

  8. Branflakes 4547-avatar

    Branflakes 4547


    I have used this app for years and years. Every so often, when you would go to post, or comment, the page would refresh and your post would not have gone through. This was first an intermittent issue, but now it occurs nearly every single time I try to post. I have to say, I have only been able to make one or two posts in the last few months because of this infuriating flaw. I used to prefer, and recommend this app, but it has now become useless. And yes I have kept the app updated

  9. Nigel Stoner-avatar

    Overall a great experience. Needs a bit of tweaking to get r\misleadingthumbnails working though.

  10. Eric Rivera-avatar

    Very good app. Good interface. Does exactly what it says it does. No problems here. Super satisfied

  11. IrishGeiger-avatar

    5-Star app for browsing Reddit. Completely superior to the official one in format, usage, loading speed, quality of life features, etc. Only two complaints: one major and one minor. Minor complaint: no notifications received until you open the app, whether it be from DM's or comments. Major: The subreddit for feedback on this app is awful and needs to be under new management.

  12. Peter S-avatar

    For years, updates have been seamless. Endless customization; Have never had any issues.

  13. Santtu Poikonen-avatar

    Santtu Poikonen


    App itself is well made, but it lacks privacy options. You cannot turn off any of the multiple trackers. Shame.

  14. Mike Ocke-avatar

    Very user friendly, easy to use and customize. Even better app than the official.

  15. Nicole MacLean-avatar

    Overall pretty good. Doesn't have a news specific feed which I find really useful.

  16. Peter B-avatar

    Pretty great. Primarily contextual based so you click things and get options. It has features I didn't know I needed like collapsing root/parent comments.

  17. Daniel W-avatar

    A few quirks the app has that Reddit didn't. Overall much better though. The new icon name bugs me though... Reddit is fun is fun...

  18. Metroxide-avatar

    Ive been using this app since my account was made in 2013, and I physically cannot use reddit browser on my PC or any other app because I like this one so much. Thank you for supporting this app for so long.

  19. Michael Deschamps-avatar

    Michael Deschamps


    My go to app, always reliable and fast. Easy to use and great overall.

  20. Vicky Vixen-avatar

    Should be the default app for Reddit. I love this app! Things I like the most: - old reddit layout: new reddit sucks for me. I just can't get used to it. - barely crashes - active developers - very user-friendly: easy to navigate, readability is godlike! - plays all the formats including webm - works on all types of screen sizes - very fast, loads faster than the web page of Reddit - in-app reading, for example: news sites, loads them in the app without loading your browser.

  21. Jason Meredith-avatar

    Love the app BUT a note for the developer I think it has a memory leak it starts to slow down more and more the longer I use it so I'm constantly restarting. Maybe I'm the only one experiencing this or maybe I'm crazy but it's something I'd look into. Great app either way

  22. Christian Smith-avatar

    Christian Smith


    Was great until it became incapable of loading gifs or videos, saying there is an error determining media format.

  23. Catherine Walker-avatar

    Catherine Walker


    I prefer using this app than on a desktop or even the official reddit app, easy to use and is visually appealing. But a recent app changed the name to rif is fun, which means Reddit is fun is fun :((

  24. Robbert Rietveld-avatar

    Robbert Rietveld


    Better then the official app. Clean interface, loads fast, no crashes.

  25. okiking01-avatar

    Big fan of the app, i use it very often but i have an issue with posts that have a lot of text that causes the app to crash. Ive reported it several times and got no response. Still a good app though.

  26. Harish Rajagopal-avatar

    Harish Rajagopal


    I cannot find any dedicated page for my history. If it doesn't exist, please create one. Also, the UI can be made a bit cleaner.

  27. Ben Garcia-avatar

    Works great. Does a great job of replicating most of the features you would use. It would be cool to get a Mute feature. it would be nice to be able to mute a sub - you won't see said subs posts in all or front page view, but only if you go directly to it. Be it to avoid spoilers, spam or trolls.

  28. Jason Redwood-avatar

    Tried the three other top apps including the actual Reddit app but this one fits my needs best. It's succinct and easy to use with more details visible in a single view. It doesn't look as pretty but for me pretty is second to functionality and UX. What I would really like is an app like antenna on iOS. You can navigate and use Reddit entirely with one hand on an iPad. With phones getting bigger I would love to see an Android app like this as well.

  29. ViciousTwist-avatar

    "Error determining video format" I'm sick of seeing this error. Just play the video!

  30. Aman Shah-avatar

    The go forward after you accidently pressed the back button is FREAKING AMAZING. So many times, scrolling through subreddits you find something good but accidently click the back button and have to scroll all over again was so frustrating. 5/5

  31. Justin Bigelow-avatar

    Okay so after using this app for a while now I find using desktop reddit (new or old) to be super frustrating. This app is awesome. I updated my review due to my pixel 2 Xl dying. This app works great on my old Samsung galaxy nexus circa 2012. Better than most other apps. Im kinda blown away that it works well on both phones, good job devs!

  32. Robert Hopkins-avatar

    Very solid app. Might use it more than the main desktop site. Like that you can turn off features in exchange for an ad free view. Miss having the "hot, new, top, etc" tabs stick to the top as you scroll down though.

  33. Carlos Aldridge-avatar

    Carlos Aldridge


    Someone else commented the same but I'm starting to see some slowdowns when opening gifs/videos in app even on wifi

  34. Crystal Harmon-avatar

    I have multiple accounts for different things with different favorites for what the account is for and now my favorite subreddits don't change when I change accounts. Very annoying!

  35. Sonny Ellis-avatar

    Choosing to activate notifications when something is posted to a sub often doesn't work reliably.

  36. Jeffrey Archer-avatar

    It's better than the pc version of reddit if you ask me. No ads. Flawless and fun. Thank you guys! Excellent work!

  37. Viktor F-avatar

    Nothing compares to this app, not even desktop. There's just something about it. Love it!!

  38. theChulives-avatar

    I love the app itself, but had to give it 1 star because a recent update changed the name of the app. Use to be RIF (Reddit is Fun). Now it's RIF is Fun. Reddit is Fun is Fun? That doesn't even make sense

  39. lucitribal-avatar

    It's one of the best ways to use Reddit on mobile. There are still a few small things I'd like to see like viewing crossposts but it's almost as good as old Reddit with RES on PC.

  40. Justice Ariaroo-avatar

    Justice Ariaroo


    Good app. Rating it 4 stars because it was initially not showing nsfw thumbnails. I had to google how to fix it. For anyone having a similar issue you have use your browser to go on reddit and untick hide nsfw posts in settings, then save.

  41. Margo Susanna Tovar-avatar

    Margo Susanna Tovar


    Id be lost without "rif is fun" it is fun as well as eduacating. I love it!

  42. Jeff Hutto-avatar

    Great app! Much better than the official! I really the appreciate the work you guys do in making this app.

  43. Deniz Kortan-avatar

    Used to be amazing, but recently stopped loading pictures after your start scrolling down. No previews showing. And when you click a thread, the picture still does not load. Dissapointing that it still hasn't been fixed.

  44. Ewan Maxwell-avatar

    great app. recently using way more data than before. on the front page, tapping hot or best shows the other one rather than tapped button

  45. Nicholas Collins-avatar

    Nicholas Collins


    The app itself struggles very hard to work on cell data for me. Gifs wont load and play correctly. If I scroll for a while the load times get worse and worse.

  46. Joe Fisher-avatar

    Great app, with a very simple UI. Would be good if some of the features of new Reddit were incorporated ie Chat. Still a worthy download though.

  47. Niall Harding-avatar

    Works, no faffing about, better than the official app - sod that one.

  48. Adrian Tyler-avatar

    Not that great. Especially the fact that it's so difficult to download media. It doesn't need to be this complicated. Back to Boost I go.

  49. ToxicFox113-avatar

    Disappointment. Not the the best Reddit alternate browser many have hailed it to be. Too similar to the old Reddit web design which is the inferior to the new design. Gif autoplay not supported.

  50. Scott Noldy-avatar

    Love the app and its functionality. Only downside is load times for gifs and images slows down for some reason.

  51. Jon Aspan-avatar

    Used this for years, I switched to an iPhone and used Apollo, great experience. Came back to Android and RIF was the first thing I downloaded. Just wish they had a customizable home screen icon like Apollo does.

  52. Tyler W.-avatar

    WHY? I mean hey, you do you... but.. why? The name is kinda odd. Also here's a bug got you - in split screen mode the controls for gifs and video refuse to open at all

  53. Ojami 73-avatar

    Can not use the old Reddit style only has the cancerous new Reddit. The only way to actually change it is to uninstall and reinstall the app to get. The cards selector is broken

  54. Haris Nadeem-avatar

    Best reddit app, very fast, light and easy to use

  55. Brandon Imig-avatar

    Solid app, only giving four stars because it doesn't show cross posts.

  56. Adam Fox-avatar

    Works very well and a simple way to browse. Unobtrusive adverts and great interface.

  57. Eric Regalado-Hernandez-avatar

    Eric Regalado-Hernandez


    Never had an issue and I find it easier to use than the official app.

  58. Nick Vu-avatar

    Been using this for years. Can't see myself using any other app.

  59. jailbird-avatar

    Easy to use, fast loading, nice interface.

  60. Shaun Sp-avatar

    Can't log in with my usual credentials, even renewed my password in case. It just flashes and the fields become empty again

  61. Mina Mansour-avatar

    highly preferred over reddit app, super clean easy to use and fast not to mention way more intuitive change my mind

  62. Jack Hutchison-avatar

    App has gone down hill, nothing works half the time. Comments dont load, images dont load, videos dont load. App has become useless.

  63. Sergey Tarasov-avatar

    Decent app to browse posts and open Reddit links.

  64. C3p0 O-avatar

    Great app very useful and easy to use.

  65. Michael Wibawa-avatar

    Simple and hassle-free way to browse reddit

  66. Joe Held-avatar

    Great interface and user experience. The best mobile Reddit client available by far.

  67. Chris-avatar

    Intuitive interface, good range of settings, much better than regular reddit app

  68. Hassan-avatar

    Best reddit client for mobile by far , has that old reddit aesthetic which is amazing. 10/10 would install again.

  69. André Oliveira-avatar

    André Oliveira


    Gives the feel of old, clear and simple Reddit. It is exactly what I expected and wanted.

  70. Caleb Clark-avatar

    Inability to have access to all feautures and an ad-free experience.

  71. Nicholas Combrink-avatar

    Nicholas Combrink


    Great app. User friendly. Best way to browse reddit.

  72. FillTheVoid-avatar

    Feature and usability wise this is the best Reddit app, but the last month or 2 I've been having tons of issues with posts/images/videos taking forever to load. Also, quite often when I open a post w/comment section the comments won't load until I refresh. Definitely not my internet as it happens on my gigabit connection, and I don't have any issues with any other apps. I just dealt with it for awhile, but it's been happening for a long time now and I think I'm going to end up switching apps.

  73. Nick Gordon-avatar

    I've been using Reddit for decades. This app is the best way to experience it from a mobile device.

  74. Angus Taylor-avatar

    GREAT app. Much better than the native app.

  75. Joe Mathers-avatar

    rif is fun? i love the app but you could of done bettee with the rename to avoid trademarks

  76. Logan Davies-avatar

    Simple, clean. Very unintrusive ads

  77. Jesse Verschaeren-avatar

    Jesse Verschaeren


    It is a bit unintuitive when first using it and figuring out how the layout and UI works, but when you get used to it it works pretty well! It is faster than the official reddit app, and the video- /gif player is better (normal reddit app doesn't always allow for sound etc.). Also important, the app allows for multireddits! I might sometimes still use the normal app since it does display the content of a post directly as opposed to having to click on it to see more.

  78. Jesse Rioseco-avatar

    The UI is not intuitive, but this app performs way better than the official Reddit app.

  79. Jonathan Reid-avatar

    It has been my default way to view Reddit for years but that doesn't mean it's the best. Has crashed many times trying to load certain videos, gifs, and large imgur albums. That being said, it is simple and easy to use and I don't ever plan to stop using it.

  80. David Crawford-avatar

    Easy to use and clean interface

  81. sid grandmastr-avatar

    Best and most lightweight Reddit browser.

  82. Jason Hoemann-avatar

    Used to be amazing, but after updating it no longer allows me to upvote. If fixed would give 5 stars 🤷‍♂️

  83. Jacob Lucero-avatar

    Best way to browse Reddit. Cuts out all the whitespace so you can see the most relevant information

  84. Jake-avatar

    Pictures and videos now seem slow to load

  85. Saurabh Datir-avatar

    Best reddit client for Android hands down. I sincerely thank the developers of this app for creating such a great product. I'm gonna buy the premium version as soon as I get a job haha.

  86. nodorwink-avatar

    Thank you for a viable app outside the actual app. Your's rocks!

  87. shaunswneybro-avatar

    Everything I need from Reddit in an easy to use app. Better than the official imo.

  88. Cameron Minissale-avatar

    Cameron Minissale


    Much better then the standard Reddit app in almost all capacities.

  89. Erik Dahlinghaus-avatar

    Erik Dahlinghaus


    Great app, gets regular updates.

  90. Daniel Smith-avatar

    Great experience. Not covered in adds like regular Reddit.

  91. tidy pog-avatar

    Reddit is bad enough; don't suffer unnecessarily. Clean light interface with good stability

  92. Alex Solokhin-avatar

    Overall, very good. Unfortunately, once your start scrolling a subreddit, you cannot select Hot/New without going all the way to the top. If not for this, I would give 5 stars.

  93. Google User-avatar

    The app used to load images super fast (with history recording and image preloading disabled). Then something changed in the last couple of updates. Now sometimes you wait 2 or 3 second for many pics to load. Clean reinstall didn't help. Either the app changed or Reddit changed. Either way, it got slow

  94. Adam Pezdirtz-avatar

    Almost never malfunctions.

  95. Bill Dullege-avatar

    Great option for Android - feature packed

  96. Aiman Asyraaf-avatar

    Best time-waster on mobile, had to uninstall it to be more productive just to install it again the next day Only complaint is that pressing back immediately takes you to the previous 'page', which can be annoying if you were browsing down a list and accidentally pressed the back button, confirmation button would be neat

  97. Orla Brady-avatar

    Open platform and great threads

  98. Nick Campbell-avatar

    For some reason all the text in the app is in German. I can't find language settings. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling, still in German and no way to figure it out.

  99. HaajPaaj-avatar

    This app removes the slowness from the original reddit app. It felt I was getting notified every time a post showed up originally. If you want a great mobile reddit experience, this app is a must have.

  100. Jacobsen26-avatar

    Simple and rich with features.
