Current mobile reddit sucks, use Paper Reddit instead.

Full version:

I have been becoming more and more aggrevated with Reddit over the last few years. Their current user experience is annoying and their interface is frankly inefficient.

Take a look at the examples below:

In mobile

Every time you are trying to browse on your phone, they harass you about the app. Learn to use a freaking cookie to save the user's preference reddit...

I will give them a little credit for their mobile post design. It is simple and functional.

Yet, as soon as desire to go any further, I reach a roadblock.

What kind of gatekeeping is this reddit? Didn't I already express my desire to stay in the browser. This is unacceptable.

In desktop

Now this is just unbelievable to me. How many posts are visible on a full screen desktop reddit user interface. Let's count them together... 1... Oh, your done already? Yep, that's right. Explain to me how only 1 post fits on a full desktop web app?

Paper Reddit

Due to my frustration with reddit's mobile web application, I just created my own. Took just a few days to make something useable. I now use it everyday instead of their web app.

It's a dead simple reader for the casual reddit user. If you are looking for the full featured version, go find a native reddit app.

Please check out Paper Reddit!
