Crashes way too damned much

This app crashes multiple times a day.

Force closing

Loved this app, until iOS 11 ruined it. Force closing randomly and I still send report after report...

Jumping issue bug NOT fixed...
Not A Special Snowflake

Wow, that’s absolutely terrible. I didn’t have a problem before this most recent update (12/23) but now I do. It’s so bad that I can’t even just deal with it until the the next fix.

I bought it

Get app I spend most of the time on my phone on it

Behind The Curve

I really wanted to like BaconReader. I used it for almost a year, in which several problems surfaced. While I think this is a decent attempt at a competitor for the official app, it isn't a replacement. The main thing BR has going for it is the ability to switch to gallery view. This works well for photo-heavy subreddits. My main gripe is with formatting. When I post something that is more than two paragraphs long, I'd like to be able to add space those paragraphs without having to resort to HTML. Here, this lack of WYSIWYG formatting means posts and comments show up as an annoying wall of text. I hate that. White space is extremely important to me and to many readers. Perhaps reviewing their formatting structure will make me more likely to use this app in the future.

Bad Request (400)

Won’t even load any posts.

Was great, new bug in last update makes it unusable

Was fine, last update a bug got through where if you are typing a comment and the text expands below the initial box the entire screen starts lurching with each new character input. Has rendered it unusable unfortunately. Will happily change score back if/when this is addressed.
