Ads Ruined App

There are legit popup ads when just scrolling through subreddits. Also popup video ads.

Annoying Ads

Has video/audio ads that auto play, extremely annoying as they pop up randomly as you scroll.

Intrusive Ads, Missing Features

The app is more or less stable and works for what it is but its missing several basic features such as the ability to browse to a user profile. It also automatically plays ads with audio while you're scrolling through.

Autoplays Ads with Sound

Autoplayed a car ad with sound when I opened it today. Immediately deleted it and moved to another app

Auto-Play video Ads

App was fantastic, banner ads and promoted ads within the feed, but all perfectly within reason for a free app. Those have now been replaced with auto playing video ads with audio, time to find a new app.

Once was the best, now it's garbage

This app was the go-to way to browse Reddit on the go a year ago... Now? Pop up ads -- both video and otherwise -- litter the experience as well as crashes and other annoyances. I just had an invisible ad playing in the background with the only way to silence it was killing the entire app. Or deleting it, which has worked great for me. You've lost yet another one devs.

Don't bother

Auto play ads with audio, full screen pop up ads with no 'x' button, randomly opens the App Store despite my not clicking an ad. This isn't a Reddit app, is an ad app. The ads are painfully intrusive, and not worth the bandwidth.

Gotten much worse lately

This app was my go to Reddit app when I first got my iPhone. Recently I've been dealing with crazy bugs with the ads where they pop up telling me I've won a new iPhone and don't stop playing sound. The app closes constantly, it doesn't open images as nice as it used to. GIFs only load 25% of the time. It now forces safari to open as well. I'm switching over to the official Reddit app for now, much better user experience.

Audio Ads
C. Gryphon

I don't mind ads on free apps. But in this app, there are video ads that have audio that you can't turn off. It's horrible. I am on the hunt for an alternative app.

Intrusive video/sound ads

I don't mind ads on the app, but when they start playing video and very loud sounds which cannot be quieted or turned down, that's a serious problem. It eats my bandwidth like crazy. Do not download.
