BaconReader for Reddit is free iOS app published by OneLouder
It uses less data, has better functionality, and doesn’t take a week to load. Need I say more?
This was once my favorite app for reading Reddit. Now, when I try scrolling down, ads activate when my thumb touches an ad even if I try to scroll up. It doesn’t matter if you didn’t tap the ad.
I have an incel that won’t leave me alone and every time I try to block him it says he can not be blocked.
It used to be that ads placed in your Reddit feed only opened when you tapped them intentionally. Now they are set to open even if you touch the add while scrolling. This has made the app pretty much unusable for me as ads frequently open multiple times during just a few minutes of scrolling.
I don’t know what’s changed with the app. It’s for years been my Reddit portal and I would still love to use it for years more. However, in the past month, I’ve run into a pretty significant problem. I am sometimes maybe too verbose, but that’s my prerogative... when I go to proofread my comments or posts I’d like to make, the app does a weird somersault and ENTIRELY deletes the essay I had been trying to write. Just like a casual flick in a direction I cannot explain, and the last 20-25 minutes of me curating my post or comment gets completely erased. Whatever point I had hoped to make is lost entirely. There’s no redo, there’s no drafts. Just GONE. I’ve wasted at least 3 hours over the last couple weeks trying to comment or post and lost everything I had been writing. It’s annoying and disheartening. I wasn’t going to get that much feedback anyway. It was like a therapeutic journaling session, and all the energy and effort I put in was wasted and can’t be revisited. Please reinstate a verification of deleting drafts. Why am I even trying to say anything if the app will just disrespect me like this?
As mentioned in all the other reviews ads are everywhere. And if I accidentally touch one while scrolling it proceeds to then open up my Safari app and then also open up the App Store to try to get me to download something.
There’s now a constant ad when scrolling. The ads in the feed are ridiculously sensitive if you happen to stop a scroll on them they automatically open up Safari or the App Store. This was an excellent app for browsing but is now a frustrating experience. Exploring other options for my own sanity.
I’ve been using baconreader as long as I can remember (around 6-7 years). It has been my favorite app for browsing during that time. Recently however, the sensitivity of the ads has gone way up. I can’t touch that part of the screen while scrolling without the app opening up the ad in my browser and then glitching and opening up in a second browser. This is extremely disruptive to my experience. I am setting a calendar reminder for the first day of March. If the issue isn’t fixed by then I’m permanently deleting baconreader and finding another app.
I've been using this app forever - but I'm about to give up on it for something that ruins the experience numerous times . if you swipe left or right the screen changes to somewhere else and you lose wherever you were and whatever you were writing if you were writing. being left handed and trying to scroll ask reddit. this becomes a frustrating nightmare. all I want is the option to completely disable this swipe action, I don't want it at all anyway. after years of this I'm about ready to switch apps even though literally everything else about this app is as simple as I could ever hope for.
