Best reddit apps for iPhone: Alien Blue

Alien Blue has long been a favorite client among hardcore reddit users due to the overwhelming feature set it offers. The beautiful interface and design is an added bonus. Free users can view images inline, browse their subreddits, edit your own comments, toggle between a day and night mode, and much more. If you choose to upgrade to Pro via an in-app purchase of $1.99, you also get multiple account support, the ability to create and submit posts, gorgeous canvas and gallery views of images, and more.

For a reddit client that packs a feature set that just can't be matched, you want Alien Blue.

Reddme

Best reddit apps for iPhone: Reddme

Reddme is a newer reddit client for iPhone that offers a ton of features for an extremely decent price. With support for text customization and a gorgeous night theme, there's a lot to like about Reddme. The interface features a card style layout that makes it easy to browse subreddits. You can sign in to your reddit account in order to subscribe and unsubscribe to subreddits, create and edit your own posts, search keywords, and much more. Reddme also supports iCloud syncing across devices, which makes us think an iPad version may be planned for the future.

For a reddit app that lets you do more for less that also comes with a great card style interface, be sure to give Reddme a try.

BaconReader

Best reddit apps for iPhone: BaconReader

BaconReader was designed from the ground up with iOS 7 guidelines in mind. With full gesture support, navigating BaconReader is a breeze. When it comes to feature set, BaconReader supports multiple reddit accounts and lets you easily swipe between them, the ability to favorite subreddits without having to add them to your front page, and much more. And for those who enjoy a good laugh, BaconReader is one of the only reddit apps that lets you doodle on images before posting them.

If you want a reddit experience that's heavily iOS 7, or just want to be able to mark up images before posting, get BaconReader.

Feedworthy

Best reddit apps for iPhone: Feedworthy

Feedworthy takes a different approach to reddit and focuses heavily upon image presentation. With support for inline images and gifs, albums from imgur, a gorgeous night mode, and more, Feedworthy is hands down one of the best designed reddit apps I've seen, and it's also fast. What I love the most about Feedworthy is that it makes doing the things you want to do most often while browsing reddit extremely simple, such as using tap and hold to share or expanding and collapsing comments only when you need them. Everything about Feedworthy is well thought out and executed.

If you browse images on reddit more than anything, you'll love the experience Feedworthy can offer you.

Redd

Best reddit apps for iPhone: Redd

Redd is a less advanced reddit app than some of the others but what it lacks in feature set, it makes up for in usability. You can post stories to subreddits, upvote and downvote comments and stories, share posts to social networks and read it later services, and more. Redd also features a nice dark theme along with a decent photo viewer.

If you're more of a browser than a poster and just want an easy to use reddit solution, give Redd a try.

  • Alien Blue is among the increasing list of iPad apps that I wish worked on my Macs as well. I avoid visiting Reddit directly anymore and wait for when I can do it from my iPad with Alien Blue. (Or my iPhone in a pinch.)
  • With all the discussion and controversy over listing apps with in-app purchases as "free". I think it's time for blogs like iMore to start listing apps as "free with in-app purchases" and explain what the in-app purchases are.
  • +1 I agree.
