Reddit fancies itself as the front page of the Internet. For better or for worse, that’s pretty much what it is. It’s a large site with tons of topics and then tons of threads in each topic. With the right app, you can surf through your favorite subreddits pretty easily. There are tons of amazing options in this space, but here are the best Reddit apps for Android. Most of these also support Reddit Gold, a $3.99 per month subscription that removes ads and adds other features.
BaconReader is one of the more popular Reddit apps out there. It features a Material Design interface, background themes, and color-coded comment threads to help make it easier to read and look good. It supports some power user features such as moderator tools, a pretty decent search, advanced filtering, and multi-account support. There is a free version and you can pick up the pro version for $1.99 as a separate app or as an in-app purchase. It’s the same developer as 1Weather and TweetCaster. Both of those are solid apps as well.

There is also the all-important spoiler support. It’s one of the more feature rich Reddit apps and totally worth a shot.

This operates as an excellent portal for new and casual fans of Reddit. The app is, of course, completely free.

It also has theming, support for pretty much any file type, moderator tools, widget support, and the standard set of features you’d find in most Reddit apps. It’s not the flashiest Reddit app. It gets the job done, though.
Reddit Offline is one of the few completely free Reddit apps. Its sole purpose for existing is to help you read Reddit offline. The general premise is that you download large sections of the site. You can then access them offline during things like airplane flights, subway rides, or in areas where your don’t have good web. You can schedule the app to download content at specific times and it’ll even download images and comments. The UI isn’t half bad and it seems to work pretty well.

Along with that, it has support for Imgur albums, gifv files (along with most other common file types), multi-account support, and even a night mode theme that’s easier on the eyes. There is tablet support as well if you need that. It’s a fairly basic app. That can be good depending on what you need.

The app uses Material Design as well as a card-based interface to help make readability a little bit easier. It also has a ton of features, including moderator features, inline media previews, multi-account support, subreddit filters, spoiler alert support, and customization features.

Going for the pro version will also get ad-block in the built-in browser. There is even an option to download content for offline viewing later. It’s also an open source app with no advertisements.
Sync for Reddit is another one of the more feature rich Reddit apps. This one claims to be optimized specifically for the /r/soccer subreddit (if that matters to you) and features a fully Material Design interface. It has multi-window support, multi-account support, a night theme (with a separate AMOLED theme), and support for Android Nougat. This one has had a few more bugs reported than normal, but it’s definitely still worth a chance. It works quite well most of the time.
