Huge update right? This version of Readit supports the two most common spoiler formats used on Reddit and the book spoiler version used in the Game of Thrones subreddit. You also get other great features like Gold account sync, mod tools and more.

I used to worship a false god too, until I saw the light.

Join us, brother! Bask in the glory of Readit!

There sure are a lot of massive (Spotify), big (Beats Music), massive (Readit) things going on around here.

Yes its very interesting to see some strong improvements to big apps. These companies must be seeing more traffic from WP devices

Damn. Update after update today
All we need is Facebook and instagram updated and this day will be complete

Windows Phone users should be proud of this app. It does many things NO OTHER reddit app in existence can do, anywhere.

Seems to be going a bit slower. (Or, at least the super smooth-ness between tapping something and it appearing has gone away.)

But I'm on 8.1, so who knows if that's the reason.

Switching back to readit after this update. It looks amazing and works great now. I have had zero problems all day since the update. I couldn't even say that yesterday.

[Off-topic] Where do you get these awesome poly wallpapers Sam?? Polyscreen can't do this. Could share the link?.....pleeease? :)

Thanks man. I tried that already. But i can never get the output to look as good and "artistic" as Sam's ones (assuming he's using this at all).

Sorry, but this update is borked. No longer possible to log in with a Reddit account (the link to accept the terms of use is broken). Maybe the app works if you were already logged in, but the login process for those not already logged in is broken.
