  • I still prefer readit
  • Has a absolutely nothing to do with this topic
  • They're both Reddit apps for Windows. Posted from my Moto X Pure Edition via the Windows Central App for Android
  • I like read it too but have really wanted to try this one. I find readits layout to be A Little clumsy
  • Nice update. I hope the bugfixes include that one that causes intermittent periods of non-responsiveness once the apps been open for a while.
  • I like Baconit, however this update is very crashy on the 950XL.
  • I never understood why we already couldn't submit new posts. Smh
  • App was re-built, so features are now being added in. That was noted on day #1 ;)
  • That fish from SpongeBob.. Haha xD
  • Is there a DisplayRequest().Active when using a media element yet? I definitely listed that as a bug on the official sub......
  • I have been bouncing between Baconit and Readit since Baconit was re-released. I prefer Baconit for it's relative speed, but Readit has better usability at this point. Glad to see a big update for Baconit to start addressing that.
