The best Reddit app for Windows 8.1 gets better with latest update

ReddHub is one of our favorite Reddit apps for Windows 8.1 It just kicks ass when we use it on something like our Surface 2. But we also like using it on any regular Windows 8.1 machine, especially with touch. A few months ago the app went to version 2.0 and picked up some major new features along with a redesign. Today the app received another sweet update that adds a ton of cool stuff like multireddit support and an improved WYSWIG editor.

Here's the full changelog for ReddHubV2 1.1:

  • Added support for multireddits
  • Added ability to edit a comment
  • Added ability to unsave a link
  • added improved wyswig editor UI
  • Added support for higher-resolution tiles and icons
  • Added author flair text and fixed expand/contract bug when auto collapse setting is set
  • Added ability to filter search to a subreddit
  • Portrait mode grid splitter now shows preview for improved performance
  • Added copy comment url
  • Added refresh button when viewing messages list
  • Added spoiler support
  • Added sort by caching
  • Added 'failed to load comments' message if failed to load comments

  • I went back to v1, has a more functional interface. Will have to give v2 another look.
  • Update: Near as I can tell, it is worse. It crashed on me twice in a couple minutes and doesn't load any subreddits. It could be a Win10 issue, so I will test again later on my Surface.
  • I use V2 its awesome but has some quirks to it. I hope this update adresses most of them.
  • Best is rather subjective. I'd rather use the ultraminimalist Baconit over this any day. But, to each their own. :) EDIT: IGNORE ME. SUPER LONG DAY. Thought it was talking about another App on Windows Phone. I will take my public shaming.
  • Public shame
  • Reddit, like 4chan, is the sewer of the internet. I pity anyone that uses either.
  • Of course it is, that's exactly the point ahahahahahah
  • It depends on what you are looking at. There are many great subreddits where you can learn a lot and discuss all kinds of topics seriously with other people that are interested in them. Sure there are also bad places on that site.
  • Just like anywhere. The more people, the shittier the place
  • TIL /r/gentlemanboners exists
  • Reddit, what is it?
  • just another form of  twitter, blog search !!
  • forum for forums
  • I'll check it out when I get home.  Sounds good.  I'm sure itt is better than Slideware. (flipboard crap)
  • Where's the link?
  • I really want to like ReddHub V2, but it's riddled with issues. Most of my complaints are superficial design issues, like two submit buttons on the search bar, inconsistent spacing between UI elements, out of place colors, etc. But then there are the bigger bugs like the atrocious performance on the Surface 2. I really, really want to like it. In screenshots, it looks so good. In use, it just feels half baked. Hell, quarter baked.
  • do you guys think it's any better than Baconit?
  • This is for Windows not Windows Phone
  • ops didn't pay attention to that 
  • Not universal are you kidding me
  • Redd Hub is horrible in portrait. Uninstalling.
  • Crashed too many times. Reddit2Go! and Redditsaurus far more functional and stable.
  • I prefer redditsaurus.  So much functionality. 
  • @wpcentral,"best" is rather subjective. If I had a quid for everytime you said an app is "the best', I'd be a millionaire! Pick an app and nail your flag to it's mast.
  • What about windows phone 8.1? Does anyone know what the best reddit is for this?
  • I use Readit. For me best Reddit app. On both WP and Windows.
