Popular Reddit client Readit 2.0 gets a major overhaul for Windows Phone, now available

If you like to keep up on your Reddits when out in the world, you have a few client apps for Windows Phone to meet your needs. Our top choice for some time now has been Readit, and today version 2.0 has gone live in the Store after it started testing in January.

What's new in Readit 2.0? According to the app developer, there is no changelog because it is "so huge that I could not complete it... The whole app has basically changed since it was mostly rewritten".

Readit 2.0

  • Completely new user experience, plenty of new features and tons of bug fixes and optimizations (specifically battery and memory related)

The app is still written for Windows Phone 8 and 8.1, so most of the rewriting has to do with design and functionality.

Firing up 2.0, and we like what we see. The app is super smooth with excellent transitions between screens. You also get all the bells and whistles that you expect from a top notch Reddit client, like Live Tile, notifications for messages, plenty of configuration options and more (although our light theme is not working).

Readit fetches for a reasonable $1.99 with a free trial. The developer is one of the best around, even having a dedicated Reddit for the app to interact with customers. Due to the quality of the app, and frequency of updates, we still give this app a high recommendation.

Oh, and for now, ignore the 'beta' part, just a mistake and will be fixed soon in the Store listing.
