Within the next week or so users of the popular Reddit client Baconit should be getting an update that will bring some added functionality for Windows Phone 8 users.

We’ve been using Baconit version 2.5 or the last few days and really enjoy the performance (we were sold on the design with version 1.0) and the new features. Baconit (and its PC browser client BaconSync) is probably your best choice if you’re a casual or hardcore Reddit user who also uses Windows Phone.

Head past the break for the complete change log or just watch our video to get the highlights of those new features in action!

Baconit version 2.5 (Windows Phone 8 only changes)

  • Lock screen wallpaper from any subreddit
  • Lock screen notifications
  • New live tiles for Windows Phone 8
  • Tap + Send support
  • New social network sharing
  • New animations
  • Rapid resume
  • High resolution images
  • Fixes to flip view to use less memory and have better performance :)
  • Completely rewritten back end which improves performance of entire app

Overall, Baconit version 2.5 is quite killer and makes the app that much better. We’ll keep you posted when the update goes live and in the meantime you can pick up Baconit here in the Windows Phone Store 100% free (no ads) and if you love the dev’s work (Quinn Damerell) you can get the donation version here for $1.99.
