I love Reddit. It's one of the websites I'm on the most, but its dated interface can hurt your eyes. The blocky layout, the dated design, and the overall feel of Reddit almost seem purposefully ugly in 2018. ReddPlanet is a third-party Reddit client that has all the community goodness without any of the eyesore of a design.
It also adds features that make it easier to stay on top of your posts and comments.
The app is available for free on Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Xbox One, and HoloLens.
Reddit already has excellent content if you know where to look, but the design of Reddit leaves a lot to be desired. ReddPlanet fills your screen well with your Reddit feed on the left with the associated webpage or content showing up on the right. You can elect to turn on large previews to help you know which posts are worth your time and view content directly within the app.
Photos load well and you can watch videos directly within the app if you'd like. Overall, it makes the browsing experience faster while also showing you more previews and content to help you not miss anything. ReddPlanet supports favoriting posts to help you recall anything you've liked in the past.
There are also little touches that make the app feel polished such as smooth animations. You can customize the layout to fit your needs including changing accent colors and deciding if the navigation bar is blurry or not.
In addition to looking great, ReddPlanet also has a number of features that enhance the Reddit experience. If you use myTube!, you can opt to have YouTube videos open through the third-party YouTube client.
You can also receive notifications through Windows 10 to help you stay up to date with your posts and comments. A common phrase on Reddit is that the real detail is always in the comments. I read comments more than I read original posts usually. Using ReddPlanet makes it easy to know when someone has replied to a post or comment so you can pop back into the thread.
Overall thoughts on ReddPlanet for Windows 10
The attractive and flexible look of ReddPlanet is espeicially nice because Reddit has an ugly interface that seems needlessly dated. ReddPlanet drags that into the 21st century.
The only small knock is that it can occasionally have hiccups with performance and that it doesn't support multiple Reddit accounts.
- Beautiful layout
- Notification support
- Occasional performance hiccups
- Lacks multiple user support
