Perhaps not the most beautiful of the reddit apps for Android, but still the only one that has never left me wishing it had a feature I am accustomed to on the web site. Post creation, private messages, multireddits, reddit Gold, moderation tools, silky smooth scrolling, filters...it's all there and it just works. See More
Peter J. Mello's Experience
Reddit is Fun has the ability to be used in milti-window mode on high end Samsung phones. It can also be used in pop-up view (drag the corner of the screen towards the middle to shrink the app to about 1/2 size, or keep it as a bubble similar to FaceBook's chat heads feature). See More
Similar to Slide for reddit, but card layout just seems more cluttered. I tried to make a suggestion for more multireddit incorporation but the developer dismissed it as very niche. I'm a longtime slide and boost user and they both seamlessly incorporate multireddits. See More
Grace Huang's Experience
BaconReader works well on tablets and phones alike whether in landscape or portrait. The phone UI uses a single column view while tablet mode allows for a double column, which utilizes the screen space better allowing for info to be read easier. See More
Users can set colors to their favorite subreddits allowing for an easier cursory glance at the info contained in the app with over 50 color combinations. When combined with the three available themes this allows for over 150 theme combinations. See More
Most Reddit clients refresh your inbox upon opening the app, notifying you instantly about any messages that you have. Now for Reddit on the other hand may not alert you of any messages even if you're using the app. The delay is generally short, but sometimes can take up to a couple of hours with no noticeable pattern. As a workaround, it's possible to manually refresh, but this might be a deal-breaker for some. See More
Now for Reddit is one of the few Reddit clients that come with the ability to change how much content can be viewed on the screen. You'd also be hard pressed to find another Reddit client that can show you full-size images (via full-size cards) without you having even tapped on the image. Keep in mind that the configurable card sizes might also have an impact on battery consumption, ranging from tiny cards (most battery efficient) to full size cards (most battery/data hungry).

Using Android's profile GPU rendering tool it can be clearly shown how the Now for Reddit is generally more responsive than quite a few of the other popular reddit clients. For people obsessive about the 60 FPS mark, it would be hard to find a near 60 FPS experience as good as Now for Reddit. See More
When clicking on links in the Official Reddit app (such as a Youtube link), the Youtube app will not open, but instead the Chrome browser does. This happens with a wide array of links found in the Official Reddit app as they all lead to an outside browser instead of opening within the app or opening in the appropriate app. See More
