reddit is fun - first release, version 0.5.0

reddit is fun

My first app is now on the Android marketplace! "reddit is fun" is an app for browsing with IMO a less annoying interface than dealing with the Android browser.

For this version, 0.5.0, you can look at the hot stories on different subreddits, login and vote, and leave comment replies.

In future versions I still have a lot of things to add:
  • Posting new threads
  • Better UI (some dialogs are wonky)
  • Looking at user info
  • The "red envelope" for replies
  • Sorting the subreddit and comments by things other than "hot"
  • "load more comments"
  • View more pages within a subreddit
  • Handling embedded links in comments
  • A few other features that might go into a paid version :)
So I guess this initial release took me about two and a half weeks. It felt like much longer though.... I've been working on it in my spare time after my day job.


  1. Whoops. version 0.5.1 is now out, fixing a bug with self-posts reported by bondagegirl on reddit:
