If you just so happen to be a Redditor, or user of social media in general, then you may have heard of an app known as BaconReader. It is a Reddit client that has been in the works for almost a year now. It has gone through multiple stages of alphas and betas, and today it finally makes its official debut in the Android Market.
Nearly one year ago, when BaconReader was first introduced, the Reddit client options on Android were incredibly slim. Since that time more developers have opened shop and released apps into the Market, but none of them are quite as nice as BaconReader has turned out to be. The app is plenty functional, with features like full profile support, color coded comments, full featured inbox, one-tap access to your favorite subreddits, Rageface and look of disapproval support. But that’s not where BaconReader excels. BaconReader blows the competition out of the water when it comes to design.
BaconReader is not only the best looking Reddit client available on the Market, it’s one of the best looking apps period. A lot of time was put into the design and user interface of BaconReader, and it really shows.
Also announced along with the release of BaconReader is a glimpse into the app’s future. BaconReader has been acquired by OneLouder Apps, the developer behind FriendCaster and TweetCaster. Chris Arvin, the original developer of BaconReader, has said that there will now be an entire team of devs working on bug fixes, but he will continue to stay with the project and still lead design.
You can try BaconReader for free by using the Android Market download widget below. If you’d like to get rid of the ads in the app, you can do so for $1.99 as an in-app purchase. If you happen to give it a shot, let us know how you like it.
