Feedworthy is the ideal way to view Reddit on your iPhone.
Since 2005, social networking service, Reddit has been a thoroughfare for entertainment and news on the Internet. Reddit is essentially an online bulletin board for registered users to submit their content with the purpose of spreading it throughout the Internet. The entries are organized into areas of interest called ‘subreddits,’ which any registered user can create. There are many ways to view Reddit and with more and more feed readers available on iOS devices, but I believe Feedworthy to be the best.
Feedworthy by Yap Studios LLC was released on July 14, 2014 and is currently on version 1.0. It is a free download from the App Store, but does have the option of an in-app purchase to remove all ads. This is actually one of the more expensive in-app purchases I’ve seen. At $4.99, the removal of ads seems a bit too costly in my opinion.
Feedworthy is a very clean, easy-to-read news feed for the iPhone. Some of its features include:
- Inline images and animated gifs
- Image albums from Imgur
- Collapsable comments
- Night mode
- Press-and-hold to share
So how does it work? When you open the app, you are shown the top Subreddits on Reddit as a scrolling set of images. When you tap on one, it shows you all the entries in that topic. If you want to share, you only have to tap and hold on the screen to reveal sharing options. You can even choose to save the image to your iPhone photos if you want.
Feedworthy is a wonderful way to carry Reddit with you and read your favorite stories on the go. The only downside to this app is the ads that appear within the entries. This isn’t something that Reddit users will be surprised about though since Reddit itself is ad-supported.
Based off of its elegant, clean design, I would recommend Feedworthy to any Reddit users. It seems like a much easier interface than going to the site on Safari. Feedworthy makes entries easier to skim through and share with others.
