If it comes to reading one site to know it all, its gotta-be reddit. Reddit is fun, and its the most informative social content aggregation site.
We’ve been a loyal user of Reddit for about 7 years, and the experience is worth touting: Its still the best news aggregation site out there.
But truth be told, the frontend UI is not all that appealing and all those links can confuse any new user. The topics (called sub reddits) can be overwhelming with so much data presented on its pages.
The solution, is of course, in using one of the Rich clients on your content consumption device: iPad, Android Tablets.
Lets take a look at one app on each iPad (iOS platform) and Android that are visually appealing and easy to use.
Reddit for Android
Reddmag brings the visual magazine aspect to the Reddit reading experience. All the best and recent posts in your favorite subreddits will be organized in a beautiful images-fill grid.
Reddmag free gives you access to limited number of subreddits.
2. Reddit Sync
Since Reddmag isn’t perfect, coz of the limited subreddits it support, we recommend taking a look at Reddit Sync as well.
