The best thing that I liked about this Windows 8 Reddit viewer app is how fast it shows the photo posts. I have tried other Reddit viewer apps, but they are quite slow. So, the speed of the app is an advantage of this Windows 8 app. Besides that the app has a good enough user interface. All the photo posts are shown in big tiles format, along with their tags, and, upvotes, downvotes, and comments buttons. A good thing about this Windows 8 Reddit viewer app, is it refreshes the contents itself. Hence giving you the most popular and latest photo posts.

Some of the filters includes: What’s Hot, What’s New, Top Scoring: this month/ today/ this hour etc., Most controversial: today/ this hour / this week/ all time etc. Simply select the desired filter, and the app shows you the photo contents accordingly.

You’ll also see a Delete SubReddit button besides Add SubReddit button, using which you can delete sub-reddits.
Simply click on a photo post to view that post. I liked the fact that the app opens the photos in full screen. Here, you can view the comments on that photo post, upvote or downvote, and if the image is from a photo album, then you can view the next and previous photos of the album as well. Besides these, you can share the photos you liked using Windows 8 Share charm or view the photo hosting website (such as: imgur ) in which the photo was uploaded.

Charming Reddit, is a good to have Windows 8 Reddit viewer app. All though, at some points it didn’t show images, for instance when you open the photo hosting website in the app. Also, it does lack Windows 8 Search Charm. And it took multiple trials before I finally was able to login. Other wise the app works fine. I liked the sub-reddit ribbon and filtering feature, they help to quickly find the desired photo post. Also the app is quite fast. A good Windows 8 app to try.
