Whenever OneLouder Apps – the dev team behind FirendCaster, TweetCaster and ChannelCaster - release a new app to the Android Market, you know that you’re going to get something exceptional. Now, if you happen to be an avid Reddit user, you’d be excited to know that the company has acquired BaconReader and released the final build to the Android Market. In case you don’t know, BaconReader is not new to Android. We reviewed it a few months back while it was in its closed alpha stage.  Numerous buggy alpha and beta iterations of the app have been released on a frequent basis but now, it seems that users can finally enjoy a stable, fully-functional version of the app. Details and screenshots to follow.

The interface of the app hasn’t changed much since its first alpha. The app’s functionality too, remains roughly the same. The good thing, however, is that all the bugs found in earlier versions seem to have been removed, and all non-functional features, fixed.

Other changes from the alpha build include the option to explore the app’s content without being logged in to Reddit, improvements in performance and indication for NSFW posts.

BaconReader works like any other Reddit client, but is a tad more user-friendly than some, and better-looking than almost all alternatives.

The app lets you view the Reddit frontpage along with major subreddits, post under a subreddit of your choice with attached links or photos, share, preview, reply, upvote/downvote and save posts on the fly, preview attached photos, customize which subreddits appear within the drop down menu on the app’s homescreen, add custom subreddits and search for existing ones manually, send personal messages to other users and view your own, manage your Reddit profile and customize notification settings.

Among the few things that hold the app apart from its alternatives are its color-coded comment threads, which make going through the feedback under each post extremely easy on the eyes, and its sleek homescreen widget.

BaconReader is probably the most polished Reddit client on the Android Market as of now. The app has two variants; a free, ad-supported version and a $1.99 ad-free paid version. You can upgrade to the paid version from within the app. To do so, navigate to Menu > Settings > Remove advertisements and tap Upgrade me.
