Reddit OS X client with better user experience

A search for "Reddit" gives 484 hits. But for the Reddit clients "Envelope Reader" and "Reditr" there are no topics

What client for OS X do you recommend me? Envelope and Reditr have no advantage over the browser version. Search something better

Not too many options for the Mac, unfortunately. I keep checking here: http://alienblue.org/mac/ though.

I didn't know the Alien Blue dev was working on an OSX client! Awesome news, hope it's not too far away from release.

ETA - just saw that comments are from a year ago. I hope it wasn't abandoned...

I guess it's Vaporware

I found other Reddit client called Reddit HD. A Youtube-Review of user iDoiStuff shows how the software constantly crashes
Additionally the developer use the trademark Reddit unauthorized.

Reviews in App Store:

It's ok.

by Simona Tonangi

I use Alien Blue on my iPad and iPhone. It's the best Reddit app. I wanted to get an app for my Mac. This isn't a bad app, but it's really slow. When you comment it basically looks like an iframe from the Reddit website. I love Reddit, but I hate the format of the website. Alien Blue makes is pretty. I thought this app was going to the same. It doesn't. What a let down.
Does nothing but freeze and crash

by ybomb2012

The app freezes and crashed on every other click. It looks nice and pretty but since it doesn't work it is useless. It is also extremely slow. Save your money and wait for Alien Blue.

Running the most updated version on lion.

Have you tried using a browser with the Reddit Enhancement Suite extension? I use RES with Safari and it works well. Once you learn some of the KB shortcuts, you can zip through Reddit posts.

Even Open Source (RES is licensed under GPLv3). Do you upload some screenshots of it? Thanks

There really is not much to see in a screenshot. Most of what it adds is management/filtering plus KB shortcuts. Give it a try and poke around in the RES options and you will see.

The dev is working on a Mac client, although development seems to be really slow.

I just checked the Twitter and nothing like that. The website has not changed in months.
