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

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

    I didn't know the Alien Blue dev was working on an OSX client! :D 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 :p

    ----------

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

    Reviews in App Store:

    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

    I don't like it. Tried.

    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.

    Anybody tried "Lurk for Reddit - Vojto Rinik"? Any review?

    Customers are angry that Vojto Rinik censores NSFW posts. No other reviews.

    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.
