Do you guys like the mobile app?  I tend to just use a browser set to "desktop" rendering.

It does seem to load gifs and videos more quickly IMHO.

I can't imagine trying to plow through reddit posts & comments on a phone screen.

Then again, I can't imagine plowing through reddit without filtering and modifying the UI with tampermonkey and ublock.

>gifs and videos

In Chrome desktop add the HoverZoom extension.

I use the mobile version which I think is a bit better than desktop, but ain't saying much.

I was quite alarmed to read the other day, a reddit post from the "Design Team". I really would like to know what those people do all day.

I use the mobile app but mainly for news. I rarely drill down to read comments.

It's a fire hose. Without filters, you'll be overdosed and in shell-shocked within a few days.
