Verdict:

BaconReader is a light, attractive application that organizes content exceptionally well. It is the app's interface that makes it stand out from the crowd. BaconReader offers a much enhanced experience than browsing the reddit.com website directly. Unfortunately, the ad bar detracts from the clean interface, and is naturally more intrusive on Android devices with smaller screens.

9/10
