Reddit clients on Windows are a cliche at this point. Windows Phone 8 had some of the best Reddit clients with Baconit and Readit. Building off that tradition, Legere for Reddit is a new app that brings a refined redditing experience to Windows 10.

Legere is a very pleasant app to use. It’s modern, it’s fast, and it is built on fluent design principles. Unlike the older Redditing apps, it is also actively maintained, so you should expect a drip-feed of maintenance updates and feature additions for the near future.

Where the app shines is on a tablet or a hybrid, navigating around with touch and gestures is fluid and a delight. You’ll probably feel more inclined to waste a few hours on this, but it’ll feel good.
Here’s the app description:

Legere is a modern, powerful and full-featured Reddit client, built from the ground up as a UWP app and available exclusively on Windows 10.

In addition to all the advanced capabilities expected from a serious Reddit client, like support for multiple accounts, background notifications and the ability to view different media types directly from the app (eg. YouTube videos and Imgur albums), Legere also includes numerous features to make sure that the official website won’t be missed when using the app. This UWP client has full support for the new sidebar for subreddits, it supports multireddits (which can also be subscribed to), correctly renders all the markdown from the official Reddit.com specs, and more.

It also provides some unique features, like a complete markdown editor with live preview, an album creation tool and an offline mode, and it leverages the power of the Windows 10 platform to provide some exclusive options, like the ability to open videos in a compact overlay window, live tiles, Windows Timeline and Jump List support.

Legere for Reddit is available in the Microsoft Store here.
