Baconit, one of the best Reddit client for Windows Phone is getting a new update soon. The developer of the app is working on a new version of Baconit from the ground up for the Windows 10 Universal App Platform. Here’s what the dev says about Baconit’s upcoming version:

The new app has the familiar UI of Baconit but with new controls and faster core experiences such as subreddit navigation. I am trying to strike a delicate balance between too new and too old, and so far I think I have a solid start. Baconit for Windows 10 will be available for Phone, Tablet, and Desktop, from the start and we will add support for Xbox and HoloLens when available in the SDK.

Now, one of the best thing about the upcoming version of Baconit is that it’ll be open source. The developer stated that the app will be fully Open Source under the GPL license. As the developer just started working on the app a few weeks ago, there isn’t any ETA for the release date of the app. Until then, discuss if you’re excited about Baconit for Windows 10 in the comment section below.
