Readit gets a huge update in version for Windows 10, adds RES options


The Baconit vs Readit debate has just been settled for Windows 10 devices. In its most recent update, Readit has just become the most powerful Readit client on Windows 10 – even when features of RES are taken into account.

The new update adds a plethora of features, including cloud sync, user tagging and subreddit tagging as well as bug fixes for the crashing bug that presented itself in the recent past. For aficionados of the Reddit Extensibility Suite, you can now import your settings into Readit.

Here’s the changelog below:

    • Subreddit/post tagging
      • Tag subreddits like in RES
      • Adds a tag to a post if it doesn’t contain the specified text (only on front page/all and multireddits)
      • The tag text is inserted at the beginning of the title just like RES
    • User tagging
      • Tag users/ignore users like in RES
      • Use the ellipsis menu for posts on desktop or right click a post in the post list
      • Use the app bar for mobile or press + hold on a post in the post list
      • Use the more menu for comments to tag users from a comment
      • Add a tag via the advanced settings page
      • Adds a tag to the user right next to the username of posts/comments so that you can tag/ignore trolls, friends, known users, etc.
      • Keeps track of total vote count – how many up/downvotes you have applied to that user since tagging them
      • Keeps count for any user you have voted on ever
    • How the tagging “ignore” feature works
      • Self text for comments, messages and posts are replaced with a message stating that the user is ignored
      • If you really want to see the self text of it, the ignored message contains a link that you can click to load the original content
    • Advanced Settings page added to the settings menu
      • Manage user tags and subreddit tags
      • RES Settings Import
      • Import settings directly from a backup of your RES settings – imports user/subreddit tags and associated data such as vote tracking numbers for users
    • Cloud Sync has been enabled
      • Syncs data using the roaming storage of your MS account (< 100 kb of data)
      • Will sync between all devices (desktop/tablet/mobile) as long as you are logged into the same MS account
      • Only syncs when an account is added/removed or on app launch
      • To force a sync, lock your device that is syncing the data to the cloud and wait 3-5 minutes. MS controls this. After the wait period, check your other device and it should have the data.
      • A sync to the cloud occurs if the local file timestamp is newer than the server version
      • A sync from the cloud only occurs if the server file timestamp is newer than the local version
      • Will sync the following:
      • /r/all filter
      • Read posts (gold not required)
      • User accounts (no passwords stored ever, not even in local storage)
        • Only syncs users down to device if there aren’t any logged in
      • Subreddit tags
      • User tags
      • New comment count since last visit of posts
      • Settings are not synced due to device differences
    • Fixed all filter in a certain languages
    • Fixed titlebar disappearing on navigation for the desktop UI
