Readit for Windows 10 just picked up an update on PC and Mobile devices, bumping it up to version 18.104.22.168. Now, while this update sounds like a massive one, it isn’t. The real massive update is what comes after if the developers plans for Readit come to fruition.
Here’s the current changelog:
- The subreddit viewing page will now remember, and will reload on navigation, your post list scroll position and the post that you were viewing (but not your place in the comments as they are lazy loaded for performance)
- You can now search/filter comments that are loaded for a post. It filters/searches on usernames and content of the comments.
- Accessed in the mobile UI via the expanded menu of the appbar
- Accessed in the desktop UI via the comments header action bar
- It does not highlight the results as that is not really possible in UWP apps.
For future editions of the app, the developer plans to implement features like user tagging,post tagging, cloud sync for accounts and read posts, blocked/filtered users, user filtering and in-app changelogs.
Aside from putting the app beyond most Android and iOS clients (even the official reddit app), this would place Readit on par with RES. This means that it would no longer be necessary to use RES on PCs running Windows 10 if you have Reddit, as the native UWP app would provide an overall better experience.
