    A normal list view option would be nice. I don't want to load every image. A thumbnail is usually fine. Sometimes you really don't want to see the images right away anyway. Some subs use the title as the setup and the image as the punchline. Right now, it seems like way too much emphasis is on the image. This really goes against the expected experience.

    Barring the ability to see a list, swipe gestures (to hide, vote, report, etc.) are absolutely necessary. I'm finding myself swiping all over this thing with no results. 90% of Reddit, even on the subs I subscribe to is garbage. I want need to be able to hide stuff easily.

    Oh, and an iPad version when you can get to it would be great.

      Thanks for the great feedback Chris! You bring valid points and we'll probably ship an ipad version soon.

        I can't wait for an iPad version. As I said in another comment, Alien Blue has totally lost me with its interface lately. Their iPad version had an odd interface to begin with, and now it's odd in like four different ways, including really stinking of iOS 6 these days.

        For what it's worth, I frequent r/thesimpsons. Half the fun is users setting up the image with a line from the scene. Seeing the image first feels very different!
