I don't know about you, but I'm addicted to Reddit. I permanently keep Reddit's website opened in a separate tab in my browser. And when I'm on the move, I use the Diode Reddit Browser app. Diode is based on the last open source version of the Reddit is Fun app. When the latter went close source, developers created the Diode fork to keep the open source app alive.

Diode is not the most feature-rich Reddit client in the Google Play store, but all essential functionality is implemented. You can search and browse sub-reddits, upvote posts, view and add comments, and submit posts. You can configure Diode to check your Reddit mail, too. This feature is disabled by default, so you have to activate it in the Settings section. Here, you can also configure other settings, such as theme and font size as well as enable an external browser. That's pretty much all there is to it.
