I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. seperate enablement of gifs from "use high resolution images"

    Currently on the Lumia 920, the only way to get a gif to run through its playback sequence is by enabling high resolution images. If the option is not enabled, the gif simply displays as a static image.

    if baconit is actually already downloading the entire gif into ram, it should just enable gif playback by default

    • A loading progress bar for posts.

      This helps when viewing posts that seem to have stopped loading, like GIF's for example. Sometimes i want to know how far along the posts has loaded instead of worrying about the Baconit freazing.

      • create a gesture or double tap to quickly hide posts

        If I end up with for example ten posts I want to hide it is time consuming to hold over it and go to hide or click it then select menu then select hide.

            • Subreddit Linking

              When someone links to a subreddit in the comments (ex. /r/adviceanimals) it isn't clickable. This could be fixed.

              • Add an option in the "..." to view the sidebar

                It's a really lengthy process to view the sidebar now. It would be awesome if we could see the sidebar from the "..."

                • Better support for gifs

                  Admittedly they are larger files and so obviously take more time to load, some of them take a really long time, even when connected to decent wifi.

                  • Some way to clear the cache.

                    When viewing subreddits with many large files/gifs, the cache fills extremely quickly, causing the app to crash. It'd be appreciated if it could auto-empty the cache, or at least give the manual option to take care of it.

                    • Separate image for pinned subs

                      Pinning subs to home screen should result in different tile so you can tell which sub is which.

                      • Change behaviour of the hardware "back" button when viewing web pages

                        If you view a web page in the baconit app, click a link, and then want to go back to the original page, the hardware back button takes you back to the list of posts. I'd at least like the option to make it act like the back button in a browser.

                        • Support for imgur albums without needing to use the browser

                          currently, imgur links to an album show up in the browser. A better mobile interface would be much better.

                          • add a feature that allows you to hide/filter viewed stories so that it's easier to find earlier posts more efficiently.

                            I am relatively new to Reddit, and so I often find myself exploring deep into subreddits. Inevitably, Baconit will close, either by me quitting, or by crashing (not frequently, but it does occasionally happen). When this does happen, I am forced to load pages upon pages of viewed posts just to get back to where I left off. I am constantly spamming the '...' and 'Load More Stories' buttons. I know I can use the ' recently viewed tab', but that doesn't allow you to go to the post list relative to where that last story would be--you end up…

                                    I think it would be really dandy to have an option for Baconit to automatically display high-resolution images when using a Wi-Fi connection, and switch to low-resolution images when using the cellular data connection. Is there a way to determine connection settings and implement an automatic toggle?

                                        I currently have to get on my laptop to check the moderator mail. It would make life much easier if I could get these messages on the app.

                                          In some active threads I would like to keep reading past the default 500 or so comments. I also don't want to repeat another comment that didn't make it
