For some people, reddit is all about the frenzied information overload experience. In a way, it's like those 10 hour long YouTube videos: let's see how long you can endure.
We see reddit differently. We want to focus, dive deep, and read with dedication. So we built a reddit client for iPad to rediscover the reddit we used to love. A reddit beyond information overflow, far away from the wall of text you get in the browser.
We paid close attention to layout, typography and visual appearance. We poured in everything we learned about touch interaction since the iPad came out. Biscuit is pure iPad, and it feels right at home on iOS 7.
But foremost, Biscuit is about the joy of following discussions. Instead of the web reddit wall of text experience – stimulative as it might be for some – we use an infinite canvas to arrange the comments in two dimensions; horizontally to drill down into an argument, vertically to read all the immediate replies.
Reading becomes choosing what you want to see. Because interaction is swift and smooth, this is a rather enjoyable experience. Biscuit preloads all comments you could choose to see next. Also, it indicates buried OP replies.
We built in single-gesture voting and replying, because we believe that this kind of interaction is the backbone of reddit.
Like so often, it is hard to describe. Try it and you will discover a whole new way to enjoy reddit.
