Client app for Reddit, Biscuit, offers simplified viewing, iOS 7 styling

Biscuit, an iOS client app for Reddit, has been released, offering a focused, cleaner viewing experience than Reddit's original web format. Using an "infinite canvas" design, Biscuit arranges thread comments in two dimensions -- horizontally, for argument points, and vertically to read immediate replies. Interaction is simplified through color-coding of "friend" users to follow in discussions, and single-gesture voting and replying is enabled.



Created as a native iOS 7 app, Biscuit's typography, white space layout, pacing, colors and gestures can be likened to iOS 7 overall aesthetics. The app's use of a golden brown color theme is intended to emphasize a visually comfortable reading environment. Since its original release, several improvements and new features have been added to Biscuit, such as a night mode, new gestures, and more. Available for $4, Biscuit can be downloaded from iTunes.

    Biscuit seems a lot like bestselling app Alien Blue

    actually, no. the only likeness is that it is also a reddit client. everything else is quite different, up to the completely original comment layout.
