Dank is fresh experience for Reddit on Android. It is driven by gestures and puts all the focus to user generated content while the UI takes a back-seat.
Submissions and comments can be swiped towards the left to upvote and downvote. Swiping them towards the right will let you reply or reveal options.
Drag to dismiss screens
Every screen in Dank expands from where you tap to reveal the content behind. Dragging them vertically let’s you collapse them to go back. The inspiration behind this gesture was Google Inbox.
Flick to dismiss media Images and videos can be dismissed by flicking them out of the box.

Let’s face it — typing on a 5-inch display sucks. Dank understands this and promotes inline replies instead so that you can respond faster without losing context.
What you see is what you get — a live preview for markdown so that you don’t have to constantly switch between the editor and its preview.
If typing didn’t already suck enough on phones, undoing mistakes is even worse. But Dank is very forgiving. You can make mistakes and Dank will let you undo (and redo) your typed words.
Markdown formatting look nicer in Dank — especially tables, code blocks and superscripts.
GIFs speak a million words and are perfect for Reddit. It’s so surprising other apps haven’t added support for GIFs yet.
Dank displays message threads as… threads. I don’t get it why other Reddit apps display each message in a new screen. They remind me of messaging in the Nokia era.
Customizable app shortcuts
On Android Nougat and above, you can jump to your favorite subreddits directly by long-pressing Dank’s launcher icon. Considering that we usually have fixed favorites, Dank does let’s you set them yourself instead of applying machine learning and ordering them by your visit frequency.
