<strong>Client app for Reddit, Biscuit, offers simplified viewing, iOS 7 styling</strong><br />
<br />
Biscuit, an iOS client app for Reddit, has been <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/299265==http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=JWU6hEpoB3Q&subid=&offerid=308294.1&type= 10&tmpid=5573&RD_PARM1=https%3A%2F%2Fitunes.apple. com%2Fus%2Fapp%2Fbiscuit%2Fid697779797" rel='nofollow'>released</a>, 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.<br />
<br />

<br />
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.
