[App] Alerts for Reddit
Alerts for Reddit allows you to receive phone notifications for hot new posts on your favorite subreddits, by your favorite users, or on threads you want to track.
Whether you’re tracking /r/worldnews or /r/birdswitharms, your phone will notify you when a new post has quickly risen to the top of a subreddit. For user tracking, you can get notifications for new posts and/or comments by any public user on Reddit. And for threads, you can get alerts whenever someone posts something new in response to a specific comment or post!
Add/remove subreddits, users, or threads at any time to start/stop seeing notifications
Limit notifications by keywords, so you only see the alerts you care about
No need to link your reddit account – you can subscribe for notifications to any public subreddit, user, or thread.
Add up to 3 notification subscriptions of your choosing for free; upgrade to Premium to receive notifications for more than 3.
Set the notification frequency for subreddits: “Low” if you only want breaking news, “High” if you want notifications for all hot posts, or “All” to get notified for all new posts.
Set the notification frequency for each user: “Posts only” or “Posts and Comments”
Got a Reddit app on your phone? Notifications will launch you straight to the app. No app? Notifications will bring you to Reddit via the browser.
Never miss the posts you care about!
Alerts for Reddit user reviews :
I’d like to like this app more than I do – there’s times when either notifications on subreddits or users don’t work at all, or that they do work but are delayed. It’s a great idea, and I’ll modify this rating if it turns out I’m using this wrong.
Very close. Its pretty good but also too delayed for my uses. often I am not getting notifications until 3-10 minutes after the post. I am looking ti get notified within 1 minute of the post. Sometimes I get double notifications too.
The UI is a bit wonky, but once you figure it out, the app works. I use it to monitor buy/sell pages on reddit and have snagged some deals within 0-2 minutes of the post.
Super lightweight, simple yet effective. I use this for r/watchexchange to be notified when people post watches for sale. Most of the good ones are sold within minutes so this app allows me to get first in line. I love the ability to be able to specify key words as well. Only improvement I could want would be to allow the use of wildcards (or even regex) in the keywords. Great app, thanks!
This app is exactly what I needed. I use it to keep track of a couple subreddits to keep up with sales on pc parts. The only thing I wish this app would have is the ability to blacklist certain words. For example, keyword is cpu, but I want to avoid posts with the words cooler. This way I would be able to narrow alerts to just the cpu and not cpu coolers as well (something I am not looking for).
The app works just like it does on iOS. My only complaint would be that the icon that represents the app in the notifications is just a square and it doesn’t look good. If you could put the letter a in there so that it’s reminiscent of the actual app itself, it would look a lot better.
This is super useful to keep track of topics on reddit. I upgraded almost immediately to be able to track my interested subreddits. The only thing I wish is to be able to track both keywords and “high frequency” for a given subreddit. Right now, if I watch a subreddit with keywords, then I don’t get High Frequency posts alerts.
android notifications on but it doesn’t send me anything. with keywords or without. I added a sub and changed from frequent to all and still don’t get notifications.
Works well, wish you could add words to an ignore list to block posts with certain words even if they have the keywords in them
I wrote a previous review of this app, in which I knocked off a few stars because I thought I was receiving alerts hours later than I thought I should. After now realizing that I had the frequency options set incorrectly, I can now say that this app is perfect for my needs, and alerts me immediately. Thank you to the creator.
Works fantastic. I put in the subreddit and keyword and BAM! Notice shows up exactly when the post comes up with my keyword. Lifetime account paid. Cheers.
