Good start, clean, needs work - I like the clean UI. It needs: 1) Frontpage (this is a must!) 2) Thumbnails in the list view 3) Ability to change font / size 4) Readability or some kind of different page rendering I would prefer this over the site and recommend to friends on if /when it has at least the first 3
Stop deciding what I can see - "Disclaimer: Lurk doesn't display any NSFW content. Come on guys, let's show some class." This renders this app utterly worthless. Many subs use the "NSFW" tag to filter content either to be on the safe side or for other reasons (/r/comicbooks uses it for spoilers). Remove this - we're all grownups here.

Doesn’t work - It won’t log in to my Reddit account. The author has ignored my support requests. This app should be delisted.
Unnecessary Censorship Breaks Alternate Uses of NSWF Tags - As noted in the other review, this app claims the following: "Disclaimer: Lurk doesn't display any NSFW content. Come on guys, let's show some class." Since NSFW tags are used on every single spoiler-sensitive subreddit I'm subscribed to, this filters out a lot of SFW but spoilerific content, which is the majority of the content for some of the subreddits I follow. So I got in touch with the developer, who said it'd be removed in the next version. Besides this, the app looks great and works well. Looking forward to using it once it's updated!
