Focuser is a treemap-style Reddit browser [Android]

Are you looking a unique way to browse Reddit? If you aren’t, skip to the next one you just might find Focuser interesting anyway. Focuser is an app that focuses not on large lists of content, but instead on splitting content into a treemap style.

Focuser is simple to use. You’re presented with a collection of subreddits, and if you want to preview images from the subreddit, you can just tap and hold for five seconds. Zooming in to just one particular subreddit is as easy as tapping the subreddit’s title.

There’s really not much to Focuser. It lets you view top stories from around the web, but to actually read the comments and vote, you’ll need to use your browser or install another Reddit app. It’s overall a nice proof of concept, but not too terribly useful for anything. If you’re interested in examining new user interface ideas, however, it’s definitely worth a look.

    Hello, thank you for reviewing my app! You are completely right it’s just “proof of concept” in the current state. I definitely will add more features such as possibility to select subreddits and view comments in the next versions.
