There are people who can’t get through a day without taking a peek at Reddit. I realized I was one of them a while ago. Browsing through Reddit through a browser in Windows Phone can be a huge headache though, do you not agree?

These are specific categories which deal with a subject. The top ten of these are: pics, funny, politics, gaming, askreddit, worldnews, videos, iama, todayilearned and wtf. These are displayed at the top of the page to give you quick access to the most popular.
