Boost for reddit 1.2.0 is out: Android 7.1 shortcuts, flair posts, new cards view, read wiki pages and a lot more!

Hi friends!

Yes, new version. Boost for reddit 1.2.0 is live.

Android Nougat 7.1 home screen shortcuts: It will show search posts and your first subscriptions in the list (subreddits, multireddits, all, frontpage or saved). Remember that you can rearrange your subscriptions list in “Subscriptions”.

Swipe to close works now in all media viewers (images, gifs, videos and albums). Choose your prefered swipe direction in Settings-Media. Tap to close is still enabled by default. If tap to close is disabled, tapping the content will hide/show the toolbar buttons (and description text in albums).

Album viewer has been redesigned. Tap or swipe up the image description at the bottom to read the full text. Swipe down to collapse or hide.

Download or share media files has been included in swipe view. Files will be shared from internal cache, so they won’t show up in your external storage.

Fixed many reddit deep links to open in app, including wiki pages and user profiles. If you find a reddit link that fails to open in app, let me know.
