tl;dr: Marginally as useful as Reddit Enhancement Suite in a browser but without the benefit of other browser services and features. This is a good idea, I think. Having a client on the desktop that can switch profiles easily and enables you to have an uncluttered interface is a great opportunity, but there are some really rough spots that make me pass on becoming a customer. 1. UI is a bit rough and missing things (close the main window. now try to open it. gotcha! open the font selector. what font are you changing? can you tell? now pick a new font. anything at all change anywhere? no? why not?) 2. I find posts I want to save or archive to DEVONthink or Evernote. I can 'star' (Save) them, but there isn't a good export option. I can select the text of a post and paste it somewhere, without the poster's information, thread name, date, URL to original post or any way to reference it. I think this app would be much better if the UI stuff was resolved/improved (I would like to change display fonts for the interface and then force a font for the contents of posts fwiw) and there was a really elegant Share action or way to nicely format a post or comment or thread into another application. I personally prefer markdown formatted text but even instapaper/readability/something-like-that would be fine, though I know there are some problems with using article-centric formatting tools for discussions and comment threads. If you just view in a browser you have similar issues but you can compensate with browser bookmarklets like PrintLimiter to let you drop parts of the page you aren't interested in (navigation, headers, columns, subreddit info, profile info, advertisements) and then you are left with a leaner page that is a tidy webarchive suitable for export to PDF or clipping into something else without losing interesting references. I don't want to be discouraging because I'd like to buy something like Bleam, it just needs to be more flexible for my use case.
