A break away from the slew of games and we’re looking at a Reddit application called Baconit.

It’s a really pleasant way of reading the reddit.com front page and the top reddits. The UI is Metro with nice bouncy sliding animation of the clicked story. Baconit is simple enough to use but it does have handy tips that pop up when first using it.
