I wrote the following text for someone else once but i think it kinda fits here too:
what you don't understand is that dying is a natural thing that happens in everyone's life at some point and the most people weren't there to enjoy blood and gore but to learn about the dangers in our daily life where you wouldn't even have thought that they exist.
The most people started to be more aware of their surroundings when driving or f.e. crossing the street and they were thankful that wpd showed them how fast a single mistake could end your life and what dangers exist and how to avoid them.
Yes , there were definitely some gore fetishists but they were a minority. The mods were very active and always tried to keep everything clean and always cooperated with the Reddit admins. Quarantizing the sub was understandable. I can understand why Reddit didn't want them to be on the front page or anywhere near an ad placement and that was absolutely fine.
The sub worked out for a long time but then suddenly BOOM one day the sub was suddenly banned mainly because people were sharing the NZ's shooters video. (I personally think that's absolutely ridiculous because why is the death of those people more important than the death of all the other people on the sub? But nevermind that's just my personal opinion).
The mods of wpd didn't want anyone to share that video and they removed every post containing it and even banned people for asking if someone can send it to them in a pm but in the end anyone was able to find the video with a single Google search request if they really wanted to see it so why all the hassle? Only because it happened recently? Only because it happened in a first world country? They had no real reason to ban that sub because they never broke any rules and it just felt like they waited for a chance to swing the ban hammer. They couldn't just ban it out of nowhere so they had to wait till they had some kind of reason to do it.
I can imagine that you may think that the sub was full of comments that were making fun of the deaths or something like that but no, the people there were really nice, understanding and usually very friendly. They exchanged useful informations and stories and these are the main reasons why the ban just felt unfair for anyone and why people miss it.
I mean you wouldn't watch a documentation about a serial killer because he is so cool or because you enjoy hearing about the people he killed but rather because it's simply informative. just like wpd.

They are also blurry on the mobile website. You could use a higher quality png or SVGs

Yea would be nice, seems like a good client
I'd definitely use an app like that.
I'd personally prefer an app similar to Reddit is fun but i don't think that app is open source so that would be harder to accomplish.
The app is ok but i'll probably stick to the mobile website for now because it looks and feels better.
I don't understand why the voting and reply buttons are so hidden.
The design and placement of functions isn't clear enough in my opinion and i find myself often searching for the most simple features.
I'd love the app if the overall design would be a little bit more like the mobile website and if things would be easier to find and more clear.
