That didn't take long. Following on from our review on Tuesday (read it here), Quinn Damerell has updated his Reddit client, Baconit, to v1.6. Alongside various improvements to the speed of the application, Damerell has tweaked the subreddit live tiles to use dynamic images from Reddit, real time formatting when submitting links, and the ability edit and delete your posts and comments.

I know I've just reviewed this, but it's worth saying once more - this is one smart piece of software. There's a huge amount of information on Reddit, and this app captures the information you want, presents it cleanly in the Metro style, and never gets in the way of working with the Reddit users. Not everyone is a fan of Reddit, but if you are, then consider picking up the £1.49 "donation" version. Both this and the free flavour have the same functionality, but indie devs like Damerell, and the stories of their successes, are key to the future of Windows Phone.

Naturally there's a thread on Reddit discussing the changes.
