I've been working on this Reddit app for Windows 8. I call it Redditopia.
It started as a quick weekend project to teach myself the WinRT programming model. But after I bought my first tablet(Surface RT), I kept craving that one more feature and have now spent more weekends(and nights) on this than originally planned.
It has enough features now and I feel confident in introducing it to this audience. Give it a try and do let me know if you like it.

App download link: Redditopia app for Windows in the Windows Store
