Official: Reddit app for Android and iPhone Launched
Despite being in existence for about a decade, Reddit just announced its official applications for mobile devices yesterday. The closest the popular ‘social news networking service and news website‘ had, is Alien Blue for iOS which the company purchased in 2014.
Built by in-house engineers, the official Reddit app for Android and iPhone are described as “faster, more modern and more usable”. The apps which faces competition from offerings by third-party developers such as the BaconReader and Sync for Reddit; come with features such as inline images, support for themes, threaded comments and messaging tools.
Mobile experience for users has been an area the company has focused on in recent times, now it has yielded fruits. Although it is said to be restricted to some countries, the native Reddit app for Android and iPhone is available for download here (or on Google Play and App Store).
According to reports, Alien Blue will no longer be available to new users for download on either Google Play or App Store. Also, those who login into the app within the next week get free three months of Reddit Gold.
