Reddit launched his mobile app for iOS and Android device, a much awaited mobile application.
According to Alex Le, the company’s vice president of product. “While looking at the future, we thought about other people on mobile devices. Our original plan was to reuse Alien Blue and modernize it, but when we got down to it, we found it was faster to build a new foundation and bring it to 100 million people in the future.”
Alien Blue was the default Reddit iOS app till now. It was created by an independent developer Jason Morrissey, but was acquired in October 2014.
The reddit app includes the following features
- Browse all of Reddit, wherever you are
- Search and discover communities by topic or interest
- Submit your own comments, images, links, and stories for others to view and discuss
- Customize Reddit with themes (including night theme)
- View in either compact view or card view
- Stay up to date with your orangereds with Inbox: messages, comment replies, post replies, and mentions.
This is to note, that the new Reddit apps are optimized for smartphones, but not tablets.
