Reddit Launches iOS, Android Apps

...

More than a decade after its launch, the front page of the Internet is now available on your smartphone.

Reddit has unveiled its first official iOS and Android apps, bringing "the best of the Web" to you at home, in the office, and on the go.

"Inline images, themes, and simpler navigation means easier discussion, easier discovery, easier cats, easier app," the site says.

Expect a mobile experience similar to that on a desktop: browse news and memes, upvote content, read and reply to threaded comments. The app also shows off a few new features, including a "night" theme, as well as the option to browse in compact or card view.

Reddit's Android app arrived early this year in beta form, allowing users to scroll through top stories; post images, text, or links; comment and vote on content; and search favorite subreddits.

After a round of limited testing, the final app launched today alongside an iOS version in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.

Both support switching between multiple accounts, and lets folks browse without signing in. There is also an overflow menu to share, bookmark, hide, or report a post.

Meanwhile, Alien Blue—the official Reddit app for about 18 months which Reddit acquired in 2014—is being removed from Apple's iTunes App Store, according to The Verge. The iPad version will live on, at least until Reddit develops its own tablet app.

"For everyone joining us on this ride, you can expect a lot of updates and new features that we'll be rolling out to mobile first," Alex Le, vice president of consumer product, said in the official announcement, tipping monthly upgrades and more themes.

Reddit has been taking mobile more seriously, having launched a standalone AMA app in early September for iPhone and Android.
