Reddit Launches Its First Native iOS, Android Mobile Apps
In the past, Reddit users had to download third-party mobile apps to read and make comments using their smartphones.Reddit is now offering its own native apps for iOS and Android users who want to read and make comments on the popular Website, replacing the need for third-party apps that previously provided access for users. The native Reddit apps debuted April 7 with a host of improvements for iPhone and Android users, including the availability of inline images and themes as well as simpler navigation to find discussions and make comments, according to the site. The apps allow users to read threaded comments, while an improved inbox lets users see the messages that are sent to them, along with their personal comment histories, and post replies as well as comments that are made on their posts. Users can also customize their Reddit app experiences using a new night theme and options to browse in either compact view or card view. More themes and options are expected in the future, according to Reddit.
Reddit, which went live in 2005, is a free online community where users post, share and vote on content, which can then be read and commented on and shared by others on a wide variety of topics that are being discussed online. Reddit is an open-source project whose users are free to contribute new features, fixes and more to the community.
