“Finally” is one of these terms that gets overused in tech information tales, but I consider it is good to say that it is taken a pretty long time for Reddit to release its to start with formal, native apps for iOS and Android.

Right until now, the firm has manufactured do with Alien Blue, which started out out as a third-bash app just before getting acquired by Reddit in 2014. But as Sarah Perez claimed this morning, the company’s engineering staff made the decision rebuild the app from scratch to make it “faster, additional modern-day and additional usable.”

In the video clip higher than, I do a brief runthrough of the app. As with most other information apps, the content likely matters additional than any specific characteristics, but there are some items well worth displaying off, like the way the navigation has been redesigned for mobile, the new graphic view and the app’s overall pace — which is terrific right up until you are attempting to follow a backlink to one more web-site and every thing quickly slows down.

You can obtain the iOS and Android apps here.
