For years, people have enjoyed Reddit through the traditional website layout and if you wanted to use a mobile app, your only option was third party developers. You may have heard of Reddit in the past, however, this old sensation is marking new territory this month by releasing an official Reddit app. So without further hesitation, let’s get right to it.

The Tech – Does the app work as advertised?

In short, yes, but let me break it down for you. For those of you who do not know, Reddit is an app kind of like Facebook or Twitter.

On Reddit there are communities, like groups, where you can subscribe, post, and upvote other posts. They have made the user interface of the app easy to navigate and in my opinion, it is a much better layout than their website. You can also easily post a new image, text, or link to a community right from the feed, or front page. Reddit App

You can also easily access your saved posts, your own posts, comments, upvotes and images in your profile. But what is really amazing is the settings inside the app. The Reddit app gives users the option to blur NSFW images, which is on by default, and show posts for adults over 18 years old, also.

Not only this, Reddit has also given the ability to change the appearance of the app by including a “Night mode” theme, which turns the whites to blacks and vise-versa. All in all this new Reddit App is an improvement for Redditors everywhere and new users alike. Did I mention, like Twitter, you can also have multiple accounts in the app?

The Trek – Does the app need improvements?

Like all apps, there is always room for improvement. However, in this case, I had a hard time finding bugs or problems. For a new app this is great, however, I would expect nothing less from a company who decided to release their app 10 years after their website launch. However, one thing to consider is when posting to a community, there isn’t really an easy way of searching communities. Basically, you have to know the name of the community you would like to post to before creating a post from your front page. I would much rather have the ability to search for communities from this screen.

Does the App Stay or Go?

After using different third-party Reddit apps for many years, having something offical is amazing. I will most certainly keep this app on my phone and I suggest you download it for yourself.
