“Lastly” is a type of phrases that will get overused in tech information tales, however I feel it’s truthful to say that it’s taken a reasonably very long time for Reddit to launch its first official, native apps for iOS and Android.

Till now, the corporate has made do with Alien Blue, which began out as a 3rd-social gathering app earlier than being acquired by Reddit in 2014. However as Sarah Perez reported this morning, the corporate’s engineering staff determined rebuild the app from scratch to make it “quicker, extra trendy and extra usable.”

Within the video above, I do a fast runthrough of the app. As with most different information apps, the content material in all probability issues greater than any particular person options, however there are some issues value displaying off, like the best way the navigation has been redesigned for cellular, the brand new picture view and the app’s general velocity — which is nice till you’re making an attempt to comply with a hyperlink to a different website and all the things all of a sudden slows down.

You’ll be able to obtain the iOS and Android apps right here.
