reddit ios androidFor the longest time ever, Reddit did not have an official app for smartphones. The closest we got to an official app was when Reddit acquired Alien Blue and made the third-party app an unofficial “official” app, but even then the app was limited to iOS devices. Last year Reddit announced that they were developing an official app for Android, and it looks like it could released soon.

According to a recent announcement posted on Facebook, Reddit announced that its official app for iOS and Android would be coming soon. Details of the app remain scarce at this point, but according to the description it reads, “Inline images, themes, and simpler navigation: coming soon to a smartphone near you.”

Based on this it sounds like pretty much what the current third-party apps are offering at the moment, with the main difference being that this is an app officially created by Reddit. We are not sure what will become of current third-party apps and if they will continue to work with Reddit, but presumably they will, at least until Reddit decides otherwise.

No word on when exactly the official app will be released and if they will be released at the same time, but either way we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for it, so check back with us at a later date for the details.
