For the longest time ever, Reddit did not have an app of their own. It was only in 2014 that they acquired Alien Blue, one of the more popular unofficial Reddit apps available out there, thus making it sort of official. However it took the company an additional 2 years before an official Reddit app was launch.
Now for some reason the app was only supported on mobile devices like smartphones, meaning that using it on tablets like the iPad would yield a less-than-optimal experience, but that has changed as Reddit has since updated its official app where it will now support the iPad along with the usual host of bug fixes and whatnot.
We should note that the iPad version does not differ from the iPhone version in terms of features, so what you have on the iPhone is pretty much what you’ll get on the iPad. The only difference, we guess, is that it has been designed to be optimized for the iPad, so your experience should be greatly improved.
The latest update to the Reddit app which brings it to version 2.0 is available via the iTunes App Store, so if you don’t have automatic updates enabled on your tablet, you will have to grab the update manually.
