Reddit has today introduced its official app for iPhone, giving fans the ability to browse their favorite subreddits without relying on third-party alternatives. It’s totally free to download, and those who grab it during launch week will get free Reddit gold.
The official Reddit app is loosely based on Alien Blue, a popular client for iOS that Reddit actually acquired back in October 2014. If you’re an Alien Blue users, then, some of the interface elements, fonts, and features will seem familiar to you.
But on the whole, this is a new Reddit app. It lets you browse the whole Reddit community on the go, and you can search and discover subreddits by topic or interest. You can also submit your own comments, images, and links.
“The best part about Reddit, after all, is you,” Reddit says. “Whether you’re into movies or space travel, coding or baking, world news headlines or Hollywood gossip, astronomy or astrology—or all of the above—instantly share your content and ideas with millions.”
The app offers two views — compact and card view — and supports themes, so you can apply different looks. There’s a night theme as standard, which is super handy for those who like to browse Reddit in bed while others are asleep in the same room.
If you download the new Reddit app during launch week, you’ll receive three months of Reddit gold absolutely free. This gives you an ad-free experience in the mobile apps, and extra features when browsing Reddit on the web.
You can download the app by following the link below. Note that this isn’t a universal release yet, so it isn’t optimized for iPad.
