Reddit purchased the popular Reddit mobile app Alien Blue over a year ago and touted the app as its “official” mobile app. Reddit has now released a brand new official mobile app for iOS and Android. You can still download Alien Blue from the App Store, but this new “Reddit” app is destined as a replacement to be the one true Reddit mobile client.
The new “Reddit” app is not as full featured as Alien Blue, as expected when you compare a version 1 app with a mature one. And it is available only in US, Canada, UK, and Australia at the moment. If you’re not in one of those countries, stick to Alien Blue. If you find Alien Blue too ‘congested’ or ‘busy’, you might want to try out Reddit mobile site on Safari. Simply change the “www” to “m” in Reddit address. For example change the subreddit URL “https://www.reddit.com/r/movies/” to “https://m.reddit.com/r/movies/“ to use the mobile site.
