Entertainment and social news network Reddit has launched the Android and iOS version of its app which means that users can now download it from the respective app stores.
The new app will replace the unofficial app, named Alien Blue in the US, UK, Canada and Australia followed by other countries.
"This is the beginning of our journey with you, our app users. For everyone joining us on this ride, you can expect a lot of updates and new features that we'll be rolling out to mobile first," Alex Le, vice president of consumer product at Reddit said in a statement.
"The app will bring in an improved inbox, thereby making it easier for the users to read and add comments below the thread. The new app also comes with some exciting features such as 'card view' that aims to present multi-media content in a better manner. Users can now instantly share images, articles, and ideas with millions," he added.
The new apps also allowed the network to launch platform specific features such as a 'speed-read' button for its iOS app. Users can now filter and find active communities according to their preferences. Furthermore, the engineering team is already looking at launching an update a month.
However, the Windows platform seems to be missing from Reddit's radar and Windows users will have to be content with the unofficial app.
