reddit decides to launch an Android app

redditlogoCommunity driven Content Site reddit’s finally getting an Android app.

The announcement was made on its official blog by its product manager Ashley Higgins for native mobile.

Ashley writes:

As many of you know, the team here has been working hard to bring our official native Reddit app to Android for a while now. Now that we’re getting close to having something to share, we’d love to invite some redditors to participate in the beta to provide us with feedback and help identify those nasty bugs so we can squash them before wide release.

Those interested in testing the app may sign up for the beta between Dec 11 & Dec 18.

You’ll need to sign up using this link. You will be asked a few questions regarding your frequency of usage, whether you’ve used Reddit on mobile before, etc.

reddit said it did not have a firm launch date for the beta, but expected it sometime in the next month or 2.

A few notes to remember: Completion of the sign-up form does not guarantee that you’ll be selected to participate.

Launched in 2005, reddit today has over 200M monthly active users.

According to Ashley,  a private subreddit with the selected beta testers will be opened to discuss the beta once it begins.

Incidentally, reddit already offers an official iOS client that goes by the name Alien Blue, after acquiring the app in October 2014.
