Job listings hint at official Reddit apps for Android and iOS


Reddit is a super-popular social networking site focused on news aggregation alongside general findings that people come across. You can literally locate any topic you can think of and if a section (or 'subreddit') hasn't yet been dedicated to this topic, it's simple to get started and create a new home for everything cats, dogs and even piercings in the weirdest places.

The website does not have official apps available and rather relies on third-party alternatives. That is until now, according to a new job listing. Official Reddit apps are in the works for Android and iOS.

The job posting was published by Reddit admin taxidermyunicornhead in the For Hire subreddit. Both Android and iOS have been mentioned on the skill requirement list with Java and Objective C highlighted. We can look to expect a similar, unified experience across the board with the new apps with the addition of location-based advertising and the ability to post content to social networking accounts.

It is still early days, but we'll keep a lookout for more details. Are you interested by an official Reddit app or are you content with the plethora of third-party alternatives already available?
