According to a new job listing, official Reddit apps are in the works for Android and iOS. Reddit is a super-popular social networking site focused on news aggregation alongside general findings that people come across. 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?

Job listings hint at official Reddit apps for Android and iOS


Still no official app :/

This message was brought to you by the numbers 0 and 1

Really? This is why they are hiring. As stated above they also announced that they are creating an official app yesterday.

Other than not having the now standard Android navigation drawer, I think Bacon Reader is easier to use, and more configurable. However, I've found that Reddit Sync is combines the best features of both these apps.

I got better than official for my Z30, runs better than any app avail in android compared on my Nexus 7.
