The wait is over as Reddit finally launches its first official Android and iOS apps. In 2014 Reddit acquired the unofficial Reddit app “Alien Blue” and relaunched it. And now, Reddit has built its official app from scratch.
Official Reddit App not available in all Countries
Although the launch news stirs some excitement it immediately fades away when you learn the apps are not available in all countries yet. If you are trying to install the official Reddit Android app and greeted with the message “This Item is Not Available in Your Country”, then you may have to follow this guide for installing such country restricted apps.
3 months of Reddit Gold membership free for app users
The initial feedback for the app is not so good and it seems there are some bugs here and there. The design too isn’t that attractive. But the only thing that should convince you to install the official app is that you will get 3 months of Reddit Gold membership for free. Once the app gets installed you should receive a notification saying your saying you’ve been gifted 3 months of Reddit Gold.
Switch Between Multiple Accounts
It’s good to see that the very first official Reddit app comes bundled with native function to switch between multiple user accounts. You can “Add Account” or ‘Switch between accounts” under “Settings” – “Switch users”
The other noticeable features include “Night Mode” that makes the text white and the background black.
Third Party Alternatives
If you are still not happy with the official Reddit App, the following third party Reddit apps should help.

- Baconreader [ Android | iOS ]
- Relay for Reddit [ Android ]
- Reddit sync [ Android ]
