Reddit About to Get Its Own Android App
A fresh Reddit job listing confirmed the fact that an official Android app is brewing. They want to go mobile and plan on hiring mobile app developers, with requirements for the job including strong Java skills for Android and knowledge of Android design.
Reddit already has a bunch of Play Store third party apps, like BaconReader, Reddit Sync and Reddit is Fun. Reddit would work together with this parties to develop on their successful initiatives. Let’s just hope we won’t have another Twitter on our hands, since in the case of Twitter successful apps, there are API limits that keep additional users from signing up.
Hopefully Reddit is more friendly with third party apps and won’t tackle them like this. It would also be nice to get to check out the answers of stars on AMA and post questions in an user friendly UI from an Android device, right?
