Reddit iOS Update Brings Support for iPad

Reddit today updated its official iOS app to version 2.0, fixing a few bugs for Reddit Live as well as introducing full support for the iPad. The first-party app, which launched in April of this year, has been available only for the iPhone and iPod touch until today.

On the iPad, Reddit keeps essentially all of the same features and tabs that users can expect: timeline, subscriptions, inbox, and profile. Each area of the app allows users to browse their subreddits, search for new ones, comment on posts, reply to messages, and more.

Many users have stuck to popular third-party Reddit apps like Narwhal, iAlien, Baconreader, Eggplant, Antenna, and Alien Blue in place of Reddit's official app. Alien Blue, which was acquired by Reddit in 2014, has since been deleted from the App Store so as to not conflict with the company's new first-party app.

I've actually been waiting for this update. Right now I have to use Safari on my iPad Pro. Eager to see how this looks.

That's cute but the official Reddit app has always been way too limited.

Antenna is much faster and has way more features. A disgusting design, but performance and features make up for it. Highly recommend it.

Finally! I feel like I can say that without being ridiculous. I waste way too much time on Reddit (as well as here, lol). I just wish it would stop freaking asking me to allow notifications constantly! Like I said, I already spend too much time in that app—I don't need more reasons to open it up. It's just annoying now.
