Reddit App Now Lets You Search Comments on Posts Directly From the Search Bar

Reddit's official app now provides users with the ability to search for comments within a specific post directly from the search bar.

General Apps Reddit Feature
After updating to version 2023.08.0 of the iOS app, when viewing a post, users can now search within the comments of that post, rather than all of Reddit. The developers describe it like so:

We've been listening to your feedback and you can now search comments within a post on desktop, iOS, and Android apps. So what does this mean? You don't have to "cmd-f" on the post page anymore and you can search comment threads without expanding them. No more long scrolling sessions — quickly get to the parts of the conversation you're looking for and jump in where you want.

Reddit says the feature is now available on desktop, iOS, and Android. The tool builds upon the ability to get search results from replies to original posts, which Reddit introduced in April last year.

In addition, Reddit says it has improved its subreddit search algorithm so that it now delivers a larger number of and more relevant subreddits for most searches. Improvements have also been made to the autocomplete function, which should make it easier to search for communities without having to type in the exact name to find relevant results, according to the developers.

reddit is a dumpster fire. It has its uses but damn, I try to avoid it
That's twitter, a cesspit and dumpster fire in one. Reddit I find is more reliable for product reviews than Amazons own reviews and guidance on many topics (e.g. software suggestions). Plus I enjoy the humour displayed by many on there.

As with any public domain, you have to take all info with a pinch of salt, but I for one am glad it exists. It has entertained and helped me more than it has ever hindered me.

I'd say it's more of a flea market. A lot of it is just other people's trash, sure... but there is also a lot of very topical information that can be useful, and once in a while you might even find an actual gem.

Sometimes I wonder why Apollo isn’t the official app. Oh yeah money.

Good for when you need help with a specific subject. E.g. you're looking to buy a dashcam and there you go there's a subreddit for that with lots of good buying advice. I used to have to join forums for everything, now reddit has it all in one place.
