It’s been almost 18 months since Reddit acquired the rights to the popular Alien Blue iOS app, stating then that it would be rebranded as an official client, but Reddit: The Official App finally made it to the U.S. App Store today. However, it is not yet available in all countries.

With the official Reddit app, you can:

  • Browse all of Reddit, wherever you are
  • Search and discover communities by topic or interest
  • Submit your own comments, images, links, and stories for others to view and discuss
  • Customize Reddit with themes (including night theme)
  • View in either compact view or card view
  • Stay up to date with your orangereds with Inbox: messages, comment replies, post replies, and mentions … 


The company says that everyone logging into Reddit with the app in its launch week will be given three free months of Reddit Gold. It’s not immediately clear how ‘launch week’ is defined, so we’d suggest doing it today or tomorrow.

The app is a free download on iTunes, joining Reddit’s first official iOS app Ask Me Anything, launched back in 2014. The company has also launched an official Android app.
