Reddit brags to be “the front page of the internet” and we tend to think it is not an exaggeration. The meta forum style site is almost 10 years old. In the last several years, Reddit grew at exponential rates, as more and more new users found the community to suit their interests. So the new Reddit AMA app will make things easier for new redditors.
Reddit is a huge internet forum with hundreds of thousands of subreddits. The subs are in fact what turned Reddit into such a vivid attraction. Basically you will find a specialized subreddit for any kind of interest, passion or fetish you have.
However, one of the most important subreddits is Ask Me Anything (AMA). Along with its spin-off “I am … Ask Me Anything” these two are what rose Reddit from the underbelly of the internet into the public eye. President Obama and Bill Gates are just some of the VIPs who chose to go live on Reddit and answer questions. Right now it is quite a trend among famous actors to do an IAMA in order to promote their latest productions.
The special thing about Reddit is its voting system. Each posted link is up-voted or down-voted and ends up higher or lower on the front page of Reddit or any of its subs. The same goes for comments. When a comment receives many upvotes, it goes up on the list. While for experienced Redditors this is the main source of enjoyment, the voting system may look weird for beginners. The democratic voting system allows for interesting questions, links or comments to get to the top, while trolls can easily be ousted.
Due to the dramatic changes in the high-tech industry in the last couple of years, many companies adapt their products for an increasingly mobile world. Google just changed the name of its Google Enterprise services on Tuesday to reflect the mobile trend.
Reddit AMA app offers a user-friendly layout
With this in mind, Reddit launched a specialized AMA app. Right now, the new app is available for iOS, but the company plans to release an Android version very soon. Reddit is a dense branchy environment and can easily get confusing because of its desktop layout. The new Reddit AMA app offers a user friendly experience. Even if the new layout reorganizes the questions and answers for visibility, the voting system remains intact. The Reddit AMA app has the function to announce users of trendy interview takes place, Business Insider notes.
In 2011 Reddit launched an official app which was found unsatisfying and criticized by many redditors. However, there are several third-party Reddit apps available in Google Play and App Store.
