Reddit is now available as an app – say goodbye to real life

Reddit, the self-heralded front page of the internet, is a tricky beast.

With an interface that shrugs off modern web conventions of flashy design in favour of a clean, basic navigation system (it looks like it hasn't been updated since 2005), newcomers are often left baffled by its convoluted structure of 'threads', 'subreddits' and 'upvotes'.

They could find Reddit's new app offering a lot easier to live with. 

Available for both iOS and Android, the app version of Reddit's vast forums is a clean, aesthetically pleasing experience, offering more of a 'tour' than a full Reddit experience - but that might be a good thing.

It's polarising reviewers so far, with both versions gaining an equal spread of one star and five star reviews. 

With this on your phone, you're bound to miss a few bus stops on your next commute.
