Reddit for Android: As Close to Official Reddit as it Gets

The online world is made up of several factions, clans, communities, social media sites—whatever you want to call them. Pretty much every person in the world with Internet access belongs to at least a few of these, and if not as a member, at the very least as an everyday lurker. After all, we all need our daily dose of cats, bacon, cats with bacon, and so on. Some people prefer the social aspect of sites like Facebook. Then, after you get past pseudo real/serious sites, comes what the new Internet culture has become. You have the likes of Digg, Reddit, and if you walk a little further towards the edge of the abyss, you get 4chan. That said, if you’ve made your way to 4Chan, you’ve gone too far—no, really! Today, we are focusing on Reddit and an app created by XDA Senior Member Theworld2020.

Reddit for Android is an app that, despite not being officially maintained by the Reddit team themselves, is built with everything they would do if they were to code one. For starters, the app is made with Reddit’s own API and coded with every bit of Google and Reddit’s standards, rules, and regulations. This is done so that the app’s experience is as close as your PC’s version of the social site–but without making you believe that you are no longer using Android. As for features, it contains all the features you have grown to love (or hate) of the actual site, such as the ability to see comments, upvote and downvote everything in sight, working account login and even new registration options, browse through your own history (for the narcissist in all of us), and best of all, it is light on battery usage. Oh, and did we mention that the app is not only free but ad-free as well? (That’s really a plus over most other Reddit apps out there.)

The app is fresh out of the oven,and the dev is looking for feedback on how to make it better. Maybe you can suggest a few options that are missing, or maybe you came across a bug. Either way, please drop by the thread and take the app for a spin. Good luck, and remember: If you see 4chan in the URL, you went too far. You can find more information in the Reddit App thread.

Microsoft Reaches Pre-Install Agreement With New OEMs

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta. Having its top apps on Android was just a stepping stone...
