Reddit's Android and iOS apps are getting a big update today

The new Trophy icons for Reddit accomplishments

MageNative is a customized Android and iOS app builder, which facilitates the users to drag and drop the elements and have their apps prepared promptly with no coding involved.

The app's new Theater Mode option allows users to browse media in a "video-first" format, which offers viewing in full screen, as well as the ability to view the content in landscape mode and swipe back and forth between media. Knowing how fast communities can turn from small scale to viral, Reddit added a tool so that moderators can create new moderators for their communities, and add or remove approved submitters.

This feature has also been in beta testing ahead of today with thousands of Reddit users across the site. Reddit says these features were developed as a response to community feedback. A new comment speed read button on Android lets users jump between the top-level comments in a discussion. In a blog post earlier today, the company announced a plethora of new features for both platforms, though a lot of them are iOS exclusive for the time being.

On both platforms, the app will now show the username of the original poster (OP) in the main feed.

Another group of features launching today are designed for Reddit's moderators. "Mod Mode" allows moderators to approve, remove, and flag content in their communities.

Oother moderator tasks, like banning, muting and reporting, have also been simplified in the updated iOS app.

In the past, Reddit has had difficulty in adding "Post Flair" to mobile. To avail, the pre-Christmas offers users are required to, add the product to the cart, then go to the cart and under the Discount, Code section uses the Code "SANTA25" for MageNative Mobile App [M2] and "SANTA20" for MageNative Mobile App [M1].

Reddit, the self-proclaimed "front page of the internet", has announced a major overhaul to its mobile application that was first launched on Android and iOS earlier this year.

Numerous new features are for moderators. Pageview growth across Reddit has doubled since early 2016, and mobile engagement is higher than on desktop, the company also notes.
