Alien Blue is an unofficial Reddit.com browsing app by Morrissey Exchange Pty. This wonderful app offers a new way for users to browse the self-proclaimed “front page of the internet” from the convenience of their iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and soon to be Mac computer. Although there is also an official Reddit app this third party production offers a number of unique features to elevate the browsing experience.
Reddit is a social news and cultural website with millions of visitors, currently ranked 125th in global traffic. Users submit links to either outside links on the web or original content, after which other users can “upvote” or “downvote” to create a ranking of the hottest links. There are also categories or “subreddits” which links can be categorized to, allowing users to browse content by subject or interests. Additionally, there are discussion forums and a comments page to go with each link. There is also an option to customize your front page to only show content from the subreddits you are interested in. From news to funny pics, philosophy to cute animals and babies, history to current memes; Reddit has thousands of things to browse through.
Alien Blue organizes Reddit into a fantastically packaged app that is easy to use and customizable. Alien Blue allows you to sign in with your Reddit username, vote on submissions, leave comments, and perform all other major functions available to a Reddit user. A nice perk of Alien Blue is that it comes equipped with a list of the most popular subreddits ready to be personalized with a few taps of the screen. Of course Alien Blue also allows you to check your inbox and flips easily to be viewed sideways as well as upright.
Reddit is free to browse and free to become a member, but has a pay option for Reddit Gold which adds some extra features. Similarly, the Alien Blue app is free to download, with a Pro Upgrade costing $1.99 and getting rid of the advertising which is integrated into the app. The Pro Upgrade also offers the option to create posts, image galleries, tilt scroll, as well as a number of other options. Whether you’re keeping up with the latest memes, trying to engage in viciously polarized political debates, looking for a great programming community, learning a wealth of new information, or just in it for some lulz, Alien Blue is a great app to go with when browsing Reddit.
