Spring is here, and this means speculation surrounding WWDC is in the air. This time it's about the next generation Apple Watch. Also with spring comes some of our favorite fitness apps, with a top 5 from the running department. Apple fixes a Siri bug on the iPhone 6s, and Reddit launches its official app. Here are some Apple highlights from the week:
After years of serving as one of the Internet’s most popular social websites despite never having an official mobile app, Reddit now has an official mobile app.
The process of this app’s creation began several months ago when Reddit acquired the popular third-party Reddit browsing app Alien Blue. At the time they named it their official third-party browsing app, but as of today Alien Blue has been taken off of the app store and Reddit’s now official app has taken its place.
So how is it? Well anyone that used Alien Blue previously will notice that a lot of that app’s designs are still the foundation of this new, official app. The main philosophy here appears to be minimalism, which has always been Reddit’s philosophy in terms of layout.
AMA interviews on Reddit have become a popular way for artists, scientists, politicians and even normal people to interact with the Reddit community, promote upcoming projects and address social issues. Some may even argue that the Ask Me Anything threads are the only thing worth reading on the social news website. Maybe this is why Reddit has decided to launch an app solely dedicated to AMA interviews.
The new app from Reddit gives users an easy way to sort and access all the latest and past popular AMA threads posted to reddit.com. Users can search various categories like Entertainment or Science/Tech, or use the Hot tab to find the latest trending topics. The app also marks active threads and it allows users to up vote the best questions and content from their mobile devices.
