Just a couple of days ago, Reddit launched an official app specifically geared toward helping users read "Ask Me Anything" threads, but the app was only available for iOS users through the App Store. It was promised, however, that the app would be available for Android "later this week." A mere two days later the app has been released.

The app, for those unaware, allows users to see when an AMA is active, get notified when an AMA is trending, ask questions (of course), vote on questions, and easily sort for questions that have already been answered. The app can also quickly search for AMAs related to a specific topic like politics, sports, or entertainment.

Ask Me Anything may not be up to speed with Google's latest design vision yet, but its clear that effort was put in to design an app that is consistent with its iOS counterpart while also making use of some of the interface elements unique to Android. If you haven't already left this post for the Play Store, hit the widget below to grab the app.

    Reddit is one of those things like twitter, everyone talks about it and links to twitter/reddit articles but I have never ever read anything worthwhile on either twitter or reddit. Just uninteresting snippets and uninteresting people commenting on those snippets. I just don't get it why anyone would be interested in either.

      You sure don't know how to reddit.

    • Walter Black

      I down voted your comment. I felt like you should know.

        Thanks, at least I understand what reddit is about but I looked around and the site just doesn't attract me, the lay-out is ugly and chaotic, it could learn a lot from google's card lay-out

      Anybody can find something that interests them on Reddit. There are plenty of subreddits for like-minded people.

      Definitely check out some subreddits on topics that interest you. Getting used to Reddit, and how to find stuff, is a bit of a learning curve, but once you get over it, there's a lot of awesome stuff. To be unable to find anything you find worthwhile on Reddit is to not find anything worthwhile off Reddit either, there's just so much on there.

        Except, uhm, you know, life.

          There's a sub for that too

          Because as we all know, it's impossible to have worthwhile social and or educational experiences online.

      I agree about twitter, not about Reddit. Twitter is now just "giveaway" enabler for me. Reddit is my poison though.

        I've even resisted signing up for twatter just for contests..... maybe i should just bite the bullet and get a crappy spam account.

        • Matthew Fry

          Extra entries for AP contests :)

            Eventually these contests are going to give higher priority to REAL & influential social accounts than just regular accounts. I know I would.

          • Matthew Fry

            Shhhh. Don't give them ideas.

    • IrishSid

      You don't know how to use either site then.
      On twitter I follow only things that interest me like android sites, ps4 sites, couple of news sites, tech sites, science stuff... Pretty much every site tweets their articles in real time, it's what led me here.

      And reddit is the exact same. Subscribe to sub reddits that interest you and then eith browse the home page, or browse the particular sub reddit.

      I bet you are the life of every party.

      Reddit has a massive influence on the internet in general. Half the articles I see anywhere I go (Twitter, HuffPost, FB, etc) were on Reddit a good 12 hours before they go mainstream. Although the content is rarely originally from Reddit, that tends to be what gets things out there and then on to the masses.

    what is that tablet in the pics?

    • Frederico Silva

      It's just a placeholder. The screenshot comes from a Samsung tablet, just look at the gorgeous Touchwiz status bar.

      • http://www.twitter.com/andrewpalozzo Andrew Palozzo

        :'(
        I thought they had a nexus 9 :)
        Also not sure how you see touchwiz in the statusbar... it looks like ASOP to me..

        • Frederico Silva

          Very unlikely.

          Nah bro, that's Touchwiz. No doubt about that.

  • http://nopenopenope.nope Ryuuie

    YES. Fuck, I needed this app yesterday... This shall go perfect with Reddit Sync Pro.

    Dark theme, PLEASE! 8-)

    Android app designs do not need to, and should not be, consistent with iOS apps. They should be consistent with Android design guidelines, for maximum usability by Android users.

    I've had it for a while thanks to Reddit Gold, and it's been beautiful and smooth since day one. These people have done a great job.

  • folkrav

    Seriously, if they made an official client app that looked and worked as well as this one, I would download the shit out of it and Reddit harder than ever.
