Reddit app update brings more of the website to mobile

From Engadget - December 18, 2017

First up, iPhone and iPad users will now be able to peruse images, gifs and videos in theater mode, which will allow them to view media in landscape mode and swipe left and right to see older or newer media posts. The iOS version of the app will also now support live comments, give users the option to use Safari as their in-app browser rather than Reddit's native one and allow users to talk one on one through a new chat feature. Android users are also getting the "speed read" button that iOS users have, which lets you quickly navigate through the top comments in any discussion.

Both iOS and Android users are also getting the ability to differentiate their posts by adding flair while "Cake Day" icons -- which acknowledge a user's Reddit anniversary -- and trophies -- which are earned through various accomplishments -- will now be available through the app. Additionally, user names of those who have created content being shared by others will be visible on the app's home feed.
