Reddit is one of the most popular websites in the world but up until now the site didn’t have it’s own official app for iPhone or Android. Reddit’s stance was that the third-party apps out there pretty much get it right so why waste resources reinventing the wheel. Alien Blue is the default goto app for anyone on an iOS device while Android has a few popular choices.

Reddit’s first official app focuses strictly on the AMA (Ask Me Anything) subreddit. The AMA subreddit is one of reddit’s most popular and, if you’re not familiar with it, is a Q&A with everyone from NASA scientists, phone sex operators, A-List celebrities even the President of the United States.

The app, Ask Me Anything — official reddit AMA app, is available on iOS now and will be released on Android later this week.

Discover “Ask Me Anything” interviews with everyone from movie stars to astronauts to artists in the official AMA app from reddit.

“We want to make it easier for new users to join Reddit and experience all the awesome content,” said Ellen Pao, senior VP at Reddit who oversees the company’s mobile efforts. “That’s part of the overall goal of becoming a more mature company.”
