Reddit seeks beta testers for its new Android app
How would you like to be a beta tester for Reddit's upcoming Android app? The online community has put up a web page where you can leave your name if you are interested. Reddit will continue to accept information from those who want to participate in the beta test, until 2pm EST on December 18th. Just a few thousand will be selected to take part in the first round of beta testing.

Prospective beta testers will be asked various questions, such as their experience using Reddit on a mobile device. Although Reddit wants to have a representative group of testers, the odds of being chosen are not in your favor; the site has over 200 million active users each month. Those selected to be a beta tester will communicate with Reddit through the use of a private subreddit.

While Reddit says that it does not have a firm date for the launch of the beta, it does expect to have it ready for testers in the next month or two. If you have an interest in being part of the group that will mold the look and feel of Reddit's Android app through the use of feedback, click on the sourcelink to sign up.

Interesting... I find their mobile site to be a slow, choppy, mess with poor UI and a terrible experience. "Reddit is fun" is a great app if you like the Reddit theme/colors/style. It imitates it really well and adapts the Reddit UI to a touch screen just right without forcing you to relearn the UI. It doesn't even feel like a third party app. I use "Relay for Reddit" daily, though. It has a fantastic design and layout that feels extremely fluid and right.

There are plenty of great third party reddit apps.
