Reddit’s regular Ask Me Anything posts have gone from a personal, interesting approach to the Q and A session, to a cultural phenomenon. Everyone from the president and large corporations having just made big business changing decisions, to your mom and dad can and have participated in AMA posts. But if you aren’t terribly familiar with Reddit, they can often seem unorganized and be down right confusing to read. Thankfully, Reddit is working to release an app on Android that will make reading AMA posts really easy.
The app, currently available on iOS, turns AMA posts into easy to read, easy to find lists with clearly defined questions and clearly defined answers. Too often in AMA posts, questions and specific answers get lost in a sea of comments that lose sight of the topic at hand. While it’s interesting to see the commentary that might surround a certain polarizing question, sometimes you just want to know how the person hosting the AMA has answered. And that’s not always easy on Reddit’s website. You can switch to a mode that shows unanswered questions in the new app, but the answers view is where you’ll spend most of your time.
Aside from making AMAs much easier to read, you can also search past AMA posts, view by category and enable notifications to keep up with trending AMAs and upcoming posts that may interest you. You don’t have to have an account to use the app, but if you do you can login and upvote or downvote posts as you see fit.
We’ll be sure to let you know when the app launches for Android later this week. Until then, do you remember any AMAs you found interesting, or have any you’d like to see in the future? Let us know.
