Remember that neat new Reddit app – ‘Reditr’ – we mentioned back in July? Well today the folks behind Reditr have launched an alpha version that you can download and try.
Reditr undoubtedly has the feel of Tweetdeck – one time the go-to Twitter client for most – which makes navigating subreddits and sharing content an easy experience.
Features offered include:
- New Item Submission
- Up and down voting
- In-app image previews
- In-app link previews
- Light and dark themes
- Account settings
Download Reditr for Ubuntu
One thing to note about Reditr is that it is not a typical Ubuntu application since it uses a shell script to build a private Chrome Extension which actually wraps a web-based application.
To try it out download the install script here. Once downloaded, right-click on the script, choose Properties and check the box next to “allow executing file as a program“.
Then from a new Terminal simply cd to the path you downloaded it to and run ./reditr_ubuntu.run from terminal.
