A new desktop application for browsing, commenting, and reading social news site Reddit is in development – and it’s coming to Ubuntu.
Reditr, which will be see its first alpha release at some point in the coming weeks, takes a ‘Tweetdeck’ style approach in presenting content from the site.
Sub-reddits can be viewed/subscribed to as auto-updating ‘columns’.
Amongst the features so far promised:
- New Post creation
- Comment posting
- Up and down voting
- In-app image previews
- In-app link previews
- Light and dark themes
How does it look in action?
Reditr’s developers – Dimitry Vinogradov and David Zorychta – tell me that there are still ‘many features to be added’ – so if you don’t see something essential to your behaviour don’t assume it missing quite yet.
In the spirit of keeping things fair, Reditr will be available across all major platforms: Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome.
