We don’t need to tell you that we live in a mobile world, seeing as you happen to be visiting a website dedicated to reporting on the greatest mobile operating system on the planet. However, that doesn’t mean that everyone got the memo a few years back. Better late than never, self proclaimed front page of the Internet, Reddit, has posted a job listing for going mobile and plans on hiring mobile application developers. The job listing specifically mentions a candidate should have strong Java skills for Android and knowledge of Android design.
Currently, Reddit has plenty of successful third-party applications on the Google Play Store. Some of our favorites, in no particular order, include BaconReader, Reddit Sync, and Reddit is Fun. The job listing did mention that the Reddit team would work closely with existing third-party developers, to help them build upon their already successful applications.
While having an officially supported application is great news, one can’t help but think of Twitter and what happens to successful applications over there. Due to API limits, once a third-party Twitter app makes it big, no additional users can sign up without going to drastic measures such as resetting everyone’s account and asking them to sign in again. Hopefully Reddit’s official response to third-party applications is of a different, more friendly tune.
