Reddit reaches for the mainstream with new apps (The 3:59, Ep. 24)

Today's podcast gets into changes on Reddit, automated delivery tech and the newest Star Wars trailer.

Reddit (finally) launched new mobile apps for iOS and Android.


Reddit is getting closer to its self-described status as the "front page of the Internet."

The online message board on Thursday unveiled new apps for Apple's iOS and Google's Android mobile operating systems, letting users more easily access the site on the go. The company previously offered an app called Alien Blue, which was created by a fan. Additionally, the company kept up its effort to make Reddit a friendlier place by allowing users to block trolls from pestering them. We discuss whether these changes will help Reddit build up its loyal fan base.

Also on the podcast, we debate the merits of an automated roving delivery robot called Carry and how excited we are (or aren't) about the newest Star Wars trailer.

The 3:59 gives you bite-size news and analysis about the top stories of the day, brought to you by CNET Executive Editor Roger Cheng (currently on parental leave), Senior Writer Ben Fox Rubin and Producer Bryan VanGelder.
