Reddit has an official app for smartphones but for some reason, it is not well-loved by the users. The official Reddit app has a lot of clutter on the main page like the awards and sponsored posts. It got two hamburger menus, both of which serve different purposes. So if you have a specific usage on Reddit then you should try one of the third-party Reddit clients. To help you choose the best one, we have compiled a list of Reddit apps you should use in 2023. Meanwhile, you can learn to browse Reddit Anonymously.
