A great third-party way to view Reddit – Beam – has just gotten even better with a move to version 2.0.

Ready to browse

Built to browse, the client does a great job of providing a quick and easy way to take a look at everything that is happening on Reddit. The biggest change in the update is a brand new interface that looks great on the iPhone. Developer Awkward also says the new version is much more stable and faster than previous editions.

Users can now easily access their Reddit Inbox from the app to keep track of any private messages sent through the service.

Other new features also include multireddit support and a subreddit search option to help you find exactly what you’re looking for. The app’s share service has also been greatly improved.



With an in-app purchase, you can unlock a number of other features, including the ability to browse quickly through media.

Beam for Reddit is designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and can be downloaded now on the App Store for free.

With an in-app purchase of $1.99, you can unlock a number of other display options including a night mode made for low-light reading, a media view feature to quickly browse through media and photos, and metadata control.

And if you’re interested, the official Reddit client Alien Blue is also available to download on the App Store now for free.
