One of the main features is ‘Mod mode’ that is for moderators. This allows moderators to approve/remove/flag content. Reddit further says that it has even made most of the moderator tasks simpler which include banning, reporting and muting. To get mass action on the posts, there includes a tool ‘Mod Queue’.

The new theatre mode option for iOS apps lets the user browse video in “video-first” format. Through this format, users can have full-screen viewing experience with the media files. They can even select the Landscape mode to view the content. The full-screen video mode is made by Apollo which is one of the excellent features of the third party Reddit app.
