[APP] Reddit Timeline now live on Google Glass

Professional time wasters everywhere, rejoice! The Internet’s home of armchair activism and cat gifs is now available as a Timeline app on Google Glass. Thanks to the hard work of Malcolm Nguyen, you can now swipe through your posts, share directly to Reddit, and of course, wield your voting power to curate the web.


You start with the standard Glass OAUTH screen requesting permission to connect to the web service. Once you grant access, you receive the following confirmation screen:


Congratulations! You’re now ready to watch animated gifs. The current version sports the following features:

  • Top 25 post from your FrontPage within a bundle updated every hour.
  • Upvote/Downvote
  • Share to Reddit
  • Comment Threading
  • Read aloud comments
  • Reply to comment

After you’ve cleared the authorization, you have the ability to swipe through your top posts. Designed for the Glass UI, the interface is reminiscent of the Google+ app, with image thumbnails displayed full screen.


From there, you know the drill: select a post, upvote or downvote, and comment:

Find something you think will reap you glorious karma?


Text posts also display well, with a full screen title display (tap to dive in):


Nguyen admitted his own Reddit addiction drove development of the app, to which we say, orangered for you, sir. To get started, head on over to Reddit Timeline.
