Today’s update brings the app to version 1.2. In adition to a brand new UI and complications, the app also gained support for r/Random, composing posts, an all new subscriptions page with sections for favorites, multireddits, and subscriptions, all from your wrist.

Nano is a great example of making an incredible app for Apple Watch that is both easy to use and functional. The app even works over LTE when iPhone isn’t around.

Major app makers such as Slack and Instagram have all removed their Watch apps after offering apps that were seemingly ignored and abandoned.

Nano for Reddit is available on the App Store as a free download. We went hands on with the original app, check it out here.
