Alerts for Reddit allows you to receive phone notifications for hot new posts on your favorite subreddits, or by your favorite users. Whether you're tracking /r/worldnews or /r/birdswitharms, your phone will notify you when a new post has quickly risen to the top of a subreddit. For user tracking, you can get notifications for new posts and/or comments by any public user on Reddit, and for thread tracking, you can get notifications for all top-level comments on a post or comment thread!
- Add/remove subreddits, users, or threads at any time to start/stop seeing notifications
- No need to link your reddit account - you can subscribe for notifications to any public subreddit, user, post, or comment thread.
- Add up to 3 notification subscriptions of your choosing for free; upgrade to Premium to receive notifications for more than 3.
- Set the notification frequency for each subreddit: "Low" if you only want breaking news, "High" if you want notifications for all hot posts, or "All" to get notified for all new posts for a smaller subreddit.
- Set the notification frequency for each user: "Posts only" or "Posts and Comments"
- Filter notification subscriptions by keyword. For example, if you want to receive notifications for /r/science, but only if the title contains 'bird' or 'reptile', you can!
- Got a Reddit app on your phone? Notifications will launch you straight to the app. No app? Notifications will bring you to Reddit via the browser.
- View recent alerts for your subscribed subreddits and users right in the app.
- Never miss the posts you care about!
This update includes a full UI reboot (huzzah), as well as a commonly-requested feature: keyword filters! Now you can filter subreddit, user, or thread subscriptions. For example, if you want to receive notifications for /r/science, but only if the title contains 'bird' or 'reptile', you can. Try it out!

Ratings and Reviews
Absolutely Love This App
I long searched for a way to have as close to possible up to the minute alerts on new postings on certain subs or Reddit. I’ve tried IFTTT. I’ve tried Hooks. I’ve even tried the push notifications from the third-party apps I’ve been using or testing. Alerts for Reddit has surely been the best thing yet for me. Had tested it out for a few days and immediately purchased the premium a while back. And today I get an a update to follow threaded conversations and had absolutely had to write this review. Love this app.
Would love such an app for Twitter notifications as it would allow me to use third party twitter clients vs the official app. Would also love a Siri Shortcut or 3D Touch action to quickly add a sub or user to follow. Either way.... 5 stars from me.
I love the app, it keeps me up to date and I love ! but why is it when I get a notification and I go to the Reddit post via the notification why would the post be posted two hours ago? the notification and post times don't match up.. note: frequency is on high
I’ve been using this app for years. It’s one of the only apps I can depend on to reliably deliver notifications for new/hot posts on Reddit. The fact that the notifications also open in whichever Reddit app you choose is a plus! Minimalistic app with a massive amount of functionality.
