Chen Chen, Reddit’s lead iOS Engineer commenting on the new app said,
When you open the app, you will realise that the feed is loaded immediately and you can scroll very fast. Even when the network is slow, it still feels very smooth. We have paid a lot of attention to the little details, even when it does not seem to matter. Instead of that we could have built a very complex system, just like the desktop with all the features we had. But we decided not to, because we really want to ship the core foundations
