If you ever tried to look at one of Reddit’s excellent AMAs (Ask Me Anything) on the iPad, or even the desktop, you will have experienced the a sense of futility, the feeling that there are many gems buried in the threads that you’ll never read because it’s too damn ugly and messy.
Interviewly takes these threads – where various celebs and interesting people answer questions from Reddit users – and cleans them up into something that looks more like a feature fro a Sunday magazine that a forum
My screenshots above show the original and the Interviewly versions of the John Malkovich AMA. Quite a difference, huh? IT looks great on the iPad’s retina display. The site’s tagline runs thusly:
Interviews with interesting people, pulled from Reddit, organized, and made prettier.
“Organized” is really the key part here. Take another look at the screenshots and you’ll see that the questions are different. That’s because Interviewly puts better questions earlier in the thread.
You can browse AMAs by subject, and if you save the page to Pocket or Instapaper you get a much better result – in Pocket the Reddit thread is so complex that the parser just gives up and shows you the original in a browser.
Looking for something to read? I mean other that great coverage of Mac and Apple-related gadgets and news? Then go check it out. You’ll probably find out more in one AMA that in a hundred official promo interviews.
