Kik announced a fairly significant change in direction at the end of November, with the introduction of Kik Cards . Essentially, Cards are lightweight HTML5 applets that Kik users can employ to share content and play games with one another, directly within their Kik message stream. Today, the company revealed to TechCrunch that over 2 million of its 30 million total users had already used Cards within one week of the feature’s launch, and introduced an update to its apps which brings a mobile-optimized Reddit browsing experience to the messaging service. Kik’s Reddit card is actually a remarkable achievement in a number of ways: first, it manages to be a much more enjoyable way to browse Reddit on iOS or Android smartphones than Reddit’s own website, and second, it was built essentially over the course of a week by a single one of Kik’s native app developers working on his own.
