On the Reddit apps on Android and iOS, some users are reporting an irritating bug. The issue isn’t affecting all users, but if you like to enter long posts, then you’ve probably stumbled across it. The Reddit long text bug causes an obscured comment box, but thankfully, there is a workaround until a permanent fix is rolled out.

Reddit long text bug reported with obscured comment box

The Android and iOS apps for Reddit were originally rolled out in 2016, but before that, users had to turn to third-party choices such as Boost for Reddit or Relay for Reddit. Since the official app was released, it has been getting better and better over time with additions like dark mode and interactive post previews. Now there’s an update for the Android version of the Reddit app to fix the long text bug, but iOS users will still have to deal with the problem for the time being.

PiunikaWeb spotted the issue, which only occurs when entering a large amount of text. The Reddit long text bug causes the keyboard to cover part of the text box when users are writing longer posts. Thus, users who don’t write long posts may never have even noticed the problem. Both Android and iOS users were affected, according to posts about the problem. The issue occurs in version 3.39 of the app.
