Period." - iMore "Apollo makes the wild world of Reddit more accessible than ever before, and it may just be the best designed social feed app I've ever used." - MacStories "Apollo is the only Reddit app you need." - TechCrunch "Beautiful, modern, and fast." - Mac Rumors Apollo is a beautiful Reddit client built for fast navigation with an incredibly powerful set of features.

  • Opening links don’t work

    On iOS, clicking Imgur links results in a black screen. Opening YouTube links doesn’t launch the YouTube app. Please fix
  • Image zoom is broken

    I love Apollo, but one particular bug is really irritating. Double-tapping some large (tall and narrow, it seems) images to zoom causes the image to shift to the side instead of properly zooming. Please fix this!
  • App is a great but please implement a true black mode for dark mode

    For iPhone X it would be great to have the option of switching to an all black dark mode rather than dark gray. Check out twitterrific as an example
  • Best Reddit App

    Seriously the best Reddit app you can buy. Used to be stubborn and refused to switch, but I’m glad I finally did!
  • Broken!

  • Buggy

    Zooming in on photos causes the screen to go black, requiring me to then zoom out much further than I zoomed in. Links to imgur result in a black screen that shows nothing, have to open in safari to view. Sometimes comments just don't load necessitating a restart of the application. General lagging when I don't experience it in any other applications. Not the kind of performance I expect when I pay for an app. Guess I'm going back to antenna which has its own problems but they don't surface nearly as often.
  • Way better than the official app

    There are a lot of ways that the official Reddit app falls short and this app fixes all of these issues.
  • Best since Alien Blue

    Great app! I won’t bother repeating what everyone else has said. One fix I would like to see: If I have the Twitter app installed, I should be able to hit the browser button and go immediately to the app, not needing to be redirected to the tweet on safari, then needing to open the app from that screen.
  • better than reddit’s ios app!

    for reference: Apollo Version: 1.1.7 on iPhoneSE 11.2.2 found out about Apollo on techcrunch after getting fed up with reddit’s ios app on my iPhoneSE. my memory is a bit hazy on entire techcrunch article (look it up, shouldn’t be too hard to find) but i believe the Apollo developer used to be an apple intern and decided to make Apollo because other reddit apps were lacking when it comes to following apple’s design guidelines. the free version, for me, is a feature complete app without, i repeat, without ads! you can donate several different amounts to unlock some advanced options (just to name a few, automatic light/dark theme change or a different app icon, etc.) or just because you like the developers work (advanced options i believe are included in all “donations”). i’ve only used apollo on my iPhoneSE for an hour or so but thus far performs/looks like a native apple app 👍 side tangent & a not so quick rant on reddit’s own ios app... try scrolling up & down in that app and see how often you end up scrolling left & right. plus, they decided to insert “recommended communities” after every 6 subscribed subreddit submissions/posts on my “home” page with no means to turn it off. i have yet to see a “recommended community” i have any remote interest in. i put up with the janky scrolling for over a year but combine that with the spamming of “recommended communities” on my “home” page and, well, now i’m writing a 5 star review of Apollo! getting back to Apollo- for me, positives: +scrolling goes up & down +no “recommended communities” spamming on “Home” page +performance & UX/UI so far seems/feels like native apple app +no ads with free version +free version, for my needs, is feature complete for me, negatives: -not finding out about this app sooner 🙁 will definitely be donating sooner rather than later!
