As well as much, much more and it's constantly evolving. If you have anything you'd specifically like to see, come to the ApolloApp subreddit and we'd love to hear it!

What’s New

Version 1.13.1

This update includes some absolutely amazing additions, featuring insane new notifications, brand new gorgeous, never-before-seen icons, and a big ol' group of awesome improvements and bug fixes across the board. Read on!

- Brand new, completely redesigned notification experience
- Introducing custom subreddit watchers. Incredibly powerful, you can now create filters and have Apollo watch for interesting content in your favorite subreddits, and get a notification as soon as a matching post exists. So you'll never again miss out on a fascinating discussion about your favorite character Mark in your favorite TV show subreddit, or about PS5 or Xbox sightings in your city's subreddit, or about the squirrels being posted in r/aww. It's so unbelievably handy.
- Trending subreddit posts. With a tap you can turn on trending post notifications for subreddits of your choosing, so when a post in your favorite subreddit does super well, Apollo will send you a little notification to brighten your day
- Remind Me In… tired of summoning "remind me bots" in comments? Apollo can now easily schedule a notification for a post you want an update on, so you can know to come back when OP posts the juicy update they promised
- Completely rebuilt inbox notifications (post replies, comment replies, messages, mentions)
- Probably the best set of icons ever added to Apollo. An absurdly talented crew of designers created some of Apollo's best icons for this update, and guess what, there's like literally 10 of them, ready to make your home screen shine
- A bunch of new custom notification sounds. You can even have A-P-O-L-L-O being typed on a mechanical keyboard as your notification sound!
- Added Video Deblurinator feature/setting which helps with videos not appearing blurry for the first few seconds
- Added option to hide media controls by default when opening media viewer
- Improved album/gallery loading speed
- On profiles can sort user comments and post by time period now
- Greatly improved efficiency with enormous images
- Added option to paste Reddit URL into Search tab search bar to open that link
- Fixed issue where users could be sorted incorrectly in subreddits list
- Option to share watchers via a URL
- Can long-press on Search tab to quickly go to the search bar
- Can long-press on Posts tab to quickly jump to the Jump Bar
- Tweaked Apollo logo for Safari extension
- Fixed bug where it looked like you could edit the text of what you were replying to
- Playback speed options for YouTube videos using API
- Fixed bug where sometimes titles weren’t selectable in Select Mode
- Added option to completely hide blocked users

- Improved some icons in comment composer
- Fixed weird animation when upvoting a comment with a Wikipedia link
- Fixed bug where custom gestures and Markdown tables could conflict
- Fixed bug where some table-heavy posts could crash (mostly in r/LeagueOfLegends)
- Keyboard opens faster when commenting
- Fixed bug with Face ID/Touch ID
- Fixed bug where the pulsing "live sort" icon for comments would stop animating
- Fixed bug with some Reddit shortlinks
- A ton of other small little improvements

This update was a ton of work, so I really hope you enjoy it. I also want to give a massive thank you to André Medeiros, a brilliant server engineer who was instrumental in building the backend server for this update.

If you're enjoying this update, it would mean the world to me if you could check out Apollo Ultra and all the new goodies inside it!

- Christian

Editors’ Notes

Apollo for Reddit is an excellent alternative to the official app, with stacks of useful features and tons of settings you can tweak for an even more personalized Reddit experience. Apollo has clearly been designed by someone who spends a lot of time on Reddit, because the app is full of things that’ll delight power users.

A reddit client that completely redefines the UI

I have been using Apollo ever since it came out. It is essentially the reddit mobile application, but more polished, and packed with frequently requested features. The UI is fantastic, clean, and easy to navigate, with development choices designed around making the application as light and fast as possible. The battery usage is ideal, and the performance rarely disappoints.

You can use the application for free without purchasing the full version, but not having the full version prevents you from submitting posts, and you miss out on features such as gif scrubbing (which has spoilt me in other applications which do not have this feature). The pro version is pretty cheap however, and you’ll easily make back your money spent after a couple of days of usage.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a new mobile client for reddit, and those wanting to move from desktop to mobile. 5/5.

Reddit as it should be

Apollo is probably the best way to navigate Reddit by apps. Far better than the Reddit app itself, and is arguably better than other 3rd party apps.

The free version offers huge functionality which is enough for browsing and generally enjoying Reddit.

The paid for version is affordable, and adds additional functionality for a better experience. There are a few items (such as submitting posts) which only come with the paid version, but this did not impact my experience and was a good reason for the paid app. The advertisement for the paid version is also minimally intrusive, which is wonderful and not in your face all the time like paid functions in the actual Reddit app.

The app is stable and runs well, and functions how you want it to (by the settings) rather than how someone else wants you to.

I don’t use the Ultra version, so I cannot comment.

I thoroughly recommend this, in the very least get the free version, then if you enjoy it please support the creator, a lot of work has been put into this app.
