Apollo is an unofficial app, and side effects may include an incredible browsing experience.
As the winter season draws to a close it's time to harvest our winter crops, turning some annoying bugs into some delightful tweaks and features as a result. \o/
I'm pullin' a big turnip out of the ground, and this turnip's name is Apollo 1.10.8. That's one juicy turnip right there. Inside the turnip is delicious, flavorful changelog:
- It's not an Apollo update without some custom new home screen icons. :) This update we have three new ones, the first two being Apollo Ultra monthly icons for last month and this month. The first is a gorgeous icon by Gleptech called 'Sasageyo', picturing a cute (potentially monstrous?) depiction of our friend peering out. The second is a terrific, sleuthy detective version of Apollo by Matthew Skiles, and lastly we have an awesome community icon pack icon called 'Floaty Boy', showing a very cute and minimally metallic floating rendition of the icon!
- 'New User Highlightenator' is a new feature suggested by users to help spot potential misinformation or suspicious users by optionally highlighting new accounts that are less than one month old (it adds a little icon with their age by the comment or post). The vast majority of Reddit newcomers are awesome, but sometimes users create a bunch of new accounts to try to brigade a subreddit with a silly opinion, and it's nice to be able to instantly see, "Hey, this account is 4 hours old and came right to this subreddit saying some silly things. Little suspicious, you are" rather than having to look up each account manually. Let Apollo do the heavy lifting!
- If you're linked to a specific comment (direct link or by tapping on your inbox, for instance) and that linked comment has parent comments above it, you can now long-press any of the parent comments to view any additional replies to those parent comments in addition to your own
- When signing in Apollo will now alert you if your thumbnails are disabled (sometimes this Reddit setting gets disabled for one reason or another, and it can cause the posts feed to look a little blank)
- If a comment is in a foreign language from what your iOS device is set to, when long-pressing the option to translate that comment will now be at the top
- Rewrote some areas of Apollo's home screen widgets to fix some bugs and make things faster so now they should run smoother for everyone
- If a subreddit can't be accessed it'll now state the reason (private subreddit, etc.)
- Fixed bug where when tapping "load more comments" could duplicate infinitely
- When saving images/GIFs/videos Apollo now uses the title of the post (if available) as the file name
- Fixed an issue where VoiceOver wouldn't read the account username if 'Always Show Usernames' was enabled
- Identified a bug where for some users Apollo could take up more storage space than intended, if you find this to be the case just go to Apollo > Settings tab > General > Clear Cache and it will walk you through tidying things up nicely
- Fixed bug where an error could occur when trying to gift an award
- Improved detection for when a thread of comments has been deleted by a moderator, will now auto-collapse properly and label it
- Improved detection for 'Auto-Collapse Auto Moderator Stickies' setting for subreddits that have a big ol' wall of text stickied to every thread
- Fixed bug where lists with multiple levels of indentation wouldn't show further indentation after first level
- Fixed bug where scrolling when composing a crosspost could get messed up
- Fixed bug where trying to open an image or GIF in Safari could cause a crash
- Fixed bug where when dragging your finger sometimes Apollo would tap to collapse
- Added some new 'text faces' to Apollo's comment/post composer
- Performance improvements in general, should have smaller memory footprint overall
Oops, ran out of text. For the full changelog see the r/ApolloApp subreddit!
Thanks as always for the support everyone, I'll continue to work hard to make Apollo even greater!

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.
Much better than native Reddit app
I don’t usually write reviews but feel inclined to do so for this app because it’s vastly improved my Reddit browsing experience, so much show I upgraded to the Pro version so I didn’t have to use the native app at all.
Great not to have any ads, much easier to use in general, but by far the best feature is being able to block keywords or particular subreddits so when I’m browsing popular I can at least semi-tailor what I see to be relevant.
Would be nice if it remembered recently visited subs or if the search function was improved - I visit a few subs fairly regularly that I don’t actually subscribe to and would prefer if these were remembered so I didn’t have to type them into the search bar to find them each time.
