Apollo was a powerful and customizable Reddit app for iOS
Apollo was an iOS app for browsing Reddit from 2015 to 2023. In 2023 Reddit announced significant price changes to their API, going from free to potentially costing tens of millions of dollars per year, with 30 days notice before developers would start incurring charges. As a result, Apollo was forced to shut down after the better part of a decade building for an incredible, supportive community. With over 100,000 five star ratings, and many accolades, I was incredibly proud of what Apollo accomplished.
The app now exists in a commemorative/historic state, with a thank you message, the option to unlock a Goodbye Apollo wallpaper pack, and options to export data if you had the app downloaded previously (shake the device), and all previous app icons are now automatically unlocked. You can also use the app as a hub to get updates about other things the developer (Christian Selig) is working on.
Again, thank you so much for all the years of fun, it was the honor of a lifetime building the app for all of you!

Ratings and Reviews
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.
Ultimate reddit experience.
I am a reddit user for 5+ years and Apollo user for 1 year, i was completely comfortable with the reddit app but when I made the switch I realised how many amazing features this app provides, features that in the back of mind I needed whenever I was using the reddit app. Features like smart-rotate to prevent the screen from rotating when scrolling lying down, subreddit specific sorting features etc etc. the list is endless and the fact that it is available to start with free to try and experience is just amazing considering how difficult it must be for an independent developer to support the free tier. And with the new ultra subscription plans, it is super affordable to switch to all the amazing features this app provides. An absolute essential for any reddit user.
I will miss this app dearly. Thank you Christian :)
I never was into reddit before I discovered Apollo. With it’s amazing iOS oriented design and UX, Apollo was the perfect app made for reddit. The feature set was great and it made browsing reddit a smooth experience.
I always loved when they added custom community icons and even bought Apollo Ultra for Lifetime to support the app. Been a great journey while it lasted; same with reddit. Now I’ll rarely use reddit, considering Apollo was what made it great to browse with.
Thank you Christian and everyone behind this app. I look forward to see what Christian creates next :D
