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!
Apollo is an unofficial app, and side effects may include an incredible browsing experience.
Massive update ahead! iOS 14 features like Widgets, Picture in Picture Video, new Photo Picker, plus tons of other stuff like crossposting, flair improvements, translation features, and so much more! Read on!
Apollo now includes a bunch of awesome, customizable iOS 14 home screen widgets to show posts, shortcuts, and more! To add, simply long-press on the home screen, tap the + in the top corner, and select Apollo!
# Picture in Picture Video
Apollo now lets you enjoy Picture in Picture video so you can continue watching video from Apollo when you're doing other things!
Crossposting (taking an existing post and reposting it to a similar subreddit) has been a big part of Reddit for ages, but recently it became a full-fledged feature where you can see exactly which subreddit it came from, and quickly jump to the original post. Apollo now supports this fully! You can perform crossposts too!
# Image Flair
Flair is a little “tag” users can add to their usernames in subreddit, and some subreddits even allow small images/icons to be added in addition to text, like the icon for your favorite sports team, or a character from your favorite TV show. Apollo now shows these beautifully!
# Setting Your Flair
In addition to being able to view the flair as discussed in the previous item, you can now set your own flair! Simply go to the subreddit of your choosing, and you can choose from a list of customizable flairs!
# View Long Flair
Some users set loooong flair, and as a result it can get off, which can be annoying when you’re trying to figure out what it says. Well be annoyed no longer, for you can tap on the long flair to bring up a window that expands it fully!
# Find Posts with Same Flair
If the subreddit lets users tag their posts with individual flairs, you can now simply tap on that flair and Apollo will show you all the other posts in the subreddit that have been tagged with that same flair.
# 5 (Yeah, Five!) New App Icons!
The first three are Ultra icons, all made by the same incredibly talented designer, Matthew Skiles, who I’ve been a fan of for a long time. Next up, we have a beautiful new Apollo icon representing the trans pride flag (originally created by Monica Helms), which came out really awesome and is a great addition. And last but not least, our incredible community designer, FutureIncident, created the Japanese-inspired Apollo-san icon!
# Easy Language Translation
Reddit is home to a diverse set of communities, but sometimes it’s tricky to understand what’s being said if the conversation is in a language you’re not familiar with. Now Apollo will be able to detect if the language of a comment or post is different than the language of your iOS device, and if so, offer to quickly translate it so you can understand the conversation!
# Fast Subreddit Selector
Whethering you’re trying to add a single subreddit to a filter, or adding multiple subreddits at a time to a multireddit, Apollo is now even faster at doing these tasks, with an auto-completing window that makes it super fast to search and add subreddits.
# Total Collapsed Comments & Remembering Collapsed Comments
Two handy new additions to collapsing comments in Apollo. The first, Apollo will show you at a glance how many comments are in the collapsed conversation. The second thing, if you collapse a bunch of comments, and then come back to that same comment section later, Apollo will now remember which comments you had collapsed, and keep them collapsed for you!
# And So Much More!
Tweaks, bug fixes, and more! For even more details, check out the in-app changelog!
# Thank You!
I’ll sound like a YouTuber for a second, but if you're enjoying these really thorough changelogs (they take a lot of time to put together!) as well as all the awesome new additions I worked on, leaving a tip of literally any size inside the app helps me so much, as it’s just me building Apollo!

Best app ever?
Seriously this is the best app I’ve ever used. Sleek, responsive, super easy to use, destroys the competition and best of all its freeeeee. And the pro version of the app is 100% worth it unless you don’t reddit on mobile that often and even then I think it’s hella worth. Now I use my mobile to surf reddit instead of my desktop lol.
Just a few notes I wanted to leave for the dev. Just nip pick stuff nothing serious. 1.) Is there anyway you could make the upvote and downvote buttons slightly bigger..? I find myself fat fingering and opening things that are already right in front of me. 2.) I had trouble tipping to upgrade to pro when I tried. Idk if it’s on your end or stupid Apple Pay crap but when I would click the tips it would just forever lag. I tried multiple times and after several attempts today I finally got it to go through. Just figured it was worth checking into Incase it’s happening to others too. 3.) The only thing missing in the comment selector(three lil dots) is a block the user option. That’s the only problem I’ve had with this app really and I’d really like to see that added at some point.
Thanks for all your hard work and great job on a fantastic app. Who knows maybe reddit will wise and make Apollo the official reddit app and stop trying to compete with real deal 🤟
Absolutely Stellar App, Developer is 🔥
Apollo is by far the most-used app on my phone (and now I have the ScreenTime reports to prove it). It is orders of magnitude better than the “official” reddit app and is superior in every way. It is fast and smooth and packed with features. I especially love that I can pick the theme I want, change the icon, and remove ads! The thing I hated most about the official app was the ads that were disguised as legitimate posts and with Apollo that’s all gone!
I bought the Pro upgrade months ago to gain access to additional features and it was one of the few in-app purchases I have never regretted or felt like wasn’t worth the cost. Today the developer released an update adding a bunch of new features that require a very reasonable (seems underpriced to be honest) monthly subscription, and like a true bro he has the option to unlock it for life with a onetime purchase! I hate monthly and even yearly subscriptions so I especially appreciated this option.
All that by itself should convince you that this app is worth it, but the thing that really seals the deal is the developer. He is amazing. Super active with feedback and very open in his communication about the status of the app’s development and requested features.
Best reddit app
I first got Apollo because of r/iossettups, which almost unanimously said that Apollo is the best reddit app. I went out on a limb and downloaded it, and at first I thought it was trash. However, I tried to give it a chance, and after about two weeks I couldn’t go back to the default app. I don’t usually buy apps, but I decided to make an exception and used one of my gift cards to try Apollo pro. And oh my god, it was an amazing decision. I felt like I had achieved enlightenment, that I had found the one true reddit app. But I wasn’t done yet. I wasn’t in to subscriptions, but this was right around the time I helped start up r/simfascism, and I felt like I really needed notifications. So, I whipped out my gift cards, and ten minutes later, I had purchased Apollo ultra lifetime. It was beautiful, it felt like I was gazing upon a god. Then I stopped using reddit for a while, but once r/nosleep popped up on my radar, I came back. At this current moment I use Apollo mainly to browse text based subreddits, and have become a lurker. However, I must say that Apollo looks and feels like the most well integrated iOS app I’ve seen. Honestly, I could mistake its design for that of a default iOS app. It is worth the money, and y’all should get it.
