Apollo is an unofficial app, and side effects may include an incredible browsing experience.
Hey all! I've been hard at work on this update that includes some awesome tweaks and additions, as well as a bunch of bug fixes to some areas you have messaged me about that have been a teensy bit annoying. Read on!
- Two new awesome icons! Getting everything together for this update took a bit of time, so we have two Apollo Ultra icons in one this release: the icons for November AND December. The November icon is an absolutely gorgeous, very happy and cute icon from the incredible Raphael Lopes, I just love how this came out and it makes me smile. For December, something festive is in order, so we have a very tasty gingerbread man rendition (named George) of the Apollo icon by the awesomely talented Qi Sandor (who did the Christmas icon two years ago as well) that will spruce your home screen up for the holiday season and whatever you celebrate
- Fixed some issues around videos loading improperly or slowly
- Fixed bug where audio wouldn’t come unmuted sometimes, leaving you awkwardly alone with your thoughts
- Some fixes around some widget bugs that could occur where the widgets might not load, or potentially show old content. If you run into any further bugs, should me an email with details and include your logs by going to Settings tab > About > Logs
- Fixed bug with hiding r/All, r/Popular, etc. and added confirmation/explanation dialog
- On the screen with your list of subreddits the stars and collapse buttons are now spaced further from the right
- Fixed bug where reading a message sometimes wouldn't mark it as read
- Fixed bug where “Save to ‘Apollo’ Photo Album” option in Settings > General wasn’t working
- The video/GIF progress bars now only show if the content is more than a few seconds long
- Fixed bug where posts could show up as having an error when they really didn’t
- Fixed bug where crossposted albums weren’t swipable
- Fixed bug where user comments on their profile could repeat infinitely
- Fixed bug where sometimes GIFs would just save as images
- Fixed bug where subreddit icons wouldn’t show in crossposts
- Fixed bug where custom moderator removal reasons wouldn’t stick
- Fixed bug where the “successfully posted” banner wouldn’t show up
- Added option to disable tap to collapse on just comment headers
- Should look a little sharper on new iOS devices
- Fixed bug where keyboard could disappear after first key typed in Search tab
- Added some more bugs for me to find in the future

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.
The best Reddit app there is, no doubt about it.
Apollo is simply perfect, and you don’t really realize how many features you wanted in a Reddit app until you use Apollo. I used RiF for years and thought I really liked it, and when I made the switch to iOS about a year ago I was annoyed that I had to give it up. I tried 3 different apps on iOS before finally giving Apollo a shot, and that was that. It’s heaven compared to all of its competitors.
Swipe to upvote/downvote/save/reply along with haptic feedback is so convenient to use that I find myself engaging in comments far more than I did previously (there’s something so satisfying about that little “bzzt”). The ability to map your own gestures for different actions within the app is awesome too. On top of all that, it’s just a beautiful, sleek looking app that was clearly designed by someone who knows their stuff when it comes to UX.
Apollo also has its own subreddit, and Christian the sole developer is very active in it and is constantly adding features requested there. He’s a solid dude. Do yourself a favor and try it even if you think you love your current app. I can promise that you won’t regret it.
