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!
Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Fantastic Reddit client for iPhone
From first use, this app is a joy to use. It integrates incredibly well with the rest of iOS. The default settings are mostly intuitive (especially for first time users) and for those places where the app doesn’t do what you expect, the available options are extensive.
What prompted me to write this review was actually a feature of the Ultra subscription (also available as a one time purchase). I’d put off purchasing Ultra for a while, as the biggest draw to me was the message/reply notifications but I still used Narwhal for that. I recently subscribed to support the developer, and got my first notification. It’s great, it feels like an iMessage notification with a quick reply sheet opening up so I can respond with the easy option to open the full app as well.
The one limitation I encounter with this app is the iPad interface. It is not as well thought out as the iPhone interface; it’s basically a scaled up version of the iPhone interface. But as an iPhone app, this is the best Reddit client I’ve used (I even prefer it over the old and new website on a “real” computer).
