Best reddit app I’ve found.

I’m not one to leave a review typically, but this app is my most used by far and it deserves praise. The most used functions of reddit such as browsing and sorting through posts and comments are nicely designed and intuitive to navigate on both my iPhone and iPad. Though there are a multitude of options in menus and sub menus that I personally found confusing at times, there is no doubt you can make the app as simple or complex as you’d like. Signing into my reddit account was easy and has me replying to comment threads or scrolling through my favorite subs in no time. The developers constantly make minor tweaks and subtle improvements that keep the app running smooth as silk. My only gripe is going through my comment history and not being able to pull up the original post from my comment alone, but rather I would have to select the OP’s profile and scroll through to the post to open it. A minor inconvenience that I don’t feel warrants a less than 5-star review from me. Overall, if you’re looking for a great reddit browser for your iPhone or iPad, look no further than Narwhal.

Never mind, overhearing back

07 Aug 2022 - Overheating is back again, was just using the app for about 30 minutes and felt it through my case. I use an Apple silicone case so it isn’t very thick. Hot to the touch after taking the case off. Previous update and original review follows: Overheating issues were fixed. Developer commented that it was due to bad banner ads. I still have the other issues so not 5 stars but still the best experience I’ve found as most other unofficial Reddit apps that would measure up require you to buy the app to post or sign in with an account. Not giving those apps the time of day. Original review below for posterity: As of writing this (24 July 2022), the app is causing my phone to overheat. This started within the last 1-2 weeks. I have an iPhone 11 Pro Max that’s up to date on the latest public iOS 15.6 (no beta channel). Sometimes it takes about 7-10 minutes, other times it’s noticeable within just a few minutes. App is also up to date. Not sure what’s causing the issue. Going to check out other apps because I’ve had assorted smaller issues (GIFs playing slower than they should be, accidentally triggering gestures while scrolling). It’s not every iPhone that these issues happen to as my roommate uses the same app on an iPhone 12 and doesn’t have the overheating or GIF issue.

Still good

I used this a few years ago but stopped because the video player had a lot of issues and I think some other things. It runs much smoother and better now. The only problem I have is with the “hide all”/“hide read”/“mark all as read”. If you hide everything with or w/o marking as read, and refresh, everything you just hid is now unbidden. So hours of scrolling through things and then hiding all of that simply so it doesn’t show up yet again, only for *all* of it to show up again. It happens if you leave the app for awhile and come back as well.

Thank you thank you THANK YOU for giving the ability to filter subs. I get so sick of seeing the exact same ones over and over on r/all and ones that I have no understanding of (like fandoms I’m not a part of).

EDIT**** now I remember why I deleted Narwhal. The “hide all” feature doesn’t work either as intended or as expected. It’s *so* frustrating when 100s of posts you specifically didn’t want to see again show up AGAIN AND AGAIN. I don’t mean to be harsh, it’s a great app. It’s just that one thing that ruins it for me.
