Apollo is a beautiful Reddit client built for fast navigation with an incredibly powerful set of features. Thanks to features like the Jump Bar, fully customizable gestures, and a super-charged Media Viewer, browsing Reddit has never been this amazing.
It's created specifically with iOS design guidelines in mind, so it fits right at home on your device, and with input from thousands of Redditors helping sculpt and perfect it over several years before launching:
- Jump Bar, for super-fast hopping between subreddits
- Super-charged Media Viewer for an amazing experience viewing images, GIFs, videos, albums , and more from a variety of sources.
- Tabbed interface for easy navigating
- Incredibly powerful Markdown composer for writing comments and posts
- Full inline Imgur uploading, both images and albums
- Large or compact posts depending on your preference
- Dark mode (can be automatic)
- Fully customizable gestures
- Safari View Controller for browsing articles and links
- Inline previews of media in comments
- 3D Touch support
- Beautifully organized Inbox
- Filtering and blocking
- Face ID / Touch ID / Passcode lock
- Moderator features
- Tons of settings to tweak
- GIF scrubbing to go backward and forward in time
- Multiple accounts
- Powerful search
- Full Markdown rendering
- Unobtrusive Volume Indicator
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.
- Fix for crash with some YouTube URL parsing (sorry)
- Gesture sensitivity tweaks (last update I adjusted the gesture sensitivity to be less likely to happen accidentally, based on feedback I think I *over* corrected, so I met it in the middle now, let me know what you think).
Hope everyone had an awesome July 4th/Canada Day or any other fun holidays recently! I have an awesome update cooked up for you coming shortly. :)
Ratings and Reviews
Better than the official Reddit app.
Apollo is much easier to use than the normal Reddit app. This app provides an easy way to block keywords, users, and even entire subreddits; which is a wonderful addition, and doing so has made my Reddit experience significantly better. I enjoy that you aren’t able to see your recent viewing history on this app, as well. The swipe gestures are very useful, and make it faster and easier to generally browse, upvote, downvote, reply, etc. I also enjoy the all-black theme option as well. I do not receive random notifications like I have been from the official app as of lately, so that is yet another plus in my book. It’s also a super cool idea to allow users to change and personalize Apollo’s main icon on their home screen! Along with smaller options like easily changing text size, color theming the comments, and many others; Apollo seems to have fairly quickly and easily outdone the official Reddit app. I’m very excited to see what improvements and/or additions are to come in the future; and I even plan to donate to hopefully help contribute to, and progress, such a wonderful app.
One small problem as of recently
So I've been using this app essentially from when it was created and I have and still do absolutely love. I only use a fraction of all the features it has to offer and even still it is by far the best Reddit mobile experience I've seen.
However, for the past week or so there's been a reoccurring glitch that has been incredibly frustrating. I'm using an iPhone 7 running iOS 11.2.1 for the record. So this usually occurs after I've been using the app for at least 10-15 minutes continuously. I'll be a few dozen posts down through my home page or one specific subreddit and suddenly I'll lose the ability to click on posts. I can scroll through the subreddit, click on the thumbnail, vote, and even use haptic touch or whatever it's called. But I can't click in a way that brings me to the post's "page" and thus there's no way I can view more than the top couple comments. The problems seems to fix itself temporarily when I force close the app and come back, but then I lose my place in the subreddit or on my home page. It's a very annoying problem on an app that has otherwise worked perfectly.
Please fix soon, and my rating will go back up to 5 stars.
Getting dangerously close...
Just upgraded to 1.1.5 and as I was expecting some additional functionality, the update from 1.1.1 appears to be a step backwards. Running iOS 11.2.1 on an iPhone X, there are bugs explicitly mentioned in the change log which have been made worse, specifically the filtering from r/All (shows as filtered via button change but not added to filter list, nor able to manually enter a subreddit to the list). The four new icons have an error when applying (a popup actually comes up to contact the developer if I’m seeing the message, and the issue persists). There are just a few things missing which will allow me to delete Alien Blue once and for all. A gallery mode based on the current subreddit, and the ability to use gestures to filter subreddits from r/All are nearly the only things keeping me from permanently switching to Apollo. Also from a UI perspective, in compact mode, lines to break up posts are probably not necessary, as each post is identical in height, and merely an appropriate amount of white/black space between posts should suffice.
Keep up the great work!
