I was a non-believer
I sat by while everyone was raving about this app. How could this app come anywhere close to Narwhal - I said. I refused to give another app a try because I have been burned before with apps that over-promise and fail to deliver. So you can believe me when I say that I am now kicking myself for not trying this app sooner. The amount of customization is unreal. Initially I wasn’t too excited about the card view - you can change it to compact. I didn’t like having the upvote buttons in compact view because I use the gestures - you can remove them. I didn’t like the white background - you can turn on TRUE dark mode (looks amazing on the iPhone X). I would rather swipe to upvote and downvote on the right side instead of the left (to avoid accidentally going back a page) - you can customize every single friken swipe gesture for different areas of the app! I also thought that the bottom bar and top UI bar took up too much screen real estate - YOU CAN HIDE THEM WHILE SCROLLING. The icons you can select from are beautiful, the ability to quickly switch between favorite subreddits at the top... I could seriously go on... Don’t be like me. Download this app now and play around. You won’t regret it.
Beautiful App, but requires payment to post
I was really feeling this app (an AMAZING amount of customization options are available to optimize your viewing, as well as night mode and even icon customization [the last of which you do need to pay for]) right up until I was told it was p2p (pay-to-post).
Look, I get it. You need revenue to avoid filling this thing up with ads, because excessive ads can/will drive away users. And I totally understood the paid cosmetic customization decisions. But having posting behind a paywall was a huge no go for me. That’s literally what Reddit is, a giant *free to use* Internet forum for sharing ideas. You don’t have to buy Reddit gold to post (and though obviously those donors who do buy Reddit gold help keep it running, the average user is not required to donate), and if I don’t need to pay to use Reddit, I’m sure as heck not going to pay to use Reddit through a third party app.
For me, that was the big deal breaker. Otherwise, I think it’s a beautiful app and seemed very nicely done (I honestly really did enjoy the 15 minutes of browsing I did with it, there are some amazing features), but I’ll be sticking with the official Reddit app for now.
Easily the best reddit app
Apollo is easily the best reddit app available for the iPhone, not only because of how full-featured it is but also because of its reliability (an issue with some other reddit clients I’ve tried).
My one complaint for most users is not that relevant to them, but it’s relevant enough to my situation that it is worth mentioning: 4” iPhone optimization could be a little bit better. (Models of iPhones with these screen sizes include the 5, 5s, 5c, and most importantly these days the SE). When I navigate to a subreddit the only immediately-available options for me in the navigation bar are a go back option, a change subreddit option, and a sort-by option. The rest of my options are hidden under an other button. While understandable, it can be somewhat annoying as the ability to customize this navigation bar to have smaller buttons so I can immediately access a submission button would be a welcome option. (Adding a compact mode for navigation would also suffice).
But really, that’s a minor complaint that mostly only effects me. Get Apollo and delete your other reddit client.
