narwhal is a fast, gesture-based application to browse all of reddit. All of these features were designed from the ground up specifically for iOS:
- View any and all subreddits
- A seamless experience to see a link and its comments at the same time
- Voting on posts and comments through a simple swipe
- Hide and save links to your reddit account
- Add new posts to your favorite subreddit
- View all of your orangereds
- What are you waiting for!? It’s free, go ahead and download!
- Adds "best" sort option to the front page. Hot will still be the default, but if you have "save sort per subreddit" on, your front page will remember your selection
- Detects reddit links in your clipboard and asks to open on launch
- Adjusts San Francisco font to better match the system
- Adds support for reddits new spoiler markdown syntax >! spoilers in here !<
- Attempts to fix bugs around authentication and having the wrong user signed in. Please let us know if you see any odd behavior
You may be wondering why updates have been sparse lately, and that is because we have been working on an all new version of narwhal!! We are re-designing and re-building narwhal from the ground up to be modern, more efficient, and better all around. We hope to have more to share on this front very soon!!!
Ratings and Reviews
So much customization!
Coming from iAlien (which I was very happy with) was kinda weird. The menu bar being on the right than the left was hard to get used to also. BUT as time went on the app gained more traction and more customization options kept being added. Things like what happens to a video or post when force touching (for force touch compatible devices) or what icon you prefer to use. Dark and light mode with a single tap! No going through settings to change the mode when viewing at night or day. The font you read can be changed. Literally almost everything can be changed to your liking. You can even hide certain menu options that you find yourself never using at all. Hopefully one day they add an option to switch the menu tab from the right to left lol.
Recently a new tab was added called recently viewed and my goodness I did not know how much I actually would use that tab. I always find posts I find interesting but forget to save it and wouldn’t be able to find it later. Now I just go to that tab and it’s there! It’s super useful.
Clearly the best Reddit client
I truly love this app and use it every day. The gestures and navigation are very easy to understand. The whole app is completely customizable to your browsing preferences. My favorite being the media viewer and the auto-play options. I like having videos play when I view the link (AND it’s great being able to read the comments while the video is playing. Something my 2nd Reddit client pick, Apollo, still lacks). I also wanted to thank the developer for finally making the search function stick to searching within the current subreddit instead of all of Reddit... it’s much better this way.
True black mode made this the go-to Reddit client
I was an Alienblue user when it was a good app. Then Reddit bought Alienblue just to destroy it and replace it with the official Reddit app which I only hear bad things about. Narwhal took the best of what users love about Alienblue and expanded upon it. The $4 to make this ad-free was more than worth it. The app is so good, the developers are selling t-shirts now due to demand. And now, with the update of true black mode, no more greyscale night mode; this things looks absurdly polished now. Just pick this up and never return to another Reddit client that leaves screen real estate to die on the sides or never go back to official Reddit nonsense.
