New Update Brings Nothing But Bugs 1/5
The recent update has killed the app. Nothing but bugs. I can’t post without the app freezing. And my “Home” limits me to 17 posts with no way to scroll or get anything new.
Keeps crashing when I sort by top of all. Tried everything to reset phone and app is fully updated..
Fantastic app 5/5
This app makes browsing and interacting on reddit so easy and appealing to the eye. The creator responds to requests and adds new features that will work. All around amazing app! Can’t say enough about it!
Simply an excellent app. 5/5
By David Basco
I tried the normal reddit app, and for whatever reason it was working out for my phone, I tried Apollo out and wow, what a difference it was.
Wonderful app and amazingly responsive dev 5/5
This app does everything I need it to do and more. One thing I really want to point out, however, is that on the rare occasions troubles arise, once the dev is made aware he is ON IT. I hate seeing negative reviews on here when Christian is the most approachable and responsive developer I've ever encountered, and takes his responsibilities to his users very seriously. A trip to Apollo's subreddit will show the truth of that. I can't recommend this app enough.
Best designed Reddit app! 6 Star App!!! 5/5
I love the Markdown support and Darker theme mode. Customization is nice. Pure Black Dark Mode is an awesome dark theme! I also love the dark Safari View Controller mode and open in Reader mode feature. This has easily become a daily used app.
I recommend getting the new Ultra version which includes new icons and notifications. The app has so many customization features and frankly the new developer beep notification is too cool to pass up. Would give this 6 stars if I could. This is maybe the best representation of what an iOS app should be like!
Great work 5/5
Amazing App for Reddit browsing. Only problem I run into is when viewing a gif in portrait and switch to landscape my XS Max screen goes black and I lose my place in scrolling.
Excellent interface! 5/5
This app is by far the best reddit viewer. The 2.99 fee for pro isn’t that much, and ultra is pretty cheap. Thanks for the awesome app!
Use a different app 1/5

Cash grap 1/5
The fact that I cannot make a new post on a subreddit is such a cash grab. I used to have alien blue on my phone for this reason but with the 10s alien blue doesn’t work anymore. I’m half tempted to delete this app and use narwhal or the official reddit app. I know you need to make money but NEVER strip basic features from users.
This version freezes 3/5
I have to force quit the app once or twice a day. Spectacular app aside from that. iPhone X iOS 12.1 Apollo ver 1.4
Amazing app for Reddit 5/5
There’s many alternatives to get to Reddit, but Apollo is the greatest one. It simple, sleek, and modern looks-wise, with light and dark modes. Everything is easy to look at and the gestures make navigating easy. Gifs and videos work great on the app and the browser is simple and non-intrusive. Best of yet, no ads. I’ve never given an app a review before but I really have to do it for this one after 2 years of using it.
Pay to post 1/5
Really enjoyed the app but the pay to make a post makes the app really a letdown.
Best Reddit Client for iPhone 5/5
Very active development and in its current state it's still the best Reddit client by a long shot. /R/ApolloApp is a great place to communicate with the dev and overall I'm surprised how much happier I am using this app over the official Reddit client.
Forced to switch and glad I did 5/5
I recently upgraded my phone to an iPhone XR on the newest update to iOS and had to find an alternative to Alien Blue. Read great things about this app so I figured I would try it out. The interface is familiar and intuitive. The controls are simple but also easy to modify. The only negative was having to pay to be able to submit posts and comments, but honestly, after using the app for a while, I’m super happy to support the dev.
Also, at first I had an issue where I was unable to submit posts or comments or even upvote even after upgrading to Pro. I submitted a ticket via the “contact us” button in the app and received a reply the same day asking for additional info to solve the problem. Turns out, the problem had nothing to do with the app, just my account. Now I have zero issues and am happy to continue using it.
Lots of crashes 3/5
I paid for Apollo Pro to have the ability to make posts on the app instead of going back to Alien Blue. The only problem is that every single time I do make a post the app freezes. It’s not that much of a big deal, but I have to force close the app every time and it’s just annoying. I have experienced other crashes randomly, and just now I was trying to look at my saved posts and every. single. time. I scrolled down, the app crashed. Personally, I think this is the best alternative to Alien Blue on the app store, but it seems much less stable than when I first got it. I appreciate all of the features that are available, but it’s hard to appreciate with regular crashes.
Just today it crashed several times one after the other. iOS 12.1 iPhone 8+ just browsing too
My favorite reddit app 4/5
My favorite reddit app, but I'm docking one point. Reason being the “parent comment” functionality not working which is important for my browsing experience.
Also not being able to see sent messages makes it hard for me to carry multiple conversations.
Where is the pro version that I’ve already paid for? 1/5
This seems sketchy now.
Awesome app! But ewww subscriptions and posting needs a separate pro... 4/5
Themes need a subscription tho ;(
I hate subscriptions tho. This is very common on iOS sadly. There is a ton of free reddit apps with lots of features on android.
Posting needs Apollo Pro which is a huge bummer and making me go back to the official reddit app.
Also subscriptions are terrible! Notifications require a subscription too sadly.
So there’s one less star!
I’d be okay with themes and cool icons being on a pro version but posting stuff is a basic function and there’s no reason for it to be pro.
Fantastic app. 5/5
Was using the official client since it came out. I can’t believe I didn’t switch sooner. The intuitive gestures and UI design are great. I rarely purchase apps but I think this is definitely worth upgrading to pro and supporting the developer.
Best Reddit app ever! 5/5
Seriously. This is the best reddit reader available.
The developer regularly updates with bug fixes, new features, and ease of use updates. Not only that, but the developer responds to the user base via the Reddit sub about bugs or suggested improvements.
Finally, there are customization options built into the app itself...you can change the app theme (overall color) as well as the icon itself (choose from over 20 different icons), among other things.
If you’re a reddit user, get this app. It is, hands down, the BEST reddit reader to date.
You have to pay to post 3/5
By Not Steve stevenson
Requiring users to pay for a subscription to post on a free-to-use forum that normally lets everybody post for free is wack. I get you have to get revenue to maintain the app but there's got to be better things to put behind a paywall that aren't the basic functions of Reddit
Current version freezes often 3/5
On iPhone X ios 12 and the recent update has this app constantly freezing even when just scrolling through feeds. Paid for this and now they want a monthly subscription for Ultra or whatever its called. Ill continue to support once they actually fix it
Landscape to panel 4/5
Best out only problem I have is when scrolling Dow, open an article/video, watch in landscape...when I go back to the list I’m in d different place. Most of the time I just give up close and go to some other time wasting mind numbing activity...Twitter
Finally found my Alien Blue replacement 5/5
By Boomer D
The official Reddit app is garbage, and this app is close enough to the Alien Blue experience that I gladly donated cash for the pro version.
Best Reddit Client for iOS 5/5
Apollo Ultra is by far the best Reddit client available for iOS and possibly for mobile in general.
App freezes every time I submit a post 1/5
By Charlie Burnett
The app freezes every time I submit s post on both my iPhone X and iPad Pro
This is a core feature for any reddit app. Please fix it
Love the app, except for recent issues 3/5
Recently, when I use the app for too long or on a subreddit that has a lot of gifs, Apollo causes my phone X to get laggy and slow down, and eventually become unresponsive, until the app crashes. Not sure if this is a known bug or something specific to my device? Otherwise I absolutely love the app
Far better than the regular reddit app! 5/5
Look just try it. You’ll like it way more, it has an active developer and a bunch of features that you won’t find on the native app. Also the developer is Canadian. And Canadians are always nice people. This is THE app if you have an iPhone. Trust me. Gif scrubbing and gifs load faster, cool themes and app icons are interchangeable is by far the coolest part.
It’s way better than anything else, and since the developer is one guy you don’t get ads.
Needs to remember where I was 3/5
This would be a 5 star app if it didn't forget where I was every time I close the app. The reddit app, as bad as it Is, at least remembers the last place I was reading. Fix that and this becomes the best reddit app hands down.
Best reddit app, best dev! 5/5
Apollo simply can’t be beat when selecting the best reddit app for iOS. It’s intuitive design, highly customizable features and general ease of use makes browsing a fluid experience.
The dev is very open, responsive and engaged with the community on the Apollo subreddit. Rarely will an issue go unresolved for more than one update.
I was happy to purchase the ‘pro’ version for a few extra features; this app is definitely worth the couple bucks!
Very good balance and excellent gestures and short cuts 4/5
By Review 161
Overall, best iOS Reddit app I have tried. Two suggestions: make the post button toggle between home and subreddits. This will reduce the need to reach to the top of the screen to get back to home posts. The second suggestion is darken the line separating the post to make it easy to follow the posts.
I regret buying every single day 1/5
This app is an irredeemable piece of trash I regret paying for every single time I use it. I feel like each time I use it, I find new UI bugs. Just today, I realized that if you paste a link in the I out filed BEFORE typing a title, it won’t let you type the title. It’s really pathetic and this app needs to stop pretending it is a polished experience because it is clear this guy is doing nothing but the bare minimum so he can take your money.
Love it 5/5
My only wish is to be able to filter unlimited subs from r/All
Latest version - crash crash crash 5/5
By Jim from Omaha
On startup, if I don’t navigate to a subreddit within about 500ms the app crashes.
Things have been great until this release.
Great App 5/5
By Cookie Valverde
I’ve been a Reddit user for quite some time now.
This is by far the best client I’ve used, and also extremely satisfied with the way Christian lets his users know what the updates will include.
Thank you for your hard work, Christian!
Awesome awesome reddit client.
Issues when switching portrait to landscape 4/5
Switching from portrait to landscape when watching a GIF will cause distortion and zoom into the GIF for some reason. Then when you back out you lose your place in the posts.
After Alien Blue I really wasn't sure what to do. Didn't love a few things on the official app. Tried Apollo recently and just love it. Definitely the spiritual and functional follow up to Alien Blue.
Only app that suited my needs 5/5
I’ve used reddit solely on the official app, but couldn’t handle the many bugs that came with it. After trying several independent apps, I couldn’t find one that had the same feel without the bugs. Then I found this one. Lovely app
Over rated 1/5
Everyone acts like the developer is a god and they act like this app is literally perfect. The whole thing is overhyped, by a lot.
The app itself has just about as many bugs as the official Reddit app. I constantly have issues with the app not sending my post to Reddit because my account is new. I’ve gotten this error on both a 2 year account with 100k karma, and a 1.4 year account with about 50k karma. I tried reaching out to the developer about this, but he only blamed it on Reddit and ignored me, even though I wasn’t having the issue on the official Reddit app or on Reddit’s website. He has since ignored me and continues to neglect the problem.
There’s also an issue with posting and commenting. 100% of the time, the app freezes when you post or comment, and only 10% of the time the app unfreezes, the other 90% of the time you have to close the app to make it respond again and you lose your place.
The developer also recently introduced a subscription based thing for “server upkeep” or something but idk what kind of servers he needs because he’s not hosting Reddit.com or anything. He didn’t explain so we’ll never know.
The developer himself also will not communicate with you. He has a subreddit for his app where he kinda communicates with you, but he’s always very brief and he is NOT open for criticism because everyone has hyped him up, like I said before, to feel like a god and now he thinks his app is perfect.
Don’t buy this app. The only thing it has on the official Reddit app is there’s no ads. But the rest of the app is AIDS.
So good 5/5
Best reddit client 5/5
Hands down the best reddit client. Super intuitive to use and worth buying the premium version.
best reddit client ever. 5/5
probably the only app that I evangelize on a regular basis. if you reddit on mobile, this is far and away the best client for it, period.
Took away features I paid for 1/5
I paid to change the app color with original purchase. Now it's a monthly fee. Taking away PAID features is A BAIT AND SWITCH!
Sugar coated t*rd 2/5
Beautiful when it works, which is only 20% of the time. Buckles and spins via VPN and is worthless. All other apps work fine. Not worthy of its name.
Gif support getting worse 3/5
By Lava dine
Ok so gifs work again but albums are now broken.
Every update makes gif fail to load more and more
