This update includes some absolutely amazing additions, featuring insane new notifications, brand new gorgeous, never-before-seen icons, and a big ol' group of awesome improvements and bug fixes across the board. Read on!
- Brand new, completely redesigned notification experience
- Introducing custom subreddit watchers. Incredibly powerful, you can now create filters and have Apollo watch for interesting content in your favorite subreddits, and get a notification as soon as a matching post exists. So you'll never again miss out on a fascinating discussion about your favorite character Mark in your favorite TV show subreddit, or about PS5 or Xbox sightings in your city's subreddit, or about the squirrels being posted in r/aww. It's so unbelievably handy.
- Trending subreddit posts. With a tap you can turn on trending post notifications for subreddits of your choosing, so when a post in your favorite subreddit does super well, Apollo will send you a little notification to brighten your day
- Remind Me In… tired of summoning "remind me bots" in comments? Apollo can now easily schedule a notification for a post you want an update on, so you can know to come back when OP posts the juicy update they promised
- Completely rebuilt inbox notifications (post replies, comment replies, messages, mentions)
- Probably the best set of icons ever added to Apollo. An absurdly talented crew of designers created some of Apollo's best icons for this update, and guess what, there's like literally 10 of them, ready to make your home screen shine
- A bunch of new custom notification sounds. You can even have A-P-O-L-L-O being typed on a mechanical keyboard as your notification sound!
- Added Video Deblurinator feature/setting which helps with videos not appearing blurry for the first few seconds
- Added option to hide media controls by default when opening media viewer
- Improved album/gallery loading speed
- On profiles can sort user comments and post by time period now
- Greatly improved efficiency with enormous images
- Added option to paste Reddit URL into Search tab search bar to open that link
- Fixed issue where users could be sorted incorrectly in subreddits list

- Can long-press on Search tab to quickly go to the search bar
- Can long-press on Posts tab to quickly jump to the Jump Bar

- Fixed bug where some table-heavy posts could crash (mostly in r/LeagueOfLegends)
- Keyboard opens faster when commenting
- Fixed bug with Face ID/Touch ID
- Fixed bug where the pulsing "live sort" icon for comments would stop animating
- Fixed bug with some Reddit shortlinks
- A ton of other small little improvements
This update was a ton of work, so I really hope you enjoy it. I also want to give a massive thank you to André Medeiros, a brilliant server engineer who was instrumental in building the backend server for this update.
If you're enjoying this update, it would mean the world to me if you could check out Apollo Ultra and all the new goodies inside it!
(1.13.1 fixes a few small bugs from 1.13)
This update improves an open in Apollo issue, as well as a few other small issues.
Here's an update with some handy bug fixes and improvements based on great feedback from the Christmas update. Read on!
+ A new, really cool icon from Yannick Lung. It's of the Apollo mascot in an old school scuba suit by the incredible Yannick Lung, and I love how the details really make it feel like an icon from a nostalgic era of time passed. Have been enjoying it a lot on the ol' home screen.
+ Improvements to table rendering. Thanks y'all for sending in some great examples of tables that (alongside Apollo's new inline table renderer) weren't quite displaying properly, so I've tidied those all up so they should display gorgeously now.
+ Also tweaked layout algorithm a bit so that some tables that were a bit cramped should display nicer now.
+ Fixed bug where the "Quote" option in "Select Text" mode and in the comment composer wouldn't show up.
+ Fixed bug where the subscriber count and number of currently active accounts wasn't showing up in the sidebar (and also added the short subreddit description to the top of it).
+ Fixed bug where some links wouldn't be tappable or only the subreddit/user part would be if it was a Reddit link.
+ Fixed a bug where tapping on some user or subreddit links could jump you into the browser/out of Apollo rather than staying in the app (same with Wikipedia links, fixed too).
+ Fixed bug where preview text (like for a text post in a subreddit, or underneath an Inbox item) was too dark, made it a bit lighter like before so as to blend in better
+ Fixed a bug with some escaped Markdown characters and those inside code blocks.
+ Fixed a bug around newlines/line breaks in Markdown.
+ Fixed a bug where sometimes you could get a duplicate notification.
+ Fixed bug where text in private messages could be visually hard to read due to low contrast.
+ If you tap on a link to u/me, it'll properly load your profile now.
+ Added option in Settings tab > General to share Reddit links as their "old.reddit" version.
+ Fixed bug where Apollo was mean to usernames with hyphens in them.
+ Fixed bug where when comments loaded self text could refresh/flash in a non-cool way.
+ Fixed bug where couldn't select the title of the post in "Select Text" mode.
+ If you tap on a timestamped YouTube video it will now open to that time.
+ Limits comment link previews to 5.
+ Fixed bug where subreddit rules could get cut off at the top slightly.
+ Flattened large groups of newlines in a comment/post into just two.
+ Fixed bug where code blocks could get cut off at the bottom.
+ Fixed bug where widgets would not show up on iOS 14.
+ A fix for a crash that could occur on iOS 12 devices. Really sorry about that one, strange bug that was but everything should be in tip top shape now. As a note, after this update (1.12.1) Apollo will likely require iOS 14 and higher for further updates. You'll still be able to run Apollo on iOS 12 and 13 just as you were before, but new updates will require iOS 14 and higher. Statistically very few Apollo users are still on these older versions (well under 1% of users) and the work to maintain these older versions and put off using nice, newer iOS features in full (SwiftUI, SceneDelegate, Combine, Swift Concurrency, etc.) is beginning to get a bit tough to maintain given the small userbase (and I'm just one person building this app), so I figure now's a good a time as for iOS 14 to become the base. Hope that's understandable.
Hope these first two weeks of 2022 have served you well, and if not, well I endeavour to make the rest happier through Apollo updates!
Merry Christmas!! Santa has arrived with a bug full of Apollo updates for you to enjoy! HO HO HO!
+ Added three awesome new icons! First, you've been visited by Santapollo, created by the perpetually ingenious Matthew Skiles and depicts our jolly Father Christmas as if he was the Apollo mascot. Second, we have Broby, a beautifully hand made depiction of our Apollo mascot made by u/burkybang’s 5 year old son. Yes three, icons!
+ New Markdown renderer using Apple's new efficient library. Loads comments even faster, and brings benefits like inline table rendering (finally!), syntax highlighted code blocks, better list rendering, and more!
+ Improved SidebarViewController to use the new renderer as well, so sidebars load richer with tables inline, links open in Apollo, etc.
+ Improved the viewing of random subreddits with r/random in Apollo. Now it loads even faster, and you can simply pull down to refresh and it'll load you a new subreddit each time, even remembering which sort you had set
+ If you long-press on a link the context menu will now have a quick Open in Browser option (thanks u/2-718!)
+ Added inline Wikipedia previews to comments, including a thumbnail and brief article preview, so you can get a gist of what the article is about without having to summon one of the wiki bots.
+ Added Dracula theme (thanks u/IsoPhoenix!)
+ Added Mint theme (thanks u/BobQuentok!)
+ Fixed bug where on some iPads in comments for a post with a GIF they would lag badly when scrolling, update iOS to make doubly sure though (thanks u/cats-lock!)
+ Fixed bug where some linked posts in Apollo would just try to load the Reddit homepage because they had weird symbols in their URLs (thanks u/BasementDweller3000!)
+ You can now zoom in further on images, even if low res (ENHANCE!)
+ Fixed issue where sometimes the media viewer could think you were zoomed in a hair and be hard to swipe to dismiss
+ If you compose a comment and type an author, it'll now offer to autocomplete the actual post's author as well.
+ You can now easily add subreddits to a specific multireddit directly from your list of subreddits
+ Polls are now properly accessible to VoiceOver
+ You can now scrub YouTube videos to go forward and backward in time easily if you have Apollo Pro
+ If Apollo shows a tweet and the user is verified, there will be a little checkmark icon now
+ Option to hide the subreddit when choosing Share as Image
+ Fixed bug where when Sharing as Image the comments could appear out of order
+ Removed legacy modmail option as Reddit no longer supports
+ Added accessibility labels to all app icons and themes, so now if you're curious what an app icon or theme looks like and are using VoiceOver, it will describe it to you
+ Fixed bug where YouTube player wouldn't work well with Low Power Mode
+ New Chumbus content
+ Command/Control-F style "Find in Comments" search now also searches the post's text as well if present
+ Fixed issue where if a gallery/album's first item liked to a YouTube video it would try to open that
+ Improved "Select Text Mode"
+ Fixed issue where sometimes albums could be hard to scroll between
+ Updated Gfycat API
+ Fixed a potential crash when running on Apple silicon Macs
+ Added a Doomscroll Defeater™ which if turned on will disable infinite scrolling and allow you to choose to load the next page each time (in Settings it's just called "Infinite Scrolling" on/off)
+ Properly matches Reddit's recent changes to collapsing blocked users
+ Improved comment composer preview
+ Mods can comment on locked posts now
+ Fixed a GIF download crash
+ If a comment is collapsed, the username and score is now untappable so you don't tap accidentally
+ Added a better indicator if you manage to reach the end of a subreddit's available posts
+ Crossposts now match the subreddit they're posted to's content settings
Hoping you all have the happiest of holidays, and I can't wait to show you what I have cooking for 2022. :)
Hey all! Been hard at work on a bunch of goodies this summer. In the meantime, here's a quality of life update that adds and fixes some nice things.
- New YouTube player! This update features a new YouTube player, since the old one could be a wee bit fragile at times, the new one is super-powerful, and uses the system video player so you'll feel right at home on iOS, and still with video-scrubbing capabilities like you know and love.
- Twitter functionality restored! There was a small bug a little while back around tweets showing inline in Apollo, so I took the time to rewrite the engine for Apollo's tweet previews, and that's now live in this version, so everything should work just lickety-split!
- New icon! There's a brand new Ultra icon by Alfrey Davilla, lovingly called Gorilla Gus. I hope you love Gorilla Gus as much as I do. He's a very kind-hearted gorilla.
- Known issues: there's a small bug around the new YouTube player and Low Power Mode being active, so it'll kick you off to the web browser while Low Power Mode is active. That will be fixed shortly!
Got some goodies coming your way soon, can't wait to share more in the next update! :)
- New icon by the ever brilliant Matthew Skiles, called Coconut Head. This declassified icon pays homage to the very warm start to the summer season many of us have experienced.
- Fixed random crash that could occur on launch for some users
- Fixed bug on Apple Silicon Mac version of Apollo where closing the media viewer could sometimes result in a crash
- Fixed bug on Apple Silicon Mac version of Apollo where pasting could sometimes cause the app to just spin indefinitely
- Fixed issue with videos bouncing you to Safari sometimes
- Fixed issue where GIFs could seem somewhat stuttery when scrolling, especially around their progress bar
- Fixed issue where home screen widgets would sometimes get a little annoyed when trying to refresh during poor network conditions
- Improved widget timing/reloading logic
- Fixed issue where some GIFs with audio would be weirdly quiet sometimes
- Fixed bug where GIF progress bar couldn't be hidden if you weren't a fan (how dare you)
- Fixed trending subreddits in Search tab not updating
- A few other little things to make everything a tad bit smoother
Been working on some cool stuff behind the scenes in between these quality of life releases, can't wait to show you more soon. :)
