  • Should open YouTube app

    By Jsjdjdksksks
    Can you please add an extension that opens YouTube and other streaming videos separately? Youtube videos haven't worked once since I have downloaded the app. I came from Android and had reddit is fun. It is a far superior app in so many aspects. It saves all subreddits you have visited so you don't have to remember that obscure sub you found that was awesome. And when you climbed a YouTube link it opened the YouTube app and actually loaded. If reddit is fun ever came to iOS I would download it in an instant. This app is a lot better than the reddit app though
  • Good app, some suggestions

    By 👇👫👇
    Design, ui, night mode, and the option to delete cache to save space = good Id like the option to disable going back by swiping back or pressing top left corner. Its annoying to go back to the front page when you were just trying to swipe the top bar or when youre pretty deep in the top posts of all time. I dont know if thats possible cause it seems like an iphone feature, not just this app
  • Used to be great, but now is slow

    By Gheghegh
    Was my go to app for Reddit, but as of a few months ago it has been performing terribly, specifically the in app browser. The app freezes for a few seconds when opening images, and YouTube hangs for a good 20 seconds before starting to load. I use this on a iPhone and iPad with same results. The Reddit app doesn’t suffer from this, so at least I ruled out my device as being the culprit.
  • I love the app, but ads keep autoplaying video full screen

    By jgmachine
    I keep getting ads playing full screen video every few seconds without me touching anything. Please fix this and you’ll get a glowing 5-star review!
  • Clearly the best Reddit client

    By tyler_zyco
    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.
  • iPad 10.5 UI to iPhone X?

    By 60FPSTech
    I love this app so much! I tried every reddit client out there before downloading Narwhal, and this is the one that works for me. I love it on my phone and ipad, and I wish reddit looked like it on the actual website. The ipad app, though, is so much better than the phone app. Would you be able to allow plus-size phones and the X to work like the ipad UI in when turned to landscape? Not sure how much extra work it is, but I'd love it. I supported you guys and would really appreciate it if you'd add that feature. And please take care of the gifs that autoplay sound until the app is force-quit. Thanks again for this awesome app!
  • Auto plays ads

    By swaglet9000
    Will randomly play video ads with sound automatically.
  • Used to love it now, meh

    By Radicldreamer
    This used to be a wonderful app, it was everything the official app wasn’t, user friendly and with a nice layout. Now, it has some REALLY bad lag issues where the entire app will seemingly freeze for up to a minute or more when viewing an imgur post. This is awful, sometimes it will recover while other times the app just dumps and brings me back to the iOS home screen, I kept waiting hoping it would get fixed but it hasn’t. I’ve had the issue on an iPhone X the newest iPad and an iPad Air 2
  • Been using this app for years and it’s easily the best

    By lkuecrar
    Use it on the iPad and iPhone and love it on both. It’s rare that iPhone and iPad versions of apps are equally made. Usually one is great and the other is a mess or even worse, a stretched version of the iPhone app for the iPad; thankfully that isn’t the case and both are tailored for their specific screen and both work equally well. Recently swapped to a Galaxy S9+ but still use this app on the iPad. Not having this app on my new phone is a major bummer though. There isn’t an Android reddit app half as good as this one so I’m slumming it by using the official app. Would love to have this on Android one day!
  • New Update makes App Unusable

    By McNiler
    While ads are understandable on a free app, the new video banner ad takes over the screen every 30-60 seconds, making the app almost unusable.
