  • Can't search The_Donald

    By Modogg187
    They are using censorship to block us from being able to search posts in /r/TheDonald.

    Like a toiger.
  • Gfycat going back to beginning

    By Jsjdjdksksks
    Ever since the new update for iOS 12 when I play a gif from gfycat it plays the first 4 seconds and then goes back to the beginning and does it until I hold my finger on the screen. If I try to fast forward it plays 4 seconds from where I let go and does it again.
  • Video playback speed

    By KingLucent
    Narwhal is my daily Reddit driver and it does its job exceptionally well on iPad. 2 feature requests: 1. Give us video playback speed tools to play videos faster or slower Move the subreddit/account navigation bar to the left of the subreddit feed so all navigation can be done from one side.
  • Best of the bunch, for me

    By Postcognition
    After trying and using several different Reddit browsers for a few years, I settled on this one. Every aspect of the app is customizable and well-executed. Superior browsing experience. My only request would be to show a progress bar underneath GIFs, but otherwise this app is perfect.
  • Stopped working for me

    By For tablet
    I run an IOS9 and this app used to be great! Now it crashes every time I try to open it. I will give it five stars once this issue is addressed.
  • Freezes often

    By jn522
    Features and GUI are good - but when a feed is mostly photos the app frequently hangs up for as much as several minutes, or freezes completely. Reading through user comments online suggests that many have a similar experience but no solution.
  • Recent loss of feature

    By Okaynicegoodjob
    Edit: I’m an idiot and hid the entire explore section of the sidebar, 10/10 more customizable than I thought. Great app, the best I’ve used for browsing reddit. Can’t help but notice there’s no easy way for me to jump directly to a subreddit anymore unless it’s in my favorites or shortcuts though.
  • Favorite Reddit Client

    By CJ Luce
    I typically don't post reviews, but I've been using this app forever and feel obligated. It is a near perfect Reddit client with the added bonus of displaying a smiling narwhal on your home screen. What else can I say? It's great.
  • Few Missing Features

    Offline mode. Be able to download subreddits for offline browsing. Or scheduled times to download. Swipe left or right when on post (not looking at comments) to go to next/previous post.
