  • Best reddit app. Period.

    By Temo Lara
    I’ve tried sooo many different apps including the native Reddit app. And none of them were cutting it. This one is a game changer. You can tell it was made to be straight forward and no bs. I HIGHLY recommend those that already use this app to spend the few dollars to remove ads. My favorite, probably ever. Also shout out to the devs for the surprise when you reload the page in r/trees😉. I see you👀
  • Excellent App With One Minor Bug

    By Kay17sunny
    This is the best reddit app due to the ability to save subreddits, fast scrolling, and the fact it's the only reddit app I can download on my dinosaur iPod Touch. XP The only issue I have is the frequent appearance of these 1-second long, completely blank videos. There's literally no need for them at all, since there are already banner ads below the text. I know you can pay for no ads, but a 1-second long video of a black screen is not an ad; it's an annoyance.
  • App crashes frequently

    By Sophia Flowers
    I’ve been using the app for a few months and at least a couple times a day the app screen goes dark and has to be restarted. Update: the app now offers an obnoxious loud beeping noise every time the scrabble advertisement pops up! Even if your phone is on silent you will still hear it!!
  • Favorite Reddit app, only one request

    By Sir Blackous
    This is my favorite Reddit app out of the dozens I have tried. I’ve been using it for years. The only request I have is to have the option to flair posts when making one. A few of the subs I frequent require you to use a flair depending on the type of post you make, but there’s no way to do that in this app unless you switch to desktop to add it in later.
  • Good reddit app

    You know what would make it better? If you fixed ads hijacking my audio. For now I'll look at another alternative, even though I've used this for years.
  • I can’t believe this isn’t recommended more

    By JohnKimble
    This app oozes quality. As a 10+ year reddit user, I feel like Narwhal truly understands the reddit experience and integrates it perfectly onto the iPad. ALWAYS for me, the best reddit experience was on desktop, but Narwhal has changed my mind. It takes no info or control away from desktop viewing, but adds so much sleekness and intuitive controls that it’s now the best way to access reddit for me. 5/5 better then whatever official reddit is doing to its site nowadays
  • Intuitive, streamlined, like RES for mobile

    By Smothegreat
    I've tried them all: redditisfun, bacon reader, the official app, and none compare to Narwhal. First a lot of things function in gestures. Swipe left to up vote and swipe more left to down vote. Swipe right to save a post or reply to a comment and more right to access other options. To go back or forward just swipe the page left or right. Pull from the left to bring up the customizable menu. It also supports the 3D touch so you can hard press to preview the post or thread (your choice in the settings). Comments, threads, and chains are collapsible with a touch. You can set it up to hide posts after you view them. I think this is on by default and can be a bit alarming if you aren't expecting it. Don't worry, if you want to go back and look at it again, you can go into your recently viewed through the menu. You can also unhide the post. There are ads I'm the free version but if I recall they are just banners and sponsored posts. I paid the $4 to remove these because I like to support developers and especially ones who do the one and done pay model. No subscription, you just pay once and you're good. The developers are just doing this on the side as a sort of passion project. Along with the no ads, the premium gives you more customizing options. I'm not sure which ones are under the pay wall because I paid after like a day. But my husband hasn't paid on his phone and the app is perfectly usable without it. And there's also a night mode which is available in the free version.
  • Touch ID breaks app on iPhone X

    By CaptainJackHoff
    App works pretty well, but if you enable Touch ID on the iPhone X, it will just crash when you try to open it. Reinstalling disables that option and “fixes it”, but then you’re stuck using a pin code instead.
  • Best reddit client

    By escapedgoat
    This client is the best for Reddit. I like how you can hide read posts and keep going. Excellent app. I’ve had it for all of two mins, but is there a way to just sift through photos in a grid? That would be great
  • Best reddit app easily

    By Uppuli
    No, Apollo is not the best. This here, this narwhal is the best. It is so clean, clutter free, minimalistic and fun to use. I hope the redesign stays true to all the above things I mentioned. All the other apps are heavily bloated and looks clutter and frankly ugly af. Please devs, I love the narwhal as it is already. Please keep the core functionality and the way we use it intact and maybe light changes to them to better them. I was the using the free version for a long time. I used to just tweet and get pro for a month for a long time. But I decided to pay for it and get pro. It really is worth it and I love the developers.
