Apollo is a popular third-party client for Reddit, and it got a big update today with Apollo 1.7. The feature list is too big to share here, so I’ll share my favorites:
GIF sounds! A new phenomenon on Reddit as of late has been GIFs that have audio. Is that basically a video? Totally, but it’s great in a pinch on Imgur and Gfycat to give a little more life to a GIF of a kitty yawning.
Easier multireddit adding! You can now now add a subreddit to a multireddit directly from the subreddit.
Subreddit icon options! You now have the option to show subreddit icons by posts and by the subreddit in the subreddits list.
App Store: Free (Offers In-App Purchases)
Apple issued a DMCA takedown notice to Twitter after someone posted an iPhone encryption key, but then retracted the request.
An Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) breaks down the MacBook keyboard problem on Reddit, saying Apple’s dust explanation is BS.
Apple senior vice president Craig Federighi confirmed the news to Redditor federicotrevisani1, but it will be little more than a minor inconvenience to Siri Short users on these older iPhones.
Reddit is regularly manipulated by marketing agencies who use the platform to shill for fake news, products, and reputation management.
Christian Selig, creator of popular Reddit client Apollo, took to Reddit yesterday. He’s asking for animal shelter donations to support his local shelter.
Our local animal shelter (SPCA, similar to ASPCA in the states but Canadian) is overflowing with kittens thanks to kitten season (warm weather means kittens breed a lot) and running low on food so I wanted to make a donation but figured the Apple/Reddit community is a great generous bunch so I wanted to use that to maybe raise some more money for the shelter, so 100% of Apollo’s proceeds today are going to the shelter to get them food and supplies!
Apollo is free to download, and there’s an in-app purchase for the Pro version. If you’re already a Pro member, you can make use of the Tip Jar in the app settings.
The person accessed early user data, which includes everything from the year 2007 and before. Email addresses, usernames, and salted/hashed passwords were most likely accessed.
Spoiler alert: If you haven’t seen Avengers: Infinity War stop reading now. With that out of the way, Reddit is going to experience its biggest forum ban ever on July 9th when the moderators of the thanosdidnothingwrong subreddit randomly ban half their members. It seems only fitting since Thanos did that very thing in the movie, but on a galactic—or universal—scale. Of course, you won’t turn to dust if you’re in the half that’s banned from the subreddit, so at least there’s that. Ironically, the forum may have more members after the ban than it did before the moderators announced the plan because people are signing up in droves just to see if they survive.
There is a social network for anyone, like readers, athletes, outdoorsman, and a whole lot more.
Redditors are complaining about their iPhone X screens becoming unresponsive in cold weather and Apple says it plans to address the issue with a software update.
