  • Much much better than Other reddit iOS apps.

    By Zach Copeland
    I’m transferring from android to iOS. I loved reddit is fun so much and was looking for an iOS equivalent and I’m thankful I found just what I needed. I can’t really “favorite” some subreddits it seems tho. I’m going to have to either scroll down to find it or type it manually is my only complaint. Having the favorite option, you can see it on the top of the subreddit list for easy access. That’s how it worked for alien blue and reddit is fun for example.
  • Will you fix the comment downloading problem

    By Travel eats
    This problem has been gone on for way too long. Force-quitting and restarting my phone—the only fix—is really annoying. Other than for this problem, I generally like the app.
  • Best way to read Reddit

    By tominator1983
    If you hide every post after reading it, then every time you go to Reddit you will be guaranteed to see fresh content. I have been using this method for years, and then I discovered this app. Just swipe right to hide! I have longed for this feature for so long! No more hunting for a tiny link to hide!
  • I like it - better than the official reddit app

    By seanrod
    Intuitive design and good app all around. If the developers are reading this, please consider adding a “swipe to go back to previous page” option, as it’s really the only thing keeping me from giving this a 5. I’m sure a fair amount of users would like that.
  • Well, it's a Reddit app

    By xocadaverox
    I don't really browse on my phone all too much anymore. Some of the "features" laid around over lap each other and can be difficult to use. Like down voting can lead to upvoting or constantly opening the subreddit menu. The god awful sideways feature kicks in all the time like all other bad apps for the iPhone. I'm still on iOS 9.3.2, and that's not changing anytime soon, so I have to thank the people behind the app for at least for keeping it optimized for my end, unlike the actual Reddit app. Last complaint, I hate ads, but I have Reddit gold!..but narwhal doesn't care. Overall I'd like to give it 3.5/5 bc it actually still works
  • Best available Reddit client.

    By Chandler Frantz
    Despite occasional crashing, Narwhal remains the easiest to use and cleanest Reddit client on the App Store. Highly recommended.
  • Absolute best Reddit client.

    I’ve used Apollo for months and tried the official app. Comparing this app to Apollo is sort of like comparing Apollo to the official app. There’s simply no competition.

    Best reddit app by far. Apollo looks better, but Narwhal works so much smoother and is faster by quite a bit
  • Can’t switch accounts in new update

    By D. Wayne P.
    I’ve been using it this app for a while and the only problem I have with it is that in the newest update I can’t switch between my accounts. I signed into an alt account, and the app wouldn’t let me switch to my main.
  • Please, please, please fix account swap commenting.

    By Sonalis
    Every time I leave a comment it shows up as being from one of my accounts even if I am not logged into it. This has been happening for months, and not just to me. Please fix it. This would be a perfect app otherwise. Just please fix the commenting from the wrong account.
