I build the Apollo Reddit app, an alternative Reddit client for iOS with some snazzy features! I'm donating 100% of the proceeds today to our local animal shelter that's low on food due to a ton of kittens! AMA!
My short bio: Hey! I'm a 25 year old fella from Eastern Canada and long-time Redditor who builds the Apollo Reddit client for iOS. I worked at Apple in Cupertino for a summer as an iOS engineer on the enterprise team back in 2014 while I was getting my Computer Science degree.
At the time I was enamored with the late and great Alien Blue but wanted to improve on it, so I went back to school that September and spent the next three years building the Reddit client of my dreams with a really clean design that felt at home on iOS, while also being super powerful with a ton of snazzy features. Thousands of Redditors beta tested it before release and truly shaped it into something I'm super proud of.
I released it last October and the support's allowed me to work on it as my full-time job since graduating university and I get feedback from the community over in r/ApolloApp to figure out what to add to it next.
Anyway, people have asked for an AMA quite a bit and today seemed like a great occasion as today I'm donating 100% of the proceeds to our local animal shelter (SPCA, the Canadian version of the ASPCA in the states). We're in the midst of kitten season and they're running low on food and I want to help out and Reddit is awesome so it seemed like a great mix. So if you're interested at all in a cool Reddit app and want to help out an awesome cause at the same time, I'd love if you checked out Apollo! You can also donate directly or even just donate to your local shelter because they could probably use the help!
It's a free download and there's a "Pro" version you can unlock for a few bucks. There's also a tip jar in the app (Settings tab) which will go toward it too if you already have Pro or are feeling extra generous.

AMA! I'll try to answer as long as I feasibly can!
