    Apollo was the only reason I used Reddit. I really enjoyed Reddit via Apollo but have been around long enough to know it’s time to walk away from Reddit in any form. So here I am testing the waters of Lemmy and trying to figure out how to integrate it with my Mast client Ice Cubes app - if that’s even possible. Apollo was an awesome app with a solid UX design but it’s obvious Reddit is pulling a Twitter and there’s no way I’ll support that or their impending IPO.

      I agree, I use mostly Boost on Android and used Apollo on my older iphone (and used many other like Sync, Relay, Slide, Infinity etc), the experience of these 3rd party app are so much nicer that the awful official Reddit app, honestly I just want to access the communities, and I don’t care about all the thing Reddit have on their app, I want a clean, nice, fast experience. The current state of Reddit makes me sour.

      I hope that there will be the same kind of apps for Lemmy and other instances, for now the Lemmy app on Android seems nice, it isn’t as feature rich like the popular reddit ones but it could always be improved.

        The RedReader dev is considering turning RedReader into a lemmy client which would be fantastic IMO as its super simple and very accessible to screen reader users

          I’ve never used it before, but that would be a great thing. I would love to have other reddit client like Boost, Sync, Infinity or others to have compatibility with Lemmy 🙏

      I mostly use reddit on a real computer, that makes it bearable. I wonder how much longer it will last.
