narwhal for reddit App Tips & Tricks

narwhal for reddit Reviews


It’s ok  Lisako69  2 star

I don’t like the inability to upload photos. Also, for some reason when I open a thread that’s a video the video either takes forever to load or doesn’t load at all... wasn’t like this before seems to have happened with an update.


Best Reddit App  Frogg42  5 star

This is the best Reddit app out there. It has the most options and settings, it's smooth, and the slide to vote is the bee's knees.


Great  nonnull  5 star

Freaking love this app, best way to read Reddit. iPad support is stellar.


Good formatting but serious freezing/hanging issues  TheRealAlbatross  3 star

The app is well formatted, and I love the night mode. Browsing is easy and quick. But occasionally the app will simply freeze on loading a page. Sometimes minimizing the app will restore functionality, sometimes you re-open it and it is frozen and the home button doesn't work and you have to press power and return to the lock screen to use your iPad. This has happened to me on multiple wireless networks. I used to simply clear the cache and the app would work fine again. Now even that doesn't stop the hang ups. Very disappointing! I like this app and want it to work! Any help is appreciated.


Best Reddit Client  Neurodrive  5 star

Coming from Alien Blue, I'm very happy to have found narwhal. The functionality and gesture control in the app is amazing. Hands down the best way to experience Reddit on iOS devices!


What happened?  Elektricwun  3 star

About a week ago I started having trouble with this app. Whenever I click a link I get a white blank screen. I can't do anything but force close the app.


Easy Interface. User Friendly  AlchemyAlice  5 star

I'll pay a few bucks extra for no ads. I can tap on a post and see the picture and comments? Sign me up. I just wish it had HoverZoom. If it does, I haven't figured it out yet. Thanks, guys!


Constant porn ads. Devs don't care.  local_cat_enthusiast  1 star

Reached out to the devs over 5 months ago about their porn ads and got the John McCain "that's very unsettling." I refuse to be pressured into buying a full-version just to get rid of porn ads. Feels like a shake down.


Best Reddit app for iOS  ElvisDied!  5 star

I think I have tried them all but this is my personal favorite. The UI was easy to learn and navigate.


Best iOS Reddit Client  alexhaynes32  5 star

After trying almost every Reddit client on the App Store, Narwhal is undoubtable the best due to their great design, ease of use, and reliability.

Worthy replacement for Alien Blue  NathanJD  4 star

Could not log in to my account. The app crashed each time I pressed the "Allow" button on the OAuth permissions request dialog. Edit - This has now been fixed. App is nice but I would prefer the option to browse comments without loading the post. It's a big hog of mobile data! Edit 2017/8/3 - I've discovered that I cannot post comments. Am always greeted with a generic "We're sorry. An error has occurred. Please try again." Edit 2017/8/9 - Comment issue was due to suspicious activity lock. Found out when I went to directly. Also found the option to disable auto-loading of posts in the advanced setting.


Awesome  Jjyfffgh  5 star

Honestly this is the best reddit app on iOS. The official Reddit app doesn't even offer basic features like filtering or blocking subreddits. That said, there is a slight bug where it glitches and keeps the lower half of the app frozen on the bottom half of your screen. This happens when you rotate the phone (iphone 7+ in my case) and rotate it back. Not sure if this is because I do it too sporadically or if it's just something that happens randomly. Still an awesome app with many features! P.S. DO NOT STOP UPDATING, DEVELOPERS! You're doing good work!


This is the best Reddit app.  CyanTheRebel  5 star

I've tried them all, and no other Reddit-like app has the same smooth, clean, professional feeling that narwhal carries.


By far and away the best reddit client  Ginnipe  5 star

Title says it all. The best reddit app there is. I VERY rarely run into any issue with it and from my year of using it have only had it crash on my 2-3 times total. Great functionality. Dark mode included. Just the most well designed way to browse reddit. I genuinely can't go to reddit on my computer because it lacks in so many ways to this.


The best reddit app I've used.  Kppppmbine  3 star

Please fix the bug where exiting out of images freezes the app for, like, 10 seconds. It's a small amount of time to freeze, yeah, but it shouldn't be freezing at all. You may think 3 stars is harsh but I click on pictures a LOT on this app, so it's annoying if the app have a mini seizure each time I try to pull out of the full screen view.


Awesome Reddit client!  Ry368  5 star

The only thing I would like to see is gif auto play in the big picture mode feed.

Beat Reddit app  Todd Morrison  5 star

This is app much more customizable compared to the reddit app. It plays gifs without issues too.

By far the best reddit experience on mobile!  Mr. Wisebear  5 star

Been using this for more than 2 years now almost daily and it never let me down! ❤️


Ad hijacking  NOBOJAK  1 star

App is constantly being redirected to App Store or an ad page on safari.


Pesky swipe left or right on a card  99.King  3 star

I always find my self swiping left or right on a card by accident, I either end up hiding the post or upvoting by accident. There should be a customization toggle to disable this "feature". Until then I will look for another Reddit client. Also, to swipe away from a post, I have to reach all the way to the left of my screen just to swipe right and away from the post. But overall i feel that Narwhal is okay.
