I love the swiping customization and the ease of us for narwhal, all the other apps ive tried are glitchy or unattractive. The desktop website has more features than the mobile one will show but i enjoy the simplistic availability.
There's this ad that you can't see, but it's just an alarm. It scares you into thinking your carbon monoxide alarm is going off. Not cool. Going to be uninstalling until fixed. ^^ that problem has been fixed. Overall app is great, use it as my main client for Reddit. Don't let the harsh statement above drive you away. Definitely worth the download.
Very distracting ads in interface. Better apps available
On some subs that link another sub you can't see the comments or original post from the first sub. For example /r/ofcoursethatsathing. I can't view the comments in that sub, I can only see the post they link.
Clean, intuitive, fast, etc. Only thing is it freezes. A lot. This seems to happen when using the app in landscape mode, and you try to scroll through your feed, while another post is loading.
Awesome look, good functionality, but if you post a lot of image post, get another Reddit app. This one just randomly lets you post photos, most often though it's not going to let you. I made a post in /r/Narwhal and other people have this problem too but nothing has been done about it. Had the app for almost a year now and maybe one update. The problem started about a month ago and Narwhal doesn't fix what's broken nor even reply when you ask about an issue. Basically, if you're a lurker get it. If you actually like to post, get something else. Now that Reddit has an official app I'm deleting this.
What the heck is going on with this app? Been using it for years but now there is some ad embedded (I don't know which one because it doesn't pop up visually) that sounds like a smoke alarm! The only way to stop it is to completely close the app. When it first happened, we were actually checking the smoke alarms. Now I'm scared to use the app!!!
I love the app, but the ads they use take over the phone by opening the App Store, web pages, and sound alarms that sound like smoke/CO detectors. These ads are incredibly intrusive and most likely will lead users to malicious websites. The service the author uses for these ads is incredibly irresponsible and needs to be reconsidered.
This is a less of a review for users, but a review for the developers. The last update, Narwhal addressed the issue of pop up advertising redirecting us from the app. In similar fashion, there are now "pop up" sound bytes. What I mean is, when viewing narwhal from my iPhone, suddenly a loud repeating beeping noise starts playing on my phone. This noise continues if the phone is locked and is stopped only when the app closes. The three times that it happened to me is when reviewing the front page and wearing headphones. The beeping noise is absolutely deafening and sounds like a my office building's fire alarm is going off. Needless to say, whomever your advertising partner is, they are using ruthless and annoying tactics to distract users from the app to their advertisements for simple clicks, whether they be accidental or on purpose. I reccomend a fix immediately! This will stop users from wanting to access the app at key points during the day i.e office hours.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Literally can't be on this for 5 freakin minutes without receiving at least 3-6 popups. I can't use it anymore. It was great while it lasted. Seriously 10/10 would not recommend.

Just the perfect reddit app if you can get over the narwhals in the UI 😝
This is by far the best Reddit app I've ever used. It is significantly better than any other app and it's just like the website
One of the most used apps on my phone.
Narwhal is my go-to app for Reddit. I begrudgingly left AlienBlue since development stopped. Narwhal has a beautiful UI and all my favorite features...night mode (which is super easy to change back and forth by one touch), large image/small image choices for browsing subreddits, auto hide read posts (Reddit is always new and fresh!!), subreddit filtering, various fonts and sizes, passcode lock, and lots of user interface choices. I'll give Narwhal five stars when they add Reader View when reading a linked article so the font is bigger, weird formatting is removed and ads are eliminated. Super fantastic app
And couldn't be happier. Developers listen to what users want, and come up with things I'd never think of adding. It's been great seeing the evolution of this app, and after almost years now of use, browsing reddit on my computer browser feels clunky. Keep up the great work everyone!
Excellent app, but I get a weird but sometimes where clicking a post will bring up the comments full screen with the article link in a box at the bottom that you have to click on, very strange.
I'm calling it.
Light yet many customizable features and settings. And, with the newest update, you can change the main icon (if the narwhal isn't to your liking).
I've tried all of the Reddit apps, and Narwhal is before the best of the bunch! Very intuitive, quick, and easy on the eyes.
This is my favorite reddit app and the frequent updates are great. I highly recommend it.
