Popular third-party Reddit apps shut down

Several popular third-party Reddit apps — including Apollo, BaconReader, and Sync for Reddit — have shut down due to being unable to afford the platform's new API fees, Engadget reports.

The biggest among them is nine-year-old Apollo — an iOS app which recently featured prominently during Apple's WWDC 2023 keynote event.
 
The funny thing is that my Reddit is Fun app still works, but not when logged in.
So Reddit allows apps to still pull stuff for free, but they just can't interact with the site....

Indeed. A pity as I was hoping that reddit will be blocked now for me and everyone else (few will get the useless official app), which would drive down reddit traffic significantly.

Now the swift death to reddit traffic will be much slower and advertisers might still stay on a bit longer.

Relay is sticking around but will follow a subscription based model. Pricing TBC, but for now, it's working still.
 
Joey is also still working.
The old version is free and with no ads.
