Last week: the best Reddit app for iOS »
We reviewed several popular Reddit apps for iOS in search of one that would offer a superior experience over the others. Let’s face it — the Reddit web experience isn’t great, so it’s important the app looks nice, is easy and pleasant to use, and offers a fair way to support the developers.
Right away, we knew that Narwhal for Reddit would likely be our top pick. It was far and away more enjoyable to use than any of the other apps, and this has held true even in long-term testing.

How to quickly share Reddit items from Narwhal »
Narwhal was recently chosen as the best Reddit app for iOS since it’s easy to use and makes the Reddit experience better. A large part of Reddit is being able to share posts with friends. Narwhal has a great way to share items quickly in the main feed. You can do this by tapping and holding (not 3D touch) an item to bring up quick options to share the Reddit post or the external link (if there is one) instead of opening the thread, hitting the ellipsis button, and then sharing.
512 Pixels: The History of the iPod Shuffle »
The iPod Shuffle has been an interesting device to follow from the beginning, and Stephen Hackett published a really informative video about the history of the device this week. There have been some ups and downs in the history of this device, and Stephen walks us through it with a fantastic video.
Apple’s 40th Anniversary »
Tomorrow is Apple’s 40th Anniversary, and in case you missed it, they made a short, 40-second video that recaps those 40 years beautifully. Of course, it’s a spectacular video to watch, just like you’d expect from Apple. If you’re interested in digging into the words and names that blink by on the screen, Stephen did a post that annotates a lot of the things that Apple mentions in the video.
