Apollo to Shut Down on June 30 Because of Reddit API Changes reddit.com

Christian Selig:

Eight years ago, I posted in the Apple subreddit about a Reddit app I was looking for beta testers for, and my life completely changed that day. I just finished university and an internship at Apple, and wanted to build a Reddit client of my own: a premier, customizable, well-designed Reddit app for iPhone. This fortunately resonated with people immediately, and it’s been my full time job ever since.

Today’s a much sadder post than that initial one eight years ago. June 30th will be Apollo’s last day.

This sucks, and the details in Selig’s lengthy post make it worse. Even keeping in mind that it is from the perspective of a single person, it is damning for Reddit’s developer relations and its management.
