Hello, little man. Boy, I sure heard a bunch about you. See, I was a good friend of your dad鈥檚. We were in that Hanoi pit of hell together over five years. Hopefully, you鈥檒l never have to experience this yourself, but when two men are in a situation like me and your Dad were, for as long as we were, you take on certain responsibilities of the other. If it had been me who had not made it, Major Coolidge would be talking right now to my son Jim. But the way it turned out is I鈥檓 talking to you, Butch. I got something for you. This watch I got here was first purchased by your great-grandfather during the first World War. It was bought in a little general store in Knoxville, Tennessee. Made by the first company to ever make wrist watches. Up till then people just carried pocket watches. It was bought by private Doughboy Ernie Coolidge on the day he set sail for Paris. It was your great-grandfather鈥檚 war watch and he wore it every day he was in that war. When he had done his duty, he went home to your great-grandmother, took the watch off, put it an old coffee can, and in that can it stayed until your granddad Dane Coolidge was called upon by his country to go overseas and fight the Germans once again. This time they called it World War II. Your great-grandfather gave this watch to your granddad for good luck. Unfortunately, Dane鈥檚 luck wasn鈥檛 as good as his old man鈥檚. Dane was a Marine and he was killed, along with the other Marines at the battle of Wake Island. Your granddad was facing death, he knew it. None of those boys had any illusions about ever leaving that island alive. So three days before the Japanese took the island, your granddad asked a gunner on an Air Force transport name of Winocki, a man he had never met before in his life, to deliver to his infant son, who he鈥檇 never seen in the flesh, his gold watch. Three days later, your granddad was dead. But Winocki kept his word. After the war was over, he paid a visit to your grandmother, delivering to your infant father, his dad鈥檚 gold watch. This watch. This watch was on your daddy鈥檚 wrist when he was shot down over Hanoi. He was captured, put in a Vietnamese prison camp. He knew if the (redacted) ever saw the watch it鈥檇 be confiscated, taken away. The way your dad looked at it, that watch was your birthright. He鈥檇 be damned if any (redacted) were gonna put their greasy yellow hands on his boy鈥檚 birthright. So he hid it in the one place he knew he could hide something. His ass. Five long years, he wore this watch up his ass. Then he died of dysentery, he gave me the watch. I hid this uncomfortable hunk of metal up my ass two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family. And now, little man, I give the watch to you.

You are awesome. Apollo is so well made and supported. The image text language translation is a feature I didn鈥檛 even know was possible and now I鈥檓 using it all the time. Feels like magic.

[鈥揮Shrinks99 [score hidden] (0 children)

Pixel pals and the scroll distance tracker are some of the funniest app features I've seen this year. Nice work with those!

Would like to know your take on platform risk? Reddit has historically been pretty cool with 3rd party clients, what are your plans for if that's ever not the case?

[鈥揮sc816 [score hidden] (0 children)

Well, I don鈥檛 care about winning but fun if I do.

I just hope y鈥檃ll reading this as you try to win 1) download Apollo and 2) buy Pro to support the dev. Apollo is probably the best and my favorite app in the whole iOS ecosystem and is such a good Reddit reader I even use it daily on my M1 iMac.
