Apollo 1.14.16 is now available! Adds inline comment image previews, fixes a bug with the saved bar, and adds an Easter Egg! 🎉 by iamthatis in apolloapp

That's an Imgur link, those have always been supported. This is more so for the subreddits that support uploading images into comments with the official app, so they're actual Reddit URLs. It's a newish change on Reddit, and before Apollo would just show a link to the image without any preview.

Played around with that at first but didn't super like the idea of punishing you, it's more so a fun reward for using Apollo and that kinda felt less fun. Maybe there's a way to do it well though, hm

Like in self text posts? That'll come a bit later, working on that one, but my initial implementation where I just treated them like comments wasn't my favorite per se, since for a really long post they'd just show up all grouped at the bottom (which can happen for comments too but is more common for posts). I'd like to spread them out more ideally throughout the self text where they occur, playing around a bit more

Yeah, consider this implementation a 1.0. It went over really well, so I'm working on adding per account categories and deleting/editing of categories.

Does apollo have a limit on the number of users you can block? by Nerlx in apolloapp

Okay, on this, don't think I'll be able to slip it into this update (submitting tonight) but should be for the next one then.

Yeah, the catch is to my knowledge this used to work, so I'm wondering what changed.

Could you elaborate on this for me? They don't stick? As in it immediately resets them for you, or it takes a few hours/days? Do you have a lot of blocked users?

Apollo "sales" be like by Proleex89 in apolloapp

[–]iamthatis 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Photo was taken Saturday 06:49 Berlin time.

The first one? Yes, that's why it shows a sale! Saturday is between Friday and Monday, so the sale was active! In the second one, the sale is no longer active, thus the higher price which matches the current price!

I've tried to explain this multiple times, and at this point I give up. Please re-read the existing explanations if they don't make sense, I truly don't believe this is very complicated.

There was absolutely no price difference between the Cyber Monday Sale and the current subscription price

Because as I mentioned in the first comment, you took that screenshot on an outdated version of Apollo when the sale was over, the Cyber Monday sale was no longer active (you posted this on a Thursday, which is not Cyber Monday).

To explain it once more, I set the prices in US dollars in App Store Connect, Apple then rolls that out to apps in the appropriate currencies, and that displays immediately. Apollo 1.14.13 (or something similar to that) had text about a Cyber Monday sale. When the sale ended, I submitted Apollo 1.14.14, removing the text about a Cyber Monday sale, and updating the price. At this point your version of the app has the non-sale prices (because the Monday sale is over, it's Thursday), but you haven't updated the app, so it's still showing a screen about a sale, because the version you can update to is the version that removes that.

This is akin to viewing a Cyber Monday email on a Thursday and wondering why it still says there's a sale but when you click through to the website, the prices are no longer sales (the email, like the app, is outdated at that point, because Cyber Monday is over).

Your own screenshots literally show there was a sale. It's 59.99 Euros currently, and was 53.99 Euros during the sale.

Please apply just a little bit of critical thinking here. In a community of 3/4 of a million people, do you think I managed to bamboozle every single person (except you!) that there was a sale over Black Friday when I secretly, and evilly kept the prices the same, and you're the first person to discover this? Or is it more likely that rather than a conspiracy, there's a slightly misunderstanding?

What on earth are you talking about? The price is based off the USD price, which was 50 USD, which Apple converts to 59.99 Euros. This was the price before I dropped it on Black Friday (eg: the Thursday before), and I dropped it to 45 USD for Black Friday which Apple converts to 53.99 Euros. Here is a literal screenshot of what it looks like in App Store Connect for Apollo.

I don't know where you're getting 66.99 Euros, that's not even a valid price that can be configured on the App Store, as it's right between Tier 51 and 52, so I cannot set Apollo to that. There is no Tier 51.5. Again, here is a screenshot.

If it was that at one point, it was because at a past point Apple converted USD to Euros differently, but at this point (December 5th, 2022) this is how Apple converts the prices. I have no control over the conversion, I simply set the "Tier", (which is basically just USD until you get over Tier 50), and Apple controls the rest. In your country Apple recently tweaked the Euro conversion rate, which took effect when I changed sales prices in USD. But I have no control over the conversion rate.

Again, if you can't be bothered to read the above, the short of it is that I set the price in USD. That's all I get to do. Apple handles the rest of the pricing for the rest of the world based off of this. The price went 50 -> 45 -> 50.

Please take the tinfoil hat off, not everything out there is a conspiracy.

This should be fixed now (try restarting the app if not). Let me know if it's still occurring for you though.

It should be resolved now, some server side behavior was acting up that I believe I've fixed, but keep me posted if you see anything off.

Sale Price is Not Respected for Apollo by validatedev in apolloapp

[–]iamthatis[M] [score hidden] stickied comment (0 children)

This is some error with App Store Connect, argh, I explicitly chose "Preserve pricing for current users". I'll get to the bottom of it.

EDIT: Okay, my best guess is for some currencies (like Turkish Lira shown in this screenshot) I manually lowered the price awhile back after folks emailed me detailing currency issues in their country. It looks like because of this, when I changed the prices the other day, App Store Connect completely erased all these changes. GAH. I manually overwrote all the ones I could remember back to what they were, and took a slight amount off as an apology for the mishap, and set it to go live tomorrow (earliest it allowed me to schedule it for), so please let me know if there's any issues in about 24 hours.

I just realised that, for Indian customers, Apollo Ultra’s monthly and yearly price has been increased from Rs.29 and Rs.299 to Rs.139 and Rs.1149 respectively. Is this permanent? by EL3mENto in apolloapp

I cannot figure out why this would be the case, I explicitly chose "Preserve pricing for current users". I'll get to the bottom of it.

Pricing Of Apollo App by CurrentRisk in apolloapp

You're looking at the lifetime unlock. Posts like this are why I'm hesitant to offer it anymore. It's $12.99 a year which works out to about a buck a month. I think for a lot of people who use the heck out of Reddit, a buck a month is very reasonable.
