Popular Reddit app Apollo, which recently warned that social firm’s API price hike would cost the developer $20 million a year for access, announced today that it’s shutting shop: In order to avoid incurring charges I will delete Apollo’s API token on the evening of June 30th PST. Until that point, Apollo should continue to operate as it has, but after that date attempts to connect to the Reddit API will fail. I will put up an explainer in the app prior to that which will go live at that date. I will also provide a tool to export any local data you have in Apollo, such as filters or favorites. In short, the Apollo app developer said, “Reddit’s recent decisions and actions have unfortunately made it impossible for Apollo to continue.”
