I’m disappointed that Reddit is jacking up its API pricing and forcing developer Christian Selig to shut down his Reddit app Apollo. It’s one of my favorite iPhone and iPad apps. It feels like Reddit is flipping a big fat middle finger to me and many other people who enjoyed using Apollo.

I use Apollo to find about half of the memes, vintage ads, vintage photos, and other found media that I post regularly to Facebook and Tumblr. If you’ve enjoyed seeing those, then Reddit is flipping you the bird too.

I also use Tumblr to find those found media, and I’m not thrilled with the direction Tumblr is taking either.

UPDATE: A friend reminds me that Reddit is essentially killing all third-party apps, not just Apollo.
