The Apollo app that allows users to interact with Reddit on iOS will be shut down due to new high API prices, reports The Verge, citing app developer Christan Selig.

According to him, the application will be closed on June 30.

“Reddit’s recent decisions and actions have unfortunately made it impossible for Apollo to continue,” Christian Selig wrote on his Twitter page.

At the same time, in a large post on Reddit, he reiterated that the platform’s new pricing policy would cost Apollo too much.

“Going from a free API for 8 years to suddenly incurring massive costs is not something I can feasibly make work with only 30 days,” Selig said. “That’s a lot of users to migrate, plans to create, things to test, and to get through app review, and it’s just not economically feasible. It’s much cheaper for me to simply shut down.”

We remind you that in April, Reddit announced changes to its API policy. They limit the number of API requests made by third-party clients. After that, developer Apollo said that Reddit can charge the app about $20 million a year if it operates at its current scale.

Dozens of subreddits and moderators also reacted to the situation. As of June 12th, they are going private in response to Reddit’s API price hikes. Some protesters are expected to regain public access within 48 hours, but some are isolating themselves until the situation with Reddit is resolved.

However, Reddit will make an exception for some companies. It will apply to non-commercial applications that meet accessibility needs. They will not have to pay for access to the platform’s data.
