I have had my apple for almost a year now and am still extremly happy with it. I am currently 7 months pregnant with my second, and looking into buying the pear converter to turn it into a double. Thought I'd have my say and I fear the apple isn't being wholly appreciated in the way it should!
There is a knack to collapsing the apple, and it is quite a heavy chassis. The grandparents really cant get to grips with the design, but for my personal use I've had no qualms whatsoever. It has a fantastic shopping basket, durable and suitable for country walks and rough terrain, fits through single doors a treat and folds neatly into the boot of our polo. Furthermore, I've had no end of compliments and comments on how comfortable our baby Joseph looks in it!
In general I'd say it requires care and upkeep like most things in life. The foam has split but has been easily replaced by the store - a lesson learned to keep an eye on teething children. Also, if it sticks I was advised silicon spray is the best, mess-free method of getting it folding smoothly once again.
I have no regrets in investing in an apple, particularly now I can continue to use it with the new comer in future (as well as have a play around with colours/flavours). Pricey, but worth it.
