If you haven’t heard about it already, an all new beautiful iOS Mastodon app is now available on the App Store. πŸŽ‰

It contains 3D Touch, Today and Share extensions, Siri Shortcuts, iMessage Stickers, a Watch app, and so much more!

I’m happy to announce the release of my new iOS Mastodon app β€˜Mast’. πŸŽ‰

For example, added the ability to tap the profile header to view the header image, which will be in the next version. Little things, but useful.

My main focus for Mast will always primarily be on the iPhone app though. Adding some more Quality-of-Life improvements right now before diving in to more drastic changes regarding timeline loading/syncing/etc.

I'm really not that happy with the iPad version of Mast. It needs some major rework, so most likely going to start on that again from scratch over the next few weeks. Only spent like 2/3 days making that, and it shows.

The second round of interviews for this new job I applied for went amazingly well. Going to hear back next week if I got the job or not! Amazing holidays and salary, along with an exciting work culture and great team, and they're leading in their field. It's perfect.

Pushed out a fix for the tip jar issue with Mast, and also included a fix for the flaky translations.

Pleasantly surprised that the the app went into review almost immediately after submission, and finished review in half an hour. Quickest turnaround time yet!

Translating toots in Mast are now fixed, and translate the entire toot regardless of line breaks or special characters.

The tip jar in Mast was prematurely included in the app, oops! The actual consumables haven't gone through app review yet so unsure what even shows if someone tries to tap on one of those.

Who even needs a keyboard case when you have a Magic Keyboard.

Any apps/games suggestions for the iPad for someone who's drawn in by design and minimalism? Something along the lines of Procreate/Things/Machinarium/Little Things/Lumino City.

I'm so glad Masterchef's back on. The celebrity one just finished a few weeks ago and we're already onto the professional ones.

For the 48 weeks of my iPhone badgering me to backup to iCloud, I was pleasantly surprised that in the end it only took about 15 minutes.

The best litmus test for seeing how good/worthy/usable an app is is to see whether I would personally use the app daily as my main driver for all my needs regarding that app. I've actually never been able to say that before for any of my apps, always defaulting to using a competitor. But with Mast, I use it so much, and every few minutes too at that! I think I may be onto something here.

Update: One of the shops down the street has got a hold of my iPad and will be picking it up from there tomorrow!

My iPad Pro was 'delivered' about 6 hours ago, just got home to see it's not here... where is it.

Instructed my delivery service to leave my iPad Pro with a neighbour because I’m not going to be in, let’s see if they manage to follow basic instructions.

New version of Mast submitted to the App Store with a few bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements!

(Doing minor point updates over the next few weeks, with steady updates to fix the main things)
