If you haven’t heard about it already, an all new beautiful iOS Mastodon app is now available on the App Store. 🎉
It contains 3D Touch, Today and Share extensions, Siri Shortcuts, iMessage Stickers, a Watch app, and so much more!
@JPEG Got it! It’s great!
@sebastianhahn Thanks! I’m glad to hear it.
@JPEG Will there be an native iPad app in the near future? When I open Mast on the iPad Pro (12.9“) it‘s treated like an iPhone only app.
@sebastianhahn It’s currently intended to be iPhone only, but I do indeed intend to add an iPad app in the future.
@JPEG I‘m looking forward to it!
@JPEG Got it. I‘ll give you feedback as soon as I‘ve tried everything out. 👍
@ralphkuehnl Thank you! Would love to hear your thoughts.
@JPEG should there be a „create toot“ Siri Shortcut?
@pwaldhauer Will work on adding that!
@headachebooth It’s iOS 11 and up.
@headachebooth Apologies about that! Needed to make that the lowest version to allow certain Apple features to work.
@JPEG Did you make the app or are you just promoting it? How come it's not purchased by you yet either way?
@woah I made the app, I’m the developer.
@JPEG Shit looks good. How stable would you say it is compared to other, free apps? I'll purchase if its that good.
@woah Thanks, my opinions are obviously bound to be biased, but all my beta testers would attest to it being the best Mastodon app they’ve used.
@JPEG Your Bluebird app is in the top 200 for social networks in the US. Nice.
@woah It’s pretty cool haha, my podcast app is pretty high on the charts too. :)
@JPEG Looks really nice! How do you handle image captioning?
@pagrus Image captioning isn’t implemented yet, but will be coming in a future version.
@JPEG OK cool, keep us posted!
@JPEG how about iPads?
@Kracotte Will be starting work on that next week or so.
@JPEG then I’ll wait!
@jk this doesn't link to anything that I can see
New Mastodon app for iOS called Mast
@JPEG looks like you beat Toot! to the punch, good for you
– The back button on top does not work.
– How can I read DMs?
– The automatic theme change is highly irritating.
@zichy You can also swipe back from the screen edge. DM’s are within the notifications tab at the bottom, indicated by a speech bubble icon. You can head over to settings to toggle what long-holding does.
@JPEG Looks nice but why is there a massive empty „dead“ area? (iPhone 8)
@macsnider You can head over to settings and change the option for small segments to shift the segments up there. :)
@JPEG okay. But in the Mention/Activity View it’s the same. So much wasted space =/
@JPEG cool, looks very promising! Two questions about features I need to be sure they’re already implemented before I buy it:
1. Is it possible to see (and shortcut) other instances’ public timelines in the app?
2. Can I manage multiple accounts?
(Sorry, perhaps it’s somewhere in the feature list, but I couldn’t find it).
@kraehenpost Hey, yes to the first point. No to the second, although it’s planned for an update.
@JPEG thanks for the prompt answer! 👍
@JPEG can I caption images that I post in it? Does it implement filters/mutes?
@lastfuture Not yet, but it’s planned for a future update.
@JPEG When I am browsing a local timeline from another instance and try to fav a toot there, the app crashes. Is this a known bug?
@bestform It is indeed. It’s fixed for the next version. Liking/boosting instances you’re not a member of shouldn’t be possible at all.
@JPEG but only, if the toot does not appear in my timeline. If I follow someone from another instance, I can like/boost their toots, correct? And what about toots, that appear in my instance, because others follow them?
@bestform You can do toot actions for those that have been boosted as far as I know about mastodon and how it works. I’ll investigate.
@JPEG thanks. The client looks great so far. I will keep using it for a while and see how it performs. :)
@JPEG First of all - it looks amazing. Secondly - PLEASE UPDATE APPS ON YOUR PHONE. Anxiety kicks in hard!
@PawelOrzech Thanks! Haha sorry, I tend to only pick and choose updates after I’ve read the update notes and am excited enough to update them.
