If you've been on the fence for buying Mast for iOS to enhance your Mastodon experience, here are the overall ratings for the app.
If you're put off by the few 1 star reviews, this is an example of what they're all like.
"I'm loving everything else about this app except this".
On the other hand, seeing them as constructive criticism and we're on our way to a perfect app.
@JPEG Phew, putting pressure onto the developer/s … those comments about upgrading the rating after implementing/changing certain things feel almost like blackmailing to me. Hmmm, but maybe they don’t know any better?
Anyway it’s good to think about it as constructive criticism. 😅
@MrDoodlezz It’s definitely almost like blackmailing, which sucks. But I guess it is effective and they know it. Oh well!
@JPEG Giving a 1 star review for a single bug feels kind of harsh ...
@JPEG While I’m at it, the last improvements to remembering the reading position where a big step forward, thank you!
There are also 2 small bugs that I’ve encountered recently:
- Links embedded in toots like from @Stratechery_RSS aren’t shown / can’t be clicked
- Toot progress indicator is off the plus button on iPhone XR
@julianruf Thanks! I'll get onto embedded links next week or so, and check out the placement of the progress indicator whilst I'm at it too.
@JPEG Thanks! Just in case I’ve failed explaining the first bug, it’s not about embedding a preview of the article, it’s that Mast doesn’t recognize that there’s a link behind the first line of the toots (see screenshots of Mast and Toot). Sorry for any confusion.
@julianruf Ooh got it! Thank you for the clarity.
@julianruf It's definitely quite a mean thing to do!
