What will it take to get more 5 star reviews for Mast on the App Store 😭 I'm steadily fixing bugs and adding great new features alongside too.
@JPEG I’m sorry that you have to go through this right now! I think you’re doing a great job, especially when one keeps in mind that Mast still is relatively young app.
Maybe it was a bit unfortunate that there were two highly visible bugs affecting functionalities many people seem to care about (notifications & remembering read position) over the last weeks that have overshadowed all the improvements
@julianruf Thank you for the support. That's a very valid point about those issues overshadowing the rest. Hoping to get them resolved as much as possible going forward!
@js You’re right, the way I’ve phrased it isn’t 100% correct as both problems still aren’t fully solved (sorry, English isn’t my first language)
I’m 100% with you that the lack of a robust & intuitive read position mechanism is a downer, because like you I like Mast for many other reasons (functionality, design, open source, …)
Let’s hope that @JPEG will find a good solution soon. I’m quite sure that this then will also lead to some 5 star reviews as the rest of the app is excellent
@mcg This is definitely something I want to do going forward, but it's a giant of a task for now. Tweetbot took years perfecting it. But really hoping to get something better working sometime in the near future. A lot of my limitations are due to API limitations for now.
@mcg Yeah just going to have to wait for the API to evolve really and hold on for now till it gets there to a more usable and stable state. It's already great but could always be better, especially for timeline loading. Pagination will always exist these days in things though due to the sheer volume of things. And Amaroq's something I haven't tried (I briefly did before) but will check it out.
