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

itunes.apple.com/gb/app/mast/i

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

The WWDC app got updated. 😍

And the session name hints really are intriguing. 🤔

(The dark one 100% confirms dark mode for iOS 13)

Going to be handing these stickers out at WWDC this year too. Come say hi if you’re in the area! 👋

(Tip: they look great on your AirPods)

Started work on making a new and beautiful ProductHunt app. 😍

I've started work on a new ProductHunt 'Makers' app (as part of their API competition). ProductHunt released V2 of their API and it uses GraphQL. It's a learning curve, but excited to dive in and get something cool working! Got two weeks to do this, and I'm at WWDC for most of it. So deadline's real intense.

Mast 1.7.0 is now available to download. It's Mast's biggest update yet!

You can get it over at: itunes.apple.com/us/app/mast/i

For a full change log, head over to: thebluebird.app/post/mast-1-7-

As always, if you're a fan of my frequent updates, please leave a positive review on the App Store. :)

So, Mast 1.7.0 has now been submitted to the App Store and should hopefully be available over the coming day or so. In the meantime, I've got the change log here if you'd like to give it a read: thebluebird.app/post/mast-1-7-

Thanks! :)

By popular demand, Mast’s threaded replies will be even more threaded. ✨

Threaded replies. And are those new icons I see? 🤤

Mast is going to get better.

I've pushed up the latest Mast update, but still got to recreate the screenshots, write up the update notes, and also create a blog for the full feature-length update note that won't fit in the App Store update notes field. This'll most likely be done tomorrow or day after. I've done enough for today.

Currently got 70+ items on the change log for the next Mast update. I have no idea how I'm going to fit this into the update notes section. I'll aim towards releasing this update sometime this weekend.

I almost want no new users to use Mast until that update drops. It's that much of an improvement.

Next Mast update will look a lot more refined. Can’t wait to let y’all start using it.

Slowly getting back into the flow of things.

A close family members has unfortunately passed away, and so I'll most likely not be able to work on Mast for a few days (and no update this weekend). I'm sorry for the inconvenience this may cause.

I've been working pretty much all hours of the day since the last Mast update for the next one. It currently has over 50 points in the change log, and is geared to be the best Mast update yet!

(Please keep expectations low though as there's not really any new features, it's mostly stability and fixes)

Your brain automatically translates wtf but not lol.

In all my past endeavours, the APIs and competition have been the reason I struggled to maintain them and keep them going. But with Mastodon, those worries aren't there. This is the ideal platform.

I've always been building apps for social networks. I started off with a reddit client, then a twitter client, then a YikYak clone, and now a Mastodon client. It's what I love doing.

The next Mast update is going to improve stability by quite a huge leap. I'm using that currently and it's making me wonder how the previous version was even usable. Can't wait to get that into your hands!
