The official #Mastodon app for iOS is now on the App Store! Get it here:
@Mastodon congrats on the impressively polished release!
Are multiple instances/servers supported or am I missing something?
@Mastodon Wow. I can’t find it by searching the app store for “mastodon” but it’s the top result for “mastodon for iPhone”
…this is the iOS app store. What other system could it possibly be for and why is it necessary to specify?
@Mastodon is there any possibility it will ever be compatible with older ios? still running on 13 because phone is on the older side.
@drh I had the same problem. But searching for the full "octodon.social" instead of just "octodon" worked for me (for some reason)
The next older device is an iPhone 6 which is almost seven years old. It should not connect to the internet for security reasons.
Additionally you also cut out people if the app doesn't perform well. So the tradeoff isn't quite as clear as it might seem on first glance.
@eval1cious @Mastodon I'm afraid there are a few things you missed, one of which is that not everybody with a "newer" device updates to the latest and supposedly greatest version of the OS because it may (and many times will and has) unbeareably slow down the device to the point of making them unusable. Another thing to consider in choosing how many iterations to support is that Mastodon is (in theory, and hopefull) used all around the world, even in "poor" countries.
@Mastodon Congratulations on getting it done! Are you planning to create a translation project on Crowdin?
I wish congratulations to @Gargron for pushing the Mastodon app out of beta! Thank you for the hard and stunning work! We love you.
@Mastodon Would be curious to see how accessible this is with screen readers. I don't have my iPhone right now though.
@Mastodon In the "find people to follow" screen, if you open a profile and scroll down, the controls and title on top are white foreground on almost-white background.
