Okay, with another influx of new people, here is again my article "Welcome to Mastodon: Here is what's different and why it's better" medium.com/@Gargron/welcome-to (I am working on a better in-UI onboarding process)

On that note, seeming like it's taking up a whole bunch of storage? Super easy cleanup. Just tap Clear cache in App Settings. Purges everything (mostly images and videos you've been looking at). πŸ‘

Wrote a Mastodon guide to make it easier to spread the word: ndarville.com/blog/2017/04/01/.

for Mastodon v1.0.2 update: iOS9 support is now live for anyone who is unable to update to iOS10. :3 There are no plans to support iOS8 still. Direct message support is here as well, among many other tweaks and adjustments! appsto.re/us/OfFxib.i

The next major item on my todo list is to cleanup the navigation throughout the app to make everything easier to swipe around. Thanks for all the continued feedback πŸ’•πŸΊ

update: under settings there is now a "data export" page. For now you can only export a list of who you're following and who you're blocking, but the page also shows how much media storage you're consuming

Seriously love all the input I've gotten today it's unreal πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸΊ

A friendly reminder to my new followers that if you'd like to see your suggestions come to life ahead of the App Store I have plenty of TestFlight beta slots open. Just send me your AppleID. You can also DM me on twitter. Same username. :3
