So please help our developer @charlag out:

We want to show the upload progress of media files - should it be a percent value or a progress bar? Or both?

And if we implement a tab to view a users media, would you prefer a fourth tab in profiles or should we hide it in the menu like the web version does?

I wish we could do UI/UX polls on what people would prefer for
1) Media upload progress - progress bar or percent as text?
2) Media tab in profile - forth tab (with scrolling tabs) or hidden in the menu?

Had fun this evening fixing this in .
First, some fixes with media uploads.
github.com/Vavassor/Tusky/pull

Then, media upload progress! (I wanted it myself for a long time).

Another question: Do you prefer the custom tabs or your browser to open links from Tusky?

Anybody here who uses on a tablet?

We estimate the app would grow 4-5 mbs in size. Users on older Android versions would be able to see newer emojis that now display as �. We probably could make the emojis optional but not the additional apk size.

Another Tusky question!
Should we use Twemoji in Tusky? So emojis would look exactly the same as on the webversion and on all Android versions, with the drawback that it would increase the apk size significally.

1.2.0 of @Tusky is now available on F-Droid

There is currently an issue in Tusky v1.2.0 where custom emojis are not sized correctly. We are aware of it and will fix it in the next release :)

There seems to be some confusion about Tusky containing non-free code/google-services/firebase stuff, so let me clear that up.
The current 1.1.4 build on the Playstore contains a firebase library, and the 1.1.4 build on f-droid does not. We just got rid of that library, so with the next update that will be released on sunday, Tusky will be completely free and open-source on all stores.

Tusky 1.2.0 will be released on sunday! If you are a translator, now would be a great time to translate the new strings into your language.

So another question: Do you like the current Tusky Logo or should we look for a new one? mastodon.social/media/zf4BnjfM

Currently I am preparing a small update that will fix some bugs and bring minimal Android 8 and Mastodon 2 support to Tusky. Once this is done I will look into new features. Tell me everything you want to have in Tusky! I personally would love multi account support.

Hello Mastodon, here is @ConnyDuck, the new maintainer of Tusky :)

I on vaguely posted about this prior, but, I haven't developed since august. I've been doing a game project and am going to be doing outside work soon and I don't see myself coming back to it.

I feel like the best move would be to hand it off to another maintainer. But also it's free to fork, of course, as the source code is open.

F-Droid didn't actually receive Tusky 1.1.4 like it should've, yet. Currently trying to get that resolved. Hopefully it'll be fine and out in a day or two.
