↔️ bridge version v0.3.0 released, now with support!

if you have an Android 4 device you might find useful this bridge since most Mastodon clients need higher Android versions and @delta works on Android 4.1

if chatting by email already felt crazily awesome, you will love to do social networking by chat by email! 🦄
and if you do chat a lot via DM you will appreciate the chat view for your private conversations

To test it send /help to: simplebot@testrun.org

did you know you can play games in ? (and compete in scoreboards with friends in groups)

this is still a kind of unadvertised feature. It works completely on top of Delta Chat without depending/trusting on any 3rd party service, all communication happens as usual via messages between you and your friends

For example this tower building game, with fancy UI and music!!

FWIW at some point we successfully verified that post.ir and chmail.ir work with DC users in Iran but other providers do not work because they require the POP3 protocol which Delta Chat does not support. One big usability issue with Delta usage in Iran is that they need to spend the effort to introduce with each other -- QR code scan or telling each other e-mail addresses works for that.

Digital Restriction Management (or short #DRM) is preventing us from harnessing the true potential of digital media. It enforces artificial scarcity for the sake of upholding outdated business-models. A better world is possible. Lets build it together. Let's abandon technology which is #DefectiveByDesign

did you know you can create shortcuts for your more used (or pinned) @delta chats in your home screen / launcher?

that is a feature supported on recent Android versions, to use it long press the app icon in your launcher briefly and a pop-up menu should appear then drag and drop the desired chat

It's no surprise that #DeltaChat mastodon account ( @delta ) has more followers than the equivalent twitter account (@delta_chat).

But what impresses me is the amount of platform you can install it from. delta.chat/en/download

Great job from the Delta team to make it available in so many places.

we mostly figured out how apps can be used like "normal" apps on . (a bit of was needed as there is no straight-forward API as on :)

✨ Improvement in the ↔️ bridge 🌉

🎉 Users of the Delta Chat ↔️ Mastodon bridge:

you might have already noticed some improvements in the bridge, now the first media attachment from toots is shown directly in your Home chat as well as direct/private chats or mentions

also the name of the toot's author is shown as the message's sender in Delta Chat rather than as part of the message body
