Spider-verse was sooooo good! Such a beautiful style of animation and a great story. Truly felt like a comic book in motion in the best way possible.

I tested all the major iOS apps for Mastodon and compared their accessibility support. You might find this useful if you're looking for an app that will help you be a good citizen on the Fediverse: #iOS #Accessibility #A11y #MastodonApps

@JPEG am using another app in the meantime as timeline position is a necessary feature for me but keep opening Mast on occasion to test as other than this issue it’s by far my favorite. Would also love to see syncing of the timeline position via iCloud so I could easily use Mast on multiple devices.

@JPEG just a quick FYI that sadly the latest update still didn’t fix my timeline position loading issues. It seems to work on occasion now but very unpredictable and unreliable.

So sick of the user hostile practice of forcing people to call or chat with someone to cancel an account. If you can sign up online, you must be able to cancel online without a chat or call required.

I was cancelling a couple accounts for temporary budget reasons, and probably would have re-opened them in a couple months or so but I refuse to continue doing business with companies that have practices like this. This time it was NY Times and Scout Alarm.

Is there a way to tell HomePod to add another speaker during playback? Tried "add _speaker name_" and "play in _room name_". Works when telling it to play something new but can't seem to change speakers while playing.

@JPEG last few updates haven't fixed the scrolling behavior in Mast. Every time I launch the app it takes me to the newest post instead of where I left off. Something you're still working on? Used to work pretty flawlessly.

Best Buy’s got $100 off on the HomePod right now for Black Friday. I’ve been wanting to get one for a while but couldn’t justify the $350 for my use cases, at $250 I caved.

Picked up a HomePod during the limited $100 off sale that B&H had the other day. Very curious to see how I like it in practice with the Siri limitations it has. Wasn’t worth it to me at $350 but $250 feels just right I think.

You know how Dorian Gray safeguards his painting?

You know how Scrooge McDuck protects his number one dime?

You know how Sméagol cherishes the One Ring?

Thats how I want app developers to feel about my scroll position in Mastodon apps.

So infuriating seeing the “your browser doesn’t support full screen” on embedded YouTube videos on iOS these days. Such a bullshit line from Google, it has nothing to do with my browser, it’s because you want to force people to use your shitty app and then charge people for the built in OS feature of picture in picture. Really wish more folks would stop using YouTube as the default video platform.

@JPEG would love to see timeline position synced between devices. I know you’re still working through some bugs with remembering timeline position so thought I’d throw this in there to make it even more complex for ya ;)

@JPEG heh, enjoyed the joke and thank you for real release notes. And for the new video viewer!

New iPad Pro is indeed gorgeous. Had intended to wait until next month to pick one up but all the talk made me impatient. First thing I found surprising is that the raise to wake feature from the recent iPhone’s is missing, seems like an obvious thing that is subtle but surprisingly annoying to not have.

@Gargron what do you think are the chances of the feature to move your followers with you to a new server (issue # 177) of happening within the next 6-12 months? I saw you changed a bunch of labels recently, just wondering if you have any new thoughts on that.

I don't watch cable news often and am curious what you folks that do, think is the best (most factual, does the best research, has the best analysis, intelligent anchors, etc.). Really not looking for flamewars and am doing my own research as well but would value the opinions of folks I respect on here.

@JPEG just throwing out another request to get rid of or disable the floating thumbnail video feature. Gets me every single time, I swipe to dismiss a video and instead it goes to that floating view I don't want, I then try to tap that little X button and miss so it goes back to full screen and I have to reach way up to the X on the top left of the screen. So frustrating and it literally happens every single time I watch a video.

Just played my first night of Diablo ever, definitely my kind of game! Really glad they brought it to the Switch.

@JPEG when in the activity view it’s weird to me to have both the Mentions column and Activity column since Activity has mentions in it already. I’d much rather just have Activity and close the Mentions column.

@JPEG just started using the iPad app and would really love some control over the columns. I never read the local or Federated timelines and would much rather have two columns (personal timeline and activity) in landscape and only a single column (personal timeline) when in portrait.
