any designers on here that wanna help out on a mastodon app for ios? particularly interested in working with you if youre part of an underrepresented group in tech.
boost for visibility? 😊
@edwellbrook What's the app name?
There's now efforts on several apps among people I know, and neither has a 100% feature set yet, though some are closer to it than others.
@Gargron it’s called “Tusk” atm, but that’s open to change :)
if you wanna put me in touch with other people working on apps, that’d be amazing!
@edwellbrook is this a paid job?
@odinsdream still deciding whether the app should be free or paid. if paid, then it’s absolutely a paid gig for the designer.
obvs need to decide on what we’re doing before anyone other than me does any work on it tho
@edwellbrook it seems like offering to help any of the other existing apps would be better, then.
@odinsdream absolutely an option. particularly if you're trying to build a full featured client. doesn't work so well if you wanna make a fairly opinionated client which misses out on some features though (more like what im going for)
@edwellbrook I'm just clarifying that you're asking under-represented folks to do unpaid labor
@odinsdream gotcha. that's not what im going for at all, and i'm sorry that's how it sounded.
my options here are make a paid app and pay the designer, or, find a designer to work on an open source project.
@edwellbrook okay. Good luck.
@odinsdream really embarrassed it sounded otherwise. thanks for bringing me up on it!
@edwellbrook what isn’t working for you with the current iOS app?
@curtismchale what do you mean "the current ios app"? there's no official one afaik, and im looking for something a little more opinionated
@edwellbrook Amaroq for Mastodon by John Gabelmannhttps://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/amaroq-for-mastodon/id1214116200?mt=8
@curtismchale have used it, and like it! want something a little more opinionated and i guess twitter-like
@edwellbrook hey you can hit me up! I've done design work for open source apps before, and i do UX for a living :) Not a ton of time on my hands right now, but I can contribute! :D
@edwellbrook I would love to help out with usability and accessibility stuff.
@edwellbrook I’ll help with any piece big or small :)
@adriankenny i think im good for the moment, but will let you know! 😄
