As Mastodon is built on open standards, anyone can write an app for it, and there are lots of different ones to choose from.

You can find a list of Mastodon apps for Android, iPhone/iPad, Linux, Mac, Windows and more at joinmastodon.org/apps

(Of course you can just use your web browser if you prefer)

@feditips its not fully accurate that is labeled 'Paid'. AFAIK that applies to Google Play installs, but app is free when installing via

cc @apps

What I find a pity in general is that is so focused on 'productization' of own projects and ecosystem, with less emphasis on this thing called we all build

As a result many people don't know Fediverse, but heard of Mastodon or think fedi === masto.

Many of listed clients also support for instance.

Well... yeah, that's a good point.

However, I guess the page I linked to is aimed at people totally new to the Fediverse, who probably don't know about F-Droid.

When first approaching new users, especially non-technical users, it's best to keep things as simple as possible?

Maybe the best way for other Fedi platforms to get visibility is to set up their own onboarding sites, e.g. PixelFed set up pixelfed.org

@feditips

Good onboarding entrypoints to the fedi in general would also be great.

Like for instance @fediverseparty comes a long way (though its audience currently is existing fedizens, people in-the-know)

In general I've advocating for less focus on individual "app silo's", and for it may be exciting to explore more task-oriented approaches to app design. See also:

I fear Fedi is getting very fragmented otherwise.
