@pixelfed As long as I only find this in the AppStore, you are not an alternative for me. I know there is also a mobile web frontend, I just say: no not acceptable.
@betamax65 Our main priority is building an accessible platform for the open web. Mobile apps are nice, but not everyone has access to the app stores or smartphones.
@pixelfed Have fun with it. I have access to this technology and that's how I measure what technology gets a chance with me and what doesn't. For me, it's still primarily the benefit and not the ideology that counts.
@betamax65 I understand that, we are working on a mobile app. We don't want to rush it though, Instagrams app set quite a high bar. The first impression means everything, and I hope you give it a try when released!
You are most definitely right, but I will never convince my friends to move to Pixelfed with me if they have no app to use Pixelfed from! Nobody among common photo-sharing apps’ users posts or scrolls their feed from the web interface…
In my opinion, developing an app should be priority number one, since I am confident and almost sure that it would greatly increase the user base!
Whats wrong with the frontend Pixeldroid:
@pixelfed it's amazing how it changed 😊 I really like the layout, it's pretty clear and easy to use. I would say it's clearer than now 👍
@pixelfed very nice! Much cleaner and better browsable. Maybe we can have a floating "New Post" Button instead of the tiny plus?
@pixelfed also I like the white space on the right side, there is now space for e.g. instance/network announcements
@pixelfed Maybe instead of having that large search bar, move it to the side. That way you can make the feed have more vertical space!
