OK, so communicates with this server:

This server is hosted in the USA(!!!)

There are several endpoints: /api/v1/instances gives a paginated list of instances, and seems to be the *only* one that doesn't require authentication.

There's also /api/v1/statuses and /api/v1/users. Not sure how authentication to this API works yet...

By the way, it also appears to be tied with this company:

@Pasty still, shoving everything it can into a US-based server... :/

@mi It doesn't just grab data from Tootdon users but it grabs the toots that have been interacted with by Tootdon users also...

@slipstream Ugh! 😑 Thanks! Can you recommend an iOS app that behaves itself? ... or should I use web in Safari (which I’m just looking at now)

@mi @slipstream To me, Amaroq seems fine. Nit a lot if functionality, but beats a web interface 11 out of 10 times.
Can handle multiple accounts as ling as they're on distinct instances.

@MacLemon @slipstream Thanks. Yes I had Amaroq installed from when I first signed up last year. I’ve now revoked both and trying the web interface to see how I get on.

@slipstream Deleted the apps, changed my password and now using the web version. Works quite well. Thanks for the heads up 🙏🏻

@mi @slipstream

Having written an app myself, I'd stick with your instance's web front-end. (Assuming you trust your instance Admin)

@deeds @slipstream Thanks. That’s what I’m doing for now. That’s the interesting thing about all this isn’t it? ‘trust your admin’. I was recently reading up on diaspora to try it out & unless I set up my own pod then I have to ‘trust my admin’ (someone unknown who’s set up a pod who has just over 100 users?) - makes me pause but it’s no different from what billions do with Facebook/Twitter/Google all the time!
