The problem with doing a client for this is lack of scale. Assuming there's 100k active users, 50% run iOS/Mac, probably < 10% of those would pay for an app. I'm thinking ~5k copies which sucks compared to the effort required.

🐓 and 🥚 I know.

@pth even if your math isn’t conservative that’s still $100K assuming you charge $20.

But the platform is growing. That $100K is followed pretty soon with another $100K...

And we’re not asking you to rewrite. Just to make a good faith minimal viable port.

Do something quick. Call it a preview. If there’s interest (and $) then do the work to really make it shine here.

@pth over 6k new users on just one instance this week alone. (Mostly refugees from twitter who are all engaged users who are used to best of breed clients)

I think that next 100k users is going to happen quicker than you think.

I’ve been on this service just a few days (ignoring the account I made months ago and lost the credentials for) and already have 5% the followers i had on twitter that took 12 years to accumulate.

This place is booming.
