Pinned toot

Ok, let's try an experiment. You can use this page to sign up for Toot!:

It will remain open as long as I dare, and hopefully I won't run completely out of beta tester slots!

And remember, not everything works yet! Report bugs at, but remember to check if they are already there!

Current status: I implemented filling gaps in timelines both forwards and backwards in time so you can read in either direction, but it turns out Mastodon doesn't quite support this yet.

Luckily our hero @Gargron has been looking into getting it working, so this feature may still see the light of day! It will just be disabled on older instances.

Been having problems with colds and guinea pigs here, so development is slow. Trudging towards another new release this week, though, which should be the penultimate release before I feature freeze and push for 1.0.

So I wanted to finally implement deleting. But we all know Mastodon's killer feature is "Delete & re-draft", so of course I need that too.

But. I had not expected just how much work that is. Re-using uploaded images and all. Christ, what have I got myself into?

I was going to push out a new beta very soon, but, uh, might be a little while still?

Things I love about @tootapp โ€”

- If you leave and come back, it keeps your scroll position (!!) โค๏ธ
- The โ€œtoot!โ€ alert sound is adorable ๐Ÿงก
- The icon is sweet and endearing ๐Ÿ’›
- You can choose to automatically see past CWs (theyโ€™re super useful, but donโ€™t especially help me) ๐Ÿ’š
- It shows replies on a subway map ๐Ÿ’™

I'm seeing a few crashes that seem to be triggered by tapping on a toot, or a link in a toot. I can't figure out how they happen, though, has anyone encountered this, and could you tell me what you did?

Yet another new beta version of Toot! is out! This time, it's mostly small improvements and bugfixes.

* Character count on posting screen.
* Toned down CW.
* Better display of direct messages on toot screen.
* Show name of app on toot screen.
* Copy text of toots.
* Hashtags with non-ASCII characters should work now.
* Various other bugfixes.

A new version to Toot! is out! New in this version:

* Federated timeline now available (click the title).
* You can set up which notifications are shown on the notification tab (click the title again!).
* Twitter keyboard when posting new toots.

As usual, use to sign up for the beta test!

Also, since a few people have mentioned it: Apparently notifications with images don't display great on the Apple Watch. Any iOS developers around who know if there is any way to customise notifications for the Apple Watch from your app?

There, the new version with a fix for the login issue should be out now! No other changes yet.

Looks like this is due to a fairly small change in the response Mastodon returns after logging in, which means it is easy enough to work around in the client!

I'll be pushing out a fix as soon as it gets through to iTunes Connect.

If you are getting errors trying to log in with Toot!, it is a server side issue that is being looked into. No need to report it to me!

No notifications for two hours?

I can dance now.

I have just pushed out a new beta build! New in this version:

* Toots with content warnings and sensitive media are now hidden.
* Fixed crashes on iPads. There is still no actual iPad UI, and there won't be for a while, but the iPhone UI should now work a bit better on iPads.

I think my favorite thing about the fediverse is that it actually never feels like I'm screaming into a void. It feels like I'm thinking out loud to a group of strangers who, despite not knowing me, are supportive and interested in what I have to say.

I think I need to log off from this account for a while or I will just be constantly distracted by people talking at me or about me. Try to get some actual programming done for once.
