Pinned toot

It's finally here! v1.0 of Toot! has been officially released on the app store!

itunes.apple.com/us/app/toot/i

For those who have not been in on the beta test already, this is an Mastodon client for iOS, full of character and whimsy. It is multi-instance, multi-account, it is fast, it is comfortable and it is above all a lot of fun!

It has a strong focus on user experience, animation, and attention to detail, as well as being the best client for Mastodon around. Try it now!

Weird, that was exactly 500 characters. Anyway, that excludes a new SECRET FEATURE: You can now use a powerful SCANNING FEATURE on fediverse users. It will reveal to you, with 100% scientific accuracy, what kind of being they are. Click "..." on a user's home timeline to try it.

Absolutely not spending days putting in joke features because I got distracted, this is totally a useful thing.

At long last, Toot! v1.14 is out!

itunes.apple.com/us/app/toot/i

I've been taking some time off to work on other projects (that may at some point even turn into things that are released) but I'm back to working on Toot! for a while now. This version brings a long-awaited feature: A picker for custom emojo! That, and some bugfixing.

I have just released an update for WaveFlower, a toy app I created some years ago:

apps.apple.com/fi/app/waveflow

This apps the origin of the music visualiser in Toot!. It uses the microphone instead, so you can sing to it, or play your favourite instrument, or just make weird noises at it. It will respond by drawing shapes based on the sound waveform. It can be pretty mesmerising!

Also wondering if Toot! triggers the paste warning on iOS 14. I do check the state of the pasteboard in order to show a paste button on the keyboard toolbar, but not sure if that will trigger the warning or not.

Has anyone tried Toot! on iOS 14 yet? I haven't wanted to mess with any of the betas just yet so I haven't had a chance, but it would be nice to know if there are any issues I should be planning to fix.

Furthermore, Toot! v1.13.2 is out.

itunes.apple.com/us/app/toot/i

Another bugfix release with a few more fixes that didn't make it into the last one:

* Fixed the share sheet extension.
* Minor visual tweaks.
* A bug where toots with link previews ended up overlapping other ones was possibly, maybe fixed.

New:
* Fixed tap­ping on the head­er and avatar im­ages on a user pro­file page.
* Fixed weird scrolling be­hav­iours on the post­ing screen on iPads.
* Fixed some caching is­sues that would very oc­ca­sion­al­ly cause mys­te­ri­ous is­sues with the time­lines.
* Fixed some colour is­sues with the Ob­sid­i­an theme.
* Fixed some dark mode UI is­sues on iOS 12 and else­where.
* Dis­abled some of the more com­pli­cat­ed ef­fects on old­er de­vices to pre­vent crash­ing.
* Fixed some rare crash­es.

Toot! v1.13.1 is now also out!

itunes.apple.com/us/app/toot/i

This is a bugfix release for the previous version. It fixes some newly introduced bugs and some older ones. Nothing else new and exciting, though!

Show thread

If anyone is using Toot! on an older device, I have a quick favour to ask: Could you go to the ... menu, then pick Relax, and then try out the different options?

Then report back with what device you have, and whether any of the different modes were broken or caused a crash of any kind. Even if they all work, that is useful information so let me know!

Toot! v1.13 is now out!

itunes.apple.com/us/app/toot/i

The main new feature in this release is a new screen for direct messages (finally!), and an (optional) floating bubble system for direct messages. Also a bunch of smaller tweaks and bug fixes.

* Fixed some rare bugs related to deleted toots.
* Fixed the hashtag completion.
* Fixed the character counter which was sometimes off by one for each link.
* Fixed some transition animations.
* Made browsing through images slightly more responsive.

Show thread

Actual change list:

* Added a direct message view.
* Added optional floating bubbles for direct messages.
* Small visual fixes for direct messages in dark mode.
* The currently selected account and tab are now saved when the app restarts.
* Slightly better support for displaying toots in right-to-left languages such as Arabic, Hebrew and Farsi.

This took ages to finish because I got stuck rewriting parts of the app I wasn’t quite happy with, to support the current and future features. I hope I didn’t introduce too many new bugs in the process, but keep an eye out and let me know if anything is behaving oddly!

(Also took ages because I got sidetracked into working on waha06x36.itch.io/soratobu-ol, check that out too!)

man i love the "relax" modes in @tootapp, sitting here looking at the stars in my mastodon client is peaceful as hell

itch.io has an absolutely gigantic bundle of games out now, with all money going tothe NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund and Community Bail Fund!

There is lots of great stuff in there, and also lots of extremely weird stuff. Extremely recommended.
