Pinned toot

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

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!

Playing around with using the subway markers on timelines to show that toots are replies, or have replies.

But I'm wondering what to do about the number of replies to show. I could do it the way the subway maps do, in which case I can show up to 6 replies and then "more than 6".

But Mastodon has, for decent enough reasons, gone for 0, 1, 1+ as the number of replies to show. But I don't have a state that represents 1+ very well, so I am considering just going with 6+.

Any strong feelings?

* The settings screen has been improved - it now features explanations of what some settings actually do, and it also has options for setting the default visibility of posts, and changing the app icon.
* Small bugfixes and UI tweaks here and there.

What's new in this version:

* Themes! You can now pick the look of the app from four different themes, both dark and light. You can even use different themes for different instances.
* There is now a short explanation of how Mastodon works when you start the app the first time, to make things a bit less confusing.

Toot 1.1 is finally out! It is, as usual, available on the App Store.

If you have it already, you should see an update soon!

Rejected because the instance they picked while testing (no idea which, of course) was down. Brilliant... Let's see how long it takes before they act on a reply.

I really want to sleep but I have to wait for Apple to process the build I just uploaded so I can submit 1.1 for review.

Why does this take so long, why does Apple not let me sleep.

I love the way @tootapp handles scrolling and loading more content. Depending on the direction of your scroll it’ll load the most recent, or the oldest content. Clever and useful.

Mastodon 2.6.0 is now officially out! That means that Toot! can now fill gaps in timelines in either direction, depending on which way you are reading.

Once your instance upgrades, check it out!

I've also applied to put up a shop on Designed by Humans, since I think they have more reasonable shipping to Europe, but that seems to take a while, so it's not up yet.

I put up a version of the icon Threadless:

Mainly so that I could get some stickers for myself, but if anyone else wants one, you can get it there! There's also lots of other incredibly non-sensical goods you could buy with it on. If you do, you are my hero.

I enjoy the fact that the notification sound I'm using in @tootapp was composed by me. (I contributed some new notification sounds to it.)

I just realised I totally forgot to make an option to make the timeline go sideways.

Experimenting with running the notification relay on more reliable hosting. Please let me know if there are any problems with notifications arriving as a result!
