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!

@tootapp Excited that this version will be about 15x improved.

I worry that I mad the reporting UI TOO MUCH FUN. Please don’t report users just to test this, no matter how bad their anime opinions are, even @halcy. He is trying his best.

The actual changes are:

* A proper native UI for reporting users.
* Blocking entire domains is now possible from the app, and editing your blocked domains can be done from the settings.
* Hopefully fixed a bug where openings message bubbles on the iPad would lock up the UI for some people.
* Fixed a small UI theming issue where some views might use the wrong colours on first launch.

Toot! v16.0 is out!

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

Wait, 16.0?

Yes, I got tired of looking at the "1." at the start of the version number, and realised I don't really have any plans that would result in me ever changing that to a 2, so I figured it might as well drop it. I never liked the three-part version numbers anyway, and it's fairly normal these days to just bump the major version for each iterative release.

Anyway, this is a release for getting rid of people!

Woke up to find that apparently I now somehow own toot.to/? Not entirely sure how this happened but it seems to be true.

It currently does nothing but forward to the App Store page, but, maybe I will come up with something else?

The actual bugfixes are:

* Fixed filtering.
* Fix a bug where the text area would scroll weirdly when entering and editing long toots.
* Fix a crash in the music player, and one in the sharing extension.
* Fixed a bug where custom emoji would be shown stretched.

Toot! v1.15.1 is out!

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

This is a small bugfix release, which I pushed out while developing other stuff because I couldn't figure out how else to get the privacy policy to update, and I thought I might as well.

(Turns out, you have to actually press the "Publish" button to update it, so this release was pointless, but at least you get a few bug fixes early now!)

Seems notifications are back! @Xjs managed to wrangle Heroku back under control, so massive thanks to him for fixing this!

You may get some outdated notifications for a while as the notification queues on various servers re-try sending old failed notifications.

Looks like notifications aren’t working in Toot! at the moment. Seems like a change on the Apple side broke the notifications relay.

Currently trying to figure out how to fix it!

Toot! v1.15 is out!

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

This is mostly an accessibility and bugfix update, with accessibility improvements mainly on the posting, photo library and toot screens. But there is one small fun feature: You can now share a toot as an image, to make it easier to share toots on other social networks or messaging apps.

Oh, forgot to add it to the official list, but there is also now an "Open in Safari" button on the various share sheets, which is handy for opening toots or users in the web interface, among other things.

Full change list:

* Better accessibility support on various screens, such as the posting screen, photo library and toot screen.
* Added an option to share a toot as an image, to make it easier to share things on other social networks or messaging apps.
* Add support for limited photo access on iOS 14.
* Fixed a bug where the emoji picker would not work on some servers.
* Fixed logging in to servers that run their web interface on a separate domain.
* Some other small bugfixes.

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.

Full release notes:

* Finally: A picker for custom emoji! Check the toolbar above the keyboard while writing a toot!
* Fixed a crash when trying to edit the description of a photo posted from the sharing extension.
* Conversation bubbles are now correctly closed when opening a direct message from a notification.
* Added a settings flag to give all posts from bot accounts a content warning automatically.
* Fixed a layout bug when clicking on a toot.
* Lots of smaller bugfixes and visual tweaks.

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!
