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 https://github.com/DagAgren/toot/issues, but remember to check if they are already there!
Looks like Apple's servers are rate-limiting quite severely, so you may struggle to sign up. Retrying later may work.
There are still plenty of spaces left.
Closed it down for now since no more requests seemed to go through. Will open it again in maybe half an hour and see if it works better then.
All right, we have reached 500 testers! I'm going to close signups for now, so there are some left for later out of the 1000 available slots.
I'll post here when I re-open, so follow and stay tuned if you still want in.
I'm told the tester limit is now 10000 users rather than 1000. So signups are open again, since there is lots of space!
Just remember, this is still a beta! Not everything works. No content warnings, no federated timeline, no search, no autocompletion for user names, and so on.
@tootapp how do I view the federated timeline? Local is easy enough to figure out but I’m unclear about federated. Looks great so far!
@tootapp Yay! It doesn't jump to the top when refreshing the timeline. That's pretty much all I want (and haven't gotten until now) in a Mastodon client 😀
@tootapp wow, i just installed it and I really like the UI & concept. Will use it now and of course report bugs 😍✌️
@tootapp Something went wrong, please contact the application owner: Rate limit has been exceeded for: testflight|default|APPLE_CONNECT:16053263593
@tootapp app working well for me so far. Do you have a way of reporting issues/ feature requests? Is it possible to store (even after app died ) reading position? I like to read every toot.
@bitomule See my profile for the link to the bug tracker. And timeline positions should always be stored.
@tootapp It looks like my instance isn't running a recent enough version of Mastodon to use my invite. If you want to revoke email@example.com and let somebody else have my spot, that's fine!
@tootapp I tried to sign up and got the following error:
Something went wrong, please contact the application owner: Rate limit has been exceeded for: testflight|default|APPLE_CONNECT:16053263593
@tootapp Looks like a lot of “rate limit exceeded” when trying to sign up. Any other way to get in on the beta?
@tootapp FYI. Apple upped the limit to 10,000 testers now. So you have tonnes of room. See https://itunespartner.apple.com/en/apps/faq/TestFlight%20Beta%20Testing_Using%20TestFlight
@tootapp I don’t think I am going to be able to dedicate the time to beta testing the app that I thought I would, if you’d like to give my position to someone else. (Just let me know what I need to do to drop out). Many apologies.
@tootapp Yes its been 10,000 for so long time. Also for now Test Flight will need an email to send beta but starting from next month we can have anonymous invite. So generate a link and share it anywhere. whoever clicks that can get the invite. Also its possible to have different group of testers. Like I have closed beta, open beta and the rest.
