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 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.
@samhenri There seems to be some weird issue with mastodon.cloud. Not sure what, possibly something on their end?
@tootapp Ah, but just seeing you list all those things makes me even more convinced this is the app to follow.
I’d also suggest the ability to maintain timeline position when tapping “Show more” when returning to the app after a few hours. 🙂
@NateBarham Well, it maintains it in one direction, but not the other. But, there is an issue open for it, I hope to make possible to maintain position in either direction.
@tootapp Yes. That’s what I mean, I guess. I come back, there are lots of new posts above, I tap, it loads them all *below* my current position so I have to scroll down to the “show more” button to read what I missed. My brain always want them to load *above* so I have to scroll up to get to “now”.
Anyway, glad to hear you’re looking into it. 🙂🍻
