I have just pushed out a new beta build! New in this version:

* Toots with content warnings and sensitive media are now hidden.
* Fixed crashes on iPads. There is still no actual iPad UI, and there won't be for a while, but the iPhone UI should now work a bit better on iPads.

@tootapp how do I get into the beta? I’ll behave, promise.

@tootapp Feedback: The black-and-yellow behind the CW makes the text a little hard to read -- consider either a thicker outline or darker shadow or toning down the yellow.

@tootapp the iPad ui is still better than a shrunken iPhone ui as I got with amaroq, so I’m actually pretty happy with this ^^

@tootapp love the app! Are there any plans to replace the favorite / boost /reply text with icons? Or is that how it’s going to stay?

@kristianramirez Not for now, no. I am experimenting with the idea that icons really are quite bad UX, since they are just weird squiggles you have to memorise, and that it's better to actually tell the user what buttons do.

It's a balancing act, though, as it can get a bit busy.

@tootapp for sure. Like i said, i love the app and the fact that it saves my place on the timeline, that’s the big one for me 😀. Coming from twitter 😱 it was just a little strange to have text rather than the icons.

@tootapp @kristianramirez Icons are only bad UX if there's no supporting text.

@zichy @kristianramirez There usually isn't, though. And having both icon and text is even more busy than having just text, so it only works in a few cases.

@tootapp this is great!

Is there a way we make the CW a little more subtle?

It seems a bit "loud" right now, especially since most uses of it seem to be content that isn't relavent to most people. mastodon.social/media/wXvWhiFi mastodon.social/media/GzknkdUQ

@tootapp really liking your app! Don’t tell anyone but I like it a lot more then all the other ones 😉 amazing work!

@tootapp will custom emojis be supported in future releases?

@danarel It's not implemented yet because it is actually quite a difficult thing to do in the app. It'll be there, but maybe not in 1.0, since I want it out already.

@tootapp understandable. The apps amazing btw. My favorite I have tried so far.

@tootapp
Resharing my first impression of your CW ui:

make the yellow a little darker to improve readability and it's perfect

@tootapp Both beta builds I’ve tried crash on launch on my iPhone 6 with iOS 10.3.2 … what other information do you need for a GitHub issue?

@tootapp Little UI weirdness with lots of threads in replies

Also the CW graphic makes it very hard to read the actual CW, especially with how often things are behind CW, a subtler option, and/or being able to have certain CW tags flag as a more obvious colour, would be rad!! chitter.xyz/media/xmKwQBPvEJuV
