Toot! v1.4.1 is out! This is just a quick bugfix release.

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

What's new:

* Instances running Pleroma should now work again. You may need to remove and re-add the instance, or reinstall the app, to make sure everything goes back to normal.
* Zooming should work again on images now.

Toot! v1.4.2 is now also out.

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

It seems neither bugfix was quite 100% complete, and had to be fixed a little bit more. So the what's new list the exact same as in 1.4.1, plus I also tried to work around a mystery crash I saw in the logs that nobody has complained about yet.

Maybe I can FINALLY get back to working on features now. Next up, probably sharing extension.

@tootapp Just tried it and it worked! There's some weird issue where it's making wrong API calls (it's requesting /api/v1/statuses/1944295047449391371/context when I tap on a post to look at its replies when it should be requesting /api/v1/statuses/9fVjYOVYhDPxMf0agq/context, if I'm reading the system logs properly) but I'm not sure if that's just the joys of running on a develop branch, or if it's a problem on Toot!'s end, or something else.

@hierarchon I'll try to look into it. I thought I got rid of all the integer ID accesses but maybe one slipped through.

@tootapp Cool, thanks :) Let me know if there’s anything I can ever do to help Toot!-on-Pleroma.

@maxi @tootapp one dark inspired by the dark (standard) mastodon theme. And one black theme where you can choose the highlight color.

@tootapp it does zoom again, but I cannot move the zoomed image around to see other parts than the center. Is it just me?

@bestform Guh. I absolutely hate this.

File an issue, especially if you can figure out how to reproduce reliably.

@tootapp Configurable multiple columns for iPad, maybe? ^_^ I really enjoy the web UX offering me Notifications, Home, and Federated simultaneously.

@porsupah I’m planning on some kind of better iPad interface, but that will be a little while yet.

@tootapp Woohoo!

If there’s a way to add image description in the share sheet too, that would be awesome!

@tootapp sharing extension is cool i guess but i really just wanna be able to get my follow requests settled more than anything, or generally have following work a little more similarly to Tootdon, where it tells you at the notif screen for new followers if you're already following them back or not. I just know these features would be more beneficial then me being able to share things more efficiently than currently available.

@tootapp i also just wanna say that this is a good app and I appreciate the development you've done so far, i just think its a better course of action to fix these primary methods of interaction with instances. As someone who does use multiple accounts and often enjoys changing my bio/avi/whatever, its more difficult on Toot! than on just opening the web browser or opening tootdon, which defeats the purpose of having the app in the first place. Also, I'm not sure if instances provide this information or not, but I'm on an instance with like a 1k text limit, and toot always assumes the default text limit. Can we get that fixed?

@tootapp don't make me swap apps i really like this app n ASSUME you aren't taking my data, ur my only hope rn (´・ω・`)

@cute Also, not taking any data for sure. I think I’d just get stressed about it if I had it. I don’t want to know what my users do, too much pressure!

@cute @tootapp Custom text limits not being supported is more of a my fault

That being said, the server is more than capable of validating the text limit, so the app is free to just let users send stuff even if it's "in the red"

@Gargron @tootapp oh I'm well aware of that. I'm not worried about being a little bit in the red. Toot already allows you to send the message im more worried about just sending 2k text when i'm typing 1k. Which, in toot is easier because i already know my text limits so i just break it up, but ye. good to kno

@cute Well, at the moment the main requested features are sharing and follow requests, so that’s probably next. Having to do some pretty strict prioritising with what little time I have for working on it though so other profile editing is a very high cost/low return type situation.

@tootapp Hm. But it is a good usability feature. I understand not wanting to put dev time in the wrong place, but being able to change my bio etc. etc. are still pretty important stuff to the core of the mastodon experience. High cost yes, but its a basic feature that should be implemented before sharing features. What exactly are you planning for the extension of sharing features actually cus I do share my toots a lot and post links on here.

@tootapp like i don't need full implimentation of all the features in the edit profile page. All im asking for is edit avatar, edit bio, edit display name, change header. Tootdon does this and then for everything else it just opens up in safari the edit profile page, which is completely acceptable.

@tootapp also profile metadata would put you another step ahead of tootdon, since 1) you already display it and 2) tootdon doesn't do that

@tootapp cool thing i'd prefer before sharing extensions, implement lists. I want to keep track of my girlfriends and boyfriend's more easily.

And I mean obviously if you're already in the process I understand I'm not saying drop your work, its just that there are plenty of other things native to mastodon that are also unique to the platform that would be better first implemented to the app than just making it another slightly nicer looking twitter clone type deal.

@cute It’s the other way around, it’s adding Toot! to the list of apps for sharing from elsewhere.

Also, there is still a lot of stuff missing that is more central to the experience. Videos and gifs still don’t work smoothly for one, and for the average user that’s encountered many time more often than editing profile.

@tootapp I love your app it’s so well done, is there a way to incorporate making lists to group people you follow?
