It's time for Toot! v1.8!
The big news this time is that there is finally a dedicated iPad interface, which is designed to use space a bit better, and allow more comfortable control.
In smaller updates, there is also now a switch to open all links in Safari, and if you long-press the action buttons on toots, you can perform them from different accounts.
This version also adds the filtering for gab. This basically means that should gab ever launch a Mastodon instance on one of their domains (which I'm not fully convinced they'll ever manage to), it will not be possible to add it to Toot!, or log in to it.
I noticed in the original announcement though that people thought it would also filter out content from gab, which I didn't originally intend to do. But since the reaction was generally so positive, I though I couldn't disappoint, so I added this also. This is optional, enabled by default, but can be turned off in settings.
Turning that option off will not make it possible to log in to gab instances, though. That will remain blocked, as I will not be providing a service to white supremacists.
@tootapp thank you! <3
@tootapp Excellent. Thank you!
@tootapp Thank you!
@tootapp Always thank you for the great app! Do you have any plan to add an option to choose a web browser to open links, like Firefox or Chrome? https://github.com/DagAgren/toot/issues/167#issuecomment-427735126
@tootapp “Filter awful servers...currently only Gab.” Ha nice! I wasn’t aware he ran a instance. I knew he ran his own thing that he liked to spam all over twitter. 🙄
@Louwestin They're planning to, but haven't actually done it yet. But we're ready for that now.
@tootapp Oh gez... Well I guess he admires Mastodon enough to use it.
@tootapp THANK YOU
@tootapp you discriminate. You are no better than those you complain about. What a hypocrite, your work is inclusive only if you agree with my ideals. Gab like any other service has good and bad. You generalize an entire segment of users due to your personal bias. Like the filter, default on I agree their content can be off the script. But block? Since you want to revive the Third Reich you may as well block librem.one and pawoo,artalley and mast.social. #freedom
@mpg Deep breaths, man, deep breaths.
@tootapp ROTFLMAO lol you have to laugh, how can you not? 😆
