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.

Toot! v1.8.2 is now also out.

This one continues polishing the iPad interface, fixing a few issues:

* Using Toot! in split screen mode should work now.
* The sidebar is a little bit narrower on smaller iPads.
* Boosting from a different account shows the right icon now.
* As a bonus, double tap to zoom finally works!

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 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?
