What’s New

Version 2020.4.1

Hey. This update fixes a bug with images not uploading! Sorry for that! It certainly feels like a TestFlight update, but I assure you it’s not :)

In addition I tweaked:
- Pull to refresh no longer causes multiple calls to the service.
- Links open as they used to instead of a modal. So now you can back swipe like a champion!
- Some other last minute tweaks… because I do that.

Here are the previous release notes:

Hello dear users!

I'm back with another update for you all. It’s taken a bit longer than I wanted… life threw some random curve balls!
So, let’s get to it:

- You can now remove your posts so they no longer show in the timeline. Made a weird reply? Just remove it and start again. It’s a right swipe away.
- Add the Discover “Tagmoji” when composing your post. This means it will get added to the correct Discover More section on Just tap the “#” icon in the post screen.
- Tweaked the Appearance section, which now works instantly! BOOM. KAAPOW! Have a play and find your favourite combination.
- Added a font size setting so you can refine your preferred font size for the timeline, reply and post screens, on top of the system settings. Need 60 points of font size…? Do it!
- Added a status check, which will alert you if the service is down or not. It’ll also offer to show you the status page on the “More” screen.
- Fixes an issue when you’re following over 1,000 followers and your reply pane became… S… L… O… W. No more!
- Fixed an issue with account switching.
- Some wording tweaks and a sprinkle of emoji.
- Fix a handful of wonderful bugs!
- Overall UI tweaks and fixes here and there.

That's it for now and no doubt I forgot a few things.

Happy blogging and see you soon with another update :)

- Vincent
