Ratings and Reviews
Overall it seems to function okay but why is the text so huge? It makes is difficult to use and awkward to read. I keep redownloading this app periodically because I am hoping that they might add a preference in an update somewhere and then deleting the app again because I find actually using it to be too frustrating. It might be a 5-star app under the text that can be seen from space but I can never manage to use it long enough to find out.
Just two issues
It seems like a good app. It hasn’t crashed on me. I really wish I could use it, but I primarily use Mastodon for NSFW content, and this app doesn’t offer the feature to permanently remove nsfw screens on images and videos, so I find myself clicking past protections for every single post on my feed. Secondly, there’s no feature to permanently save images to your library if you so choose.
A pretty good Mastodon app
I’ve spent a couple weeks using it and I think it’s pretty good. The dark theme is nice, the profile design is nice, how the tabs/screens are laid out, all cool features. However, one thing I’ve noticed is how there’s no boost/favourite count next to the buttons. Also, I’ve only had one notification from this app pop up in my notification centre. If you fix these, this will earn 5 stars imo. Thank you!
