Bean is the best way to explore the Lemmy and the threadiverse with a beautiful UI designed for iPhone and iPad, and with a number of themes, customisation, and view options to choose from, you'll be right at home with Bean.
Gestures make it a breeze to navigate around. Upvote or downvote, comment, bookmark, or collapse an entire comment thread with a single swipe. If that's not your thing, you can toggle these in the settings or turn on the full screen swipe to go back.
Bean also features a beautiful media viewer that displays images, GIFs, and videos. If a post has multiple images, you can simply swipe through them all. Uploading images is also fully integrated with Lemmy's pict-rs service so you can rest assured that your images are safely hosted on your instance and not a third party service.
When creating new posts or comments, Bean offers you a comprehensive markdown editor to make crafting the perfect hot take easy.
With privacy in mind, Bean connects directly to your chosen Lemmy instance, only sharing your authentication token with our push notification server if you opt-in to notifications.
And, with Bean Pro you can unlock even more features, themes, and customisation options!
- Multi-Account Support: Connect to as many instances and accounts as you'd like.
- Push Notifications: Our notification server will keep an eye on your Lemmy notifications.
- Grouped Communities: Group your favourite communities together into a single fee.
- Premium Themes: Gain access to a bunch more beautiful themes.
- Accent Colour Options: Make Bean your own by changing the accent colour.
- Comment Themes: Change the indicators to match your style.
- Custom App Icons: Access a tonne of app icons, designed by various artists.
- More Font Options: Choose from more fonts including Avenir and Menlo.

Ratings and Reviews
Great Lemmy Client
Bean is an aesthetically pleasing, feature-rich client for browsing Lemmy. It’s made even better by the fact that the developer responds quickly to posts about bugs and feature requests, and he seems truly intent on making this a great app!
My current Lemmy app.
Bean is my current daily Lemmy app. Very complete features, including notifications. Still some work to do (especially in the groups) if it’s already great.
After using this app for 30 seconds I got the lifetime membership. This is an app I want to support. It's so nice I highly recommend it. I've tried nearly every other app and they just don't work for me. I don't like em but this one is awesome
