What’s New

Version 2023.1

Well, it's time again for an update. This one has been in the making since November. Thank you to all that have helped me build what it is. I'll keep it short...

- [NEW] Now you can combine pinned topics (emoji) and they'll load extra fast in one view. Just head on over to Discover->Explore and get pinning.
- [NEW] Pinned profiles. Any profile can be pinned to a special list, meaning you can keep up to date with certain accounts when using a busy timeline, or just check in without following.
- [NEW] Better push notification experience, using the new Gluon Sync server... which allows for a few extra things like:
- [NEW] Extra profile data. Now you can add an accent colour and/or emoji to your profile, by tapping you profile image. This is shown to other users of Gluon. It's pretty fun and adds a little extra sparkle to the community.
- [NEW] When replying you can now "reply all" all at once. Yeah, it's nice. In addition, the app will now show the names of the users also (previously it was just the username).
- [Lots more] Oof, there is so much here I forgot what I added haha! For example "Reply all" when replying to a thread, making the user picker nicer, reloading the conversation when replying (so your reply shows up), more icons, better theme colours and more accents (I know!), inline images when replying, allowing hashtags to me muted (yeah!), reader mode when opening links, copying html/text of post (I know!)... and and and.

And because I don't want to bore you even more, there are many under-the-hood tweaks, including some UI changes throughout the app, new Nitpicky options (because!), and many other things just to make it nicer for everyone. Oh wait, I just gave you loads above. But there is more!

Thank you to everyone that has provided feedback and is using Gluon as their go-to app for Can't wait to make the app better throughout the year.

The official works great, but if you want more customizable options and design, Gluon is wonderful. A dedicated developer keeps Gluon up-to-date with new features and fixes.
