Mastodon is the largest decentralized social network on the internet. Instead of a single website, it’s a network of millions of users in independent communities that can all interact with one another, seamlessly. No matter what you’re into, you can meet passionate people posting about it on Mastodon!
Join a community and create your profile. Find and and follow fascinating folks and read their posts in an ad-free, chronological timeline. Express yourself with custom emoji, images, GIFs, videos, and audio in 500-character posts. Reply to threads and reblog posts from anyone to share great stuff. Find new accounts to follow and trending hashtags to expand your network.
Mastodon is built with a focus on privacy and safety. Decide whether your posts are shared with your followers, just the people you mention, or the whole world. Content warnings let you hide posts containing sensitive or triggering material until you're ready to engage with them. Each community has its own guidelines and moderators to keep its members safe, and robust blocking and reporting tools help prevent abuse.
• Dark Mode: Read posts in light, dark, or true black mode
• Polls: Ask followers for their opinion and tally the votes
• Explore: Trending hashtags and accounts are a tap away
• Notifications: Get notified about new follows, replies, and reblogs
• Sharing: Post directly to Mastodon from any share sheet in any app
• Cuteness: Our mascot is an adorable elephant, and you'll see them pop up from time to time
Mastodon is a registered nonprofit and development is supported directly by your donations. There’s no advertising, no monetization, and no venture capital, and we plan to keep it that way.

Ratings and Reviews
Squeaky clean app. Don’t know what I’m doing though.
Opening this app and using it feels amazing. It’s snappy and just feels fantastic to use. Can tell this app is not a ReactNative bloat.
As a social media app, I’m confused. Is it supposed to be like Reddit with a bunch of subreddits? What network do I join with friends? I’m not sure what to do in order to jump right in as you would for a modern social media platform with traction. Would be nice to get more famous folks on here as I use Twitter to follow companies or popular people in the tech community.
Improves the On-Ramp to the Fediverse
This app allows you to easily get connected around the world, to learn and collaborate with other users of the exponentially growing Fediverse social platform network.
You can easily find a server via search, and review their descriptions. The e-mail verification process during the joining process is seamless.
Once you join a server (instance), it is easy to find and explore accounts to follow. Those accounts might follow accounts on other servers, which allows you to explore additional communities.
Your Fediverse experience can evolve with you deciding to eventually sign up to a different server that better suits your needs.
You can find more complex features on your server and on the Fediverse in general when you use a web browser to access your account, but this app provides a perfectly comfortable user experience for those new to the Fediverse.
Great Official App
It’s nice to see the devs at Mastodon finally release their own application. Simple, smooth, clean.
The only thing I would like to see, which h I’ve yet to see any practically any Mastodon app, is the ability to change the text size. Other than that, this will be my go-to from now on.
