Ratings and Reviews
When trying to pick a Mastodon client, I have to admit this one first jumped out at me because of how cute the icon is. But the reviews sold me on it, and I'm really pleased with this client. It's very straightforward and intuitively organized. It's easy to find whatever I want. The only feature requests I have are a character counter so I can tell how close I am to the limit instead of just guessing; and a way to access the extra emojis that are available in the browser version. (This second one is less of a big deal because you can manually insert them if you know the name of the emoji.) Overall I'm really happy with Mastoot and hope it continues to just get better and better!
As far as I know, I have used all of the Mastodon apps, and I certainly want to support them all. But as my daily go-to app, Mastoot has clearly won me over. Immediately apparent is the very smooth and fluid scrolling. Downloading posts and images while scrolling is awesome. On the Home feed, a small notification will appear to let me know how many unread posts there are left. Notifications are supported within iOS. Terminology is consistent with the Mastodon desktop. Supports search by hashtag. And each week seems to include a new update.
There are two times that one seems to leave the app … when I edit my profile (opens a browser window), and when I click on a #hashtag in a person’s profile. (which “should” open the in-app search window but instead goes to the Mastodon web app login).
The developer is clearly invested to make this the best app out there, and it shows. Nice work.
Great app, definitely the best client I’ve used.
I’ve used 4 different Mastodon clients at this point, from the official Mastodon app, to Tootle, Mammoth, to Metatext and this is definitely the cleanest, easiest to use client so far.
Very well lashed out, easy to customize and makes all of the best features of Mastodon readily available. I love the option in the explore section to go to my local timeline or the federated feed, something many clients make difficult to navigate.
One thing I really need to see in the app is a hashtag button on the main keyboard when drafting a post. Having to navigate to my special characters menu when hashtagging is the only reason this review is at 4 stars instead of 5. I’ve submitted a feature request, so fingers crossed we’ll see this in an update soon.
