Most Up to Date and Feature Supporting App for Mastodon

I’ve been using this app since the beta-only stage and it’s always been on the cutting edge of Mastodon support. It has stayed that way with frequent updates. As the developer stresses, it’s very customizable allowing the user to control what features are displayed and where in addition to general appearance. I prefer to leave almost everything as default except for hiding all controls when reading. It’s great! I also customized the swipe actions to quickly call translation for multilingual support. Mona syncs timeline, notifications, and many settings across your devices and supports macOS natively. Yes, it’s a paid app but well worth the one-time cost for folks who are serious about taking advantage of all the Fediverse has to offer.

Great app, but need some slight work with voiceover.

I had to call Apple accessibility so that I could get a little assistance visual wise with this app. When you find a persons profile, their picture, along with their followers, who they follow, and the follow button are all in one box. Voiceover is not able to read the follow button. You have to swipe left to the more button, then swipe right to the send a request button to the follower you want to follow. When you turn, voiceover off, the button shows up as blue. When you turn voiceover on the button shows up as gray. Voiceover is not reading this. Other than that small complaint, this app is very good. I recommend it to anyone who wants to use this app.

Absolutely fantastic--both dev and app

When Musk took over Twitter, I knew it wouldn't be long before the place became an even more horrible cesspool, so I migrated to Mastodon.

While Mastodon's basic browser interface is fine if you were used to Twitter's regular interface, the advanced interface with columns left a lot to be desired.

I tried five or six apps that gave features I used to rely on in Tweetdeck, but each of them had design issues that were too glaring to ignore.

Until Mona. Participating in the beta showed me that the dev knew how to make a solid, sleek interface on both mobile and desktop to cater to almost every need you could have. There's SO MUCH CUSTOMIZATION HERE! And not once--even during beta--have i had crashes or errors (save for an error that is on Mastdon's side, not Mona's).

If you want columns, you got 'em. If you don't, you don't have to! Everything from URL colors to icon order and text font is customizable. And the beta showed that the dev is quick to respond to anyone's needs.

Seriously, give Mona a try before anything else, and I'd bet you'll fall in love.
