Ratings and Reviews
if i could collapse the timeline sidebar to just its icons, it'd be a perfect client for putting to one side of my screen
ok app, but many accessibility issues for the blind user
well, it seems like a useful enough application. However, As a totally blind individual dependent on a screen reader, it is very far from reasonably useful. None of the buttons are labeled (including any of the popups) and the text edit field has no screen reader echo feedback. Since I use a mac here (no windows), I can either try to use this app without knowing completely what’s there or try using a browser on the Mastodon site, which is even more nightmarish with too much eye candy going on. The developers need to correct these issues post haste. btw, this is the *ONLY* Mastodon capable app I found on the Apple App Store for desktop and laptop machines. Have a heart fellas! There are many of us blind users out here and all we wish is a little consideration for our needs.
This is a good start for a Mastodon app. Still has some kinks to work out - I ran into bugs trying to view and edit my lists, for example. And custom emoji are not yet displayed or available for tooting. But the overall interface is good. I'm looking forward to seeing where Whalebird goes.
Developer Response ,
Instance custom emojis are displayed in version 2.1.0.
