#MastoTips

"I feel naked without a weapon," I mutter.

"A gun, or stone axe?" I try to laugh.
"No, your natural weapons: endurance and patience."
"Um. No."
"Then you are naked."

Best way to move instances on #Mastodon:

On your OLD account:

1. Export your follows, mutes and blocks: go to Settings, then Data Export, then download the CSV files (you do NOT need to request an archive to do this!)

2. Set your old account to redirect to the new one: go to Settings, then Edit Profile, then "Move To A Different Account" (at bottom of screen)

On your NEW account:

"Yalp Store lets you download apps directly from Google Play Store as apk files. It can search for updates of installed apps and lets you search for other apps. Yalp saves downloaded apks to your default download folder."

Yalp is available from F-Droid.

You can use the Play Store without a Google account but you cannot download paid apps. Yalp also handles the updates too.

#Manyverse is an Android app for the #Scuttlebutt social network:

manyver.se

Unlike traditional social networks, Scuttlebutt has no servers. Members store all their personal data on their own computer or phone, and connect directly to their friends' devices in order to update statuses. Scuttlebutt also works offline.

It's currently available on @fdroidorg and Google Play. (Note it's still in beta and many features are missing.)
