Getting ready to take 1Feed.app out of private beta and allow public sign-ups!

Rather than going for a generic "sign up" button, I've decided to switch it up a bit to stress just how easy it is to get started with 1Feed:

It seems like I've been blocked from sending 1Feed invites via Twitter DMs for a little while, they seem to think I'm a bot cause I'm sending lots of similar links out 😅

1Feed invites will resume when I can send DMs again!

Just pushed the final 1Feed release before opening up 1Feed to 🎉public signup🎉

It brings small improvements as well as important tweaks to the onboarding process.

I'll be inviting the rest of the early access users this week before opening it up!

@rsheftel I've added you to the waitlist! I'm actually planning on letting a bunch of people in this afternoon so you should get access in a few hours (I'll message you here).

The Twitter button was just a quick way for me to throw up a landing page without having to build a whole staged invite system, but I'm actually going to be removing it in a few days and replacing it with a normal sign up button!

@lxzio From reddit.com/r/privatelife/comme:

> The following in addition to message metadata is now exploitable commodity for Facebook Inc.: messaging, calling, Status, groups (including group name, group picture, group description), payments or business features; profile photo, "about" information; whether you are online, when you last used our Services (your "last seen"); and when you last updated your "about" information.

@fatboy this might be an unpopular opinion but I actually prefer the new Firefox for Android, although it does seem a bit less stable and maybe should still be in the beta phase.

Anyway, if you install Firefox Nightly, you can install any add-ons you want:

It's not open source at the moment, but eventually once it's stable and has some traction I hope to open source it and have a business model similar to Plausible Analytics.

Hey everyone! I'm a solo programmer, currently working on 1feed.app. It's my attempt to bring the pleasures of RSS to a more mainstream audience and help people take back their attention :)

As part of that, I want to support the open web and decentralised platforms, so I've made this Mastodon account, and I'll be posting all future tweets here as well!
