@snype That's unfortunate, and I don't have a guess why that's happening.

If you know how to use a terminal and Android's "ADB", you could try running `adb logcat` in your desktop terminal while your phone is plugged in via USB (in developer mode). Then let us know what the logs say at the moment it crashes. That's the only way we could diagnose and fix this. — @staltz

@Parnikkapore With a file, how would you easily recover your account once (for example) your phone explodes? It would put emphasis on securing the file elsewhere. With iOS (Manyverse is coming to iOS), the filesystem isn't very gracious, and most users would opt for iCloud. Something similar on Android. — @staltz

@snype Did a popup appear to report the crash? We'd like to get any crashes fixed asap

@masto_raph @switchingsocial@mastodon.at It is exactly scuttlebutt!
Scuttlebutt is like HTTP, and Manyverse is like Firefox.

@Shufei You mean something like Manyverse for Desktop? When we have more funding, we might do that. For now, Patchwork is fully compatible with Manyverse: github.com/ssbc/patchwork

@blacklight447 @switchingsocial@mastodon.at Works over Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, two different types of internet servers (Rooms and Pubs), and internet P2P (kademlia distributed hash table)
