@iLikeAltitude The work we'll do in the grant should also introduce partial replication, which means you wouldn't have to download everything, and wouldn't have to fear who you're connecting to and how much data they have, because you'd download always "at most X megabytes"

@iLikeAltitude Yes, initial sync unfortunately can take hours and require at least 1GB of space. It absolutely depends who you sync with (and how much data they have). We mentioned it in the Manyverse blog here: manyver.se/blog/early-days

Note: we got a grant from NGI Pointer to work on onboarding and initial sync performance. This will improve drastically within 1 year. More: manyver.se/blog/2020-10-update

Should be easy to fix the Apple App Store release, Apple just asked for tiny tweaks on the tutorial screen.

New version 0.2009.4 rolling out with new features and fixes
🎉 Feature: highlight new and unread content in the Feed
🎉 Feature: play audio messages attached to posts
🎉 Feature: Profile screen has "go to Private chat" button

@lutindiscret Our OpenCollective uses an Europe-based host (in Belgium), and the currency is EUR, so we don't think there is any US dependency. Would that be enough for you? We can also consider LiberaPay, but it comes with some administrative overhead (i.e. handling and managing multiple donation collection sites)

We strive for full transparency of our work, so we're sharing our project finances.

New version 0.2007.3 rolling out today gradually with:

✅ Bug fix: blobs purging settings should work
🔷 A lot of small tweaks

@racuna I think that's a question for Planetary, since they launched after Manyverse. Also, they're using a different implementation of SSB (in Go, with support for the alternative GabbyGrove feed format). Manyverse is mostly using the same technology as Patchwork (the most popular client) and aims to be compatible with that.
