@JPEG yes, they work perfectly. The problem is in the home one

@JPEG I’m still getting the issue even though I have old data in my home stream

@JPEG since last Mast update the application crashes when trying to load my home stream. It’s not random it happens every time. However if I click and hold the application icon I can see a preview of my home stream. Pretty weird. I already uninstalled and reinstalled the app.

As an insomniac myself, getting a good night rest is like waking from a nightmare, feeling relieved and safe. It normally happens when things are improving

@JPEG I’m not sure. When it happens and I come back to the app it does not happen again. Next time it happens I’ll send a report and notify you.

@JPEG the load more crash has happened to me from time to time in fosstodon.org

@JPEG Thanks!! I’m asking because, although I’m mostly a backend/web frontend engineer I’m starting to do some hobby stuff on mobile.

@JPEG Overall the app is extremely fluid and responsive. Great job!!! If I can ask, what tech are you using to build it? No worries if you don’t want to share it, just asking out of curiosity

@JPEG Just found another thing: some of the emojis in the usernames do not load, they appear as :something: I think that the ones that fail are the ones configured in the instance, but I’m not 100% sure that only those ones are affected

@JPEG You’re welcome. If I find more issues would you like me to report them somewhere?

@JPEG The first time it crashed was when clicking on an image that I think it gave a 404. I could not reproduce it again though. The other crash, which is more consistent is when I click on a twitter username like @srxavi@twitter.com

@JPEG The app is looking really well! Besides a couple of crashes it’s pretty amazing. I have one question though: do you have any plans to make the feed header and selector configurable to be in one line? In an iPhone 8 it takes a little to much space for my taste. Not a big deal tough

Hey everyone, a new build of my new mastodon app is now here, and it's better than ever!

You can get it over at: testflight.apple.com/join/hYFR

Also, to all our friends from India who've just joined, hello! This is the app you want for iOS. Aiming for it to be the gold standard. 💙

(Please boost to raise awareness, a new mastodon app is coming)

Donated to #GNOME.

It's obvious that to be a patent troll. one's moral compass has to already be greatly compromised, but going after free software is cartoonishly scummy behavior.

These trolls of course don't understand the whole ideological aspect of free software & that there are people from all over the world willing to chip in to defend it.

They think they're going against some software developers in a basement, in reality they're against a worldwide movement.

They're about to loose.

"Did it hurt?"

"Did what hurt?"

"When you fell from heaven."

"…It was the single most painful experience of my life. Tossed away like chaff, my wings… oh my beautiful wings! Burned away… gone in an instant! Hurtling toward this rock, we made mountains where we struck, my siblings and I.
Never to fly again, never to rise and soar, but left to walk and climb this rock forever. Every moment here is an agonizing reminder of what I've lost. Yes, it hurt, more than you can possibly imagine."

"Tell a scary story!"
"Once upon a time, leaders were vain and corrupt-"
"That's not fiction!"
"- and monsters only concerned with gold were burning-
"Still not fiction."
"- the world. And..."
"And?"
"And people lost hope and gave up."
"Oh."
"Mm."
"I'll make sure that's fiction!"
