Version 1.1.15 provides an important bug fix affecting some users' notifications.
• Fixes a bug where sometimes notification content is absent from all notifications. If you still experience this problem after updating, this should resolve itself after logging out and logging in again, switching instances, or changing a notification setting (simply toggling one off and on again should do the trick).
Ratings and Reviews
This app is awful. It’s buggy, recalcitrant, and never works when you want it to. The buttons are to small, so you never hit the correct one. You want to show the photo when it’s nsfw, but it goes to the person’s profile instead or opens up the full post. It has issues loading and saving photos.
But by far, the worst thing is posting. If you want to post more than ten or twelve photos, good luck. I don’t know what this error 500 is, but get it fixed! There is always something wrong, and it rarely has an update to make it better! So much time wasted in frustration trying to make it work.
Overall it seems to function okay but why is the text so huge? It makes is difficult to use and awkward to read. I keep redownloading this app periodically because I am hoping that they might add a preference in an update somewhere and then deleting the app again because I find actually using it to be too frustrating. It might be a 5-star app under the text that can be seen from space but I can never manage to use it long enough to find out.
A pretty good Mastodon app
I’ve spent a couple weeks using it and I think it’s pretty good. The dark theme is nice, the profile design is nice, how the tabs/screens are laid out, all cool features. However, one thing I’ve noticed is how there’s no boost/favourite count next to the buttons. Also, I’ve only had one notification from this app pop up in my notification centre. If you fix these, this will earn 5 stars imo. Thank you!
