@cdmnky what is the best choice/are the best choices on iOS right now? (for fediverse/mastodon interfaces, I mean.)
@emacsomancer I personally use toot, it's not perfect, but it has the most features of any i've seen
too bad it's like $4
@cdmnky Thanks! There seems to be no overlap between iOS and Android clients, so I never know what to recommend for iOS. It looks nice from the screenshots/feature lists!
@cdmnky "the signal to noise ratio" is so low because you're a fucking failure at building community, Gargron. it's fine out here
@mms @132ikl @cdmnky i just want to make clear it does not “use your post history and cross-references with other users' posts”
accounts can be recommended to you for three reasons:
- the instance admin has hand-picked them for recommendation (that replaces the previous auto-follow feature)
- you directly direct “positive” interactions (boosted, faved) an account
- an account is popular on your instance (the only other personalized bit here is your default language)
i finds the usefulness of this whole thing dubious (and i strongly disagree with gargron's view of public/local TLs, especially the later) but those recommendations are not really doing anything fancy personalization-wise
@cdmnky leaving the comment that got deleted for posterity
for reference: yeah im not surprised he deleted it. doesnt stop him being a shit. im just so tired of his bullshit that i had to tell him to fuck off already lmao
whats more galling to me is the fact that he actually ignores the points i make in this comment and just goes "wehh that was rude dont do that again :(" in the response later on lol
@cdmnky I don't see the problem: you opened a feature request, but it was rejected and Gargron explain why. Of course, you have the right to not agreed with him, but anyway this is his project.
About the deleted comment, I can't say, but apparently it was rude.
@clov the problem is he censors criticism, and he's removing core features of the platform (namely local instance timelines)
my fear is that if it's removed from the app, it'll later be removed from mastodon itself, and it would kill instance communities
@cdmnky @clov Beautiful thing is you can fork it and then have something better, like people did for rich text support and longer post limits. Mastodon might crumble because he can't see past his own unmanageable instances, but people are isolating them these days anyway for being unmanageable and maybe that's the biggest irony of all: the fact he wanted to control a thing and found himself completely unable. He's going to end up a smaller Twitter while Fedi moves on
We went through this nonsense with Live Journal and Second Life.
The dominant culture hates there are spaces for fandom, queers, and others where we can't be made legible by the patriarchs.
I kind of see his point for federated timelines (room for debate though), but instance local timelines are one of the best features of the fediverse. I haven't followed the iOS app since I haven't any iDevices, so what is the point of it? Is it because app store policy enforces centralization in the client, or was this more of an optional eugen thing?
@cdmnky considering how anal Apple is about "ability to moderate content" this is unsurprising. I don't support the choice but I understand the choice
