Is anyone using an iPhone mastodon app that you love?

@eldang Amaroq has been pretty solid since I started here 2+ years ago. I don’t know what features it’s missing or not, but no ads, everything very simple and reliable. Ive been very pleased, but I don’t know what is out there either. Can’t say I’ve get the need to look.

@Fritillaria2 I'm currently using Amaroq, and generally felt the same, but I want custom emoji support, and now that w.e. has polls I'm noticing that its way of rendering those (i.e. showing the text but no poll options) is unintelligible.

@eldang Mast is the best alternative I’ve found. Not as clean and simple as Amaroq but bearable and it’ll handle custom emoji. Not sure if it does polls yet but I’d expect so.

@eldang
I used to use amaroq before I switched to android, and it worked better than any of the others at the time but I hear it hasn't been updated in a while now so idk

@eldang Frustratingly, no. Every one I’ve tried so far (Amaroq, Tootdon, Mast, and Tootle) have either been buggy to the point of it not being worth it to use, or don’t support the features I want (alt text for photos is the main one).
And in the case of, I think it’s Tootle, potentially sketchy data collection practices? :think_disappointed:

@eldang I really like amaroq despite the fact it hasn’t been updated in months.

@eldang wait I just checked it was updated within the week, so that’s cool!

@FirstProgenitor sadly the latest version still doesn't support custom emoji or polls.

@geske I'm trying that one out right now. So far our it's beating my old standby Amaroq by letting me put custom emoji in toots :_earth: :battery_medium: :cactuar_face: :cowsquid: :earth_pacific: :flan_writing: :gaysper: :moomin_hmm: :ms_blue_heart: :themoreyouknow:
