Are the iOS Mastodon apps worth the cost? Asking for a friend that recently returned to the platform for the first time since the iPhone 3GS and is still holding off new app purchases while the defrosting from cryosleep wears off.
@max there are some open source ones: https://github.com/tootsuite/documentation/blob/master/Using-Mastodon/Apps.md#ios---open-source
@ben It's odd but I almost would rather a paid app, because that perceived buy-in would help me with perceived value over the hump that it's easy enough to just to keep leaving a browser tab open to my instance as I have been doing since forever.
Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
