Crashes a lot when loading a user's feed but lots of potential. Nice Tor integration. Nice interface. Could use a feature walk through. I couldn't find a manual, so for a new user onboarding experience, it'll be rough. It does seem to crash quite a lot when loading a user's feed. Not sure if the app windows/limits what it first pulls in, then load on demand, or it tries to load everything. Seems the latter. I have a S23 Ultra with 12/512gb and it would force close. Everything else great.

Great - With Some Growing Pains... I downloaded the app about 10 minutes ago. It's fairly intuitive to get started even without an intro. Video incorporation is amazing! A hiccup I've found already: Muting/unmuting a video when looking at the profile of a video producer seems to mute/unmute all other videos within the scroll window frame. I found VersusMedia right off the bat. It's awkward to listen to multiple songs at the same time.

Amethyst is my "go-to" client for nostr and the client I'm first to recommend to others. Nevertheless, I can't bring myself to give it 5 stars yet. I've frequently tried to inform the developer of a very frustrating issue that affects me and others who may not have the very latest phone... The app slows/freezes when I access any popular profile. I believe it fails because it's slowly fetching all that user's notes in the foreground rather than only a few at a time or with a background task.

It's crashing because of out of memory. The profile pages loads everything about the user: notes, zaps, reports, followers, etc. It's quite heavy. We are constantly adjusting it, but older devices will struggle for sure. :(
