About this app

Mastodon is the largest decentralized social network on the internet. Instead of a single website, it’s a network of millions of users in independent communities that can all interact with one another, seamlessly. No matter what you’re into, you can meet passionate people posting about it on Mastodon!

Join a community and create your profile. Find and and follow fascinating folks and read their posts in an ad-free, chronological timeline. Express yourself with custom emoji, images, GIFs, videos, and audio in 500-character posts. Reply to threads and reblog posts from anyone to share great stuff. Find new accounts to follow and trending hashtags to expand your network.

Mastodon is built with a focus on privacy and safety. Decide whether your posts are shared with your followers, just the people you mention, or the whole world. Content warnings let you hide posts containing sensitive or triggering material until you're ready to engage with them. Each community has its own guidelines and moderators to keep its members safe, and robust blocking and reporting tools help prevent abuse.

More features:

• Dark Mode: Read posts in light, dark, or true black mode
• Polls: Ask followers for their opinion and tally the votes
• Explore: Trending hashtags and accounts are a tap away
• Notifications: Get notified about new follows, replies, and reblogs
• Sharing: Post directly to Mastodon from any share sheet in any app
• Cuteness: Our mascot is an adorable elephant, and you'll see them pop up from time to time

Mastodon is a registered nonprofit and development is supported directly by your donations. There’s no advertising, no monetization, and no venture capital, and we plan to keep it that way.

I like the interface, but filters don't seem to work at all. When I use the PWA for the same instance, or when I use another client (Elk), the filters do work, so I can only assume the problem lies with this app. It would be my top choice if the filter issue were resolved.

Easy account creation. I'm not sure how it was difficult for other people. You fill out the information. It gives you two options resend or open email app. Tap open email app tap the link inside the email and you're done. Basics. Even though I definitely think this may want me to scream for Google Plus to come back if it really is as complicated on the inside as people say. But they may also be just people that don't know how to use electronics.

I thought signing up wouldn't be a deal on mobile but it truly doesn't work quite like it should. I've resent the verification twice, yet it's been an hour and the email is not in my inbox or spam folders. The app doesn't let me go back a page once it's on the verification screen - had to clear cache and storage and resubmit info to confirm the email is correct. Now it tells me the email is already in use. I'm stuck in a loop without that verification message 🤔
