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.

Previous version of the app was pretty awful to use, with confusing blank-slate UX and several key missing features (most notably, no dedicated UI for DMs), but I put up with it. However, the recent Material redesign is a very welcome change! The interface now feels much more at home on Android in virtually all respects. It's leagues better than before. Sadly, there's still no UI for user DMs. I also rarely (if ever) receive system notifications from this app on my S22+ for some reason.

This is a great app for me since Twitter decided to have tweet view limits. It's super easy to navigate and the app layout looks great! The one issue I have with it is not having the option to pin a post or reply to your profile. I think it will be great if that feature gets added. A lot of my friends have gotten this ever since the problem with Twitter.

The app has come a long way since I last used it, but it could still benefit working with the Megalodon team, as they have a lot of useful features like redirecting to accounts from other instances instead of opening a web browser, a polished way of switching between home, federated, and local feeds without going to search, true black mode, and accent colors.
