About this app

Megalodon is a modified version of the official Mastodon Android app adding important features that are missing in the official app, such as the federated timeline, unlisted posting and an image description viewer.

Key features

- Unlisted posting: Post publicly without having your post show up in trends, hashtags or public timelines.
- Federated timeline: See all public posts from people on all other Fediverse neighborhoods your home instance is connected to.
- Custom timelines: Pin any list or hashtag to your Megalodon’s home tab to simply swipe between your favorite topics and people!
- Drafts and scheduled posts: Allows for preparing a post and scheduling it to send it automatically at a specific time.
- Pinning posts: Pin your most important posts to your profile and see what others have pinned using the “Pinned“ tab.
- Follow hashtags: See new posts from specific hashtags directly in your home timeline by following them.
- Answering follow requests: Accept or decline follow requests from your notifications or the dedicated Follow requests list.
- Delete and re-draft: The much-loved feature that made editing possible without an actual editing function.
- Language selector: Painlessly select the language for every post you make so filters and translation are working correctly.
- Translation: Easily translate posts right inside Megalodon! Only works if the feature is also available on your Mastodon Web.
- Post visibility indicator: When opening or replying to a post, a handy icon indicating the post’s visibility will be displayed.
- Color themes: Should you not like the default Pink color them (the shark is silently judging you), Moshidon’s color themes got you covered.

Moved to Mastodon earlier this year for the same reason everyone else is. This client has more features than the official Mastodon client app . It also has a nice-looking interface. It took me a while to figure out how to add accounts to my lists (you have to do it from the individual account settings, not the list settings), but *no* app seems to do that well. Also, I follow the developer on Mastodon and they seem cool 🙂

Absolutely incredible fork, I've been enjoying the alternative social media but have been on the search of a good android client for a while. This by far reaches is the best client I've used, completely for free. The design is modern, the customization is everything you'd want, and the placement of all of the little tools such as going from "Home" to the Federated feed is simply a little drop-down to keep it tidy.

Pretty decent overall, but I really wish it could be set to not obscure photos. Yes, supposedly you can, but that setting doesn't actually work. I have to jump through all kinds of hoops to view photos instead of a random blur. Extra frustrating because I'm on an instance that I chose specifically for astronomy photos.
