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.

Overall look and feel is good, but I find myself not using the app as often because images take too long to load. I know that's a tough issue since they're often from different instances, but if there's not any preloading (e.g., load the next 10 unseen posts as a background process), it would greatly improve user experience if something like that were implemented.

Can't edit alt text on images-- pressing "save" results in error "no record found". Many things won't load a lot of the time-- when viewing a person's profile, their posts or posts&replies feeds stay blank. Can't view my own list of follows or followers. Spinning wheel never stops. Would be great without bugs.

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 🙂
