Why Ice Cubes?
Mastodon, Mammoth, Ice Age, Ice, Ice Cubes, Ice Cubes are like separated communities, but all together in the same glass we all share, the Fediverse.

Hello, I'm an open source, SwiftUI, Mastodon client for iOS devices made by @dimillian. And a collaborative one too, anyone can send me their features requests or even commit and participate on the project repository here: github.com/Dimillian/IceCubesA

Currently the app is in open beta on Testflight and can be downloaded here: testflight.apple.com/join/tqI3

Can't wait to see you in app!

And here is some screenshots of the app. You can completely customize the theme and make your own!

The 1.3.7 is out and finally fixes the crash that would sometimes happen when resuming the app from the background!

Removed the ... menu indicator (as you can swipe and long press anyway to display the menu) to replace it with a thread indicator when the Toot is part of a thread or a reply.

I was like, why I get so many notifications and then I saw @stux decided to boost that OG Toot :p

Changelog for the hotfix 1.3.6 coming soon:

- Mitigate / fix a crash when the app is coming back from background.
- Add Open Dyslexic and Hyper-Legible font in display settings.
- Fix links being non interactive in the about section of profiles.
- New settings to open the in app browser in the reader mode.

Hello @icecubesapp users! 👋🏻

Now that we can choose custom fonts, I’d love to see what people are using. Yes, even you comic sans fans!

I’m using a Google font called Andika, as you can see in my screenshot.

Two things I can tell you:

- There is one known crash that can happen sometimes if there is new posts while the timeline is scrolled to the top. I hope to find a workaround but this is backed deep in SwiftUI, the framework used to build the app.
- A full panel of settings for haptic feedbacks is coming soon!

1.3.4 is coming soon:

- Highlight mentions in your timeline.
- New setting in content settings to disable boost duplications in your timeline.
- New swipe actions in timeline to reply, favorite or boost.
- 3 new icons from Dan van Moll.
- Various performances improvements.
- Added British localizations.

🚀

You could swipe vertically but now you can swipe horizontally too!

Idea: make the instance part of username clickable so you can quickly access the local timeline of their instance and pin it 🤓

Next update will refine timeline position management:

- Better behaviour when pulling to refresh, coming back from background. It'll be less jumpy and more accurate.
- Your home timeline position will be remembered when switching to other timeline (trending, lists, etc..) and even switching account!

I finally got manual List scroll manipulation down to a science in #SwiftUI. Removed all my dirty workaround, and now it behave exactly as it should!

How do you read your timeline?

Select client app share on mastodon.social based on a sample of ~3600 posts per day from its local timeline. (~600 posts taken every 4 hours).

@ivory moving on up to ~9% or so. @icecubesapp getting close to ~2%. @elk maybe 1%. The official iOS app steadily declining (presumably as new third party iOS apps continue to enter release or betas.)

(There are a ton of application_names, so I filtered out to just look at a few. Web remains steady-ish around 35%)

The new @icecubesapp update solves all my complaints. This is a great app.

To everyone asking, its‘s only when scrolling up unread posts. (When you see the unread count indicator)

So did I went overboard with the haptic feedback as you scroll up your timeline? I personally love it a lot. It almost feel like paper.

With the latest update to @icecubesapp, it has solidified its place as top client for me. The timeline holding its position is a huge UI win, but _look_ at these timeline fonts. 😍 Fantastic work, @dimillian!
