@wess So far I like MetaText. Could use a dark mode but so far so good

@brentcmusic thanks! Mast is pretty nice as well. I’ll check metatext out!

@brentcmusic in comparing app, you should check out Mast. It has a dark mode and a few more customization features.

@wess sounds interesting I’ll check it out thanks!

@wess I was using the official one for a while but have just started with metatext and it’s much nicer. Official iOS app maintainer refuses to implement local and federated timelines, so I wouldn’t have seen your post without metatext 😀

@WiteWulf Oh wow. Thanks. I didn’t realize it’s limitations. Firing up MetaText now.

@wess @WiteWulf As noted above, MetaText is very good. I also really like Toot!, for wonderful design, but it does not honor device text size and that is a pain for these aging eyes

@WiteWulf if you don’t mind me asking, does that mean you saw my post come up on the federated timeline? Was it through the hashtag? I’m curious as a newcomer.

@wess I was looking through the local timeline on the mastodon.cloud server/instance

@WiteWulf Awesome. That helps me know that local is .cloud not local where I live!!! 😂

@wess yeah, I believe the original intention was that instances would have themes to them or attract like minded people, and the local timeline would reflect that. But the bigger instances are so heavily populated that’s not so much the case now, although it may still be on the smaller ones. I believe mastodon.cloud has ~220k users now!
