What Android Mastodon client do people use nowadays?

From what I understand Fedilab is going to be left somewhat unmaintained, so, Tusky I guess

@amj Je crois qu'à l'époque j'utilisais Tusky mais j'étais passé sur Fedilab pour le support multi compte

@TheKinrar honêtement je l'utilise quasiment pas sur téléphone à part pour poster des photos

@TheKinrar Oh, that's sad to hear/read. Their social media is still somewhat active, but development seems to be at a standstill at the moment.

@TheKinrar Sim.

Termux :terminal: , emulador de Terminal para Sistemas Operacionais tipo Android:

Toot, uma interface de texto para o Mastodon:

@TheKinrar hahahaha connecting to a social network on a terminal on a phone makes you emanate a geeky vibe.

@TheKinrar P.S.: you can add a text-based IRC client and also use libera chat.

@olamundo You can, indeed! This seems really hard to use though

@olamundo (not the terminal itself obviously, but the IRC client in a terminal on a mobile phone)

@olamundo I know this one! I think I used it in the past. Anyway I don't do much on my phone nowadays so I don't really need anything fancy.

(Btw, I don't speak... Portuguese (right?) so I'm guessing the meaning of your sentences from their latin roots, as I speak French, that's some unusual communication too)

@TheKinrar Well, I started using the toot CLI tool especifically because I wanted minimalism.
As I also wished more webpages were accessible without JS, maybe through a pager like w3m or a simple GUI browser.

As for the languages, the three of them are Latin-based, with some mixture. I can comprehend the Latin rooted words of french, plus some that look like English (like “peuple”). The rest I inffer from context or I recall from watching French movies.
I don’t know why the anglo-saxons so often state their language is Germanic. If it is because it has other roots, you could say French is a Gaulish language.
Maybe it stems from “Britain never got invaded by the Roman empire” story?

Anyways I like to try and read French. The worst it can happen is using a French-Portuguese dictionary or LibreTranslate.

@brunofontes This is just Tusky with Pleroma support, right?

@TheKinrar @brunofontes yes, actually Tusky works w pleroma too, but Husky is better

@piggo @brunofontes Better regarding its Pleroma support or something else?

@TheKinrar @brunofontes its themed for pleroma and supports things like more than 4 poll options better, im not exactly sure what else

@TheKinrar Yes, for some reason I prefer it, but I am not exactly sure why. Maybe the little difference in the theme colors.

@TheKinrar I recently moved from Fedilab to Tusky and prefer it.

I recently switched from Fedilab to Tusky. Seems solid.

@WandelStock the UI seems quite simplistic I would say though


And the maker of the app is very cooperative, if you mis an option he will add it. (look at my thread today)
