Ivory for Mastodon by Tapbots

Universal Apps

Before Elon Musk ruined Twitter, in part by eliminating third-party apps, I was a big fan of Tweetbot. After the Twitter-pocalypse, I stayed away from social media for awhile (except for Reddit), until I found out that most of the tech folks I enjoyed following had moved over to Mastodon.  There are a variety of apps for accessing the network including a native app, Mona, Ice Cubes, Mammoth and Radiant but the one I chose was Ivory for Mastodon by Tapbots, the same developers behind Tweetbot.

Features include:

  • ¬†Beautiful design
  • ¬†Fast performance and¬† smooth scrolling
  • ¬†Many theme and app icon options
  • Support for multiple accounts
  • ¬†Create and view content warnings
  • ¬†Create and participate in polls
  • ¬†Easily search for and post gifs
  • Customizable push notifications and viewable notifications tab
  • View post statistics for the day and graph for the week in the stats tab
  • Powerful mute filters with regex support
  • ¬†Ability to follow hashtags
  • ¬†Bookmark posts to refer back to privately
  • ¬†View local and federated timelines as well as trending posts
  • ¬†Powerful timeline filters to quickly show/hide posts of different criteria
  • ¬†Never lose your place in the timeline across Ivory on multiple devices including iOS, iPadOS, and macOS.
