Mastodon for iPhone and iPad for Negative User Reviews

First run experience awful - can’t log inWhen I start up the app, it shows me two buttons - one for ‘getting started’ and the other for ‘logging in’. However, both buttons lead to the ‘getting started’ dialog box, and because the mastodon server I’m on isn’t listed there, I can’t progress. Getting the login right seems a pretty basic requirement for a federated system, no? turns out there is an invisible mechanism for logging in - thank you to the developers for pointing it out, but you could do with much better discovery. Login and registration should look different IMO.Version: 1.4.0

Okay, but could be betterI wish for there to be the option to hide the number of favourites a toot has. I’m not looking for a popularity contest.Version: 1.4.0

Falsely accused of SpamI can’t login to my account. Someone falsely accused me of Spam. I have submitted an appeal?. Still not herd back from support..Version: 1.4.0

New User Un-FriendlyI downloaded this app as a brand new user of Mastodon, and I am totally confused. I can’t search for any servers—only hashtags and people. How am I supposed to look for people to follow if I don’t even know what servers I want to follow? It would be helpful to have some sort of tutorial or help setting up new accounts via mobile..Version: 1.0.8

How janky can it get?I like the Fediverse idea and ideals. That said, I've now had to reset my account or password on Matodon at least 3 times. This means at least once I totally lost all my followers and followings. Further, if one uses a very secure browser (I kind of thought Mastodon was at least a bit into privacy and security) then it's impossible to logon. COMMENT ON FEDIVERSE: Don't be foolish, the illiberal and corporate actors will, and probably are, use the Fediverse to further their anti democracy agendas and for greed. Be vigilant. Free speech requires responsibility..Version: 1.4.3

DifficultHard to understand and a version has not been made compatible with iPad..Version: 1.0.8

Why can’t I reply?Why is it impossible to reply to other people. You try to type and the whole thing freezes!.Version: 1.0.8

We need the local and federated timelinesPlease listen to the community..Version: 1.3.0

Can’t log inThere doesn’t seem to be any way to enter my email address or password to log into a server; there’s no keyboard displayed, only an option to scan text..Version: 1.4.0

Where is the local feed and the fediverseWhen using mastodon on browser to have 3 feeds home- people I follow, local- the server I’m on and fediverse- all servers that are federated to the one I’m hosted by. On the app I only have home so am missing lots of content.Version: 1.0.8

Doesn’t workI’d love to try your app, unfortunately, when it comes time to select a community the app times out every single time. This doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in your ability to get the rest of the process right if I can’t even use your product..Version: 1.3.1

ConfusingThreading is very confusing in this app. Only a fraction of the replies to a post are displayed with no indication that there might be more (if there is), or how to get to them. Plus, the thread indicators (thin lines linking posts that are related to each other) are completely absent so you never know if a post is a response to the previous one or if it’s a breakout thread… very bad in big threads! Virtually all other clients handle this nicely, but not the « official » app which the lead mastodon dev helps designing. I don’t understand..Version: 1.3.0

Can’t log in to othersIt’s ok but if your mastadon instance isn’t listed you can’t login!.Version: 1.3.0

Struggling to get inOpened an account via safari and the app won’t let me log into it cant really tell what it’s like without being able to even get in.Version: 1.3.1

Feeds are not distinctThere is nothing to indicate the distinction of Fediverse from Home or Local time lines. Perhaps I am missing some hidden setting?.Version: 1.4.0

Hides important features from you that other apps supportThis app intentionally hides your instance's local and federated timelines from you, which is a primary way to meet new people on your instance. it's trying to be more like twitter by hiding core features that every other mastodon app supports. comments others have made about this on the issue tracker have been deleted and discussion shut down, and the lead developer is uninterested in feedback from people who actually use mastodon. use any other app..Version: 1.0.0

Good start, minimal experienceThe app has a clean interface but is missing the local and federated timelines so it's not a full experience and would be useless for a new user. It also is missing customization features seen in other iOS Mastodon apps, as it just has a basic light or dark theme. Not worth switching to at this time..Version: 1.0.0

An excellent app except…No support for local and federated timelines. Local timelines in particular are important for building community on small instances, and networked small communities are what make Mastodon special. If you’re new to Mastodon then I’d recommend the web interface, or a different app.Version: 1.0.0

延迟有点严重希望可以改进一下稳定性,感觉和网页版相比会有延迟,其他都很好!.Version: 1.3.1

Doesn't support post length discoveryTry to use this with a server that supports longer than default posts and it won't work — this client is capped at 500 characters, unlike every other Mastodon client out there..Version: 1.0.0

UnusableUnable to stop the app re-setting itself every few seconds. Not sure if server problem or the app software itself. Either way, functionality currently unusable in my opinion. A disappointment for those such as myself looking for an Elon Musk alternative..Version: 1.3.1

Doesn’t let you sign into existing accountsBoth the “get started” newcomer link and the “sign in” link on the intro page go through the newcomer, signup flow. The app doesn’t let me sign into my existing account. I suspect this is a bug, but right now the app’s literally unusable!.Version: 1.3.1

Missing best Mastodon featuresIf you’re new to Mastodon, try getting started in your browser, Metatext or Toot!. Mastodon itself is great. However. This app hides basic functionality like the unlisted post setting (which is both important to personal privacy and not clogging up your community’s timeline) and access to the local timelines (which makes it impossible to interact with your community), and it lacks most of the charm of Mastodon. The Mastodon dev wants to turn Mastodon into Twitter even though it absolutely never will be (it’s just not built that way foundationally), which is a GOOD thing, and is why people stay on Mastodon. (No ads, no algorithmic posting, no intrusive UX designed to trap you forever!) So he’s stripped all of the charm and best features out of it with the official app. Use an app by someone who loves Mastodon for what it is instead..Version: 1.4.0

Cannot get my serverSupposedly can type name of server in search spot and use your local server even if not listed. Have tried multiple times, and our server is never found. Deleting app and trying some others..Version: 1.3.0

Holds promiseThe community is great, but the iOS app has some user interface limitations and bugs that hold it back. Fingers crossed they get sorted..Version: 1.4.0

Metatext is the benchmarkUntil the official Mastodon app meets and exceeds the feature set of Metatext, it’s not worth it. Metatext feels very native, is performant, and has more features out of the box. Hopefully more to come. 🙂.Version: 1.3.1

Mostly fine, except media PostsGenerally seems to work as a basic Mastodon Client, but if you want to make media rich posts it’s a hassle to use. I haven’t yet found a way to actually include an animated GIF that works. Pasting, uploading from Photos & uploading from Files all seem to result in either a link or the GIF being converted to a still..Version: 1.4.0

App limits the instances you can choice fromFor some reason, the creators of this app have limited which instances you can log into. It makes no sense why the user is limited to choosing among a small selection of instances..Version: 1.2.0

Nice app but missing basic thingsAt least for me. I want the local and home and federated tabs. It’s hard to tell what is going on and when with how it is now. Also the app lags sometimes and seems much slower than my favorite app. Please consider adding the tabs for local and home and federated. Now things seem all mixed in together and it’s hard to find new people signing up in my instance..Version: 1.0.4

Meh.It’s pretty and I want to like it, but it doesn’t (and won’t) support viewing the local timeline. What’s the point of a client that won’t show you what other people on your server are saying? Without this, Mastodon instances have all the personality of an email server. There are other, better clients to choose from..Version: 1.3.0

Lots of potential but…Too convoluted. Especially with finding an instance or even setting up your own. Too bad was looking for somewhere to go..Version: 1.4.2

Normal log in option pleaseUnfortunately my server is not on the list in the start up page so can’t even log in.Version: 1.4.0

Signed up 3 weeks ago, still can’t get inI have been waiting for approval on an instance I wanted to join since April 26. I don’t know how to contact the person running the instance to check in, and I can’t figure out how to contact Mastodon to ask. (Tried a Twitter message, to no avail) So I literally haven’t even been able to look at anything this app has to offer, I just keep trying to log in, and have it tell me my application is still being reviewed… Guess you have to be tech savvy to know what to do at this point, so I’m giving up. :(.Version: 1.4.0

Not complete- Missing featuresFan of Mastodon. Have a NSFW Gay account. Not posting to Public Fediverse. App OK for first Attempt. But some obvious stuff needs doing. Settings needs to be Native. And if needs reporting over Web.. do it after …on Save. Pined Toots. So obvious.. what are you thinking We based Settings save. Says, saved. But popup. Says Cancel after not close. Or an ‘X’. Show Media. Still after two updates. Does not remove CW Overlays. Forced still tap and reveal. A clear setting that says, Show Media with No Overlays.. or to that effect. Edit Toot… even if timed.. say two Minutes Verify Account. Still no Mastodon tick iCon. Weird. You can verify with a Rel=Me link back.. but does nothing to show users your verified. Weird again. Good effort.. needs work. Web based Pinafore. Better at the moment. Nolan developer gets it..Version: 1.4.0

Where are my instances?I have a couple of accounts on different (benign) instances and none show up when I type them into the search box..Version: 1.3.0

Limited instancesCan only sign in to mastodon approved instances. Self hosted instances can’t be added..Version: 1.3.0

Missing basic featuresMissing support for local and federated timelines..Version: 1.3.0

No federated timeline viewThere is no apparent way to view the federated timeline for your instance, ie see all the tweets your instance sees. This is a vital feature for my private instance where my main timeline isn’t overly populated as there are not many people being followed..Version: 1.0.0

No federated/local timelines !The main cool feature of Mastodon is missing from the official app. You only have the option of viewing your home feed. Please add local and federated timelines!.Version: 1.0.7

Update FailAfter the latest update, the app asks me to choose a specific server. I then enter my correct mastodon login info, and am told it’s incorrect for the specific server. There is no way around this. I’m able to use the web version and the MetaText app however with the same logon info..Version: 1.4.0
