@gcrkrause no Android release yet either, which is really bizarre. I read somewhere that he got tons of funding to make this? If so, where did the funding come from? Patreon?
@blindscribe One could argue there are quite some Android Apps already, but open source development for iOS is much harder to do. But ignoring moderation and accessibility (its what I read from your comments, I cant test it) totally missed what is really important.
@blindscribe @samhenrigold this. And the fact this is not just something someone dislikes about the app, its in fact excluding people from using it just because the way they are born or medical issues. And the fact nobody even tried to make sure this works out actually says a lot about the mindset, and as far as I heard its similar with the web ui.
@gcrkrause @samhenrigold this is why the majority of us use pinafore rather than the original web UI. It started off wanting to be designed so that it was inclusivly design, so disabled people use it more. and contribute to it more Like I said, the team developing the native Mastodon iOS app knew about accessibility. They are not new to accessibility
@gcrkrause @samhenrigold yes. Just now saw this, you’re not getting it for some reason. It’s not just about the visual design of the app. It’s about discrimination by elimination. If the developers don’t acknowledge accessibility, they don’t have to listen when I actually file an issue. This is not a small app, this is an app that has been in development for months, the developers know about accessibility. It’s not about ignorance.
This is a brand new server run by the main developers of the project as a spin-off of mastodon.social It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
