This is the Mastodon client app with an experience that you will like. Share with people in an open world SNS with the experience you’re familiar with. Experience conversation based interactions with brand new Material Design Refresh. Watch and join realtime, non-stopping conversations. Avalanche is all about what’s happening right now.

A very nice app that displays the feed in the “post + comments” way rather than in a microblogging manner.

What is with the play store having almost no actual photos of what an app looks like?

Actually what is with the play store fullstop?

FYI tho don’t trust apps that aren’t on F-Droid

Lemmur is still not on F-Droid, but I trust it.

it’s at least open-source and it will be on F-Droid after release.

That’s correct, this app doesn’t fit any of the above. Posted it mainly because it’s a rare example of representing the Fediverse in a Facebook style (distinction between posts and comments) rather than in a Twitter style. I’m ok if an app is just opensource and its APK can be downloaded from somewhere (GitHub releases, GitLab CI/CD etc.). Anything specific about F-Droid apart from it’s more convenient?

F-Droid handles updates, builds, looking for apps etc. in a very convenient way, and they also audit apps to ensure security, privacy, etc. to the maximum possible degree.

So this auditing seems to be the selling point then.

Still can’t find it in F-Droid, maybe custom repo?

Yeah might be in a custom repo. They said they’re adding it to f-droid soon.

It is, just checked. It’s IzzyDroid repo as expected. https://apt.izzysoft.de/fdroid/index/apk/com.krawieck.lemmur

Source-code? On F-droid?

Haven’t found yet. It was recommended by Google Play, so I tried it. The app manufacturer’s webpage seems to be this one - https://avalanche.mixi.moe/, but it’s just “Not found” there. Though the upper domain works.

checked with Exodus, found 3 Trackers. Bye.

Trackers or no trackers, non-libre is non-libre. I can’t find a license or source code repo for this app so I have to assume it’s non-libre.

I quite like it. No font size control that I can see (pun intended) though.
