I know of:

  • Tusky
  • Fedilab

I don’t know which of the two to use. They are quite similar in a lot of regards and I don’t think I’ve seen all differences.

Do you prefer one or the other or another option? Why?

Requirement is that the App needs to be available on F-Droid.

thanks for your opinions.

Using Firefox you can make webpages into apps so I kinda like using that. Otherwise, Tusky.

I’ve only ever used Tusky or something derived from it (Husky is basically the same thing but more orange and cuter)

Just an FYI Husky and OpenTusky (or FreeTusky I forget the name) are mostly Tusky with it’s restrictions on using banned far-right instances removed or something like that.

Husky is for pleroma. Pleroma is a lot better than mastodon. it’s just not well marketed.

That’s not surprising but the puppy icon is worth it I think, it’s not Nazis are going to use it less if other people stop using it

I use Tusky, the UI is nice and clean, it’s snappy, and generally works well in my experience.

Fedilab. First one I liked when I started out on Mastodon a couple of years ago, and haven’t felt a need to try anything else.

I currently use Tusky, but I have used Fedilab. I found Tusky to be simpler, as Fedilab has a ton of settings. If you prefer customization, Fedilab is definitely your best bet. If you want to just use Mastodon without configuring anything, Tusky is great.

I found tusky lighter and more reliable. In my experience.

Fedilab is featured loaded with many options I don’t use (nor need).

Both easy to use and config 😉

I use Tusky. Super simple to use for me. I gotta try some of the other options mentioned in the comments

I’ve used Tusky, Fedilab and Husky and the various web front ends. I think Husky maybe the best out of the clients though Fedilab is really good albeit a bit overwhelming. Honestly though I just use the web front end most of the time though.

I have both. Tusky is a simple one and Fedilab has many options. Pixelfeed for some reason ain’t working on both.

As none mentioned, Subway Tooter Is the most power user thing you can find, it’s on IzzyOnDroid F-Droid repo, you can manage multiple accounts, and perform actions on a toot accessible from one account with other account, have multiple conversations opened at same time, and the feature list go on.
