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.

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 😉

Tusky

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)

@ksynwa

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

Tusky disrespects user freedom, it therefore shouldn’t be used nor recommended to anybody.

In this freedom, it is the user’s purpose that matters, not the developer’s purpose; you as a user are free to run the program for your purposes, and if you distribute it to someone else, she is then free to run it for her purposes, but you are not entitled to impose your purposes on her.

And before someone quotes me this:

For example, if the code arbitrarily rejects certain meaningful inputs—or even fails unconditionally—that may make the program less useful, perhaps even totally useless, but it does not deny users the freedom to run the program, so it does not conflict with freedom 0. If the program is free, the users can overcome the loss of usefulness, because freedoms 1 and 3 permit users and communities to make and distribute modified versions without the arbitrary nuisance code.

That’s exactly what happened.

Edit: I can’t make a coherent sentence, lol

To the people downvoting me: care to explain or will you say nothing?

Oppressing far right zealots is cool and good

@Echedenyan

That is utilitarianist.

Do you realize that you’re just validating their ideology?

@ksynwa

How

Because, the reason so many of them hate gays, jews, trans people, you name it, because they think those people are trying to oppress them/want to erase them/etc.

By actually oppressing them, all you are achieving is doing exactly what they thought you were doing, therefore reinforcing their thinking that X people are oppressing them

@ksynwa

lmao

So you don’t have a worthwhile response. Got it.

@ksynwa

yes i don’t have a worthwhile response to this dumbassery

Why is it dumbassery?

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.

@Kamui

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

None right know but when I do Fedilab.

Mainly because I’m the combination of a stallmanite and a lazy person

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.
