At Lickability, we’ve long been interested in the power of social networks, which is why we’ve worked on apps like Houseparty, Tumblr, and Clubhouse over the years. But there are few social networks where we’ve built a presence. In 2018, we joined Mastodon—a decentralized open-source social network from Eugen Rochko (aka Gargron). And in 2021, Eugen came to us to design the official Mastodon iOS app. Then in February, the team released 1.0 of Mastodon for iOS on the App Store to much fanfare and rave reviews.
