    Sync for offline use. I’d like to tap a button while in wireless lan to suggest that I will be going on an “offline trip” and to cache all big media versions if possible for all images in my upcoming feed.

    Maybe it’s already there, but I’d like to browse other instances without creating an account, similarly to the anonymous view of Eternity for Lemmy.

    “Recommended” feed. While I like the chronological and trending feed having a personal feed might make me view posts I might like. Only thing that twitter does good.

      Most social media sites do this by using algorithms to see what users post about, who they follow.

      I’ve been read about how Threads is being defederated because it will be tracking it’s users and it’s something most don’t want here.

        Meta has a really bad history using users data for their own good and yeah that’s the reason people are sceptical of Threads. Twitter on other hand, its just they are milking their subscribers. But they have lots of porn bots which makes it unusable sometimes. I think there is an ios app named “Mammoth” that has a similar feed that uses algorithm but I use android so I can’t say whether that’s good.

      Is the mastodon “lists” feature something like what you are talking about?

        Just looked up about lists.

        The “Lists” feature lets you create mini-timelines that show posts from selected accounts you already follow.

        I also want posts from the people I don’t follow but might match my preferences.

          Hmm, okay. Not too sure mastodon provides an API endpoint for that but I will throw it on the tracker and look into adding it. 🫡🫡🫡

    Not necessarily a mastodon app, but I’d love to see consistent application of markdown. The client I use doesn’t seem to support spoilers, and I’ve seen others that implement headings differently. It would be nice to have all clients implement it the same way.

      (vanilla) mastodon does not have markdown, and content from other instances (marked up or not) get transmitted as HTML over the wire (and the mastodon API serves sanitized HTML to apps).

      mastodon forks like glitch, and clones of the mastodon API like those on pleroma/akkoma and iceshrimp do serve the markdown source AFAIK, but unless OP’s looking to… idk, support MFM (which, on a non-web app would be difficult) I don’t really see the point in that.

        I’ll look into adding markdown support but I’m not sure I’ve ever seen anything other than bare HTML come through the API. Tbh, the apps are probably just parsing the HTML. Got any examples with markdown in the posts?

          Look into opening an account on an Iceshrimp instance like https://fedia.social, or an Akkoma instance like http://pleroma.envs.net. Their APIs are an extension on top of the Mastodon APIs (and both support Markdown and should expose them to apps). Sharkey also has some Mastodon API compatibility but it’s quite broken and might require some odd workarounds to get stuff working.

          That said, for rich text, parsing the HTML will be more than enough for nearly all cases.

    I use catodon.social, which is a MUCH nicer user interface and federates with Mastodon. Very impressed by the design.

      Have you checked out any of the other Fediverse microblog platforms, like Misskey, Sharkey, etc? I don’t really like the layout of Mastodon, but Sharkey’s got a much nicer layout (with multiple customization options), and I’ve really been enjoying it.

    I have tried many apps. All fall short. Selectable colour for hashtags. Blue is a pain to read in low light. Selectable font size. Option to turn off boosts. Some apps have this but not the font size adjustments. Hide a post with a single click.
