hello molan, sorry to bother you, but tooter was fine til mastodon 3.5.3 came around. No I second Juanro49 s complaint, retoots lack text message parts. pics show fine. Any chance you might find time to fix it? thanks, maike

molan's picture

Hi maikek. I saw it as well... Unfortunately right now I don't have the possibility to fix it or further develop Tooter (Beta). The sources are all available and if there is a developer who can fix the issues, I gladly offer my support. Wether possible I'll look into it myself. Sorry about that - I'd love to have a well working Mastodon client on Sailfish OS. 

Juanro49's picture

With latests versions of mastodon, reblogs doen't shows fine

molan's picture

Hi Juanro, thanks for your comment. See my answer above. 

harbourlights's picture

Hello! After updating to Verla, opening links in Tooter does not work anymore. Hashtags still do, though. on an XA2 here, using Tooter daily and exclusively for Mastodon - thank you so much for this excellent app!

molan's picture

Thanks for the nice words :) I wrote an answer above about the issue. Right now I can't fix it sadly. 

kaulian's picture

Thanks for app

carlosgonz's picture

Thanks you , Tooter is good now.

zipotron's picture

Hello! Thanks a lot for this new version, just wanted to inform a bug, fail the instalation in Sailfish 3.3



molan's picture

Thanks for the comment. Do you mean 3.2? That's possible due to updated libraries. I haven't heard about any installation fails on Sailfish version 3.3. Could you share the error message you get when trying to install the app? 

objectifnul's picture

Goodie: as Tooter doesn't accept multiple accounts, we now have two versions, allowing to operate two accounts.

Thanks for making Tooter better and better. You are doing a great job! There's something that bothers me a bit: the notification-banners that pop up when Tooter is closed or fades into the background. Would it be possible to implement a feature to optionally turn the notifications off or on?
Thanks and keep up the good work!

molan's picture

Hey, thanks a lot! I haven't looked yet into the notifications and how they work / are implemented. It would certainly be nice to optionally turn them off. I'll put it on my long to-do list. And of course - any help by others is highly appreciated :)

Hi there.

If you are interested in merging our code, please use 
I would be more than interested to have someone who would work with me on this project.

Anyway, great job on this one.

zipotron's picture

Hello, thanks for this amazing app! Just wanted to report a bug, when try to access to profile of any follower the app crash. Thanks again !

molan's picture

Thank you for your comment and the bug report. I'm aware of that and still looking for a solution. Also the popular Android app Tusky has issues showing some profiles - the same ones which cause Tooter to crash (at least according to my tests). I think the issue is related to some Mastodon instances - or the interaction between instances. Which one are you using? 

zipotron's picture

Hi! I am using , I guess the most popular one. Good luck caching the bug! And thanks again

Can you replace/update Tooter in the Jolla Harbour store? Many users don't know about Openrepos.

molan's picture

Working on it :) 

Historyscholar's picture

I see chinese translation,thanks Can you add my profile options card?

Historyscholar's picture

no chinese translation again.

molan's picture

Should work now, just tested it on my Sailfish device in Chinese. There was also a small mistake in the Chinese translation file which caused an error. Thanks for reporting! 

molan's picture

Thanks. I'll find out what's wrong. 

tancent's picture

Thank you =) I've been missing this app on Sailfish and like your updates a lot. But the app still crashes pretty often when I open profiles of other users. Also, is there a link in the app to my own profile page? Keep up the good work!

molan's picture

Glad to hear you enjoy the app. I'm aware of the crashes and will try to find out what's wrong. There are also other things which need a fix. However, I don't have any previous experiences in developing Sailfish apps and it can be time-consuming to work on and understand code you didn't write yourself. So let's see what I can further change and implement. 

kaulian's picture

Thanks for this fork

Historyscholar's picture

But I still don't see Chinese  translation:)

molan's picture

Please download the app again, it should work now. Thanks for letting me know :)
