If someone hurts me and I hurt them back, I am just as bad. Actually, I am worse because I know better. I am better. I have the power not to respond to pain and violence.
I can positively influence the world.
I can enact change, the change that I need, that is needed.
I am a force of goodness. I stumble and I fall, but my heart remains pure.
I am forgiveness.
I am love.
Been checking out the #megalodon mastodon app on Android since yesterday. I'm liking it. So far I think my only very very small UI complaint would be I wish there was a touch more space and clearer delineation between the posts, but that's it.
Here is one of the many wonderful miracles performed by the real Santa Claus, Saint Nicholas of Myra. The most amazing thing is that each and every one of us can do it. 🎁
Official app v2.2.4: This app came from far. Almost perfect for me, but can't edit the toolbars (like adding lists), I can't increase the text size of posts (it's a bit to small for my eyes - yes, rest of Android is fine) and I can't schedule posts.
#Moshidon v2.1.4 (102): This was the perfect app, but since this version it crashes just to much. Older versions work, but the official app has more features. Let's hope it will make a come-back.
#Megalodon v2.1.6 (107): This was my number two, but Moshidon has more features. But the most important reason it was number two is the ugly (IMO) pink launch icon. I know, I can change it using icon sets, but to much work. Plus it also crashes, just like Moshidon. Megalodon is a fork of the official app and Moshidon is fork of Megalodon AFAIK.
#Tusky v24: It still looks outdated; no Material You support or other modern themes (only dark/light) and the icons look outdated. To much blue. The notifications don't have a separate tab for mentions (only a filter, you much change every time, and that's not user friendly). That said, the new Tusky 24 is great. I must admit.
I also tried many other apps, but they all had to much flaws
I now use the Official app and Tusky for post scheduling.
When is McDonald's leaving Israel?
When are the yachts of the Israeli billionaires being impounded?
When are all the sanctions we saw imposed against Russia being applied to Israel as well?
Instead, the U.S. wants to send 10 billion dollars to the genocidal Government of Israel. Might as well write a check to Russia too.
#megalodon хватит блин кршится при выборе стикеров в случайный из Разов! Это очень раздражает >:(

Mon appli #Megalodon fonctionne très mal aujourd'hui. Pourtant je n'ai pas fait de mise à jour très récente. Qu'est-ce qui se passe ?
Been using Moshidon for over a month now, and I don't want to switch back to Megalodon. Super fast and responsive, easy to use, supports reactions, Material You design language.
If you guys are looking for a new Mastodon client for mobile, be sure to give this one a shot. Megalodon is great, don't get me wrong, but this one takes the cake for me.

@otterX When you open toots on their original instances, you'll see that they usually have more favourites than boosts. It's just that favourites don't federate particularly well because only those by local users and users followed by local users get registered (if I remember correctly).
However, I do agree that "like" may be a more useful term, which might make people more generous with their positivity. I know they use that over on #Pixelfed and #Friendica. I am using #Megalodon, which has the option to change the favourite button to a heart, which I currently use.
The new Tusky beta seems to be the best Android app for Mastodon at the moment. I can adjust the font size as I like and timestamps can be displayed as absolute time. Also works fine for reading oldest to newest. The way it displays edited posts is very good.
Main feature missing is reverse timeline (oldest posts on the top) but no Android app seems to have it yet.
Hope @megalodon and @trunksapp get these features soon.

When I replied to messages using the official #Mastodon client, I was missing a preview of the message I was replying to. It was so annoying...but I try to not go crazy.
But today...today I changed it to a #Megalodon, that has this preview and is still simple, fast, intuitive and good looking as Mastodon.
Only that pink icon sucks... 🤪😏
If anyone is looking for Mastodon with some nice features that Mastodon doesn't have, pick Megalodon!
There's a Food crisis, a Climate crisis, a Drug crisis. My mum has to reserve her medication in advance because Big Pharma wants to keep supplies low and prices high.
There isn't a Weapons crisis, though.
"Help, we don't have enough guns and bombs to protect ourselves!" 😒
Why? Why? Why? Why be part of such an evil society that wants people sick, poor, frightened, dead?
Someone said they didn't like clothes that smelled like detergent.
Because I wanted to be accepted, I went along with this insanity.
But that was the old me. The new me loves detergent and always has. If you don't... Well, it's wrong, but no judgment.
Anyhoo, I have no intention of making myself popular or affable just to belong. If you like me, I'm genuinely grateful to have made a friend. If not, I don't mind.

@motzmichel Kennst du #Moshidon? Lässt auch #Firefish Accounts zu, hat auch in der Usability super Features (auch für #Mastodon)
Nur die #Features die ich bei #Firefish so gerne nutzen würde (Lesezeichen, ANtennen,...) das kann sie leider noch(?) nicht.
App jedenfalls klar zu empfehlen, kann auch Multi-Accounts und ist auf #fdroid
Kann #Megalodon Antennen und strukturierte Lesezeichen?
El hecho de que en la #nueva #versión #v2.1.6-fork108(108) de #Megalodon el #listado de #notificaciones (pestaña) de vez en cuando se cargue de nuevo, lléndose a la punta arriba me cabrea un montón. Y eso que he #desmarcado Ajustes > Comportamiento: Cargar publicaciones nuevas automáticamente
Eso de que estés viendo unas notificaciones y que de pronto, sobre todo si pinchas en una para ver la conversación o un enlace que tenga, y cuando vuelves a las notificaciones se mueva toda la lista a la punta arriba me desespera.
Well, I suppose it's was to good to be true. I'm getting the same duplicate post problem in #trunksapp as in #megalodon. At the top of the feed, after reading a few hours of accumulated posts in chronological order (bottom to top), the posts start repeating.
So is this something that is wrong with the api or what?
#Megalodon it's is then no trackers so far clean gui easy to use decently featured quick and as a nice bonus it makes a point of showing pro nouns which is useful for someone like myself who gets easily confused about such things.
@trunksapp The new Trunks beta for Android for the first time feels like I might use it on constant basis. I still prefer the look and feel in #megalodon but #trunksapp is better at keeping track of where I was last time and filling gaps without losing duplicate posts.
That seems to work even when switching accounts, which doesn't work at all in Megalodon. However, the home feed settings default to "all" when switching accounts. And I still think these buttons should be settings.
Whoaa how cool is this! Look at all those options!! 🤯
To edit a timeline in #Megalodon, just tap on it once you're on the Timelines page (second screenshot). More detailed explanation in the alt text!
@trunksapp Looking nice, I like being able to select completely white background for the text. However, I still prefer the very clean interface in Megalodon.
Scrolling still a bit too sticky. Can't make the notifications work. Language selector should have latest used languages more visible. Better layout for uneven number of images needed
I'd like to update the Finnish translation soon, but hoping that you will first make the translation files available on Weblate?
Muss nochmal "nerven"
Wäre es nicht schön, wenn es im #Fediverse leichter ersichtlich wäre, ob wer sich auf #Mastodon, #Pixelfed, #Firefish etc angemeldet hat.
Manchmal sehe ich mit meiner App #Megalodon bei Profilen gar keine Beiträge oder Follower oder oder ...
Ich weiß, dass es manchmal schon schwer sein kann unter den verschiedenen #Instanzen Mastodons, aber außerhalb davon ist es nochmal etwas trickiger.
Kann wer #helfen?
That "megalodon tooth stuck in whale vertebrae" fossil is a fake, and I'm a bit sad now, but this page gives some cool extra info:
"Modern men are, sooner than later, becoming aware of their sensitive sides and emotions. It is beneficial for women and children, as well as for other men too."
It's still an incredibly difficult and painful process, but I'm doing the work, and I know I'm not alone in this.
Huh, discovered an interesting bug in Megalodon, when you share images from the "Share" button on your phone, it uses the default accent colour, not a big deal and won't affect your mastodoning, but interesting nonetheless.
I just realized my S9's led displays #megalodon notifications as pink omg I love it

Hey Android users, what Mastodon app are you using these days? Gotta do one of these polls every now and then. :otter_peek: Keeps me youthful.
Boost please! :ameowbongofavboost: And if you wouldn't mind, drop a comment on why you picked that app. I'm curious! :pupper_wag:
💬 Lucas, der Entwicker von @moshidon ist 17 und kommt aus Brasilien
Er schreibt zu #Moshidon:
"Ein Fork von #Megalodon, einem Fork der offiziellen Mastodon-Android-App, der wichtige Funktionen hinzufügt, die in der offiziellen App fehlen und möglicherweise nie implementiert werden, wie z. B. die föderierte Zeitleiste, nicht gelistete Beiträge, Lesezeichen und einen Bildbeschreibungs-Viewer."
@trunksapp It's nice, but I still prefer the clean look in #megalodon . I'd like to have black text on white background with my default font. Scrolling is a bit too sticky.
The greatest feature in #trunksapp is that it keeps my place in the timeline and gets new posts when needed with no gaps and no duplicate posts. More apps need this. (I'm looking at you @megalodon )
Reverse order timeline would be nice. Now one must scroll back and forth when reading posts in context in the timeline.
You go to the doctor's where you're told about a new drug, not because it's supposed to make you feel better, but because Big Pharma's rep has promised the doctor to pay all their medical expenses.
No, this isn't the plot for Pain Hustlers, the Emily Blunt and Chris Evans Netflix drama. My mum's a nurse. I've seen this firsthand. It's gross. It should also be illegal.
This is my very first video on PeerTube using the Spectra instance.
Think of PeerTube as the video version of Mastodon, serving as an alternative to YouTube and TikTok.
Anyhoo, I hope you enjoy it.
And then of course #Fedilab...
... and some more apps for #Android.
I've removed the official Android Mastodon app from my phone again. It's still impossible to read the timeline in chronological order (upwards). When filling gaps, I lose my place. Tusky, Trunks and Megalodon can do that. (But Megalodon unfortunately shows duplicate posts at the top of the timeline.) And the "new posts" nag button is irritating.
It should be possible to turn the timeline upside down (right side up) as you could in some Twitter apps
そもそも、こういうクライアント選びって意外と機能面だけじゃなくて、#UI の雰囲気とかアプリアイコンが好きとかそういうちょっとしたことでも「私はこれ！」って決めて使うこともあるし、そういう選択肢が複数あるっていうことが :mastodon: のメリットだし、#X formaly #Twitter があんなことになったせいで力のある開発者が :mastodon: に流れてきてから 1 年くらい経って、実際にユーザーも体感できるレベルでサードパーティーのクライアントの魅力と多様性が増してきてる :tony_smiling:
新しい :mastodon: の公式 :android_logo: アプリは、#Megalodon っていう公式アプリをフォークしたサードパーティー製のアプリにちょっと近い感じ。
自分は今 #Phanpy っていう Web クライアントメインに使ってるけど、これもつい一昨日に初めて知ったやつだし :mastodon: クライアント盛り上がりを感じる :tony_santa:

@jaystephens @alexture fortunately I filter them out. I use #Megalodon which allows you to control your feed to a minute degree. I have a special category of people I follow where I make sure to keep track of to comment on their posts. I do not place people who post outrage there. I find outrage over any issue unhelpful. Fosters a sense of helplessness. More constructive ways to deal with pressing issues.
@rolle suosituksesta kokeilin pitkästä aikaa sovellusta mastodoniin. Kyllä tämä kevyemmin rullaa kuin pwa. #megalodon vaikuttaa tosiaan käytettävältä. Pitäisin enemmän jos *kaikki* valikot olis alhaalla. Nyt toi striimi nappi on ylhäällä. Yksi kiva asia on todellinen musta amoled näytöllä. Ja se että paikka ei katoa vaikka luet juttuja tai vaihdat näkymien välillä, toisin kuin nettiversiossa.
Luettuani näitä mikroblogisome-vertailuja sain aikaiseksi myös ladata suositellun #Megalodon-appin.
Both are excellent free android options for #mastodon 🐘
Megalodon presents more of a user's followers across other servers. Whereas Tusky has a simpler cleaner feeling interface.
BUT.. Is there a way to change the focus point on an image when you toot? Such that the (aggressively) cropped image visible in the TL shows the best possible portion.
This was simple in Tusky, but I can't find the feature in Megalodon..
Really like how #Megalodon gives me the ability to control what I see on a granular level. They have an option called "posts" which notifies me when people I follow share a new post. Now, each time I hit the Home button, I see the posts of people I follow. These are folks that I make sure to at least talk to once in a while 😘
I tend to get overwhelmed by my Following feed, so this helps me refine it down further.
Moshidon and Megalodon are shaping up to be such good Mastodon clients for Android. They’re fluid, native, Material You, and based on the upstream codebase—but they add extremely nice features that are lacking in the “official” app.
Open source is so cool. Even if the upstream project is more top-down driven and less of a community effort, it still allows for awesome downstreams like this.
#megalodon ist im Übrigen KOSTENLOS. Man bittet um Spenden. Das ist mehr als nur fair! ... :-)
Die offizielle Mastodon App ist, mit Verlaub, zumindest für Menschen mit (Seh-)Behinderung eine einzige Zumutung!
#tusky ist sehr gut, recht übersichtlich und wird relativ gut gepflegt.
Neu im Dauertest bei mir: #megalodon. Die App ist sehr schön und strukturell gut aufgebaut. Man findet sich schnell zurecht. Einstellungen für größere Schrift: Leider nö!

It seems I've list push notifications on #megalodon after my phone restore, has it happened with anyone else?
