It's finally here! v1.0 of Toot! has been officially released on the app store!
For those who have not been in on the beta test already, this is an Mastodon client for iOS, full of character and whimsy. It is multi-instance, multi-account, it is fast, it is comfortable and it is above all a lot of fun!
It has a strong focus on user experience, animation, and attention to detail, as well as being the best client for Mastodon around. Try it now!

If your web app has separate database fields for first name and last name, you are doing it badly wrong. I'm looking at YOU, practically every Silicon Valley tech startup.
Thing is, it’s big, but it’s not as big as Graham’s Notepad.
My hobby: attempting to explain Graham’s Number to a 5-year-old who asked what the biggest number is.
