Tapbots, the company behind the now-defunct Tweetbot Twitter client, has launched Ivory, an app designed for use with the Mastodon social network.
Available for iPhone and iPad, Ivory has been in testing with a limited number of beta testers since late November, but with Twitter officially ending API access for third-party Twitter apps, Tapbots hastened development and opted to launch an early version of Ivory.
Ivory features a Tweetbot-like design that will be instantly familiar to Tweetbot users, offering the same general interface with tabs to display the main timeline, mentions, notifications, profile, lists, and more. There’s support for multiple accounts, content warnings, muting, and polls, along with bookmarks, popular posts, post stats, gif access, and options to view local and federated timelines.
Ivory includes different app themes and icons like Tweetbot, and now that it’s the only social network Tapbots focus on, improvements will be implemented at a fast pace. As of now, the app isn’t quite as full featured as Tweetbot used to be, but there is a development roadmap available on the Tapbots website.
Profile editing, post editing, improved hashtags, improved notifications, and an improved navigation bar are all on the horizon.
Ivory is free to download, but all features can be unlocked for $1.99 per month / $14.99 per year subscription fee. [Direct Link]
