New will allow to compose threads before posting.
Each element (messages composing a thread) can have their own media, poll, even mentions.
Also, the app will detect limits of your instance (max chars per message, max file size, file format, max number of media, etc.).
This should give you a better UX when composing.

How many apps are installed on your phone? (not counting pre-installed ones)

> "If you want me to make you useful software, pay me. If you use software made by others in their spare time and find it useful, pay them. This should not be a controversial opinion. This should not be a new thing. This should already be the state of the world and it is amazingly horrible for us to have the people that make the things that make our software work at all starve and beg for donations."

We are still working on the new . We take into account your current remarks / bug reports.
When replying, you will be able to scroll up the whole thread. Also, you will have the ability to compose your thread before posting it. That means you will be able to put media, mentions or whatever for each reply that will compose your thread.
This thread will be stored in drafts so you can take your time for composing it.

PS: read media descriptions for details.

Our server is mainly used to translate messages in a respectful privacy through translate.fedilab.app (fedilab uses the api).
And also to schedule messages (plan.fedilab.app).
We will update soon our donation page. Just reach us, if you don't want to see your first name mentioned.

Our update on Google has finally been rejected.

Google asks us to provide credentials because cannot be used without them.

We appealed from this decision. It is technically not possible because login form is through a browser and not through the app. Also, there is no solution to specify the instance in their process.

We will keep you informed.

Currently, all the process with pagination is working fine.

We are working on a new fedilab version. The whole code is being refractored.
App will work offline, so you can go through the past toots in your home timeline even when you don't have internet.
Our plan is to make the UI more clean and simple, while somehow keeping the existing features.
Also, the app will work smoothly.
Still lot of work to do. We'll share more updates with you. Let us know your thoughts
