After my very recent move over to App.net I started to make myself a bit comfortable over there, follow people and began to set everything up to my liking. So far, things are looking very promising and I already found familiar people over there.
As I am on the mobile the majority of time I naturally more or less immediately started to explore the list of 3rd party clients on GitHub. I am happy to notice that there’s a bunch of very promising apps already in the pipeline which will hopefully be released in the near future. After all it was also the growing amount or 3rd apps which ultimately pushed me over to sign up for the service.
At the moment there are two apps for the iPhone available in the app-store but (by the time of this writing unfortunately) none for the iPad. From the last few days of using the service I do find though that the mobile interface of the site works fine on the iPad (especially when bookmarking it to the homescreen) but a native app surely would be better 1.
On the desktop there’s a few applications as well. Even though I’m generally not sitting much at the desktop anymore, the app I’m using at the moment is Appetizer, but of course I will have to try a few others as well. Which brings me to a nice overview on some available and upcoming apps which I just found on Mike Vardy’s blog (naturally via App.net).
And while I was just in the middle of setting everything up, I finally got around to update my profile pic! Wuhuu, who would have thought. After more than four years using the same one this was long overdue.
