Does anyone have a recommendation for a decent Mastodon Android app?

@nickbarlow Depends on your definition of decent. I was using Tootdon, but the latest update crashes every couple of minutes. I've moved to Tusky which seems more stable, but it currently only allows one account (so if you're on more than one instance, it can be a pain).

@nickbarlow I'm happily using the web but I've never been keen on apps that replicate web functions. The official one seems OK

@nickbarlow I'm using pawoo. Allows multiple accounts, pretty decent overall. Twitter vibes

@nickbarlow Tusky is good if you don't need multi-user support

Mastalab is slightly clunkier in my experience, but still very usable

Subway Tooter has every conceivable bell and whistle, but it is hard to look at

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
