Are there already mobile apps for pixelfed? If not, is there some kind of ETA?
So I guess they aren't targeting an Instagram replacement anymore?
They still are, Micro is getting spun off as a separate project that is now largely intended to be backend-agnostic, kind of like Pinafore or Halcyon. The Instagram-like experience will still be the core (default) experience.
I think that is good. The Image-centric format is a medium a lot of people prefer, as seen from other popular networks. I think if the Fediverse can cover many mediums it will be a vast source of information.
Looks very interesting!
I really like the discovery changes PixelFed introduced by having a view of tags you posted. I still wish I could follow tags like on Diaspora or Socialhome rather than this implicit algorithm. Hopefully this new UI can support something like that.
