What makes Toot! special?
- It is delightful. It is full of beautiful design, animation, amusing details and hidden treasures.
- It is fast and robust. It caches data locally to let you read without waiting for slow loading, and it remembers your reading position.
- It lets you be as many people as you like. You can easily switch between accounts with a flick of your finger. It even lets you read timelines on instances you are not logged in to!
- It has the cutest icon.
What makes Mastodon special?
- It is a social network by humans, rather than algorithms and corporate interests.
- It is a social network for humans, rather than advertisers and data collectors.
- It is a social network that is humane, rather than preying on your insecurities and worst instincts.
Why does Toot! cost money?
- Toot! shows you no ads, and it collects none of your information, nor does it track any of your habits. It does not try to trick you into doing anything you do not want.
- That means it gets no money through such shady tricks, and relies on you to support its development.

Toot! Positive Reviews
Favorite Mastodon AppFeels like the most complete mastodon app out there! It’s definitely the one I use with the most ease and has almost all the features I find useful.
Would like to see the ability to re-hide sensitive media once opened though, like you can do on the mastodon web app. Right now you can only re-hide CWs, but sometimes sensitive image posts don’t always have CWs. Once I open a sensitive image and then scroll past it or better yet, switch tabs, I’d like it to automatically be hidden again, should I have my settings set to “always hide sensitive media”. I’m on an instance where unflagged sensitive media should be reported, and the current format makes it hard to distinguish between images i’ve clicked on vs not properly flagged ones.
Beyond that, I’m very happy with Toot! Thanks for the wonderful work on this app!.Version: 1.8.0
A great Mastodon client which prioritizes the comfort and safety of its usersThe Mastodon social network is a great place to interact with people (especially fellow members of marginalized communities), but like any federated form of social media it is difficult to prevent certain people from trying to make it unsafe. I am glad that Toot! uses a bunch of approaches to keep its users safe, such as making it easy to switch instances, being respectful of post privacy settings, and making it possible to avoid interactions with people through the blocking system. There are also some great quality-of-life features like the zen “relax” mode and some fun Easter eggs, and the developer is incredibly responsive to bug reports and feature requests.
This app makes Mastodon a delight to use. My only complaints would be that it’s a bit harder than necessary to tune which notifications come up on my lock screen..Version: 1.9.0
Complete, anti-fascist Mastodon appThis app is user-friendly and has all the features I need to use mastodon. I didn’t get it at first because I’m very broke but when the first app I was using left the App Store I decided to spring for it and I’m glad I did. It’s customizable, you can log in to multiple instances at once, and I love that it blocks Gab. I hope it continues to be as accessible and hate-free as possible. The only suggestions I would have would be: 1) add custom emojis. I know this has been requested previously and I’m pretty sure the developers said it might happen eventually but it really would be awesome to be able to access my instance’s emojis from the app! Also, 2) this is small but allow access to a user’s media tab within the app. If this is a feature I haven’t figured it out yet. Please keep up the good work!.Version: 1.9.4
Alright app with slightly batty devsIt does it’s job well, in fact it’s probably my favorite client app thus far. However while I do appreciate the option they included to “”Filter Awful Survers, filter out any toot originating from a white supremacist server. (Currently, only Gab.)”” I personally dislike how it’s automatically selected. It almost felt as if they were trying to parent us and say what we are and aren’t allowed to view using the app. I would have rated this app higher if it weren’t for them quite literally pushing their views (That you can turn off after going through the settings.) onto us. Perhaps in the future they’ll learn to consider others (However wrong) opinions and turn off the ‘automatic’ setting. Maybe just a pop-up notification would show when we first start the app that says something like “If you want to limit seeing Toots from offensive servers you can turn on a “Filter Awful Servers” option..Version: 1.10.2
My First Mastodon Mobile AppI joined Mastodon a few weeks ago and immediately went to look for an app for my mobile devices. I discovered Toot! and I find the app delightful to use. It’s really well done, especially for the price, free. Everything works as expected and any use of the app that didn’t work was because it was dodgy WiFi or CloudFlare having connectivity issues with some Mastodon instances I have accounts with. I’ve never had a fault with the app, and I use it regularly.
I am writing this review because there are other reviews in place that have nothing at all to do with the app and have everything to do with political arguments. This review space is to review the application itself. The author has done a fantastic job, and if you need a Mastodon app, this one will not let you down. It didn’t let me down..Version: 1.9.0
Excellent Mastodon clientQuickly loads, great handling of content, settings, etc. Notifications come through reliably, unlike my experience with other Mastodon client apps. If you don’t like the “cutesy” features like the elephant sound alerts, you can thankfully switch them off or to another more conventional sound. The darker-colored themes are especially helpful for browsing at night.
Only wish it would handle image previews for animated GIFs, without it resulting in opening a tab/window to view the “video”.(Looping GIF animations doesn’t seem to be supported with this implementation.).Version: 1.5.1
Some issues with Voiceover.I use the voiceover screenreader on my phone. When I tap on the button to make a new toot, nothing happens. Also, when I go to check my notifications, voiceover reads them, but it won’t read who they’re from. If you could look into these issues I’d really appreciate it. Thank you.
All that aside, the app is pretty cool. I already like it more than the other app I’ve been using..Version: 1.9.0
Lovely app.This makes browsing Mastodon more pleasant. It has a quick and easy way to switch accounts, but I wish they had the option to change it from being on the right to being on the left. And for swipe gestures to boost or favorite. And inline replies.
Other than that, it’s a lovely app. Very pleasant to look at, and a breath of fresh air in Mastodon clients.
Quick edit: I wish there was a more convenient way to raise up issues, like a github/bucket to add requests or report on bugs..Version: 1.4
Best app for Mastodon I’ve tried!!I’ve tried so many apps and this one has the most going for it! Definitely worth the purchase, especially considering I am online like every day
-Easy to switch between accounts on different instances once you set it up
-The user interface is super cute and easy to switch between the different themes
-CWs work great and are continuous
-You can add image descriptions when you post a picture
-You can turn off the “include @ of the person who boosted” when you reply to a post
-Filters actually work! Big plus
-You can see and vote in polls
-No options for adding custom emojis to posts (but I already have the short codes for my instance memorized so not too big of a deal)
-Not exactly endless scrolling to older posts, but you can just click “show more”.Version: 1.9.0
My fave mastodon appI’ve been on mastodon for nearly two years and this has really improved mobile experience. Cute, whimsical feel with solid features. Bought before it had themes and it was great when those came out. Always seems to be moving forward. There’s a few things I’d like to see improved but the tickets are in and the dev is super responsive, so I’m hopeful!.Version: 1.2
Fantastic!I've been loving how solid this app is—while it doesn't have all the same features that the web client does just yet, I've found this app to be the most reliable iOS client for Mastodon. Being able to choose the toot load order as I scroll is an especially appreciated feature.
Some feature requests:
- Icon indicating if media is a GIF/video/audio (there is no way to differentiate these currently)
- Dark, or black and white, minimal icon choice (This is the tiniest of things, but I personally always prefer to have things in black and white)
- Update trans friend icon to be a higher-res icon (on iPad Pro, it looks super low-resolution!)
- Retain scroll position of timeline(s) on all devices.Version: 1.9.3
Delightful to useThe Toot! app is the best looking and easiest to use app for the fediverse. The developer responds quickly to bug reports and every update truly makes your experience better without increasing the resources the app uses in any significant capacity, even on older devices.
I shopped around after Tootdon was shut down and this is by far the best UI and UX. Well worth your money..Version: 1.13.1
Only missing one thingI think that toot! is the better iPad-based mastodon app out there, The only thing it doesn’t have is nesting the left field. IWant more space for the tootsI’m looking at and I feel all that blank space on the left side is too much. Maybe just having the icons visible unless I open the menus board would be cool?.Version: 16.0
The Best Social App on iOSToot! is the most beautiful social app I've ever seen, both in functionality and visual design - and I've seen a lot. I've been using it as my primary mobile Mastodon client since November 2018. It's colorful, smooth, clever, and has rarely - if ever - crashed. I wish I could use it for Twitter, to be honest. It's not just the best Mastodon app right now - it's the best social app, period..Version: 1.13
FunNot only is Toot a great Mastodon client it’s just a lot of fun to use. It’s been very solid, easy to use, and it’s fast. It has a nice set of themes to suit your styling needs and even lets you adjust them. The attention to detail is superb and the animations for boosting a post and creating new posts are smooth and fun to watch. An all around solid app. Highly recommended..Version: 1.9.0
Not getting notifications, but otherwise great.I have to say, out of all the Mastodon apps, this one has the best features, and it’s the most reliable. The reason for 4 stars is because the text is so small, I have trouble using it sometimes. If there was an option to make it even slightly bigger, that would help tremendously..Version: 1.11.1
LOVE this app!Been using it since last June and its become my go to for mobile mastodon.
If there is one thing I would love to see to would be support for viewing gif avatars! Otherwise this app is wonderful, and I love the hidden “relax” options so much, they’re very charming..Version: 1.15
Best mastodon app, but not perfectThe good:
* handles CWs and image descriptions very intuitively
* remembers your place in the timeline so you can scroll chronologically without missing anything, if you choose
* optional trans flag app icon 🏳️🌈💜
* duplicate notifications in the newest version
* the compose toot button brings up a submenu for no discernable reason- asking if you want to compose a text toot, access your camera roll, or activate the camera; despite there being camera roll and camera links from the text toot screen. the submenu just gets in the way and adds an extra step..Version: 1.3
Am I Shallow?I love this app because it just works. Still, it’s the animations and the adorable icon that bring me back to open it over and over. I’m still getting used to Mastodon, but the program seems pretty robust in that one can open other feds(?). Keep up the good work. I rarely, rarely review..Version: 1.13.2
Best Mastodon client I’ve triedSimple, fun, and with all the basic features you need. The fact that this app supports multiple Mastodon accounts is a lifesaver.
The ability to administer a Mastodon server from the app would be even better, but I’ll take what I can get for now 😉.Version: 1.13.2
Keeps getting better.The dev listens to the users and has been improving the app regularly since day one. I’ve spent quite a few dollars on different Mastodon apps, as well as tried the free ones, and this is still my go-to..Version: 1.6
Best mastodon client right nowAfter trying many others Toot! is the most polished mastodon client out there, since Tootdon went down. The feature to view the timelines of other servers without logging in is actually extremely useful.Version: 1.10.1
Close to perfect!This would be the perfect Mastodon app if it supported using my instance’s emojis! As it is, I’m not sure what to do- I don’t want to have multiple Mastodon apps but I’m not sure I have any other choice because none have all the features I use..Version: 1.10.2
Zach Gage, move overToot! has got to be my favorite billiards game on the App Store. The 3D graphics are smooth and stylish, and the physics are extremely responsive. There’s this other stuff about social networking too I guess if you want that..Version: 1.0
Best mastodon app for the phone!I love this app. I use it all the time since I’ve removed Twitter from my life. It’s great because I only get notifications when they’re relevant to me!.Version: 16.0
WowGreat looks and UI interaction, it was immediately intuitive without too many options. This is a polished mastodon experience. Please give us some more and darker icons in the for men package!.Version: 16.0
So far the best app I’ve used for mastodonVisually stunning, animations are good. The workflow feels very natural. It’s what sets Toot! apart from other mastodon apps.
I can’t seem to find a feature to filter words and posts, though. Just sorting through Home, Local, and Federated and its All there..Version: 1.1
Great mastodon clientAs someone who has two accounts on different Fediverse servers, I love how easy this app makes yet to switch back and forth between my home timelines. Blocking known white supremacist servers by default is nice too..Version: 1.9.0
Really nice appReally enjoying Mastodon on this app more so than any other I’ve used. One thing I know I’d like to see from it though is the incorporation of custom emojis that certain instances have as separate keyboards or something.Version: 1.2
Amazing appWould give 5 stars but you cant play gifs without them playing as a video. Wish they could just be opened and played like images.Version: 1.4
Please add text size optionsGreat app with small text that i wish could get adjusted upwards as a user preference.Version: 1.15
Can’t toot (updated)In this build every time I try to toot, the app closes. 😣
Edit: Tapping toot no longer crashes the app after the iOS 13.2 update.Version: 1.10.1
LOVE this appThank you for making this❤️! I kno it’s still a work in progress but it’s more than worth the support🙌🏽. Thank you 😊.Version: 1.9.0
Great look and feel and supports inclusion to bootI love this app and happily paid for it. The dev is super responsive and ensures that the app is accessible and inclusive. Keep up the good work :salute:.Version: 1.9.0
Initially confusingBut as you discover features its actually really awesome!.Version: 1.6.1
This app is GREATLoads blazing fast. Looks really pretty and is easy to use with intuitive controls..Version: 1.9.5
Font is to smallI’d really like to use this as my daily driver. On my phone it’s almost impossible to read the text..Version: 1.14
Works OK but lacks some features.For example why can’t I mute a whole instance like from the web client, and why do muted and blocked users and instances still show posts in the timeline?.Version: 1.2
The best, most fun Mastodon appQuite simply this us the best Mastodon app I’ve tried yet. It’s polished, easy to use, and fun! Highly recommended!.Version: 1.0
The Best iOS Mastodon AppLove it on both iPad and iPhone. Great updates and just delightful layout..Version: 1.9.0
Best Mastodon ClientBy far the best mastodon client for iOS. Do yourself a favor and install this if you have any interest in Mastodon..Version: 1.0
Toot app good appBest mastodon client on iOS. The interface is great and the app never crashes.Version: 1.9.0
Fantastic!Smooth as butter, theme options are great!.Version: 1.2
BestI tried all other mastodon apps. This one is my favorite..Version: 1.5.1
Accessibility options would help (:I love everything about it – if the dev could add options for enlarging text, it would make it easier for me to use. Well done!.Version: 16.0
