On macOS, you can now use Continuity Camera on post composer, to capture and attach photos from your iPhone or iPad. You can now also use the “Services” feature in more places with just keyboard shortcuts.

On iOS, with extended support for iOS 12, Mona Beta can now be used on iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus, making the Mastodon experience accessible to even more people around the world.

Today’s update also adds preliminary support for non-Mastodon instances.

iCloud reading position sync is now enabled on the latest Mona Beta update. Please update the app on all your devices, because the new sync engine is not compatible with old versions of Mona Beta. This update also resolves a VoiceOver focus issue on Mac.

@MonaApp Thank you for the one time payment. I, for one, do not like being a slave to subscriptions.

@MonaApp Thank you! That change r.e. link previews is excellent news.

@MonaApp Would it be possible to add a reverse flow option so that we can read from top to bottom in time order?

@MonaApp what’s the keyboard shortcut? I can’t find it cause I’m tired apparently😂🤦‍♂️

@MonaApp Is the function of truncating long texts enabled by default? Now it can only truncate the length by default, can it not be changed?

@MonaApp Nice update! What about new toots count in icon badge? :D

@MonaApp \o/ truncate long postst!

@MonaApp Is there a way to disable truncating long posts and hiding link previews on posts with content warnings?

@MonaApp Great app!

@MonaApp It has been very good to use since the focus issue was fixed a couple of updates ago on the Mac with VoiceOver.
If you could please bring a shortcut to follow someone or Unfollow? I would be so very happy.

@MonaApp Please add a setting to disable the long-post truncation.

@MonaApp Wow for the first time ever I just opened Mona on my iPhone and it immediately synced and moved to my last read position on my Home timeline.

@MonaApp These are great updates! I'm wondering if it would one day be possible to show/hide sidebar or tab bar on iPad, as well as on Mac?😁

@MonaApp You should launch this thing man. Call it early access if you want. Get people paying you.

1. Provide UI to block a user or instance without reporting.
2. Fix the (macOS) image description input bug. Having to paste in spaces sucks.

@MonaApp Is there any timeline on using instance specific emojis? Loving the heck out of the app already! It’s become my goto.

@wenwizzle Mac is always attached with a keyboard so tab functions are always accessible with keyboard shortcuts, however that’s not the case on iPad.


For me, the last detail to make it perfect would be to be able to turn off the "Load More Posts" and just have all of them load each time I refresh, leaving me at my last read position. Can this be implemented, please?

@xiuhuitu Currently not. Thanks for the suggestion.

@jeremydebose Shift-Command-L

@MonaApp Thanks. Looks so much cleaner now! Only thing we’ll need now is an easy way to jump to top🤞

@jeremydebose You can command-up to scroll to top, or click the selected tab bar icon.

@MonaApp Awesome. I meant is there a way to click when I hide the tab bar? Command Up helps tremendously though!

@jeremydebose Yes, with keyboard shortcuts available on Menu Bar > View menu.

@adrianco Thanks for the suggestion.

@MonaApp Thanks for the app! I’ve tried several and have settled on Mona for the last few weeks.

@adrianco @MonaApp Just installed based on your recommendation :-). Thank you
