The developers who created the now-discontinued Tweetbot client have added an edit button to Ivory, their app for Mastodon. This comes with some other updates for Ivory’s iOS appincluding the ability to report users and messages, as well as support for Mastodon’s server language translation services.
While Ivory is still in early access, Tapbots says it is there is much more to come, such as quotes and custom instance emoji support. So far, Ivory lets you edit your profile on Mastodon, suppress duplicate promoted posts, create content alerts, and approve follow requests from private accounts.
Like Tweetbot, Ivory is a paid service, meaning you’ll need to pay $1.99 per month or $14.99 per year for full access to the iOS app. You can also demo it in read-only mode if you’re not ready to commit yet. There is a macOS app also in development, but it is currently available as a limited public alpha via Testflight.
Twitter initially said it would charge developers for access to the API on Feb. 9, but has since postponed the rollout of the new system to an undetermined date. Access to the API could cost developers as much as $100 a month, and CEO Elon Musk has since alluded to a free tier of “light, write-only” access for Twitter bots creating “good” content, whatever that means .
