I’m really not happy with Lemmy so far. Its a great community and a cool concept, but the amount of bugs I am experiencing is really starting to put me off.

The site constantly updates / glitches, when I try click on something it moves just before I click so I end up clicking on something else. If I open a post, as soon as I go back the entire home feed is different and my sorting preferences have been reset.

As someone coming from the refinement from Apollo this really is offputting and makes me want to use Lemmy even less.

The people here are great, the federation is cool and I like how decentralized it is, but I think I’m going to log off now and I don’t expect to be back anytime soon.

Ps. A functioning app I can download directly from the app store would be great. I’m not interested in progressive web apps or testflight betas, I want something that just works and is well refined.

Edit: I understand its early days, I’m not faulting devs for not being able to keep up, all I am doing here is expressing my opinion. I’m also sad about losing Apollo so that definitely adds to my disappointment quite a bit if I’m being honest.

    I’m using jerboa. It’s very similar to rif. I had zero expectations coming in. And that’s probably a big part of why I like it.

    It’s definitely buggy. Clunky. Etc. But I’m here for it, and I’m curious what becomes of it. It’s actually pretty intuitive, and the bugs will be ironed out as we go. It’s kind of like everything in life. It’s what we make it. And I really vibe with that.

    Tbh I don’t need perfect or easy. It’s home brew decentralized version of reddit. I can deal. But I understand your concerns and agree with all of them, but I’m just kind of enjoying the journey and viewing it as it’s own experience.

      +1 for the jerboa app. I’m finding myself searching around and engaging on the fediverse a lot more now because of it.

      95% of the time I spent on reddit was through the Relay app. Jerboa has definitely filled that void for me on the fediverse.
