      How do I hide, or limit the height of images people embed into their comments such as this one, in Boost?

      This image is huge for example, and ideally I just want a small version I can tap to expand, and not have to scroll past this whole thing (plus it seems like it’s cropped on the sides, only showing half a phone screen on either side - or maybe that’s the full image I don’t know?).

      Thanks!!

        That’s probably something Rubén needs to handle. I didn’t realize it would come out this huge lol. That’s why we’re bug testing this!

      One feature that’d be nice to have is the ability to add other instances as guest accounts.

      Needed to change the icon colour to help differentiate the apps 👌

        Yeah I switched the Reddit one to greyscale right after.

          Too bad they can’t update the Reddit one to add an icon for the rocket on a Reddit tombstone 🤭

            I’d say make it a crashed rocket

        Why keep the old one installed at all? Surely it doesn’t work since they disabled the API, as absolutely fantastic as it was, now it’s just a dead app taking up disk space.

      Quick question. I thought Reddit’s API price debacle (the entire reason I’m here instead) forced Boost for Reddit to shut down, or at the very least charge a high price. I’m surprised to see it still working. What exactly is going on?

            API keys is what identifies the client/application. So basically, Reddit sees it as me using a personal custom app or script, and it’s therefore not blocked.

            They didn’t shut down the API, they just made it prohibitively expensive to use. For most people, that falls into the free tier.
