I thought it would be a cool idea to do a poll right before the year ends to see what everyone is using

Android Poll

iOS Poll

    Sync!

    It was nice to migrate straight from Reddit and have the app seamlessly just switch right over.

      Yep! Sync was one of the easiest app purchases I’ve made in a long time. I spent probably 3 hours a day on average on Reddit, including both business and personal uses. It was well worth the money for something I rely on so heavily.

      Though, I’m a bit concerned about Dawson; it seems he’s gone dark.

        He’s done that in the past and may do it again.

        He is an amazing developer but I can’t help but think that he overworks himself.

          Yeah, honestly I don’t care as much about the app getting more updates as I do hope his mental health is good. But honestly it could just as easily be me projecting my own demotivators on him. He could just be chilling on a beach taking a nice year break.

          Yeah, I remember that from Reddit as well. I just hope he’s doing ok tbh

          I’m not him, and don’t know him, but I can say that I’m the type to make fuck tons of progress on my projects in like a month, and then disappear for a month. For me it’s not burnout or overwork, I just get in the groove and pour everything into my software and then fall out of it for a bit.

          I’ve had some users poke me about my Steam Deck plugin recently. I might go back to it eventually, but it feels “done” for now. I’m sure once I get another good idea for it and hit that groove I’ll be back to frequent updates.

          Considering he has a history of it I wouldn’t be surprised if it was a similar story. Hope he’s doing well.

      Same! I’m actually shocked it’s winning the poll. Not because it isn’t awesome I just never see anyone talking about it whereas others are always talked about. It’s such a seamless transaction from reddit.

    VPN user voting is not allowed

    WTF, why? I’m not turning off my VPN.

      Yup. Add me to the list of non voters due to VPN.

    Voyager, with Avelon as backup to find already read hidden posts as Voyager is a bit of a pain for that.

    also

      Lemmy as a whole is a pain for that. It’s one thing when in the feed I read/vote/comment something and I want that hidden from the feed to remove clutter. But when I specifically search for it or browse a community I don’t want those posts hidden. Obviously.

        Yeah, it’s easy to hide but difficult to show hidden in most apps. That’s why I appreciate Avelon’s “Show Read Posts” option under the 3 dots on the main feed.

      I prefer Voyager because it doesn’t sell my identity and current location to 3rd parties (DDG app confirms this). And it’s a straightforward app with most of the features I miss from Relay for reddit.

    Eternity has been perfect for my needs after Liftoff went on break. I can’t vote because of my VPN, though.

    Edit: That is, I can’t vote on Strawpoll. Eternity works perfectly!

    • @gedaliyahM

      Eternity is just the best. It’s not the most slick looking but it is feature rich and so snappy!

      I love Eternity! It’s the only app I’ve found that implements “swipe between posts” the way Joey and Reddit did. It’s super customizable too!

      The one feature I wish it had is “get reply notifications” for posts and comments that are not my own, but I’m still interested in. Anyone know of an app with this feature?

      I van vote just fine on my VPN with eternity. I did it right now.

      • @clothes

        Yeah, it’s a Strawpoll issue, not an Eternity one. For some reason “VPN voting is not allowed”. I could definitely bounce around servers/protocols to find one that works, but I’m not in the mood.

    Voyager app (Droid-ify, IzzyOnDroid) on mobile, and Alexandrite on desktop. Evocative of the kind of experience delivered by apps like Relay and browser extensions like RES, to name two at random from a small sample.

      I just found Alexandrite and it is eye-opening! Beautiful and every feature is perfectly intuitive

      Yeah. I started with jerboa initially then jumped on eternity for some time. Now using voyager.

      Liftoff is so good, I don’t know what I’ll do if it stops working

    • @LifeInMultipleChoice

      35 months ago

      Something off with it to me, I have been using Jerboa mostly and boost if there are issues. It might be the having to hold down instead of tap to minimize things I’ve read, or the dark mode having to have the blue instead of just being grey, I keep going back to Jerboa

  • @[email protected]

    Sync as my daily driver. Connect as my backup.

    Summit, jerboa, liftoff, voyager, and boost all get occasional use.

  • Lee Duna

    Primarily was Liftoff, but since the dev is busy with IRL. Then I moved to Jerboa as the main app.

    I was using Memmy initially but ran into an issue with top comments not being displayed.

    I’ve since switched to Voyager and it’s pretty good so far. A few quirks that I think are still being worked through with swipe navigation, but I’m sure it’ll get pinned down.

    • @[email protected]

      That’s good to know. I’m new and by chance fell into Memmy. It’s always weird and crashes randomly.
