So for anyone who wasn't following, Google pressured a bunch of #fediverse app developers to do an impossible thing and in the end they had to delete their app off the Play Store
Here is a good synopsis by @SubwayTooter
Some mobile #fediverse apps that recently came out!
#Tubelab (a #PeerTube client for Android)
*Let’s discuss groups* (on the Fediverse)
do you want to see groups working on the #fediverse? are you a dev? are you not a dev but want to have a say in how this will eventually work? please come make your voice heard in this forum. #FediDev #MastoDev

"Suggestion: a custom URL scheme handler as a streamlined UX for cross-instance interactions on the web"
@grishka and @matt are discussing some important issues with the UX of the #fediverse over on the SocialHub forum. Would love to see more progress on this front. The UX of cross instance/software interaction is quite horrible at the moment and is something we really need to move forward on. Please come give your constructive ideas here:
@email@example.com should really display as @▲@▲.tk and there is no reason that shouldn’t be a valid handle. of course we need security measures in place for homograph attacks but that should not stop us from supporting the worlds languages.
