Final stretch before releasing Gluon. Feedback wanted.

It’s time to wrap up the development for Gluon. It’s especially important for me as I’m also going to share my new way forward in the coming weeks. But before I go ahead and share that, I want to complete the app (or at least write this post).

There are a few things I want to tackle before launch, namely:

  • Posting and reply screens to be re-written and make them way more awesome, that will also include image uploads and… “insert secret feature here”.
  • Posting to include MicroPub love - I promised this for launch, so I’m gonna do it.

There are many more little things that need to happen and be fixed, but they’re too boring for you to know about.

I’m also going to make progress on the Android version after the iOS release. It’s at 90% with feature parity so I’ll need a bit more time to work around some limitations that I’m hitting.

Saying that, there isn’t too much interest on yet another third-party Android app for (from what I gather). From what I see, and feel, everyone wants a first-party solution. I’m hoping this happens soon and also hope that Gluon showed that it can be done.

I don’t have a release date yet for iOS but will announce it as soon as I know more myself.

Feedback time

As I work on the specific tasks at hand, I’m looking at collecting the last round of feedback. So if you use it, please do let me know if something doesn’t work as expected or if you have any suggestions. You can reach me here:

I do try and reply to everyone that emails me. If I missed someone… sorry!

Anyway, thanks so much for using the app and your feedback to date.
