An Android client for PixelFed


Why use a dedicated app for Pixelfed when I can use any Mastodon-compatible app? Because sharing and viewing photos is just different enough from sharing and following random bits of everything that it’s worth using an app that’s optimized for it.

PixelDroid works smoothly, offers both grid and stream views, integrates well with other apps’ share intents and features a posting workflow that not only focuses (pun not intended) on images but makes it easy to add a description (alt text) for each photo in a post as you’re adding images.

It’s free and open source, and doesn’t vacuum up your personal data like certain other photo sharing apps I might name.

Online at PixelDroid. Available from F-Droid.
