I switch phones a lot. Because of this, I’ve been on the lookout for an Android app that would let me continue to use Micro.blog from my phone without having to use Quill to post, which is good but not ideal, and the Micro.blog website to view posts, which is also not ideal because of the lack of notifications, performance on the phone versus a native app, etc.
Dialog will take Micro.blog’s existing features, many of which you’ll find on the official apps for MacOS and iOS, and make them available for Android users. In addition, there are a number of features found on the website, such as pins, and some that are not, such as swipe functions, that will be available for Dialog users.
We’ve have just begun the development process as of December 2017 but we’ll be keeping users updated as progress is made. We don’t have a timeline in place and don’t want to push ourselves so an ETA of 2018 will have to do.
If you’re interested in seeing the design work so far, check out our project on Invision and share whatever questions or feedback you have with us as well. We’re always looking for ways to improve the finished application.
