The excellent Mastodon/PeerTube/Pleroma app Mastalab has changed its name to "Fedilab", to reflect that it works on many Fediverse services.

Fedilab is available through Google Play and @fdroidorg

The new site is at:
fedilab.app

Their Fediverse account remains the same though, it's still at:
@tom79

(It's also due to get PixelFed support soon.)

@switchingsocial
I think it doesn't support Pleroma, but GNU Social.
Outstanding app, by the way.
@fdroidorg @tom79

@bauglir
@switchingsocial @fdroidorg
It supports Mastodon, Pleroma, Peertube, GNUSocial, Friendica and soon Pixelfed.
I am already using these accounts :)

For Pixelfed, you need to wait their api.
But here is a screenshot from the app using it
pixelfed.social/p/tom79/32416

@switchingsocial
Yes, in 1.73.0. But it's limited due to their api. Someone told me they are working on. So I will follow updates.
@bauglir @fdroidorg

@tom79
FYI I get this error trying to follow my Friendica-user. It shows up through search though, which it didn't do previously.
@switchingsocial @bauglir @fdroidorg

@tom79
I'm looking at the login screen, and there's no Pleroma or Friendica options. How do you log into those networks? Selecting Mastodon option?
@switchingsocial @fdroidorg

@bauglir
Yes, I need to update that. For Pleroma choose Mastodon, for Friendica choose GNU.
@switchingsocial @fdroidorg

@tom79 @switchingsocial @fdroidorg Ok, thank you. Very good job with your app, man; congratulations.

@tom79

I have long wanted to move from Google #PlayStore to #F-droid also for Mastalab, but could not do that without loosing all my Mastalab #bookmarks ...

Is it (yet) possible to move from #Mastalab to #Fedilab without such loss?

@bauglir @switchingsocial @fdroidorg

@tom79

ok, just to be on the safe side;

- Could I run into trouble if I use Mastalab and Fedilab _simultaneously_ on the same phone while having the same accounts on both, imported into Fedilab, or do you think that should work?

(would be practical to be able to compare after import, and to run them in parallel a short while...)

@bauglir @switchingsocial @fdroidorg

@FuzboleroXV @bauglir @switchingsocial @fdroidorg

Sorry, I was unclear on this part. You have nothing to do for having Fedilab. It's simply an update. In other words, Mastalab app will be automatically replaced by Fedilab app (name and logo) and all your current data will be kept. You will not lose anything.

@tom79

oh, ok, so will that also happen/work when installing #Fedilab through #FDroid after the existing #Mastalab initially was installed through Google Play Store?

@FuzboleroXV @fdroidorg @switchingsocial @bauglir @tom79 when switching an app installed by play store to same app on fdroid, you have to uninstall it first.

@tom79

Going to try immediately (I couldn't update for a while from f-droid with APK not found errors).

@FuzboleroXV @bauglir @switchingsocial @fdroidorg

@tom79 Strange, it is not working. I'm on v1.13.1 and latest version of f-droid (samsung s7).

Download failed, mastodon_222.apk not found.

f-droid suggested version is 1.63.0

@FuzboleroXV @bauglir @switchingsocial @fdroidorg

@humanetech
This is a really old version from september 2018.
Last one on fdroid is 1.72.1 and soon 1.73.0
@FuzboleroXV @bauglir @switchingsocial @fdroidorg

@tom79

The versions you mention are not in the list of available ones. Should I reinstall from Google Play?

@FuzboleroXV @bauglir @switchingsocial @fdroidorg

@tom79

Never mind. I got it. Thought f-droid would automatically show latest updates when going to that window, but I had to 'drag down' to trigger a refresh.

Yay, I'm on Fedilab 🎉
Thanks so much for all the great work on this project!!

@FuzboleroXV @bauglir @switchingsocial @fdroidorg

@switchingsocial @fdroidorg @tom79 this app is great ! I use it every day. The multi services support shows how superior and full of possibilities is an open standard for the open web !
