The new push notifications in mobile web for Mastodon 2.0 are reallllllly good, indistinguishable from a native app now. I just pinned my mastodon server to my home screen and I no longer have any need for a dedicated app.
@iluxan my general MO is "weak opinions, weakly held" so pretty much I just like that I don't have to install anything and also if I want a feature in my mobile web app I can just fork my instance and add it
@darius Strange. I enabled it on our instance as soon as it dropped in 1.6, and we've been using it happily since then. In subsequent minor releases, they were polished and are now indistinguishable from native apps. We haven't upgraded to 2.0 yet.
@raucao@darius True, but I've seen plenty of people confused by that toggle (why would I use them instead of desktop notifications, there is not mention that they work when the tab is closed or on mobile - not to mention that the toggle is not present in browsers that don't support them).
