Ivory is a new client of the decentralized social network Mastodon. Mastodon has garnered a lot of attention among the latest changes announced by Twitter recently. Developed by Tapbots (the same company behind Tweetbot), the app has been updated with an easier and more intuitive onboarding experience for new users.

Ivory gets option to create new Mastodon accounts
Version 1.3 finally allows new users to create a Mastodon account directly from the app. This makes the whole process much more streamlined. Especially since Mastodon can look complicated to those unfamiliar with the concept of decentralized social networks.
Now when someone opens Ivory for the first time, if they don’t already have a Mastodon account, the app will guide them to create one. Other improvements have been made to make the onboarding process more intuitive, according to the developer.
In addition to these enhancements, Ivory 1.3 also adds an option to allow users to remove accounts from their instances when they are removed from Ivory. This update also fixes a number of bugs and should make the app work more stable.
Ivory was created as a result of the demise of Tweetbot, which was discontinued after Twitter announced that developers could no longer create third-party clients for their social network using the official API. Those who were already using Tweetbot will find Ivory very familiar as it maintains all the same basics as the previous app.
In previous updates, Ivory added options for editing posts, reporting users, translation support, and more. The app also added the option for Tweetbot subscribers to transfer their remaining subscriptions to Ivory.
Ivory is available on the iPhone and iPad App Store. The app requires a $199/month or $14.99/year subscription, but can be downloaded for free for demo purposes.
