AndStatus

Low traffic social networking client

A low traffic social networking client with tree-like threaded conversations.

It supports multiple protocols, including GNU social/StatusNet (e.g. Quitter, LoadAverage, Vinilox etc.), Twitter, Mastodon and Pump.io. It combines your accounts from all networks into one timeline and allows you reading and posting even while you are offline.

Differentiating features of AndStatus:

  • Many accounts in different social networking systems. You may have several accounts in each, write/reply as any "You" and share between accounts and systems.
  • You don't need to be online even to post your updates: not sent posts are kept (in the "retry queue") even after reboot.
  • Convenient tree-like "conversation view".
  • "Global search" allows searching public messages in all registered systems with one query.
  • Tweets/messages/user avatars are being synced in a background, when your device has a good connection.
  • Cached data may be stored for years or for several days only -- it's your choice.
  • Easily backup and restore accounts and data between your devices.

Packages

Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
