First dedicated App.net client finally on the App Store for iOSDamien Moye
AppNet Rhino is a collaboration between two Croatian companies – Planet 1107, who coded the app, and Marko Prljic of TwinkleTap, who dealt with the design duties. Now this is not the first iOS app to support App.net, the social post scheduling app Buffer was updated to support the Twitter-like service, not designed from scratch.
Actually there have been a number of other App.net apps have been submitted to Apple for approval, but AppNet Rhino has won the race to be first into consumers’ hands.
This app features a home timeline, a mentions stream and access to the global feed. There’s not much else as far as features goes, and it is said to be a bit less responsive than a competing app that have been tested in beta. There have also been complaints that feeds occasionally fail to load within the app. So, there’s room for improvement for this app.
AppNet Rhino is a free download.
