Moon, my Indie Hackers app, is still growing despite the lack of milestone updates (sorry about that)!
To keep it short, Moon now does these cool things:
If you're already signed up for the beta, you should be receiving an email from TestFlight to download
Moon 0.2 (5). If you'd like to get the beta, head over to https://themoon.app.
I'm open to any and all feedback so hit me up here on IH or Twitter or email or through TestFlight. Whatever works for you.
Thanks for the support!
Note: I cross-posted this to the IH Meta group since I felt it was relevant.
Moon Beta 2 is out 👨🚀❗
This update has been a long time coming. Turns out working a full-time job, being a new dad and shipping regularly is kinda hard. But I'm proud of what I built in the cracks of time that I find to work on Moon!
Here's a bunch of new stuff you can do with Moon:
• Tap any username (in a post, comment or @tag) to see their profile.
• Profiles show their photo, follower counts, points, bio, comments, posts, products and links to email, tweet or follow them on IH.
• Tap a comment or post in a user's profile to jump to it in the forum.
• Tap the filter button (top left) to filter the forum by top, new, milestones or any of the 38 IH groups.
• Tap the group name in a post to jump to that feed.
• Tap any URL (in a post, comment or bio) to open it in Safari.
Fall Back to the Web App
• For features not yet in Moon (posting, commenting, voting, etc) tap to jump straight to that page in the IH web app.
• Accurate vote counts
• Deleted comments are hidden
• No disabled buttons
These were all requested by beta testers like you.
So thanks for the feedback! And thanks to @csallen for building a great forum, podcast and community.
Feedback is appreciated, as always!
Find me here on IH or Twitter @levidxyz or email (levi at themoon.app)
I recently took a break from coding on Moon to throw together a super simple landing page using Carrd.
A couple weeks ago I announced the private beta for my Indie Hackers iOS client, Moon.
Here's some pretty cool stats for Moon 0.1:
📆 17 days since private beta announced
👩🔬 18 active beta testers (23 invites)
📱 250+ sessions
💬 19 feature requests
🐛 0 bugs
💥 0 crashes
👨🚀 1 happy app developer
I'm thrilled with the early adoption and initial feedback I've received from all of my new Indie Hacker friends! I'm going to put all the existing feature requests as comments to this post so that anyone who wants to +1 a request or has some thoughts on it can reply/upvote (I'm still trying to figure out the easiest way for people to leave feedback 🤷♂️).
Thanks so much to all IHers beta testing Moon 0.1:
Moon is now available for private beta! If you're an Indie Hacker on the go and want to give my iOS client a spin let me know and I'll send an invite 👍
If you want to see a clip of the app in action, here's me zipping around IH with it this morning.
Boom. Another feature down.
Here's clip of group filtering. I'll keep posting the latest progress on Moon to that account so feel free to follow 😉
I've still got some important (but less flashy) improvements to make. Detecting hyperlinks, usernames, that sort of stuff.
But once I get that in I'd love to take this thing into private beta! So if anyone's reading this and is interested in giving Moon a try leave a comment here or tweet at me!
Happy hacking 👨🚀
I've been hacking away at Moon this week and now we've got nicely threaded comments for every post 💪
Check out this quick clip of a comment thread in action.
Next up: Groups! @csallen seems to be leaning into IH Groups lately so I'm pushing group filtering to the front of the Moon to-do list. Which btw looks kinda like this now:
🌕 Top posts, Milestones, Post bodies, Comments
🌖 Group posts
🌗 Proper sorting
🌘 Markdown rendering
Checkout this quick clip of the app so far
Static screen shots here
Still lots of work to be done! Here's the "roadmap" (in order of work completed):
🌕 Top posts
🌖 Group posts
🌗 Proper sorting*
🌗 Post bodies
(*) cc @csallen I may need to use a lifeline for these 😉
Moon is an Indie Hackers client for iOS.
