I’m really not happy with Lemmy so far. Its a great community and a cool concept, but the amount of bugs I am experiencing is really starting to put me off.

The site constantly updates / glitches, when I try click on something it moves just before I click so I end up clicking on something else. If I open a post, as soon as I go back the entire home feed is different and my sorting preferences have been reset.

As someone coming from the refinement from Apollo this really is offputting and makes me want to use Lemmy even less.

The people here are great, the federation is cool and I like how decentralized it is, but I think I’m going to log off now and I don’t expect to be back anytime soon.

Ps. A functioning app I can download directly from the app store would be great. I’m not interested in progressive web apps or testflight betas, I want something that just works and is well refined.

Edit: I understand its early days, I’m not faulting devs for not being able to keep up, all I am doing here is expressing my opinion. I’m also sad about losing Apollo so that definitely adds to my disappointment quite a bit if I’m being honest.

    Why so hostile? Can you explain exactly what makes you so angry?

      There’s nothing hostile about saying he’s welcome to stop using the product if he’s unhappy with said product. You’re the one taking it defensively.

        I really don’t think you get the point of that post. It’s a feedback and he is certainly not the only one thinking that. As a Dev myself I can tell you that having this kind of people is more than helpful. They say what they think you are more aware of what the community is asking. When you are alone on a project, you most of the time miss what real issues it have

          This is FOSS, and the GitHub tickets are public, and can be submitted at any time. That is the single best way to provide feedback, and a dev should know that. Aside from that, there are significantly more constructive ways to provide feedback than what’s provided in this entitled post. A dev in a team environment should also know that. If I submitted something like this to my IT at work I’d get ignored and/or receive an angry reply from their product manager.

          I get the point of the post just fine. If you want to stay on your high horse in defense of aggressive complaints worded like bad air bnb reviews, feel free. There are a million other posts about Lemmy bugs submitted significantly more cordially and positively than this one.
