Indigenous for Android

Indigenous account screenshot

Indigenous allows you to engage with the internet as you do on social media sites, and post on your website or a federated instance like Mastodon, Pleroma or Pixelfed. You can also receive push notifications by creating an account on this website. Join the IndieWeb, it's fun!

You can install from Google Play or F-Droid

Some features are not available for Mastodon and Pixelfed, because they either don't make sense or the API doesn't support it yet. Pull requests welcome of course! To check authorizations of this app on your accounts, go to following url on your instance:

  • Mastodon: oauth/authorized_applications
  • Pixelfed: settings/applications
  • Pleroma: not found yet (info welcome!)
