Topiary, for iPhone® and iPad® from Lightbeam Apps

You’ve been on Mastodon and the Fediverse for a while now, and need to trim back your home feed… Enter, Topiary!

Welcome to Topiary.

With Topiary, you can filter the accounts you follow based on their posting activity. If an account has been abandoned, you can make the choice to unfollow and reduce that clutter.

The app aims become a one-stop follower curation tool, with a steady road-map of features planned beyond this first release.

Try it today, and give things a trim!

Topiary supports Mastodon, Pleroma, Akkoma and PixelFed instances out of the box, via an open source library, TootSDK.

All feedback greatly received, so please get in touch.
