Panic enters the Mastodon arena

Very pleased to see Panic (of Tweetbot fame) make a worthy successor for Mastodon. Priced at $2 per month or $15 for a year.

I picked up a copy last night. Mastodon as an ecosystem is still difficult to get started with, and the initial onboarding is a headfuck - once you follow a few people it starts feeling like the bird site of old.

Edit: I should note Panic have done a good job of cleaning up that initial onboarding/sign up experience.
