The Ivory app now allows users to create a new Mastodon account
Ivory is a new client for decentralized social network Mastodon, which has recently received a lot of attention amid the latest changes announced by Twitter. The app, developed by Tapbots (the company behind Tweetbot), has just been updated to give new users a simpler and more intuitive sign-in experience.

Ivory will be given the option to create a new Mastodon account
With version 1.3, new users can finally create an account on Mastodon directly from the app. This makes the whole process much simpler, especially since Mastodon can seem complicated to those unfamiliar with the idea of a decentralized social network.
Now, when someone opens Ivory for the first time, the app prompts the person to create a Mastodon account if they don’t already have one. According to the developers, further improvements have been made to make the installation process more intuitive.
In addition to these improvements, Ivory 1.3 allows users to delete an account from an instance when it is removed from Ivory. This update also fixes a bunch of bugs that make the app more stable.
Ivory was created as a result of the demise of Tweetbot, which went down after Twitter announced that developers would no longer be able to create third-party clients for the social network using its official API. Those who were already Tweetbot users will be very comfortable with Ivory, which has kept the same basics as the previous app.
With its previous update, Ivory added options for post editing, user reporting, translation support, and more. The app also allowed Tweetbot subscribers to transfer their remaining subscription to Ivory.
Ivory is available on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. The app requires a subscription of $0.199 per month or $14.99 per year, but is free to download for demonstration purposes.
