This is an unofficial webview based client for the community-run, distributed social network diaspora*.


This is an unofficial webview based client for the community-run, distributed social network diaspora*. It's currently under development and should be used with that in mind. Please submit any bugs you might find.


The app is developed as a WebApp because currently diaspora* doesn't have an functional API that can be used to create a native interface to retrieve the user's data, publications, direct messages and so on. That's why there are currently only WebApps for diaspora* out there. Stay tuned on diaspora* issues about API.

Why is a WebApp better than using the mobile site on a browser? Basically it provides better integration with the system (events coming into and going out of the app), notifications, customized interface and functions and a nice little icon that takes you directly to your favorite social network :)

Device Requirements

The minimum Android version supported is Jelly Bean, Android v4.2.0 / API 17
