I need something else, and you also built the official app... erm...?

I suggest you use the official app, which I've built and is open sourced. You can get the official iOS app here, or the official Android app here. They're great!

I just released 2024.2 on the iOS App Store. Technically Gluon is on hold, details on my blog here and also the real reason that's driving this is here (people that are not worth it). Want Android or a maintained alternative app? See above. Want to get the TestFlight version? Link to it here.
