  • View user profiles and follow, or, unfollow.
  • Customise the app from accent colours, timeline fonts, icons and much more.

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!
