Gluon

A beautiful, lightweight and customisable cross platform app built for Micro.blog

Gluon is a highly opinionated, but customisable, cross platform app for Android and iOS for Micro.blog.

With Gluon, you can do the following:

A beautiful design

Gluon is beautifully designed by keeping it simple, without interrupting your content, for both Android and iOS. It’s built for great features whilst not getting in your way and not overwhelming you with bad design choices.

A powerful post composer

Write with Markdown and pull in links or images with the inline toolbar. You can even upload photos with a beautiful overview of your upload progress and previews that don’t get in the way. If you have a longer post you can even set a title to complement your post. Not ready to post yet? No problem with draft support. You can have as many drafts as you want and post at any time you wish.

Discover features

Go beyond Discover, on Micro.blog, by navigating to any emoji based post. Find out more about Micro Monday and when it’s time, take part in the various challenges that occasionally run on Micro.blog.

Simple, yet powerful, theming and customisation

Gluon comes with a great, out the box, auto switching theme with a beautiful accent colour. However, you can tweak everything from the app theme to the accent, to timeline spacing and many others. Like round avatars? You can have round ones!

A super gorgeous dark mode

Out the box you get a gorgeous auto switching theme depending on your OS theme. From black to a subtle grey, or you can keep it white. It’s up to you.

Built-in search

Ever wanted to search Micro.blog for a specific post and user? Now you can. It’s simple and quick using the official Micro.blog API. Want to search again for that same word in a few days time? No problem with Recent Searches.

Available on Android

In addition to the fully functioning iOS app, Gluon is available on Android with near perfect feature parity. It’s quick and feature rich. Get it on the Play Store!
