Font size is too big
Hello, I am new to lemmy and this is my first post. I use the "Jerboa for Lemmy" app, but I don't like that the size of the text font of posts and comments is big and I don't see an option to change the size. When I click "View Source" of a comment, it shows the comment in smaller size which it better and easier to read.

Feature request: ability to view inbox comment in context
I get a reply from someone but I want to see the context for our conversation: in Boost for Reddit I can do that. I can't do that with jerboa as far as I can see.

Search function
Hey, really enjoying using the app. Was wondering if a search function could be included? I know you can search for communities but it'd be nice to be able to search for posts like you can do on the website.

Multiple accounts shown in timeline
Hey all, Just wanted to ask whether it would be possible for multiple accounts to be shown in the timeline and not having to switch over to one to see posts from the other. Just like lemmur implements it.

## What's Changed * Fix prettytime crash. Fixes #238 by @dessalines in **Full Changelog**:

Jerboa F-droid version 0.0.19 is now optimized
I figured out the f-droid version wasn't using a minified / optimized version of jerboa. It should be must faster now.

Cross Post Button Missing?
Hi, Is it possible to cross Post with jerboa? In lemmur there's a button for that. Additionally, which app is considered to be used in the long term? Seems both are maintained, so is it just a matter of taste?

Features we'd like to see in Jerboa
I've always been a lemmur user. But since it became unmaintained and unusable to the point of not being able to log in, I had to make the switch to jerboa. Although the latter is more or less functional, its ui and ux are very limiting and lack many essential features in my eyes. Here's what I propose (if the lemmy devs are still interested in developing the app): - A settings page, similar to the website. - Default sorting: everytime I launchthre app I have to reconfigure the sorting from local & active to subscribed & new. but I found a way to fix that by clearing app data then once you launch the app fix the sorting before logging in and this will ensure that your preferences won't change after relaunch. - Ability to search posts and users. - open links in app instead of web, bonus points if includes links to communities and posts from a federated instance. - community stats in sidebar + trending communities - there's no way to see the sidebar of other federated instances from the app (or what communities they have). I didn't even know which instances federates with until I explored the website. - Cross-posting (?) - markdown editor with preview - see modlog of the instance (and other federated ones) and its communities. - fixing infuriating bugs when typing I recall that Dessalines said that he had to learn android programming from scratch to make the app. So it's understandable why we haven't seen any update in a while. But it is still a fact nontheless that we mobile users are neglected. Anyways, I'm leaving this post here if someone wanted to take reference for any future contribution to Jerboa or any other similar project. I would've loved to learn coding myself and contribute but at the moment I'm biting more than I can chew (maybe in the future I'd have some time who knows).

How to view modlog?

* Reverting back to old markdown renderer. Was much better overall. by @dessalines in * Debounce search box input. Fixes #154 by @dessalines in * Ability to delete posts and comments. Fixes #152 by @dessalines in * Comment tree rework 1 by @dessalines in **Full Changelog**:
