Quick answers

We support Mastodon and anything that implements the Mastodon client API. That includes Pleroma and PixelFed.

We do not support account creation from within the app. You must find an instance and sign up there first.

We currently have poor interaction with the Firefox Android browser after adding a new account. Open the app again and it will work.

The home timeline is ordered by date posted, newest first.

Mastodon limits the timeline to 300 statuses total, including non-media.
