@renem There were a few in development, but for now I think most apps are probably side projects and so it's always difficult to dedicate the time to ship them. And the platform has grown a lot over the last 6 months too.

@Ron I have started working on a GTK IndieWeb reader that would support posting to Micro.blog and could also act as a client, but my time is limited until this summer so it is far off.
