If your server has a support page, you should report any bugs/issues you encounter there first.
Reporting to your support page before reporting to the developers makes their job easier, as they don't have to deal with bug reports that might not have anything to do with them.
This helps us get new features faster.
You can also contact the [friendica support forum]( and report your problem there.
Maybe someone from another node encountered the problem as well and can help you.
If you're a technical user, or your site doesn't have a support page, you'll need to use the [Bug Tracker](
Please perform a search to see if there's already an open bug that matches yours before submitting anything.

###Client software
There are free software clients that do somehow work with Friendica but most of them need love and maintenance.
Also, they were mostly made for other platforms using the GNU Social API.
This means they lack the features that are really specific to Friendica.
Popular clients you might want to have a look at are:
* [Hotot (Linux)]( - abandoned
* [Friendica for Android]( - abandoned
* You can find more working client software in [Wikipedia](
As Friendica is using a [Twitter/GNU Social compatible API](help/api) any of the clients for those platforms should work with Friendica as well.
Furthermore there are several client projects, especially for use with Friendica.
If you are interested in improving those clients, please contact the developers of the clients directly.
* Android / CynogenMod: **Friendica for Android** [src](, [homepage]( - abandoned
* iOS: *currently no client*
* SailfishOS: **Friendiy** [src]( - developed by [Fabio](
* Windows: **Friendica Mobile** for Windows versions [before 8.1]( and [Windows 10]( - developed by [Gerhard Seeber](
