Mustard is a simple and easy to use Twitter and client for Android phones. As almost all clients, it can also be used with Friendica, the great decentralized social network. This very short tutorial will show you how to set it up:

First get Mustard from you Google Playstore or, even better from F-Droid. Next, open Mustard.

Mustard is a good way to start, but if you want to use a more elaborated client, I recommend to use Twidere instead. You can learn how to use Twidere with Friendica here.
