In case you missed it, there's a privacy-friendly alternative to Google Play.

It's called F-Droid and only includes free open apps that don't track you:

https://switching.social/ethical-alternatives-to-google-play/

The installation process is slightly complicated, but once it's been installed it's extremely easy to use.

You can also follow F-Droid on here at:

Holy Shit, mich hat schon lange eine #App nicht mehr so glücklich gemacht. Seit über einem Jahr warte ich bereits auf sie und endlich ist sie da.Ich glaube ich bin verliebt 😍

Danke danke, endlich kann ich auch gescheit von unterwegs am Handy meine #Decks managen.

Hat jemand eine Ahnung, wie ich bei #antennapod meine Feeds in eine OPML-Datei exportieren kann? ich finde das in der App irgendwie nicht mehr. #fdroid #podcast #android #opml


 
To #fdroid users, you noticed crashes with the last release (1.81.2). It's now fixed in 1.81.3 and this new version should be available soon. In the meantime, you can downgrade the release. Sorry for that. #Fedilab

Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!

I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)

Let's set up an #FDroid repository where you can publish releases quickly first and get that whole setup stable and polished. Think about abandoning GPlay later :-).

As you asked for three- I see people have already suggested two of the three I was thinking about

Third one I know on #fdroid is Aegis Authenticator (Free, secure and open source 2FA app to manage tokens for your online services) - https://f-droid.org/app/com.beemdevelopment.aegis


 
We're starting a #FDroid user-group! 🎉 Feel free to join us next week at my local hackerspace in Vienna, Austria. Save the date: 14.5. 18:30 !@metalab

All details on: https://metalab.at/wiki/FDroidMeetupVienna


 
Attention #Fennec #FDroid / #Firefox users: The critical 66.0.4 update is now available via F-Droid to fix the broken add-on support because of an expired certificate. That was incredibly fast for F-Droid standards! Don't forget to revert any unofficial fixes. https://f-droid.org/app/org.mozilla.fennec_fdroid

Meanwhile #Ubuntu users are still waiting for the latest Firefox update to be deployed. 🙄 #ArmagAddon #Android #Mozilla


 
@purism will you publish the android apps on #FDroid?


 
The version of #Fedilab for reordering timelines is available on #Fdroid (1.80.0)


 
I finally released in prod the version 1.80.0

This new release of #Fedilab introduces à full timelines customisation and the ability to pin followed instances and lists.

Release notes: https://gitlab.com/tom79/mastalab/tags/1.80.0

It should be available soon with #fdroid


 
#DeltaChat, a #messenger like #WhatsApp but #decentralized on top of #email, released version 0.301.1 in #fdroid,

#security #problem matrix.org

During the security incident on Matrix.org’s production infrastructure, the attacker may have had access to the key we use to sign the #Riot #Android #app. Unfortunately, it is impossible to replace this #key without replacing the application.
...
In future, we will be storing the signing key offline for maximum security.

#SecurityByDefault without any incident is too much for a #software project?

F-Droid will follow the name change but will do it at a later point the f-droid signing key wasn't exposed so technically there's no need to switch the appid but it would create some confusion and maintenance overhead to not follow, so this is our best option.

The latest version of G-Droid shows the apps that recently received a comment on a new panel. A nice way to make your favourite app a bit more visible to other users.

Get the latest version now on #fdroid or #gdroid .

If you enjoy using apps from @fdroidorg you might want to try the alternative client G-Droid:

@gdroid

G-Droid is F-Droid but with a more discovery-oriented interface. (For example, they've just added a "recently commented" panel, so you can see what people are talking about.)

You can download G-Droid from F-Droid itself.

(If you're new to F-Droid, here's a beginner's guide to installing it: https://switching.social/ethical-alternatives-to-google-play/)

You don’t have to use Google Play for apps on your Android phone.

There’s a free open alternative app store called F-Droid, which is much more privacy-friendly, and which you can install yourself relatively easily.

There’s a simple instruction guide for beginners on switching.social:

3. #FDroid should always be recommended for beginners. Especially on older Android versions. Many apps on F-Droid are supported for much older Android versions than apps from other sources. #PlannedObsolescence

It's not that complicated either. 1) download the apk, 2) allow unknown sources 3) install apk 4) enjoy your freedom

I've updated the prototype #fdroid page on switching.social, feedback still welcome:

https://switching.social/ethical-alternatives-to-google-play/

Is this clear for you?

Does this match your reality?


 
Working on an #FDroid page for switching.social, would be great to get some feedback on this:

https://switching.social/ethical-alternatives-to-google-play/

Is this easy enough to follow?

Does it match what you have to do to install F-Droid on your phone?


 
Use an android? Wanna pass time doing something that helps others have a means to not rely on google maps?

Check out the link below, install the app, and help #openstreetmaps improve their data whenever and wherever you may be. This app is pretty cool and it's kinda fun too. On #fdroid and... gurgle play store.

Fun fact:

The instance social.masto.host is indirectly funded by LineageOS + F-Droid.

Earlier, I was replacing my phone every 2 years with a new version of the same series. But last year, when my phone was ready for replacement (too slow, no Android updates), I flashed LineageOS + F-Droid on it instead.

I saved € 187.5 by not buying a new phone. This instance costs € 5 per month.

P.S. I know the exact cost because I bought one for a family member.

This #toot has been scheduled and published thanks to @fdroidorg 's recent upgrade from #Mastalab to #Fedilab. You can even #schedule #boosts now <3

This is a big step in user experience, thank you very much @tom79 ! I just donated you some Euros for this to help you keep the good work going.

Did you know that @gdroid an alternative client app to browse the #fdroid repository, allows you to leave comments on apps thanks to your Mastodon/Pleroma account?

The current version of G-Droid indicates in a small green text from/to what version an updateable app can be updated. The next version will offer ALL old versions of an app, just as it is in the F-Droid app as well.

Even if the article was written for non-technical users, it's strange to give the advice to use IOS instead of Android. Apple seems as bad (or even worse) in terms of spying/restricting users. It would have been nice to mention LineageOS and F-Droid which are real FOSS alternatives.

The Tox Project

https://tox.chat/index.html


Tox began a few years ago, in the wake of Edward Snowden's leaks regarding NSA spying activity. The idea was to create an instant messaging application that ran without requiring the use of central servers. The system would be distributed, peer-to-peer, and end-to-end encrypted, with no way to disable any of the encryption features; at the same time, the application would be easily usable by the layperson with no practical knowledge of cryptography or distributed systems. During the Summer of 2013 a small group of developers from all around the globe formed an
