The Android app #Fedilab allows multiple accounts on multiple Fediverse services (incl. Mastodon, Friendica, PeerTube, Pleroma and GNU Social).

It's now charging for its Google Play version while keeping the F-Droid version free of charge, to encourage people off Google Play.

The Play version has a new address:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=app.fedilab.android

The F-Droid version remains at its current address:

https://f-droid.org/packages/fr.gouv.etalab.mastodon/

Hmm, that's bad, because f-droid doesn't work for everyone well and a lot of users can't do tech support, nor can they pay for things.

I've seen a few examples of people here on the fediverse recently who this applies to and I think they should reverse their decision because f-droid does break or just not work sometimes whereas like it or not, Google Play just works.

It's still on Google Play, but the developer is charging a couple of dollars for it.

It is ok for developers to charge for their work.

Paying people for their work is a much more ethical model than trackers and ads.
