How to botch a good idea:

The #Android app "Too Good To Go" shall help avoid throwing away food that's still good to eat (but ran over the sell-by-date). You can find what markets close to you participate in the action and offer something today, saving money on the way.

Great idea, BUT: I'd never install that app. Comes with far too many trackers. Including Facebook and Google Crashlytics. Sad.

#privacy #apps

This I wanted to do for so long already:

App details including information on which trackers are shipping inside an app! Finally done!

(icons next to the tracker name link to details on the tracker at Exodus and Appbrain)

My repo is back on 404 (apps, not response code). Now that my test device is ready, I've checked some of the "oldies": working ones got screenshots, broken ones got removed. Screenshot ratio increased in either case, as removed ones had none 🤣

To be continued. Bed time now.

Your help is much appreciated: if in my repo, you find an app that doesn't work / is broken, please report it (via the repo's GitLab tracker at, here at Mastodon or by mail) – I cannot check them all by myself.

Similarly, if you miss an app that should be there and meets the repo's criteria: let me know, I'll take a look and usually include it.

Oh: same goes for my app listings, GitLab tracker at

Thanks! And boosts welcome :awesome:

#Android #apps

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:

The F-Droid version remains at its current address:

OK, jährlicher Listenputz ist wieder durch: Altlasten entfernt, Links von http auf https upgradet (wo immer möglich)… Als nächstes kommt dann noch der "SpringerCheck", da könnten noch einige Links wegfallen.

Thanks to @exodus (sorry folks for having put a bit load on your site during the past few days; I'm back to normal now), coverage on what apps on my app listings are tainted by what trackers now is close to 95%

Thanks for offering that great service 🙇

What app listings? These:

Watch out for those monitor icons (really offensive trackers) – but also for those yellow stars (no trackers found) next to the apps 😃

I love @fdroidorg but one feature I miss is "Changelogs" for apps. I'd like to know what this new update for my favourite app offers me. Is there a new feature? Or is there a critical bug fix?

Who else thinks we need this feature in #Fdroid?

RT Was looking for a podcast app in order to listen and found on and I mush say, I am very pleased! #foss #podcasts #apps

Have you heard of StreetComplete? It's an Android app that shows you open questions/issues with OpenStreetMap in your area, and asks you to answer them.

It's made for people with no experience with #OpenStreetMap, so it shows only very simple questions that can be answered very clearly. ("What is printed on this street sign?", "What's the number on this house?")

It's available on @fdroidorg, of course! #mapping #android #apps #recommendation
