Items tagged with: FDroid

Keine ganz neue Erkenntnis: #Android-Apps können Berechtigungssperren des Systems umgehen und entsprechende Daten ihrer Nutzer*innen abgreifen - ein Grund mehr Apps aus dem #PlayStore grundsätzlich zu misstrauen und auf freie Alternativen via #FDroid zu setzen.

I published the version 2.10.0 (in beta for few days for Google, in prod for #Fdroid).

Release notes:

A new feature allows to export/import your blocked domains and share this list with comments.


We just released #FDroid v1.7 which includes new PanicKit responses: uninstall any app on the device, and, reset repos to default

„Vertrauen ist gut, Kontrolle ist besser“
Was auf zwischenmenschliche Beziehungen vielleicht nicht immer zutrifft, ist bei Computern aber auf jeden Fall richtig. Wie #Reproduzierbarkeit genau dieses Thema bei #FDroid verbessert, kannst Du hier lesen:

Ever wanted to know what this #ReproducibleBuilds thing is about? Read about it and what it means at #FDroid on my blog:

Our local #FDroid user-group today was great. Since it's holiday season, we had a bit fewer visitors, but that gave us a chance to have a lot of engaging indepth conversations and hands on experiences about topics like:
* verifying our binaries
* lineage device support
* /e/
* F-Droid configuration
* etc.

This time @metalab was very hospitable. (No jackhammering :awesome:). Our live demos also worked surprisingly well, thanks to #ScreenStream. I'm really looking forward to the next one.

I wonder if they also did the same with the #FDroid release?

#Fedilab 2.9.1 is available on #Fdroid 🎉

Oh well! The free version of #Fedilab has been removed by Google.

I know people started to report it. But... Why the reason is for "payments policy violation"? I appealed for that but I will not re-upload anything for this version.

Don't forget to get it with #Fdroid:

or the version built from sources. Follow @mastalab for links to apk.

Strangely, the paid version is not *currently* affected.

#OpenStreetMap, et l'appli android #OsmAnd distribuée sur #fdroid sont indispensables pour partir en vacances: vous pouvez afficher, autour de vous, les campings, ou les stations services, ou les distributeurs de billets, les hôtels... et tout ceci gratuitement, sans traqueurs et même sans connexion !

L'open-source, c'est l'avenir 🙂

#Fedilab 2.8.1 is available on #Fdroid.

The release 2.8.0 had a lot of new features, you can have a look to release notes here:

You can disable the quick reply feature in settings if you don't like to reply below statuses.

For other questions, let me know.

Hello everyone! #FDroid Vienna Meetup is now on mastodon. 🎉

Against all tradition I just submitted a talk to @PrivacyWeek CFP before the deadline. Lets see if they're interested in: "Privacy built in: F-Droid App Store". #pw19 #FDroid

I still got a voucher code for droidcon Berlin, which is 1st - 3rd July, i.e. next week.

If anyone from the #FDroid/FOSS Android world wants it, feel free to send me a message.

PSA: puisque j'en suis à réinstaller mes applis, sachez que Bitwarden pour Android a un dépôt #fdroid à l'adresse

APK également dispo sur leur GitHub.

C'est une version dégooglisée sans Firebase, donc sans push, alors il faut synchroniser manuellement avec son "vault". C'est le prix de la liberté :P

À part ça, ça marche pareil. Mais sans Google.

#Fedilab 2.7.0 is available on #Fdroid 🎉

reminder: #FDroid also ships developer-signed APKs if they can be built reproducibly. This is a very strong safeguard against tampering.

Sadly only a few app devs have a setup for shipping this way.

Google #PlayStore offers no such safeguard.

this is changing the trust model. Not sure if it's worse though. This is the same model #FDroid has used since the beginning.

Oh schade ich hätte gehofft du bekommst mehr. 😦

Was hälts du eig. von ? Für dein #Android repo evt. interessant. Ich würde das auch für #FDroid gerne sehen. Hab aber 0 Hoffnung dass Ciaran (der einzige mit Zugriff auf auf die Spendenkonten) so einen account betreiben möchte ...

#Fedilab 2.4.0 is available on #Fdroid 🎉

#Fdroid builds have been moved to #framagit 🎉
You should get soon the release 2.4.0 :)

I just started to download an app from GooglePlay (out of habit) but ran into a server error. So I found an even better app through #fdroid, and it downloaded with no problem—and is freer as a wonderful bonus.

Score one (more) for free software

Heute um 21 Uhr auf der #GPN19: "Freiheit zum mitnehmen: Ein #Workshop von An- zu F- zu G-Droid" im ZKM_Ackerspace:

#FreieSoftware #Android #Fdroid #Gdroid #Orbot

@Sw0rdDooM @pv ich würde eher zu LineageOS MicroG greifen. Da ist microG gleich dabei, was nicht schaden kann und #Fdroid mit #PrivExt vorinstalliert, was super hilfreich ist.

Looks like a new metronome application has landed in #fdroid

Mein #Workshop "Freiheit zum mitnehmen" auf der 19. #Gulaschprogrammiernacht ist angenommen worden \°/

Also wer auf der #GPN19 ist und Bock auf #fdroid und #gdroid hat oder Lust verspürt sie kennenzulernen, kommt vorbei!

#FreieSoftware #Android

@fdroidorg @gdroid

Why does #FDroid still show me 1.6 as suggested (and installed) while there are already 1.6.1 and 1.6.2 available?

Having been involved in the #FDroid project in the last 3 years I've used #Gitlab a lot during this time.

Not only do I find it more intuitive to use by now (and github is slowly copying features that gitlab introduced years ago), it also really makes a difference that the development of gitlab itself is open.

Got an bug/feature request? Jump into the issue tracker and help shape the discussion about it. Or someone might even jump in and provide an implementation for it.


hab nun was gefunden in #fdroid
is nur noch nicht gemalt

I exported all my #Fedilab datas, uninstalled the Google Play app, reinstalled from @fdroidorg, imported my datas back and in a second all my accounts were back and perfectly working! That's amazing!,

Thank you a lot @tom79 to force me to switch, I also replaced many of my proprietary apps with FOSS alternatives and I'm fully satisfied! And thanks to #Fdroid community for this great tool!

#FOSSispoetry #FOSSdoesitbetter

@torproject In #FDroid there are now two Tor browsers if you have the #GuardianProject repo enabled, both are the same version, but the Guardian Project version is still called (Alpha).

Will these be the same, will the Guardian version disappear or will it be the beta channel?

@torproject @thomas_rader is it on #fdroid ? or am I missing it?

Quelle est l'app météo que vous conseilleriez sur #fdroid ? Merci d'avance. 🙂

This release is now available with #Fdroid

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:

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:


#AppStores #GooglePlay #Alternatives #FDroid #Huawei #DeleteGoogle #Privacy

The #app #llCrop ( which is available on #fdroid) implements #lossless #jpg #photo #cropping on #android.

The next version 1.1 will add the workflows GET_CONTENT / PICK / share / SEND / SENDTO to pick / re-send a cropped photo.

i love #fdroid ❤️

thats my homescreen

😊 so muss das

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

#mastoart #fdroid ❤️


That's my hundredth self-painted acrylic picture.

@tom79 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 :-).

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. :)
