Happy Chanukka, happy 2nd advent – and here comes a little present: I've just put the first article of my F-Droid series online. "F-Droid: The privacy-friendly alternative to Google Play Store" can be found at

Die deutsche Fassung verzögert sich noch ein wenig. Wer es nicht abwarten kann, kauft sich die c't 25, der ich (nach Vereinbarung mit Heise) ein paar Wochen Vorsprung geben muss 😉

@IzzyOnDroid Pretty good post! 👏👏👏
Could I translate it into Spanish? In my personal blog ( I often try to educate local people in privacy and ethical tech. This could be a good entry.
Proper credits and link to the source will be given, of course, plus a little introduction about your past & current work in the f-droidiverse.
The imprint page mentions some CC-BY-NC-SA license, but kindly asking is better, :)

@RoboePi Go ahead! And yes, I usually publish all my writings as CC-BY-NC-SA. But as you, I feel it a nice gesture to ask (did that with Heise as well, as they paid for the German article but the copyright/author's-right stays with me; always better information comes in first-hand 😉).

Spread the word :)

Once your article is online, please let me know and I'll link back to it from my English one. And @fdroidorg might be interested as well.

Thanks 👍

@IzzyOnDroid @fdroidorg Great! Thank you! 🤗

Yeah, of course! It will probably take me some time, busy weeks and stuff, but I'll ping you and the F-Droid team when finished, 📳

May the freedom be with you! 🆓📲, 🙋‍♂️
