A weather app based on open data from the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) with weather forecasts, weather warnings for Germany and a rain radar:

@codeberg I'm currently updating my PHP library for VirusTotal to (at least partly) use the V3 API – so rescans and processing big files can be done with the free "public" API key (requires paid "private" key with V2).

May 15th is #DeleteWhatsAppDay.

Their new privacy policy makes the app unsuitable to those who require privacy and security.

We've teamed up with to help you leave WhatsApp for good. You can use Watomatic's auto-reply function to help people find you on Session.

Here's an example you could use:

'Hey! WhatsApp has chosen to share my personal information with Facebook, so I have chosen to leave WhatsApp.

You can reach me on Session at [Your Session ID here].'

Just download Watomatic, set an auto-reply message which includes your Session ID, and you'll be easily contactable to all your WhatsApp contacts even after you delete WhatsApp.

Detailed release notes:

Consider #NewPipe as your #YouTube App for Android. This app is more versatile, costumizable, and capable than Google's YouTube App.

And what's more important:
- you don't need a Google account
- the YouTube content is ad-free
- you can download videos
- it's free and open source
- ...

New map app recommendation: Organic Maps - - Available for Android and iOS. It is a privacy preserving Maps.Me fork providing users with beautiful vector tiles for offline maps and navigation. This is my favourite way for using #OpenStreetMap on a smartphone!

Die letzten Tage #whatsapp laufen. Nachdem ich diverse Kontakte bereits von #signal überzeugen konnte, #Watomatic hat mir dabei geholfen, habe ich nun den ersten und letzten Status meines Lebens in whatsapp eingerichtet.
Jetzt sehen auch wenig kontaktierte Kontakte von mir das ich am 15.05.2021 meinen Account bei whatsapp löschen werde.
Fühlt sich gut an.

📢 Shout out to @Mawoka for improving website. Removed insecure connections, cookies, made it support multiple languages, added German translation, eliminated CDNs and much more. 👏👏😃

Also checkout Mawoka's website:

Signal played Facebook at their own game. They bought Instagram ads to show to people the type of info Facebook collects using the platform’s own ad tools.

Facebook didn’t like was doing this and suspended their account 😂

Read about it here:

Gestern Abend gingen die Infotext an meine WhatsApp-Gruppen raus. Ich habe bislang nur positves Feedback. Einige Freunde sind mir schon in neue vorkonfigurierte Gruppen zu #signal gefolgt. Fühlt sich für mich so an, als müsste einfach jemand den Anfang machen und dann passiert auch was.

Jetzt wird noch #Watomatic konfiguriert und dann ist in 2 Wochen schluss mit #WhatsApp .

Schöner Nebeneffekt: Ich kann dann auch #shelter wieder von meinem Telefon löschen.
