I'm doing a little poll here to prove a point to a friend.

How many of you current #Android users use #FDroid? If you're not on Android any more, did you use F-Droid when you were?

Can anyone recommend a code editor for the Android platform? Prefer something on @fdroidorg if possible.

Rather use the #Exodus App from #FDroid or the Exodus Website:
exodus-privacy.eu.org/
#Yalp Store also scans all apps for trackers using the Exodus service.

OK, jetzt sind alle @exodus bekannten Tracker erfasst (nicht nur die, welche auch Appbrain kennt). Ergebnis: kleine Sprünge in der Statistik. Jetzt gibt es u.a.

- 1 App mit 20 Trackern*
- 2 mit 19, 18, 17
- 8 mit 16
- 18 mit 15
- 36 mit 14
- 45 mit 13 …
- 1123 mit 3 …
- 60% mit 1+L

Wohlgemerkt nur von den 14k Apps in meinen Listen. Und das sind nur *Tracker, die mir als invasiv bekannt sind – da können also durchaus auch weit mehr verbaut sein …

Sad that there is no Twitch client on @fdroidorg
I found TD in archive but it is old and has issues. Than there is github.com/SebastianRask/Pocke but not on F-Droid because of google and other tracking librarys. I tried to remove them but had issues without the libs. Maybe others can help?

If you are interested in examining the privacy implications of Android apps, there is google chrome extensions Exodus Privacy is a great tool. For example, it reveals these 19 trackers in Deezer and 9 trackers in Spotify (it seems you are tracked even if you pay €€€)

@fdroidorg Could you please suggest the best and reliable bitcoin wallet on Android?

A new version of my favourite privacy friendly web browser called Privacy Browser for Android has just been released.

It blocks JavaScript, cookies and all other goodies by default and it supports both global and per-domain settings for everything you can think of, like JavaScripts, trackers and cookies.

It makes browsing the modern web on my 3 year old phone actually decently fast.

And it's available via @fdroidorg. :)

I published the release 1.18.1 that fixes the crash when the app starts.
I am really sorry, it affects a lot of #fdroid users. That's due to a mistake with a db migration between two releases.
If you don't care to lose your bookmarks and followed instances, just reinstall the app. Otherwise, please wait for the fix. #mastalab

Liberapay is far from perfect and hasn't fully recovered from the Mangopay crisis yet, but it's still great in many ways and I am proud of it. #Liberapay

Is there an app on F-Droid that can read out loud (TTS) ebooks?

I think LineageOS comes with a built-in TTS engine called Pico TTS. I'd be happy to find an app (like an epub or pdf reader) that can at least leverage Pico TTS and read out text. Really missing the Google Play books TTS after the switch to LineageOS + F-Droid.
