Any good app to track battery drain?

I need to do some test in order to decide which app in better in this.

From #FDroid would be perfect.

Boosts welcomed!

Apparently I'm not the only one to think traditional username/password authentication is obsolete and insecure. grc.com/sqrl/sqrl.htm

There's a client app for android (f-droid.org/en/packages/org.ea), but has anyone encountered a SQRL enabled website yet?

Hey Mastodon. I'm looking for a #FOSS app for #android to edit photos.

I would like to do basic editing such has cut and paste part of the image, filters ...
Light curve and cloning tool would be a nice extra.

I found nothing on #fdroid but maybe some of you know something !

Boost appreciated 😃

Today #Tutanota has been added to nomoregoogle.com/ 💪 👍 This is awesome as it will help spread the word about Tutanota as a secure email alternative to #Gmail. And while at it, make sure to get our Android app from @fdroidorg to fully get rid of #Google! 😁🎉 #privacy

In other news, our index hasn't been updating for 10 days in a row due to a bug, so apps are getting built, but not published.

We're on the case, and hopefully it's been fixed now. We won't know for sure until the next build cycle runs through, so fingers crossed!

You can find the technical details in gitlab.com/fdroid/fdroidserver

Wir freuen uns zu sehen, dass die ihr eigenes Repo betreibt: service.tagesschau.de/app/repo

Das ist ein großartiger Schritt in die richtige Richtung! Das Repo enthält die offizielle App der Tagesschau, die leider nicht frei und quelloffen ist, obwohl sie durch Steuergelder finanziert wird.

Wenn es sich um öffentliche Gelder handelt, sollte auch der Code öffentlich sein!

We're happy to learn (German public-service TV news) having their own -Droid repo: service.tagesschau.de/app/repo

It features their official app and is a great move towards user rights and freedom. Sadly the app isn't free and open source software, although it's financed by taxpayers’ money.

If it is public money, it should be public code as well.

privacy is your local scope where you perform your local reasoning

maybe people who don't think privacy is important are okay with programming by only mutating global variables

A nova versão do TWIF do @fdroidorg tem uns apps bem interessantes, como o EtchDroid e a volta do RaspiCheck do mundo dos mortos f-droid.org/en/2018/09/27/twif

Should we keep them? (Y/N)

Android P built from AOSP and self-signed running on a Pixel 2 with locked bootloader.

Sometimes less is more... 😉

With this new index update, the latest also finally went live:

Unfortunately the stretch upgrade caused delays in publishing, making the news about it already outdated. Nevertheless, enjoy this week's updates!

The social network #ScuttleButt is unusual:

-You can view and post messages while offline. It updates when a connection is next available.

-It optionally supports #MeshNetworks, so you can connect to others without the internet.

It's still quite tricky to use, but a new app called #ManyVerse is trying to make it easier:

manyver.se/

Currently on Android (on Play and soon F-Droid), with iOS and desktop Win/Mac/Linux on the way.
