How much money do you spend on apps?
Thank you for having an Open Collective and giving people a viable alternative to the Play Store.
@fdroidorg I would definitely donate more, if there was a way around paypal or other such "services”.
So many sites are unethical. We always check sites for cloudflare, amazon and other dotCons before accessing their content (for news, if we *must* see their content we use prepend "web.archive.org/")
Simply press Ctrl+Shift+E to check for the #technoFeudalism, there are good banks and service that exist, they are in the vast minority regrettably.

@mondstern das ist scheinbar für nightly builds, also pakete, die jede nacht mit dem aktuellen entwicklungsstand gebaut werden. für tester
das projekt ist noch nicht nutzbar. sie sind aktuell in kontakt mit der EZB und weiteren banken bezüglich regulierung. auch die technologie ist noch nicht fertig
@davidak ist doch schön wenn es so etwas gibt.
Und ja ich weiss was nightly builds sind. Bin nicht auf den Kopf gefallen.
@fdroidorg I really try hard to find Free Software alternatives for everything which most of the time are free of charge too.
Is it so hard? I was able to replace everything with FOSS. And it feels pretty good. I have built my setup over several years. But always with apos from Fdroid and some trusted 3rd party repos. Always replacing good solutions with better ones. But I won't have done different with Playstore apps.
@mase yes it is fairly hard, a lot of hardware I use only works with proprietary software like all the Ubiquity stuff, Synology, Chromecast, Vacuum cleaner robot, etc. If possible I interact with it with free software but very often it's not possible.
@fdroidorg What counts an "app" for you? Everything for Android (your target platform)? Everything for Android or Apple? Or for all mobile phones? For all truly free&open platforms I know, apps aren't even strictly mobile specific. So it can even include desktop software? :) Does it count when I donate for an app that I could use on my mobile phone, although I actually use it solely on my desktop?
@fdroidorg I spend nothing on apps. But I buy external services (email, calendar, cloud storage) on a provider who use open sources servers and local infrastructures. It costs me 120$ /year
