Following up on the @exodus discussion: The app does a lookup into an online db for installed apps. As F-Droid often has the same apps as gplay but with trackers disabled or patched out this would obviously result in false positives.

@exodus Supporting yalp installed apps should work in the future but requires cooperation form yalp store marking the apps corretly on install, same for F-Droid installed apps.

Hope I got that right, @Schoumi

@fdroidorg @exodus @Schoumi
I use Yalp Store, since the apps appears to update more sooner than Fdroid it's tends towards to delete the fdroid install to replace with them (user option). I don't know if I make myself clear.

@esplenio @fdroidorg @exodus Yalp store is Play Store but i can't easily detect that their installed by Yalp for now. So i prefer not to show a report than showing a wrong report.
A company who think my wrong report cost damages to them could sue me and exodus for the money lost. So we prefer act step by step on each work.

Thanks for the clarification, that helps a lot. Though I think, the trackers shouldn't be there from the beginning...

@fdroidorg
"but with trackers disabled or patched out"
How? Is that f-droid who disable or patch out trackers?
@exodus

@remich For some apps there is a build flavour provided by upstream to comply with F-Droid';s inclusion process. sometimes this work is done by a third party and included as a patch in the fdroiddata repo.
