@themightyglider @Aznorth I agree! I myself come from a potato phone (by current standards), a Samsung Galaxy Core Duos. @fdroidorg did wonders for it and I'm thankful.

God, this new phone is making me appreciate how awful proprietary software is in comparison to open source. Escaping from the built-in apps to f-droid was such a relief. But of course, most of the thing is still proprietary and sketchy as hell. I'm not even allowed to disable that stalkery music app, for example. I really need to work on getting myself a good open source phone. :/

To all those wanting to have some app listed in my repo (e.g. because they can't have it included with the official F-Droid repo for some reason):

My Updater now also can fetch APKs from GitLab tags.

Description on the GitLab repo for my repo (oops) updated accordingly: gitlab.com/IzzyOnDroid/repo (file your requests in its issue tracker, please).

Hi everyone. is up on at last!


Apologies again for the delay. Ironically, an error slipped through in our rush to get it out the door in time.
