@polyplacophora @farlopito @fdroidorg Hi! Thank you for supporting us with a paid account. It means a lot. The process of publishing our app on F-droid has already started. We need to make a few steps before doing this. In the next couple of months it should be done. Your patience is greatly appreciated.
Today the 100th app got elevated from my repo to the official @fdroidorg repository. I cannot tell which was number 100 – at F-Droid, there were 31 new apps since yesterday 😍 – so congrats to all of the developers who got their apps ready for us! 👍 💪

@Ayior actually Android phones give users way more freedom to customize than most others. eg. Fairphone2 comes with a lot of OS choises:
* official Android (default OS)
* #FaiphoneOpen (Vendor supported Android without Google Apps)
* #LineageOS (Community supported Android without Google Apps)
* @Ubports (Community supported Ubuntu Mobile)
* #SailfishOS (another Community Supported Linux based mobile OS)
* #PostMarketOS (Linux Distro for reviving old phones)
If you enjoy using switching.social and would like to support the site, please consider buying "The Switching Social Handbook":
It's short, but it's designed mainly to complement the website rather than duplicate it. It discusses the challenges to privacy and looks at the alternatives on offer.
It's a DRM-free ePub file, which should work on most major eBook readers.
(Let me know about any problems or feedback!)
Android / RF noise tip: if you want to measure how bad your USB power transformer is, you can use the Tuner application from @fdroidorg ! https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.billthefarmer.tuner/
Of course, if you actually want to tune your instrument, you should first unplug your phone from its power plug, otherwise you'll be stuck at 50 Hz :D
Turns out if there's absolutely no time pressure at all we can publish a new #NewPipe release in a day! 😅🎉
So, yes #NewPipe is finally built, waiting for the next index update. What a week... 😅
