at @fdroidorg – I've already skipped 2 runs, index update frequency is quite amazing these days. The last 2 runs had "only" updates, the current one has 33 updates again, but also 1 new app:

* LifeHQ

No idea what that is (I had insisted on a proper app description before approving). Seems to be some "journaling" app.

Important update:

* Fedilab: the new version shall support @unifiedpush 🥳

I hope more apps will include that soon!

Hey @Google @GooglePlayDev,

It has been well over 2 weeks (September 27th) since you suspended F-Droid Nearby for "impersonation".

We have provided proof that we are F-Droid and want our app reinstated that same day.

The "up to 7 days" review time has long passed.

Please reinstate our app. Thanks.

There are lots of Fediverse apps on @fdroidorg, the free open alternative to Google Play. Some Fediverse apps are exclusive to F-Droid!

Unlike Google Play, F-Droid apps are all free, open source and privacy-friendly.

F-Droid can be installed on any Android phone. It's slightly tricky to install because Google tries to block any alternative app stores. However, once it's been installed it is just as easy to use as Google Play.

There are some simple step-by-step F-Droid installation instructions here:
