I also use Slide… >////> maybe one day we can have a Lemmy app on there? c: RedMoon is great, really helps with eye strain at night and early morning. I freakin’ love the NewPipe app, use it all the time too. I really like the Tusky app too. Oddly enough, it feels easier to use than the website for me. Idk why. I currently use Alarm Klock for alarms, but I’ll check out Alarmio. I use Scarlet Notes FD for notes and lists.

Tanks of Freedom is a pretty fun open source Advance Wars clone that has an Android version.

Not many people need a standalone barcode scanner these days but if you do I’ve found BinaryEye to be the best FOSS app for it: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/de.markusfisch.android.binaryeye/

For the record. Signal isn’t on F-droid and likely will never be on it. There was a fuzz around it years ago. See here for historic reasons : https://github.com/LibreSignal/LibreSignal

I posted that web link to show how Moxie Marlinspike, Signal’s main developer is hostile vs. F-Droid, and is instead promoting Google Play framework. Just for reference.

Yes. I really don’t understand why.

Btw: Is there any way for ROM users to install Signal or not at the end?

MAPS.ME is not on f-droid, however there seems to be a fork called Maps on it, that supposedly removed all trackers. But I am not sure how well maintained that is. Last change 10 months ago…
