I love free software, but my wallet keeps my with a cheap Google phone…so, I watch what I do here, but don’t worry about “software freedom”…there is a Lemur app in Google Play, and when I sign on, it just spins and spins and…you get it.
So, I jumped through the hoops to allow F Droid on my phone…and here I am all signed in! 😊

If your post is
it’s welcome here!
The playstore version might be outdated, I just updated my fdroid version and the infinite spinning while trying to login was fixed.
Exactly the same here
what instance were you trying to sign into? because i just tried it with lemmy.ml and it works. also could you also say the version of the app? (you can find it in settings->about lemmur) in general there’s some stuff in the app that might not work because we haven’t updated the app to work with the latest changes to the api yet. but basic stuff works, that’s something that i’m sure of
edit: also wanted to note that this is not an official app, we are independently working on it as a hobby. the official android app is being worked on but idk how far are they with the project
The Lemur app I had from play store was updated on Jan 14 2022 and in the play store that is the last one listed.
Anyhow, I’m happily using Lemur as we speak, just downloaded from F Droid instead…and again, thank you for your work. I really like this app!
I understand it’s not official…and thank you for putting work into this! like I said, it works from Droid, but not Google Play(I prefer Droid anyhow). I uninstalled…but let me check the play store and get the version number for you.
oh, okay. i think i understand the situation now. the version on the play store is a bit older because something broke with the release pipeline :/ i will fix it but im a bit busy atm so we’ll see when ill be able to do it
but the bottom line is: sorry about it not working, we’ll be working on it, for now just use the F-Droid version
I prefer to use Droid anyhow…even though I’m still using a vanilla Google phone. Sigh
The official app for Lemmy is known as “Jerboa for Lemmy” in the Play Store. It works pretty well.
I dont think it should be considered as “official app”, its just one of many that you can choose from.
Jerobo from the play store for me. I got a “new” cheap Google phone after my old cheapy (Obama phone) stopped turning on!
Anyhow, I didn’t try jeroba in Droid but, Lemur in Droid works… as you can see !
