    Yeah I always look for apps on fdroid first if I need something. It doesn’t have everything but a lot of the time there are great FOSS apps available.

    I also love that you can filter apps for different criteria such as privacy, close source dependencies etc.

    It’s a great project. Reminds me I should tip them some for their great work.

      Me too, and if it’s not there then I recently discovered Aurora Store which let’s you download from Google Play anonymously and is itself available on F-Droid.

      Nice try, Philip J. Fry!

        How’s the Aurora Store working right now? Last time I used it, anonymous accounts started getting rate-limited pretty severly, rendering it quite painful to use

          The latest versions of Aurora store have a setting to automatically search in the browser which evades the playstore-side rate limiting. It’s a little annoying, but that’s on playstore, not aurora.

            Good to hear. I decided to become completely independant from the Play Store when that happened and actually managed to do it, but that’s obviously not an option for everyone.

        Made me exhale audibly through my nostrils.
