    Too bad Signal app could not be released in F-Droid repo

      It can, and it could. Especially if reproducible builds allowing for the app developer to sign their own binaries

        True, however it is not on F-Droid. Glad there is Molly for us degoogled Android users.

          Yes because the signal leadership at the time had reservations about allowing fdoid to sign their app. That is no longer an issue. Now the only issue is their stubborn, and they’re unwilling to change their minds.

    They have a few nice features, but them being a 3rd party client also adds overhead. They update every 2 weeks from upstream (with security patches as they become available + someone being able to merge them).

    I think it being on F-Droid is a wrong “selling” point. F-Droid is great store, but they have nothing to do with security/freedom.

      F-droid has everything to do with freedom. Name one other app store that groups free software in one place

        GitHub, GitLab, Codeberg, Gitea, IzzyOnDroid and Obtainium integrates them all into one.

    If this returns/retains long term sms / mms functions i might consider it.

    What’s with the downvotes? Is it because of signal? An issue with this project in particular? Something else?
