@amolith I use F-Droid for 90% of my app usage. There's a small handful of non-free apps I still want.
When your phone is rooted, you can use this f-droid extension:
Fdroid is the only app store on my mobile phone.
@amolith yep, I use f-droid apps. In fact I'm using one to type this
@amolith only apps from f-droid on my phone. Oh and maybe VLC
@amolith there was a time when I had like 70% apps from fdroid. The issue was that not much of all opensource apps is there but they are on Google play store... But still, general basic is there :)
@amolith all my apps are from f-droid except for the Plex app.
@amolith I use as many apps as I can from fdroid. Only use play store for ones FOSS not on fdroid
@amolith I exclusively use fdroid
@amolith I did use F-Droid as I had android.
@amolith F-Droid for more than 90%, Aurora Store for the few remaining proprietary ones.
@amolith yes very much i get most apps from FDroid hail stallman
@amolith I use F-Droid on three devices. I still use quite a few non-free apps, but always check first when I need something.
@amolith I use fdroid
@amolith I do too :)
@amolith I run Microg and Lineage, so F-Droid is my primary app store. I have a couple of other APKs, that's it.
@amolith i use f-droid regularly! it's great c: good to install newpipe, syncthing, password store, lots of stuff
@amolith F-Droid for more than 80% of the installed apps over here 👋
@amolith f droid & yalp.
@amolith LineageOS + F-Droid
@amolith I do !
When I need something I always search in F-droid before opening the Play Store
@amolith fdroid as much as possible
@amolith I use F-Droid for a number of apps I use daily, including Mastalab, Signal, andOTP, Password Store, Lawn Chair, Open Keychain, NewPipe, KDE Connect, Open Camera, SecScanQR, Termmux... and I'm certainly missing some.
@amolith me. first look for the app i want or similar in your repo. The apps I use most are from your repo...
@amolith What's the point you wanted to prove with this? That complete nerds who'd use F-Droid would also be using Mastodon?
@amolith I have several apps from fdroid
@amolith Using FDroid, except for some apps like my 2FA bank app which isn't on FDroid
I use lineageOS with F-droid as my only package manager.
@amolith F-Droid for about 70%of my applications.
@amolith I'm using FDroid for my main apps!
@amolith I only use F-droid for a few apps. The vast majority still come from Play store, but that's something I'm hoping will change as the app selection improves.
@amolith basically just for newpipe, but yeah i use it
@amolith I first look in F-droid before considering Play store. All the apps I use that exist on F-droid are downloaded from F-droid.
@amolith yeah most of my apps are from F-droid
@amolith On my main device, there's only F-Droid (and no GApps at all). On one of my devices there's still the GApps present – but hardly ever used and most of them even disabled. Hardly ever use Playstore (but in my position as author and mod on Android.SE keep it on the one device to check things).
@amolith I use F-Droid whenever I can. (Lots of stuff on both F-Droid and Google Play.) Still have Google Play but more wary of using it now.
@amolith I use f-droid and google. But google only for what I cannot find an equivalent on F-Droid.
@amolith I do use it, but it does end up being pretty rare tbh
@amolith I have both F-Droid and Google Play on my phone (since my WearOS watch needs the Play Services and doesn't yet work with MicroG). But 90% of my apps are from F-Droid, only a few closed source ones from Google Play.
Yep, F-Droid user here
@amolith I've been using F-Droid on my (ancient) Kindle Fire HD tablet ever since (no G apps by default and the Amazon app store is a joke).
I do not use it on my phone (even though I have some (=7) FOSS apps installed via Play Store that I discovered by using F-Droid on the tablet.
HTH. Greetings to your friend.
