Not really sure why this is required. Aurora also does not have this and neither did Neo Store. The app notifies the user pretty well that it has to trigger download. This is at this point the only required interaction. Still would wait until it is out of beta.
Hm, we’ll think about the other things, but I’ll point out that we don’t make recommendations based on what we hope the app will eventually look like. Otherwise we would recommend, for example, Accrescent, which we currently do not do.
Another thing is that I just checked all of the recommended RSS feeds in Privacy Guides, and only Feeder is an app that can be downloaded on Android, and you can only get it from the Google Play Store or Aurora Store, which is not ideal if you don’t already have Google Play Store or Aurora Store or if you don’t want to use them at all. Meanwhile, Obtainium updates itself.
I approve this post. More awareness of obtainium = more chances to get an official release faster from more potential contributors.
You can use F-Droid tho. Though maybe not recommended by PG.
You can still use obtainium even though it is not in the recommended tools! That comment feels like you are trying to say obtainium is broken…it’s not! Nobody and nothing will prevent you from using obtainium. unlike f-droid… which is officially non-recommended in privacyguides due to security issues.
you should 110% give obtainium a go! it works exactly like f-droid (and neo store), but 1000x safer!! 99% of the apps in the f-droid repo are obtainable and updatable with obtainium… theres exceptions like osmand~ which can only be obainted from the f-droid repo. the basic version of osmand can be obtained without f-droid though…
I think the major problem with the f-droid repo is the method in which they sign the apps… It’s not the developpers themselves that signs them… while obtainium fetches apps directly from the dev’s source!
i think its unbelieveable how nobody thought about obtainium earlier!!
