@beli3ver Maybe take a look here? https://forum.f-droid.org/t/what-types-of-apps-are-you-missing-from-the-foss-ecosystem/183
A alarm clock that only turns off upon scanning a barcode (or some other thing that forces you to physically get out of bed). I used https://f-droid.org/app/org.schabi.terminightor for a while but that only supports NFC.
Bonus points if it plays nice with gadgetbridge and my new Mi Band 2 😀
@beli3ver @fdroidorg I feel like it's a shame that InterRail's rail planner app isn't available: https://www.interrail.eu/en/plan-your-trip/rail-planner-app
Given that its goal is to get more people to travel by train in the EU, I feel like it would make sense for them to open source it. And since it's mostly offline and hence doesn't need Play Services, it could be on F-Droid.
What I miss most (before leaving Google for good):
· Calendar: similar to 'Business Calendar 2'; Calendar by Simplemobiletools is nice but lacks lots of features.
· Weather radar: like 'Rainy Days' on Google Play.
· Bike Sharing: 'Veli Velo' is great; OpenBikeSharing has quite a bad UI.
· Withings scale: something like 'Libra' on Google Play.
· TV program
· Sonos controller
· Signal and Threema...
And another important one I really miss on F-Droid is 'dict.cc (plus)'!
I know about QuickDic, but it just can't compare to dict.cc (especially on the quality of translations).
Currently, there is simply no archive managers in f-droid. People, who are strict ti using f-droid can only manage zip archives, everything else (7z, tar.gz/bz2/xz, etc) can only be managed with command-line utilities in terminal emulator or termux. A 7z archiver/extractor would be greatly appreciated.
Is that Briar that good.
I think, I tried it once & uninstalled.
Whats your word that app
@noorul I didn't try briar yet, and true, I'm expecting lots of hassles. But look, they are trying to do an encrypted p2p messenger with no-internet fallback! That's incredible!
There are some useful apps in F-Droid archive which would be nice to bring back and update: INSTEAD, ScummVM, Simon Tatham's puzzles. Also I'd be happy to see some more self-contained productivity apps allowing to make or improve libre content. For example, there's Vespucci, but it's only useful for specific outside surveying. There's Stringlate, but I can't test my translations right away. Working Bugzilla client would be nice too.
@beli3ver @fdroidorg I am missing a Timetable-App: A horizontal, linear, endless and scalable timeline to visualize past and future events. Elements should be grouped and linked, and enriched with additional information, links and media. Could be useful for all kinds of chronicles and CVs or also for structured planning of projects.
One of the first Mastodon instances, there is no specific topic we're into, just enjoy your time!
