Sync issues with f-droid official repo
Does any of you experienced issues with repo sync today? [UPDATE] Alarm returned. Now works as well as before. Probably did maintenance.

Sharing location with friends
What app do you use or recommend for sharing you location with family and friends? Google Maps can do this, but I'm looking for a non-Google option. Something in the OpenStreetMaps space would be the best. Telegram can also do it, but Telegram's feature is more optimized for short-term sharing, not continuous sharing.

What open source camera app do you use/recommend?
I am using OpenCamera, but would welcome suggestions: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/net.sourceforge.opencamera/

I was missing auto export of contacts in cvs file in many FOSS contact manager apps. I came across this app, using it with syncthing is working like charm. Previously, I was using https://www.f-droid.org/packages/org.decsync.cc/ issue was that I could not restore backups.

any FOSS equivalent to trucaller?
Moreover, is there something similar for SMS messages? I'd like to block both, phone calls and SMS messages, when the phone numbers try to impersonate those from real phone number owners. In my country it's common to get phone calls, and SMS messages, from phone numbers corresponding to real organizations, such as banks and government agencies (particularly those associated to taxes, legal, and so on). So I´d like something that indicates me the impersonating phone number is no the real one, for both phone calls and SMSs, so I can block those, and also I can block some coming from real orgs I'm not interested in answering, like banks offering vredit cads or health insurance, or things like that. But I'm looking for something hopefully not sharing information from me, not even statistics. So not sure there's one app or 2 apps on Android, which are FOSS, and hpefully under F-DROID, or with custom F_DROID repos, which is what I prefer... Thanks !

Lagrange browser pre-release for Gemini protocol
Highly suggest looking at this if you are interested in using Gemini (protocol) on Android. Very polished, seemingly feature complete. With Ariane gone, might be your best bet - Deedum is good but this has it beat.

This might be obscure, but I liked playing cribbage on my phone before I started using fdroid. Is there an ad-free version somewhere?

Is there some app that allows me to convert markdown to PDF on the go?
Hi. I use Joplin and quillnote to make notes on the go. But many times I need then as PDF. On the computer there in no problem but none of these allow me to export as PDF on my phone. Is there some app that allows me to do this?

Is Telegram FOSS legit?
I feel like someone tooling with a secure messaging app makes it less...reliable that its secure, despite yanking google play parts out of the code. Thoughts?

Which are your most useful apps?
And also why? Some recommendations? Some app that you think that is not as famous as it should be? Etc etc

What launcher you recommend the most on fdroid?
Hi. Im very happy right now with smart launcher. But I would like something fully open source. I want something minimal, but that allows me to have desktop pictures, because I make my own wallpapers. Also it would be good to create folders or apo categories. Thank you.

Molly on official repos?
Hi ! It's been a while since I don't use the Signal app, and instead I use Molly from the Mully-FOSS custom f-droid repo: https://molly.im/fdroid https://molly.im/fdroid/foss/fdroid/repo So I can use molly without binary blobs... However I was wondering if there were any efforts to include molly into the f-droid official repos... I understand the motto of having custom repos, but the more custom repos added, the slower the repos updates... And molly doesn't get updated everyday either, :) Thanks !
