And also why? Some recommendations? Some app that you think that is not as famous as it should be? Etc etc

      Haven’t tried it yet myself, but I’ve heard that Organic Maps is much smoother and faster alternative to OsmAnd~.

        I find FairMail better suited for my needs, too, but both are great e-mail clients with extensible customizability. It is up to your preferences, I suppose.

            That is an interesting suggestion. I have never encountered anything wrong with FairMail, but I will look into it now, as I have not been exactly looking for it. This one seems as a nice FLOSS alternative from the looks of things. I do not like that it has not been updated in 10 months as of now, though. Still suitable to at least consider it nonetheless.

      I would love to use Lemmur, but I’ve been unable to add the lemmy.ca instance to it. It just says “Instance not found”

        You’re better off switching to Jerboa, that’s what I did. Lemmur is no longer in development.

    • Aegis Authenticator, IMO the best TOTP app out there.
    • mpv-android to play almost any kind of multimedia files.
    • Organic Maps for an OpenStreetMaps-based navigation, and doesn’t require an Internet connection to operate.
    • StreetComplete to fill missing OpenStreetMaps info you encounter, in an almost fun manner.
    • Syncthing-Fork for a Syncthing client with some good mobile-specific tweaks.
    • Termux to emulate and run a bunch of console-based softwares (like youtube-dl, etc).
    • AirGuard to detect if you’re being tracked by an Apple AirTag without your knowledge.

      Syncthing-fork is so useful, the once an hour sync for battery was a great thing to add.

          Okay, I will give Organic Maps a try (I currently use OsmAnd+ and I like it but sometimes it becomes unstable and slow). Ty for the info :)

        Basically the same concept, I prefer the UI/UX of Organic Maps.

      I agree that Aegis is one of the bests apps that I seen for TOTP. But for the moment I also have my TOTP on KeePass since I can sync them between my pc and phone. I didn’t try organic maps but I will give it an eye. I use OsmAnd. I also have street complete for improving maps. And about Syncthing fork, what’s are de differences between the fork and the vanila one? I’m interested

        The fork adds the ability to schedule sync more granularly, ie: only runs for 5 minutes every hours, the ability to set different sync conditions per share (ie: one folder syncs at all time on any network, another folder only when charging and on wifi, etc), etc.

      Trying to figure out lemmy still, I’m not sure why my post shows up twice on my phone. Deleting deleted both.

        That happens to me (on lemmur) every now and again. I have learned to be patient and refresh the page. The duplication resolves itself without any input from me. I am almost certain that it is a local duplicate only, so no one else sees it (which is why deleting deletes both).

    Apps are neat, but from a minimalistic view all you need is a powerful browser and the factory apps (phone, notes, calculator, calendar, clock, contacts). The latter you can substitute with better ones like Simple Notes or Simple Clock. For more demanding stuff you’d want to use a proper computer anyway, from my experience a phone is mainly a communication & browsing device.

      Interesting point of view, I can agree that when possible I prefer to use my computer for heavy/tedious tasks.

    MuPDF viewer is a simple pdf/cbz viewer. One nice thing about it is how easy it is to open multiple documents at the same time. If you use your tablet for document review, this is a nice feature. The big downside is that the built-in file browser can’t access SD cards.

    Ghost Commander is a dual-panel file manager that is useful if you move files around on your device fairly often. It supports SD cards, although write access can vary depending on Android version.

    Termux is useful if you’re used to command-line tools. It supports bash, zsh, etc and the built-in package manager is good. I have successfully used ssh-related commands, vim, emacs, lynx, elinks, newsboat, cmus, mc, ncdu, and other programs from the desktop world on my android devices. Very useful, especially with Hacker’s Keyboard, which makes it easy to enter CTL, ALT and F1-F12 keystrokes on an Android Device.

    Librera Reader is a very nice option for ebooks, comics and PDFs. It has read support for SD cards and works well with built-in text-to-speech if you like to have a robot voice read your books aloud to you while while you drive or work out. It reminds me a lot of Moon+ Reader, but it’s available on F-Droid.

    Flym is a decent rss reader - I’ve been using it for a few years without incident.

    VLC and Kodi are available through F-Droid if you’ve got a media collection on your device. Additionally, VLC can stream network-shared media if you’re on your home network and want to watch something that isn’t stored on your device. Also it can cast content if you have a chromecast on one of your TVs.

    For gaming, you could download Dosbox or Scummvm (or add the Retroarch repository) if you have some old DOS games or you’ve downloaded some ScummVm-type adventure games from GOG and you want to play them on the go. The interface is a bit clunky but you can share the save files with your other devices using Syncthing.

    Here’s a slightly more niche gaming recommendation - I’ve been enjoying OMW a lot lately. It’s one of several Android-focused ports of OpenMW that is available on F-Droid. With a bit of help from syncthing, you can play TES Morrowind on your PC and then pick up from the same spot later on your phone or tablet. The controls take a bit of getting used to, but it can be done! Who needs Skyrim when there’s an older, better alternative?
