            altstore can also be a non-apple non-altstore ios store if you live in the eu and pay them a fee, and it added that as a feature wayyy before aptoide (like you can install altstore officially without using the altstore workaround)

    Those apple suck ups will never know how good fdroid is .

    Unless of course fdroid goes ahead and starts supporting iOS which I doubt they would .

        Idk what your own about but I disagree and I’m pretty sure 99.99 people who uses/knows about fdroid would agree with me .

          I also can make up statistics.

          The concept of f droid is great. The UI and UX absolutely suck.

          However it is functional, it is free and isn’t run by a limitlessly budgeted mega corp.

              I do agree that fdroid is ugly. Droid-ify is so much more pleasing to the eye.

            The neo store also is available, can download apps from F-Droid, and it has a much better UI.

            Mate, while I’m certain that they have room for improvement I’m far from calling this as much trash as you do. What’s so wrong with it?

            I didn’t make anything up . I said I’m pretty sure 99.99 % would agree with me . Not 99.99 would agree with me .

            . The UI and UX absolutely suck.

            well I like the UI and UX a lot .

          I can’t think of any right-minded person who thinks their UI is snappy and modern. And then the terrible app exploration features. No reviews. Half the apps don’t even have pictures. No videos. Lackluster app descriptions.

          Tell me you haven’t used GPlay store and Apple AppStore in a long time without telling me.

            Bruh there are no reviews cause of privacy concerns . Photos and description is the app’s devs job to provide not fdroids . I like their UI it is solid and good . Idk what you mean by apo exploration but I find it really good even tho the search feature is not the best .

              Reviews are no privacy concern. You write this here and you’re not concerned for your privacy either.

              Their UI is utter trash.

              You clearly haven’t used other app stores recently. Else you knew what the level of expectation is these days.

                yes I have recently went to play store and it was too eye candied and tries to shove shit down your throat if that is what you like good for you I don’t like that.

                  Thinks that are wrong and bad UI design in my opinion:

                  • the green and blue don’t work at all together. Generally the coloring is quiet extravagant everywhere, especially with the message “this app has been built for an older version […]”
                  • the spacings and margins aren’t coherent everywhere. Like in the app description where the margin to the bottom is okey but to the sides it’s much smaller and almost non-existent.
                  • the grid cells don’t really stand out enough. White on White with such little shadown and spacing inbetween doesn’t work.
                  • the animations are janky and unpolished.
                  • no support for Material UI 3
                  • buttons have too little padding inside around the icon. Buttons are generally a little too small

        Yes, on Android. From my own investigations, it appears to have a really bad malware problem despite it’s claims of scanning for malware, especially for the free distributions of paid apps from the Google Play Store, which constitutes piracy and copyright infringement raising ethical issues.

    This once again shows how the EU is toothless. making laws just for a show while allowing big tech to circumvent them while waving a big fat finger to the EU’s face.
