I do agree with the kids but this depend on so much things. So please do not judge because of one example of an app that I posted here. My kids are allowed to play (with me next to them) for 10 minutes per day. That’s why I miss the possibility to stop the screen after 10 minutes on android (parental control) I know there are tools for that. It’s an other topic.
I do sync to my own server on nextcloud installed in docker on my synology.
I would like to sync more than just documents between my phone and server like for example, my music folder sitting on my nas somewhere (not connected to nextcloud). This is just an example.
There are a lot of apps that are great and I think it is absolutely fair to pay for it. Nothing absolutely nothing is for free. So I just want to know how I could have an app on my e system that I’m willing to pay. I don’t want to pay with my privacy.
I believe that some apps downloadeable on google playstore are harmless. But I imagine I’m totally wrong.
So you mean to make a webdav connection between my nextcloud and my nas folder. Music for example.
And then with the nextcloyd app syncing to the phone.
How does the nativ music app connect to the music folder?
I agree it’s sad that there is no way to buy an app outside of Google ecosystem.
Maybe it could be a way here for e foundation to earn some money and support its development ? I love foss and f-droid, but I think a complete ecosystem should include paid apps to support developers and foss.
I do agree it is sad that we cannot gain access to paid app when using e.
There are also difficulties beyond the store itself unfortunately : as I really wanted to use one specific app, I bought it using the play store (the amazon store would have been the only alternative) but it still did not work as the app actually uses some Google (play) library to check for the license.
I contacted the developer who was willing to help, but saw no easy solution tothe problem.
I guess mass adoption of systems like /e/ is the only way out…
I use Raccoon as Pro version.
It is suitable for Windows, MacOS and Linux.
I use it on Windows 8.1 as Java-Applet with actual Oracle Java Runtime enabled.
You can of course run it with Linux too, without any problems.
Note that I can’t buy any app. on plaie-store (plaie = wound, french joke) using MicroG because I’d never bought from P.S. before. So gg doesn’t want to “certified” my pay card, even if I use it for an other gg-sevices (sevice = abuse).
