As a futur /e/os user, i’m preparing my migration.
I’m actually using google’s calendar and contact to sync both my laptop and mobile phone.
I’ve transfered my contacts to my Synology NAS and it’s working fine.
But, i have just realised that i need davx5 in order to get sync for my calendars, and davx5 isn’t a free app.
I don’t mind paying for an app if it fit my need, but i’m not sure about the process.
I would like to get rid of google and to delete my google account after the migration process, but, if i understand correctly, i have to buy the app with that account, install /e/os, log into it with that account to be able to install davx5.
Is there any other solution without using a google account ?
Do i have to keep an existing google account just to be able to use davx5 ?
Oh, thanks for your quick answer, that’s exactly what i was looking for.
Davx5 website’s download page gives only 4 solutions :
Google Play : 4.99 euros
Amazon Appstore : 4.70 euros
Huawei App gallery : 3.99 euros
Galaxy store : 3.39 euros
BUT… due to your answer, i’ve just realised that there is more informations at the bottom of the page :
“DAVx⁵ is designed to be an open-source project ([GPL]) from the very first beginning. The source code is available, and you can download the app on F-Droid”
