[Feature request] Apps: sourcing information for each app

Maybe this is clueless, but …
can we have the information about the source of all the apks getting into the App app :slight_smile:? Like, did you get it from F-Droid, or Google Play Store, etc …

I mean, how to trust that the application on your store is what it claims to be? I already wrote here about the two Tor Browsers of which one is an obvious scam and another maybe, just maybe the official app.

There have been several threads about this issue here on the forum some time ago like Where do Apps Come From? or /e/ app store: updates and sources.

Also check this: https://doc.e.foundation/faq#where-do-the-apps-in-e-installer-application-come-from
I am not aware of a way to tell where the sources of each package in the /e/-App atore come from.


Well, that’s a major issue. F-droid is at least curated. So, I think I’ll go full F-droid for the time being.

This problem is also addressed in the Bug-tracker: https://gitlab.e.foundation/e/backlog/-/issues/1395
