[LIST] Apps that work or do not work with microG

microG is a part of the /e/ROM. For users who want to continue using applications that require the Google infrastructure but do not want their data spied upon, microG is a good plan B.

That being said not all apps work well with microG. There have been a lot of queries from users regarding what works and does not work on the /e/ OS with microG enabled .
Read Gaël’s views on the subject…
In this editable list pl share names of apps that work and do not work with microG.
(Please copy format of existing lines, using | between columns to keep table format)

We hope this will be helpful for new and existing users to decide if they want to switch to /e/ OS or continue using their stock ROM.

The idea is to add names of only apps which are not standard /e/OS applications like social media apps.

The fourth column gg indicates whether you need to be logged in with a google id to use the app.

Hello.
Some apps need to link phone/microg to a gg account, to work., others can run in 'anonymous ’ mode. Country code and ‘gg’ flag would be useful. Eg.

And flag for anonymous…

Without these two essential Apps in my country I don’t have any use fore a smartphone. Tested in 2019, the reason I left /e/ and the other alternative OS’s earlier this year and stopped using mobile altogether. Possibly there were changes because now ItsMe works on Huawei too, was not the case a few months ago.

Pl update the app names in the initial post. It is editable.

Added several. For non-country-specific apps I used a ‘.’ as the country code.

How? I can’t find an edit button…

The first post in this thread is editable… Pl check the screenshot

Not for me.

Edit: Okay, now it appeared.

I’m using a Fairphone 3 so I could relock my bootloader. So I may have added apps that don’t work if you can’t relock the bootloader :confused:

Hello Manoj

I’m also not able to edit.

To be able to edit, the Trust Level 1 (Basic) is needed.

For this, here is what needs to be done :

  • Enter in at least 5 topics
  • Read at least 30 posts
  • Spend a total of 10 minutes reading posts

Thanks for the information, I thought it’s something like this.

I’m following the project since it was announced and was still called eelo, I’m using it since March on my phone and spent days worth of hours in this forum, but just as a silent reader. Now I finally created an account yesterday :slight_smile:

I saw my account was already promoted to the basic level, so thanks for that.

It might be worth putting these in a table (or add a flag) indicating which app store(s) (/e/ Apps, F-Droid, Aurora Store) the app can be found in

It looks like these forums do support markdown tables e.g.

App name Country Description Store gg
OS Maps uk access to UK Ordnance Survey maps Au n
Google Maps Mapping and navigation Au y/n
Trello client app for Trello online Kanban boards (now owned by Atlassian) Au n
OsmAnd+ maps and GPS navigation using Open Street Map Au Fd n

If people like the idea, I can work through the current list and put it in a table

Putting the information into a table makes sense to me though if all the apps are put into one table it would be good to have all the ones that do work up top and ones that don’t work at the bottom (or vice-versa) so there is clear separation.

Otherwise I just wanted to say that I thought this thread is a good idea and very helpful.

microG has a wiki table of problem apps, and some have workarounds: https://github.com/microg/android_packages_apps_GmsCore/wiki/Problem-Apps

The list of apps that work will probably become very long, which is good.

Without at least app and microG version numbers, such lists might not be very meaningful.

Good input.

As I see, it’s just apps that use the location API. Good start, but I think the goal of this list is to answer questions if specific apps work, especially banking apps.

Good idea about the app and microG versions. Should definitely be added. Probably in future also with a timestamp, to have an idea how current the information is.

@Manoj, can this become a wiki article?
@petefoth, if you’re still down for making a table, could you insert such fields?

Nice idea, but maintaining it would be a chore, there’s a lot of information to collect, collate and update. I think the information we have is a good starting point

I already did the table. It’s not very sophisticated - fairly standard markdown table - and adding fields should be easy for anyone to do. However, as mentioned above I’m not sure we should add a lot more, but that’s only my opinion :slight_smile:
The good thing about wiki posts - which the initial post is - is that anyone can make whatever changes they want :wink:
