just discovering /e/ on my FP2 today and it’s amazing. Thank you folks, it’s amazing to know this device is not attached to Google!
One feedback though, it struck me how messy is the Apps repository. If I search let’s say for “Messenger”, which is an app most people would want (debate about fb aside), then I get many apps with the same icons and for anyone not very savvy it’s very easy to fall in the trap. Messenger app by Facebook is a few scroll down… And it’s similar with many very well-known app.
Is it planned to have a cleaned catalog in the future? At this point I wouldn’t let a regular user go in Apps without some warning before as it can be very deceptive.
Thanks for your answers. I understand you can’t do everything at the same time but I don’t really feel secure with this app store for the moment. As an example, I need to download an app from my bank in order to check my account on mobile… How can I be sure app is not corrupted in any way? (Please, don’t give me a solution that could only be made by a tech savyy.)
Checked a bit more info about Aurora and finally understood Thanks a lot for the info @harvey186 though it doesn’t answer why e foundation is trying to rebuild that when there’s such opportunity. Would love to understand a bit more why that. Meanwhile, I’ll stick with F-Droid and Aurora
But from what I understand, Aurora is connected directly to Google Play Store. It just allows to tap into it without having a Google account which is why we’re here, right? So Aurora cannot really go down, unless playstore goes down, am I right?
