I’m hoping to migrate from standard Android to /e/ or possibly LineageOS. If I understand correctly, apps with in-app purchases tend not to work on /e/. Does that mean, for example, my bank’s app or an airline’s app probably would not work? That, unfortunately, would be a deal-breaker.
On my existing Android phone I’ve installed the Aurora app store and see my bank’s app and a major airline’s app.
Those Apps most probably are dependent on underlying Google services (Aurora Store would list them as GSF-dependent in this case) which /e/OS doesn’t have and tries to mimic with the integrated microG. Such Apps might work on /e/OS at some point in time, they might not work on /e/OS at some other point in time.
If you have the apk backup from your paid apps you can install them on /e/ this is what I did with all my paid apps and they work good …
Including all my bank account apps which work very well including Paypal or Btc and many other… (some say paypal do not work but for me thats work good… sometimes I have to retry to log in my MC BNC apps but that’s work very well )
For an android user the only serious problem can be the speech recognition/diction but is it secondary… except this there is nothing less than Android do
Do these apps get updated if you install this way? (Just asking from curiosity - one of the bank apps I use works OK, and I use internet banking in my web browser for the bank whose app won’t run in /e/OS)
