I only use bandcamp for listen recent release music. The best thing to do is to buy directly music (CD, digital on artist website).
I hope /e/ will integrate a music stream server open source.
From what I read the 2 trackers from Apple music are bad yes …
There are use on almost every apps …
“Perform analytics on app users and utilizes social media advertising. Get insight your users, what they’re doing, and inject social content to delight them”
It’s not only use for crash analytics, it can get a lot of data from your phone.
Firebase is use to monitor app usage and generate stats.
I’m not an expert, I only read what Yalp and official website posted.
Please if someone use thoses analytics app, I would like to know more
Yes, I have a 16GB internal sd and circa 100GB of FLAC files. It’s fine with my current phone but whenever it needs replacing it might be impossible to just stick the sd card in the new phone and I might not be able to afford one with sufficient internal storage. Music from compressed files is not an option.
for me it’s a meaningful option.
I think the music can be compressed. I don’t know if there is (I don’t think) a smartphone-headphone system that has a high fidelity audio quality (like a home system) so a FLAC “sounds” better than an excellent MP3 (>160, 192 kbit/s) or Ogg vorbis (i think the best FOSS) or AAC (and maybe using the Joint Stereo to save more space). It’s a compromise between quality and portability.
and above all, it’s a viable option if space isn’t infinite. In reality everything is an option/compromise, it is always a matter of optimizing.
Yes, I did little research. Blokada dues not need root. In my case I prefer more AdAway because I don’t need per app setting and I don’t like another application to run in the background and waste resources.
Blokada uses VPN settings which is why it does not require root. The downside is that you can’t use it and connect to a real VPN simultaneously. For this reason (and because I’m more comfortable having a rooted phone anyway) I use Adaway. Both work well however, so you pay or money (or not ) and you take your choice.
