Alternative Apps(tores): Living without Google (FP1)

ok, will do that. (sorry, didn’t see your post before…)

Same question here: I want to start using sth like instagram for photos, but apparently I can only do so from my phone (not from computer), and then I would need the guglplaystore.
It does not have to be instagram, I just need some sort of app, where I can easily upload and manage photos.
And of course without gugl interference. :sunglasses:
Any suggestions?
Thank youse!

My first guess was Owncloud (F-Droid), but there are other apps, which let you upload photos to any server: Search for “Upload Photos” on F-Droid.

Thanks for the tipps. I think though that these apps are just for online storage and not showing of photos (like instagram does).

For Evernote, there is Mirakel App in f-droid. It’s actually a task / TODO list app and can synchronize with Taskwarrior and CalDav, but should be quite nicely usable as note app as well.

Hello, does someone know of an open app that can be used to view Geospatial PDFs/TIFFs? There is an open source “Geospatial Data Abstraction Library” but I’m not sure if someone ever used it to make an application for android. So far, I had no luck finding such software.

I’ve only seen it recently as Linux program, but I’m not aware about anything similar for Android.

Really, something for viewing PDFs with geospatial metadata? Which one? Let me know! I think Chrome’s rendering engine could be able to read some of the data. I wonder why other people never looked into this. All the libs for reading/writing the info are out there.

Obviously I was wrong: Reviewing Debians’ unstable distribution searching for geospatial I found rasterio, which most likely has just come recently into the repository and is a tool for investigating geospatial rasters. Nothing like pdf there or I am remembering wrong the description of the program and it cannot be found with ‘geospatial’ (which is unlikely). So, probably I have misseen.

No problem. So far only commercial applications (on Android and iOS) and Acrobat support this feature out of the box. Too bad, it’s a nice feature to bring some GIS/GPS joy to “normal” people.

Free QGIS brings a lot of joy :slight_smile:

Yes, indeed! And being able to give people a (qgis’ed) exported PDF that is able to show them their current position on a map on their phones makes it even more easier :smile: But right now, there is not a single software I could recommend.

  • Former Liberario has just renamed itself to Transportr. The transition in F-Droid market went smoothly. The new app has got a nice, functional Material design.

I’m only here to report an issue with AdAway and FP1.
After I installed this app my FP1 couldn’t find the satellites, then I uninstalled it and FP1 has resumed to detect the satellites.
