Survival Manual (Learn how to survive) - https://f-droid.org/app/org.ligi.survivalmanual

Survival Manual based on the Army Field Manual 21-76 - fully working offline. It contains info on how to make fire, build a shelter, find food, heal and other useful content in a case of emergency.

But it does not have to be used in emergency situations only - it can be also useful for trips to the outdoors, hiking, camping, learning about nature and yourself truly. This is not only fun, but you can also train skills (make fire, build shelter, ..) you might need in a catastrophy. Some things work best with practice in a relaxed environment - then you also have time for some experiments.

P.S.: better to be readed when You have battery and phone :D

@Fairphone You don't need googleplay services, for example, to search apps, we have #fdroid already. Even if you want google's apps in lineage (android) you can install them through apps that let you bypass register to googleapps...
 

Wanna break free from #Google?


Here are some recommendations:
What did I missed? What is you favourite alternative? and why?

Oh well! The free version of #Fedilab has been removed by Google.

I know people started to report it. But... Why the reason is for "payments policy violation"? I appealed for that but I will not re-upload anything for this version.

Don't forget to get it with #Fdroid: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/fr.gouv.etalab.mastodon/

or the version built from sources. Follow @mastalab for links to apk.

Strangely, the paid version is not *currently* affected.

Two new ways to get apps nearby, without internet

There are many reasons why it is often better to do things without the

internet:your data plan is expensive, there is limited coverage in the
area, there is an internet outage or shutdown, or even something is
private and should not be online at all. Or even, if you are setting
up a new device, you can easily send all your existing apps over to
the new device. This is why F-Droid has included the “Nearby Tab” for
swapping apps and files without internet. F-Droid v1.7 includes a
major overhaul of the existing functionality, so it should work a lot
better now, especially when using Wi-Fi. Two new “nearby” methods
were added on top of that, to provide effective ways of exchanging
apps between devices.

The first is “hotspot” mode, where one device is acting as a Wi-Fi
Access Point. Android does not make it easy to do, since apps cannot
always known what the state of the Wi-Fi is. Thanks to the
accesspoint library from
long time F-Droid contributor @mvdan, it can do a lot more.

The second is using SD Cards and USB On-The-Go (OTG) flash drives as a
source of F-Droid repos. Flash drives can provide a very high
bandwidth method for transferring files, when they are easy to move
from device to device. Our goal is to make the whole user experience
as smooth as possible, so people can regularly move data with these
affordable, widespread data buckets. USB-OTG and SD Cards can host
standalone repos as well as mirrors of existing repos. Those repos
need to be copied to the flash drive first, like from a laptop. That
can be done using fdroid mirror , for example:

$ cd /media/user/F-DROIDORG
$ fdroid mirror https://guardianproject.info/fdroid
$ wget https://guardianproject.info/fdroid/repo/index-v1.jar
$ mv index-v1.jar fdroid/repo/

USB OTG support is new and alpha. It works, but needs a lot of polish
on the user experience. For example, it should show the scanning
progress. Also, Bluetooth is still flaky on many devices, some of that
comes from the devices poor support for generic data service over
Bluetooth.

"Another good thing: it does all these things without stealing your data to analyze it or do any kind of tracking. #deletegoogle 😍"

You don’t have to use Google Play for apps on your Android phone.

There’s a free open alternative app store called F-Droid, which is much more privacy-friendly, and which you can install yourself relatively easily.

There’s a simple instruction guide for beginners on switching.social:

There’s a much more detailed guide by @IzzyOnDroid here:
