Dear Fedizens and FOSS-lings: I need a recommendation for a file browser on Android, that's available through F-droid (either natively or own repo), which is a suitable replacement for FX File Explorer (My go to for years).
I've tried Ghost Commander, but unless there's a way to re-skin it, I don't think I can put up with the way it looks.
@IzzyOnDroid, help me out?

CalyxOS – De-Googled Android Alternative - in order to have a little more privacy. Only Pixel phones are supported for now. calyxos.org/ #linux #android #alternative #degoogle #privacy #calyxos

Just discovered and installed @flameshot , what a brilliant and easy to use tool. Definitely a productivity boost.

Amazing to see @Navy_Innovation@twitter.com showing off low-bandwidth @matrixdotorg@twitter.com decentralised comms to 1SL (Head of the @RoyalNavy@twitter.com) using Titanium: our CivTAK Matrix plugin. At this rate Matrix is on track to become the common language across the entire public sector!⚓️📻🇬🇧 twitter.com/Navy_Innovation/st

If I'm in the top 5%, a worrying number of people don't know nearly enough...

Dear #foss developers, you encounter an open source project and feel enticed to check out their community. Discord is mentioned as the only place where the discussions take place.

Your reaction?

A - Great, I already have an account anyway.
B - Ok, I'd be willing to join if the project is interesting enough.
C - Not ok, I will not be part of those discussions.
D - Other (see comment)

Boosts appreciated (research for blog post).

It's finally here, teasing is over:

I'm excited to launch #keyoxide today!

#FOSS solution for easy encryption, signature verification and decentralized identity proofs!

I've been in favor of #DeleteKeybase but I never had something to offer as an alternative. Now I do :)

@ConnyDuck Thanks a lot! No pressure of course – whenever it's ready. Glad to read you're open to it!

So everyone who's able to: Conny said Pull Requests for @unifiedpush support are welcome at #Tusky ! Anyone out there who can provide such? I'm no Android dev, so all I can do is making a #callout for help from this great community here. Would be really awesome to have free, libre push messages in our free, libre apps!

Trying out Organic Maps after reading about it in the latest release notes. It's a genuinely pretty fantastic map/navigation app and it's FOSS. Very comparable to Magic Earth.
If you find OsmAnd+ to be needlessly complicated (I sure do) then check it out.

PixelFed is the Fediverse's alternative to Instagram, with a similar interface and range of features.

Because it's part of the Fediverse, you can follow PixelFed accounts from Mastodon and vice versa.

There's more info on the official site at pixelfed.org and there's a list of instances to join at beta.joinpixelfed.org

The web interface is good, and there's an unofficial Android app PixelDroid available through F-Droid.
