The Apps


FDroid is easy to install and provides free applications. Note that it doesn't require root permissions and is very easy to install, even without the command line.

Apps That Still Need To Be Liberated

Please add apps here that have no free counterpart, but are important to have on a free system. People can contact the authors of those apps and ask them why they are not Free Software.

Responses to Objections We've Heard from App Developers

We already collected objections and responses on FSFE's Free Your Android Campaign. If you know more, please add them here.


Here, we collect free alternatives to resources that can be important for Android development such as free replacements for important proprietary libraries.
