    Open source is a bit of a stretch. This software uses proprietary services that still monitor your every move. F-Droid, in comparison, does not do this. As such, it doesn't really work as a true alternative. It is nice, though, to get Play Store exclusives without handing over your data, so it is still a must-have.

    Same repository as F-Droid, but adds more information (such as author, and other apps by said author) Github/Gitlab(?) rating and release cycle/rolling stages.

    As of writing this (January 8, 2019) G-Droid is still BETA but very functional, I personally use it (along side F-Droid)
