    • G-Droid is a client application to browse the F-Droid repository. It has a slighly different approach of UI design to the F-Droid client.

      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)

      Really modern and beautiful interface. It also comes with a setup, where you can setup additional repos that you'd normally have to search for. It really is the best alternative F-Droid client.
