I use F-Droid in place of the proprietary Google Play Store or services, and it's served me well for years now. If you're looking to move away from Google and its data-munching services to something more open, private and secure, F-Droid is a must.

It's free. But I miss "similar apps" functionality. Perhaps a collaboration with AlternativeTo would Help? :-)

It's getting better every month. The repository is growing and many good FOSS apps can be found. I always first search here and only if I can really not find what I'm looking for I will go to Googles PlayStore. Watch out when the Apps where last updated before you install them.

Impressive app-store, fully FLOSS (free, libre, open source software), perfectly shaped, very reliable.

Nice post. Actually F-Droid is a community-maintained software repository for Android, similar to the Google Play store. The main repository, hosted by the project, contains only free libre software apps. Applications can be browsed and installed from the F-Droid website or client app without the need to register for an account. F-Droid is a non-profit volunteer project. Although every effort is made to ensure that everything in the repository is safe to install, you use it AT YOUR OWN RISK. Wherever possible, applications in the repository are built from source, and that source code is checked for potential security or privacy issues.

in my opinion the best app store there is, and the only one i'm using. great for any android user but specially important for people avoiding Google Play Services and the Google Services Framework
a pillar of free software!

Firstly, apps are light weighted,straight forward with no ads bugging.
Secondly, most are not available in google play which are bulky with too much permissions and money oriented.
Hope F-Droid will put up more of its apps in future.
