    F-Droid vs Aurora Store opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments

    F-Droid focuses on serving free and open-source applications, most of which are either outright unavailable on the Google Play Store, or harder to find because the developers don't pay Google for advertising. This makes it an ideal complement to Aurora Store for the privacy-minded, and, like Aurora Store, no registration is necessary.
