FDroid: a free software alternative to Google Market

Finally we have an alternative to Google Market, the proprietary application that comes preinstalled in many Android phones to download and manage applications.

Now, thanks to CiaranG, everyone with an Android or Replicant phone can install a fully free software gpl client called Fdroid.

It comes preconfigured to connect to the FDroid repository that contains ONLY applications released under a free software licenses.

In the future we hope to have a system that will allow everyone to upload their favourite free software application.

Help us!
