Inquiry:
Has anyone tried out the c0nnect #XMPP app for #Android ?

If so, what're your thoughts on it?

Also, it says it's open source, however I cannot find a bloody link to their source code anywhere on their site

If someone manages to find it, please share!

When #GooglePlay introduced privacy labels, I was very curious to see how they managed to get reliable data about the #privacy properties of Android apps. I know first-hand how difficult and time-consuming privacy audits of #Android apps can be. Now Mozilla has taken a closer look, and it seems #Google doesn't even have reliable data.

Tip: save yourself from having to tap out your long email address on your phone. Set up a 2 or 3 letter keyboard shortcut.

1. Go to Settings
2. Search "autofill"
3. Select Personal dictionary
4. Add a new word, put your email address and a 2 or 3 letter code you want to use as the keyboard shortcut.

Just like its #iOS version, this #Android authenticator app sends scanned QR codes to a remote server. It has been downloaded 500K+ times. It's among the top 5 hits when you search for #2FA apps on @GooglePlay.
Spread the word and warn your friends✌️

I was surprised at my phone ringing last night, until I realised I got a real non-test push notification from the experimental fork of Nextcloud made by Niklas Reimer. It uses @unifiedpush in the #foss and @fdroidorg compatible version of Nextcloud, and notifications don't go through Google Services or the Nextcloud Push gateway.

Something very exciting is coming!

While we are at it did you all know there is an #MP3DirectCut for #Android that is accessible too?
https://mpesch3.de/mp3directcut-android.html
For cutting MP3 and AAC files I prefer MP3DirectCut as it also supports losless volume normalization and fading.
#LoslessCut uses #ffmpeg under the hood and I like to use it for other file types, for generating chapters, working with cue files, concatenating tracks, syncing audio in video files and similar.

For those of you using adbsync (https://codeberg.org/izzy/adbsync): I've just published v0.1.2 with some minor feature enhancements. Most important: when syncing media files, adbsync can now trigger Android's media scanner so your album browser, media player etc. immediately notice the changed/new/removed files.

Enjoy :awesome:

I've yet to see a #Mastodon client for either #iOS or #Windows that has an in-house profile editor. I can't speak for #Android because I don't have a working device.


@IzzyOnDroid I didn't. With #FOSS being FOSS I didn't expect anyone to oppose. So @GrapheneOS do you approve or do you have reasonable objections against adding your camera #Android app to #FDroid?

Meine Analyse des Custom-ROMs #CalyxOS scheint bei einigen Entwicklern einiges in Bewegung zu setzen. Nun verkündet #GrapheneOS ihren eigenen SUPL TLS-Reverse-Proxy zu hosten: supl.grapheneos.org

"We'll be replacing our force disable toggle for SUPL with a choice between GrapheneOS, Standard (carrier/fallback) and Disabled."

Das ist natürlich das Optimum!

#android #security #supl #google


Das #Android Custom-ROM #CalyxOS wirbt mit Privatsphäre und Sicherheit. Die Analyse des Datensendeverhaltens zeigt: CalyxOS ist leider nicht so de-googled, wie man vermuten würde. 👇
