A good reason not to target the #android #api level 31 or higher unless you really have to:
https://developer.android.com/topic/performance/app-hibernation

Your app runs at risk to be put into hibernation by the system, as always depending on only vaguely explained criteria.

Open Source should not be restricted to a walled garden. When you appraise your app as being "open source", always consider making it available openly as well – and not just "available at Google Play".

Good options include of course #FDroid or, should your app not fully comply there, the #IzzySoftRepo – but the least you can do is tagging your releases and attach a signed release APK 😉

Oh, and of course make sure to declare a #foss license for it 😄

So I don't know just how widespread this issue is, but I read on a mailing list that in the new iOS 16.3, there's a Braille bug where if you open the notification center, with Space with dots 4-6, your Braille display disconnects from the phone. I can't tell you how insulting this bug is. Opening the notification center is something a person does on their phone tons of times per day. Any kind of quality control could have caught this bug. And yet, here we are. And it makes me so glad that, whether Google has a blind person sitting there testing every build or not, that TalkBack's new Braille support is pretty damn solid. No, it doesn't have the turn pages while panning, or automatic panning, or showing equations in Nemeth code, or even Grade 2 US/UK Braille, although it does have Unified Grade 1 and 2 Braille. But shoot at least it doesn't have iOS-level slap-in-the-face bugs.

I think I just found the AppleVis of #Android so check it out here! This is the communications category of the website https://accessidroid.com/category/apps/communication/


Have you heard about #ReproducibleBuilds? This is one of the biggest #security benefits of #FOSS. On #Android, this technique ensures that the #FDroid version of an app exactly matches the developer's version.

Read our article below for more details and to see how easy it is for developers to get set up:

Okay am I just going crazy, or has MacOS gotten a little better over the past like 3 months? Like I’ve been using it for just about everything besides heavy web browsing, and it's been pretty good. Makes me almost want to get back into the Apple ecosystem, whenever iOS’ bugs upon bugs are a bit more exterminated. Shoot maybe I’m just crazy. But Windows just, ugh the way when a lot of notifications come in, focus is just stolen out from wherever you were and put into a blank space, like that infuriates me. Oh and the Mac Mail app being a lot nicer than Gmail’s web app. Like it's totally first-world problems, and I could live on Windows, but my goodness it gets on my nerves a lot. Lol meanwhile Android gets even more smooth with every TalkBack update. Tech companies’ attention to accessibility waxes and wanes, I guess. All this was typed on the new, more quick, TalkBack Braille Keyboard. Although I still can't type smiley faces though.

SUPL-Server nutzen Android-Systeme, um die GPS-Positionsbestimmung zu beschleunigen. Stellt sich heraus, dass die Domain "supl.vodafone.com" nur ein CNAME für "supl.google.com" ist. 🤦

Man meint also, man würde einen etwas datenschutzfreundlicheren SUPL-Server nutzen, aber am anderen Ende hockt dann wieder Google. 😑

Now the first "public beta" of my little "adbsync" script is tagged and available at

https://codeberg.org/izzy/adbsync/releases

Should be stable enough to be released to the public (though its code was public from the very beginning). adbsync lets you sync directories between your #Android device(s) and your (#Linux) PC without any special app, just utilizing things like rsync, adb, adbfs – and jq (to parse the JSON config file).

Give it a try, feedback welcome :awesome:
