Motto: Quality, not Quantity
Sorting by app name is no rating! Purchase date and own rating with 1–5 stars for each app. Where “date of purchase” means “date of installation” for free apps. I also mention in-app purchases and donations as well as separately/subsequently payments.
Under “System Requirements” I mention the operating system version for which the app is suitable.
In doing so, I also see if the offered app is only available for iOS or also for other operating systems and take this into account.
Further reviews are already in progress.
Test reports on all apps already tested are accessible via the hamburger menu at the top right.
Apps that are available for iOS and Android OS or platform-independent, I list below sorted in categories …
Smartphones owe their success to their expandability through apps. They are distributed online via sales platforms called app stores. In addition to these, there is also the developer platform GitHub for the open Android operating system, where programmers make their software available. In addition, many independent developers offer their apps for download on their own websites.
(from September 2023, apps from iOS version 17 onwards can also be obtained from other sources – my security advice also applies to this!)
Google Play (Front end & Repository for apps distributed by Google)
F-Droid (Front end & Repository for Open Source Software)
Aurora Store (Front end for all apps distributed by Google)
Aurora Droid (Front end for all apps distributed by F-Droid)
Do not download apps from unsafe sources! Be suspicious and check carefully from whom you obtain software. The sources I have mentioned below are reputable. However, pay close attention to the spelling of the Internet addresses, because websites of reputable providers are often copied and registered with similar domains. In this way, you could get malware on your device. Also read app reviews and avoid apps with few good ratings (stars).
