I’ve talked before about my new phone setup, which now doesn’t contain no Google apps or services at all. I’ve been using a custom ROM for my phone but I could do the same just by disabling all Google services and apps.
My device has better battery life and I’m using only essential apps. This is a major step towards full degooglification and helps with mindful use of the phone, something I’m trying for some years now.
Here is the list of basic apps I use
|1.||F-droid||The open source store|
|2.||Bitwarden||Password manager from F-droid repo*|
|5.||DAVx5||Contacts and calendar sync|
|7.||Notes||Notes for Nextcloud|
|9.||MuPDF viewer||PDF viewer|
|10.||Etar calendar||Calendar app|
|11.||Nextcloud news||RSS reader|
|12.||Fennec Browser||The F-droid Firefox version|
|14.||Librera PRO||Ebook reader|
|16.||Viber (Apkmirror)||Proprietary communication app|
|17.||OsmAnd~||Maps & navigation|
For apps that cannot be found on F-droid I use apkmirror.com Fortunately until now, that goes only for the Viber app which is not open source.
