Fossdroid: Easily discover free and open source Android software

In my opinion the best way to get free and open source Android software is through the F-Droid application repository. However, while not horrible by any means F-Droid’s website isn’t always the easiest thing to browse through when you are looking to discover software to use.

Fossdroid, a new project created by created by Daniele Simonin, aims to alleviate this issue by interfacing with F-Droid and displaying the available software in a clean and user-friendly layout. Fossdroid also includes a very useful software popularity list in each category as well.

I highly recommend checking it out if you prefer using FLOSS applications on your Android devices.
