    As for “supporting the dev” I don’t really get this concept.

    It can be both.

    • You love the app, you don’t want it discontinued; you pay to continue the developement.
    • The developers have a solid business model without any shady practices and have such an awesome free version that you don’t feel the need to pay to upgrade to premium features; then you may pay just to just your gratitude. Niagara Launcher & MixPlorer are similar examples of ad-free FREE versions.

    If you are looking for native Lemmy apps for Windows, I don’t know if they exist.

    But here is an awesome updated list of webapps available for Lemmy: The Great Big List of Lemmy Apps

    You can create a shortcut for them on your desktop. These are fast and minimal and have different styles. There is one webapp in there that is very similar to the old[dot]reddit site.

    how did I not know about this??

    The first thing I do whenever I install anything is to go through the settings. To turn off trackers, analytics and explore the accessibility features.

    Virustotal.com

    I have a PWA (Web App) created for this website on my home screen. I always check downloaded APKs by uploading them here.

    It’s smart. It does not always require you to upload the apk. 99% of the time, the APKs from Mobilism are already uploaded and scanned there by other users. In that case, the website simply checked the file hash, skips the upload and shows the scan results.

    As for the scan results themselves, I’m not an expert. Maybe others on this thread can help you there.

    The reason for Android's Notification system being better than iOS, is solely due to the ability to turn off individual aspects of an application's notifications.

    Google, the poor multi-billion dollar scrappy startup that maintains Android, made a payment app that has one notification setting, "Google Pay". So all the ads, promotions, everything.

    3rd party apps like PhonePe & Paytm have a better system.

    How do you manage to maintain this OS?

    For me it’s their constant Credit Card upsell notifications.

    Amazon is another poor startup that does that on their Android app.

    The Moto X (2014)/(2nd gen) was such an awesome phone with a solid build.

    I bought it in 2015 at a huge discount instead of the One Plus 1. I used it till the end of 2019 until the battery gave in & the USB port became useless.

    Except for the smaller battery size & ok-ish camera, everyone had praises for that phone. My favourite part was it’s shape & software.

    It received the Android 5 & 6 updates even before summer Nexus phones. And the updates were stable. Times were wild back then.

    they use an internal browser as if they do this they can add their own trackers and don’t worry about adblockers

    This one simple trick. I hate it. The LinkedIn app does this too.

    Has Google not fixed this yet? I’m in A10 and use Niagara launcher as my default with Navigation Buttons.

    I know. I’m asking about the same thing. The bug when opening the recent apps when using gestures with custom launchers.

    SamsungUS joining in.

    I guess the iPhone sales numbers in the US are keeping them awake. I personally think Apple will only bend if they are forced somehow by the US government, like the way EU did with type-C.

    OffTopic: Why is it called A/B testing? I’ve mentioned a few times in the Revanced communities.

    From my limited understanding of web trackers, tracking companies like Facebook & Google and other 3rd party trackers like to identify unique users on the internet so that they can be served targeted ads suited to that unique user’s traits. They do this by creating unique ‘Fingerprints’ for these users by taking note of their browser characteristics like Timezone, Screen resolution, Fonts, Language preferences, etc.

    This setting simply resets this fingerprint daily so that these tracking companies are not able to track you on the basis of your browser attributes. if you turn this on it will increase your privacy but will break some websites.

    Swift Selection Search is an extension that adds search engine buttons on selected text.

    I don’t think this is exactly what you are looking for, but I guess it has a similar use. I just discovered it last week.

    Can someone Eli5 what’s this about? My guess is this is about windows game emulation on Android.
