I prefer the much nicer Aurora Droid instead of the very old looking F-Droid Store.
Aurora Droid has the same pretty and modern design as Aurora Store and the user interface looks cleaner.
In addition, there is access to many developers' own repositories and you can add further repositories and then also select them from the long list.
All apps from the selected repositories are then displayed in the app overview.
This offers much more than the old-fashioned F-Droid Store.
BTW: For all those who have not dealt with it before and therefore do not know the background:
There are three types of repositories:
- Google's App Repository, signed by Google
- F-Droid-signed apps
- Apps signed by independent developers
- Apps offered by Google not for free you can get from Google Play only
- Apps offered by Google for free you can get from Google Play or at Aurora Store
- Apps offered by F-Droid you can get from F-Droid or Aurora Droid
- Apps offered by independent developers you can get directly from these devs
- or if they have cooperation with F-Droid and therefor a link from F-Droid to there own file server, then you can get apps by using these links.
Devs with links to their own repositories on F-Droid have a note on their website with link info and how to setup it at F-Droid.
The way to setup these links into Aurora Droid is a little bit divergent.
