So I wiped my tablet yesterday, because I was having issues, and I've decided to go #google-free
finally. I've used F-Droid for ages, so that's not a problem, but there are apps like internet banking that I was concerned about.
But apparently there's an app called Yalp (also, Aurora) on F-Droid, that simply scrapes the google play store apks, so I've got my banking app, yay (even though I forgot the password and totally locked myself out and now I have to get to a branch because I lack the basic ID of any normal adult human).
I am using it as an excuse to ditch Telegram, however. I have to give a big old apology to my internet bestie, V, because she's the only other person I know still using it, but she knows where to find me, so.
Instead of Telegram, I've decided, fuck it, if anyone wants to talk to me, there's #XMPP
, which totally should be more popular than it is, and I reckon could pretty much replace discord as well. I got an XMPP account with my #disroot.org
membership (which is where I have my email and Nextcloud, among other things - they also have a hubzilla instance), but if anyone's looking for somewhere to sign up I had a quick look and blah.im
look reasonably accessible.
