F-Droid Classic

F-Droid client with the classic UI
New in version 1.0
🎉 RELEASE 1.0 🎉

* Fix app title in all languages
This is an alternative F-Droid client which is based on the older UI of the official client (pre 1.0).
While the new client UI looks pretty, it's sometimes a bit clunky.
Lots of information that was provided clearly in the old UI is now not available or hidden behind more taps now.
F-Droid Classic brings features of the modern 1.x version of F-Droid to the classic UI, this includes:

* Index-v1 support
* Inline changelog entries
* Localized metadata

Upcoming features:

* Screenshots
* Better mirror support

It doesn't support the following features and probably never will

* Swap
* Index-v0 (old xml based index) support
* Support for Android < 4.4

Note: F-Droid Classic comes with it's own F-Droid repo reconfigured. If you only ever want to install updates from you can disable that repository in settings.



Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
