A proprietary analytics library was removed before building.

The app makes use of an API and you should observe the terms if you are considering making a derivative — in particular, only non-commercial use is allowed.

Status: There isn't any source for the current version so we built from the latest available. Bugs are included, especially to do with the location aspect so you might want to disable GPS while using.

Packages

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.

    Permissions
    • have full network access
      Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.
    • access approximate location (network-based) only in the foreground
      This app can get your location based on network sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi networks, but only when the app is in the foreground. These location services must be turned on and available on your phone for the app to be able to use them.
    • read phone status and identity
      Allows the app to access the phone features of the device. This permission allows the app to determine the phone number and device IDs, whether a call is active, and the remote number connected by a call.
    • view network connections
      Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.
    • send sticky broadcast
      Allows the app to send sticky broadcasts, which remain after the broadcast ends. Excessive use may make the phone slow or unstable by causing it to use too much memory.
    • pair with Bluetooth devices
      Allows the app to view the configuration of the Bluetooth on the phone, and to make and accept connections with paired devices.
    • run at startup
      Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.
