Friendica

Social networking

The app started as a simple image uploader providing an entry in the "Share"/"Send" menu of Android apps (e.g. the gallery app) to send photos to your Friendica account.

Now it's being extended towards a full interface for Friendica, including timeline display and the ability to view and post on you and your friends' profile walls. You need to have a Friendica account. To get one, choose a site from the Friendica directory. It's free!

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.
