Android Open Source Applications
20200412 Open source applications should be preferred over closed source applications so as to have some credibility in terms of the privacy and security credentials of the application. Below are numerous open source applications available for Android, typically best of class. For each application a link to the source code is provided as well as links to the packages available on the Google Play Store, the F-Droid repository (recommended), and the APK Mirror and APK Pure archives. For the latter two do take particular care when installing applications to guard against the installation of malware. F-Droid has well established malware protections and no reports of malware infiltration and has a strong open source foundation.
