Open Source Productivity Apps for Android

Final Word

Plenty of other open source apps are out there that can become useful additions to your productivity toolbox, but how do you find them? The easiest way to discover and install open source software on your Android device is to use F-Droid [12], which provides an open source alternative to the Google Play Store service. Using F-Droid, you can browse the available apps by categories, install them, and even grab source code. Although F-Droid lacks support for screenshots, ratings, and comments, the app conveniently provides Google Play Store links for most apps, where you can leave your feedback.
