Hpp-logo.png High Priority Projects
Free phone operating system is listed on FSF's High Priority Free Software Projects.

This collection is maintained by the Free software replacement project team.

Replicant is a fully free Android-like distribution that meets the Free System Distribution Guidelines (GNU FSDG).[1]

Mobile phones concentrate a huge number of issues in the same device, including many freedom issues.

As for Android, it doesn't respect users' freedom, so we urge all Android users to switch to a mobile device that supports Replicant.

Applications

Collaboration with Replicant

Replicant is a free Android-like distribution that meets the Free System Distribution Guidelines (GNU FSDG),[2] but F-Droid doesn't follow the GNU FSDG.[3] We recommend you to use a Replicant supported device and install apps only listed in our Replicant collection as we collaborate with Replicant on that list.

Free apps

Note that these apps have not been reviewed by the Replicant developers (yet).

  1. This is a selection of the more common free software applications available for Replicant, and is nothing like a comprehensive list. You may want to check the Runs-on/Android category for more software. Replicant-only programs may be listed here as well but has external links since the Directory only includes program entries for GNU systems.
  2. Mozilla branded programs such as Firefox and Thunderbird are not free software unless their names are changed. This is due to Mozilla's trademark policy that forbids selling copies of unmodified executables.
  3. Some popular apps from F-Droid do not work with Replicant without enabling llvmpipe as software renderer but it is slow. - https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/Graphics This is not a problem on Android but it's not entirely free either.
  4. GNU IceCatMobile: GNU IceCat (Mozilla Firefox ESR fork) discontinued official IceCatMobile support after version 38.6.0. However many F-Droid users preferred their unofficial IceCatMobile releases even when official releases existed.
