Yep! It’s here the first real open source Spotify alternative for Android, I’m not gonna lie, it’s good that we have such option because sometimes adblocking doesn’t prevent the bad guys to get your data or they simply bypass it via https. Remember that ads might be infected! – So now we have something to eat – some Dogfood!
I consider the year 2017 to be done. There will be no big announcement anymore, bots are gonna stealing Christmas (like every year) and I’m in general not a big fan of x-mas. So at this point I want to show which apps I used the most this year.
Most people are still on Android 7 (Nougat) and Google is already preparing to roll out another update, Android Go Edition aka an updated Oreo. There are several improvements over Android 8 and this affects the overall OS performance by using different compression types belong other minor optimizations.
The Go Edition 8.1 also now scans your entire app collection even while you’re offline or in case you downloaded the app from another Store – this, according to Google shall improve your device security and prevent malware. Critical voices (like mine) might want to warn you about such features because it could be abused by hackers to read-out your app data – but at this time it’s only a theoretically thing since I’m not aware that this was already somehow compromised (yet?) – we btw. are talking about Play Protect.
If you love statistics you might to know how often you booted your Android device. With adb, or root and a terminal application, it’s possible to view the boot count in several easy steps. Tis count is logged after you did the last factory reset – should be known but I mention it, just in case.
Android Marshmallow (or lower) users can’t use my tutorial because the mentioned process only works with Android 7 or higher.
LibeOffice is one of my favourite open source alternative to Microsoft Office and there are important news – with the new version 6.0 we getting some neat new features and important fixes together with a facelift.
The writer implementation got several fixes, which made it easier to insert text and format your text, images and input fields.
