F-Droid Client

build status
Translation status

Client for F-Droid, the Free Software repository system
for Android.

Building with Gradle

./gradlew assembleRelease

Direct download

You can download the application directly
from our site or browse it in the repo.


See our Contributing doc for information on how to report
issues, translate the app into your language or help with development.


We are on #fdroid and #fdroid-dev on Freenode. We hold weekly dev meetings
on #fdroid-dev on Thursdays at 11:30h UTC, which usually last half an hour.


  • Why does F-Droid require "Unknown Sources" to install apps by default?

Because a regular Android app cannot act as a package manager on its
own. To do so, it would require system privileges (see below), similar
to what Google Play does.

  • Can I avoid enabling "Unknown Sources" by installing F-Droid as a
    privileged system app?

This used to be the case, but no longer is. Now the Privileged
is the one that should be placed in
the system. It can be bundled with a ROM or installed via a zip.
