Write your privacy apps list you whould like to have in librem5 from the day one
2)camera app with metadata editor
3) firefox version compatible with desktop profile we can copy
4)matrix client and linphone client
5)offline maps like osmand, not really about privacy but a must
What’s your list?
6) linphone an awesome linux sip client, i think they just need to make a mobile ui because this is already avalaible for linux
My App-Whish-List for the Librem 5 based on Android Apps:
At least a Client which is compatible to Keepass Databases
I think that’s a pure a must have
Or any other easy way to access TOR
Old fashiones, not up to date with encryption but convenient and still better than (public) VPN’s
Silence (SMS Secure)
An easy way to encrypt Standard-SMS
A Jabber-XMPP Client, which is able to handle OMEMO
Even though I’m not in line with the Privacy Statement of Matrix and even though I still do not understand, why it is not possible to finally delete a complete Room as a Room-Admin (which actually is a privacy no-go).
Secure WiFi Manager
Keeps Privacy and saves a lot of Battery: By analyzing the Base-band-Towers, it detects, whether your are close to known WiFi and switches WiFi on and off automatically
Simply a must-have. Of course including Contact-, Calendar- and Task-List Synchronization.
AIMSICD / Snoopswitch
Get an idea on the Mobile-Phone-Network, Silent SMS, IMSI Catchers and other nasty stuff
OpenKeychain / GnuPG
Painful but still necessary
Browser with Privacy Features or Plug-In’s
NoScript, HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock Origin
SMS Theft Control
There is no Open-Source-App available for this functionality, at least as far as I know …
Define a another specific Mobile Phone Number from which (and only from this Number) you can sent encrypted Commands with a hashed Password like:
locate -> submits the Geo-Coordinates of the lost / stolen phone to the other Mobile Phone
submit -> sent a Message to the lost or Stolen Mobile Phone, visible on the Lock Screen (Give me back my phone, please call the following Number…)
erase -> Throws away the encryption keys of the lost / stolen Phone
There are other Commands, which could be useful.
At least such solution would avoid using the usual spying 3rd Party Servers for such functionality.
Firewall between Base-band- and Application Processor
Of course only possible if Base-band- and Application processor physically 2 devices, which so far is not available in the market (unfortunately)
That’s so far my basic “should have”-Privacy-List.
My most needed app: Anki, flashcards spaced repetition software for learning.
I’d like to see an implementation of delta chat, meaning that when in phone mode, sending e-mails could be done just as sending any message on most common android messengers.
Maybe (impossible, but desirable) a Brazilian-portuguese voice sinthetization app.
@be_root: Do you have any kind of “official” statement that they are going to implement a client for the Librem 5? Would love to see Threema on my new phone, since I convinced all my (important) contacts to switch from WhatsApp to Threema and I won’t convince them to change the chat app again, no way.
Since I drive an electric car, I often use the PlugShare and ChargePoint apps to locate available charging stations. These sites can be accessed via a web browser. When my car is using a ChargePoint charger, however, the app will show real time charging information (it will tell me if charging has slowed or when it is complete). I could conceivably live without the app, but it’s nice to have.
