@bjoern Given the shit show that is the Play Store, I don't understand how anyone can think being proprietary helps security.
@freakazoid @bjoern I claim that the number of lines of code actually audited for being malware is way higher in the Google store than it is on f-droid. At least Google throws lots of machine power against the apps for identifying malware. The number of automated analyses of f-droid apps, AFAIK, is 0. Yet, everybody can publish to f-droid. Even worse, everybody can download and install from it.
So: The (perceived) security might come from actually analysing the apps.
