Google removed K-9 Mail from the Play store with zero notice because the description of the app included alternate spellings of the app name we'd included to work around how bad Play's search is.

@obra @digitalcourage Is there an official source to support this info? I'd like to use this in my book and therefore need some verification.

@reticuleena What counts as official? Google sent me the email. I screenshotted it.

@obra An entry on the f-droid website would suffice. Or by an organisation like FSFE or the like. Thanks for taking this seriously. :)


@reticuleena I may not be able to help you, then. I have nothing to do with fdroid or FSFE. I am however the original creator of K-9.

@obra Does K-9 have its own website? This would be the best place.

An while I have you: Thank you so much for your work. It's an honor to talk to the creator of K-9. Been using it for ages and never wanted for more. <3
