I switched from proton last month and I never looked back. I highly suggest it

"First, we plan to release our apps on F-droid, an open source Android app repository, which is today one of the most popular alternative app stores. In addition to F-droid, we are also considering a few additional app distribution channels, including the Samsung Galaxy Store, the Amazon App store, and the Huawei AppGallery. Samsung and Huawei are, respectively, the largest and second-largest smartphone manufacturers in the world."
5 years ago, back in the fundraiser days, the developers promised a libre app eventually
3 years ago a proprietary app was released with a promise that one day, IF the funds to maintain it properly are acquired, it will be opensourced
Now we fallen all the way down to "we'll try to stick it in f-droid but don't worry we got plenty of proprietary alternatives if it doesn't workout"
Do you not see the issue here?
Life is too short and we're all too poor to settle on "it's okay, but.." software
If it doesn't make you happy, try an alternative. Just because something is good, doesn't mean something can't be better.
Maybe you'll decide to stick with proton in the end, but I think the alternatives are worth a try
@wuwei @Divert @kim "We are doing a professional/independent third party audit at this time before open sourcing. The reason is, its better to have professionals doing an audit, before we "invite" the Russians to do their own "audit"."
Unless they are lying, I still have some hope.
Oh yes, them saying the current app hadn't been properly audited sure brings me a lot of comfort.
Look I would love if it did come out, however fact is it's 3 years too late.
If their app wasn't ready they shouldn't have released it under a proprietary licence and instead let developers help them prepare it.
Not gonna happen since years later their app is still proprietary
@wuwei ah ok, I see, according the wikipedia page the client is open source (mit) and the mobile app is propietary, hmmm sad very sad
@protonmail Awesome! Definitely gonna try it, looks much better than my custom css atm
@protonmail how is the screen reader accessibility? JAWS, NVDA, Talkback, Voiceover?
@protonmail reminder to all readers that ProtonMail is an open source gaslighter, apropriating the language of open source while at once pushing proprietary software, non-standard protocols, and vendor lock-in
How much weight the new webpage?
@protonmail Thank you! Really great job!
Waiting for the themes only :)
@protonmail Just open source your apps, how hard can it be…
@protonmail nice improvement, guys, keep up the great work!
@protonmail great news! Just tried it and got a few comments: the little lock icon stays on top forever, and I opened a mail and couldn't find any way to delete it... No way to find the settings either... Thanks for your work!
@protonmail we need iPad app please.
@r iOS may not respect your privacy.
@protonmail Unsurprisingly, the so-called modern design gives me an unreliable feeling.
@protonmail Stop fuckin around people.. where's my protondrive!?
@retroartdt Hi! We are hoping to have a public beta by 2020.
@protonmail Oh man, this is exciting. How do we opt in?
