#Tusky 9 will be the last Version distributed via the Amazon Appstore. In case you use the Amazon Appstore, please switch to F-Droid.
I still view us as an interim-group working to get this off the ground. So we started with the basics. Most of our decisions will be based on the discussions we’ve already held during the meetings and in between about what we want, the ones you’ve joined for.

Try to imagine a world where every advertisement was replaced with art celebrating you as a worker and reminding you of your power and value.
