Are there plans of putting the app on F-Droid, Google Play Store?

For sure. We’ll work to have it published both on F-Droid and Google Play Store.

Will there ever be an iOS version? Is it even possible?

Apparently it’s technically possible. We’re not sure we’ll focus our efforts on it right now.

Wouldn’t that be a huge battery drain? What about data-plan?

The app is pre-configured to keep battery and network data usage to a minimum. You can configure the app to avoid data-plan use as well.

Can I use the app on my everyday phone?

Yes, you can. Configure it to “preserve data”, so it only connects on Wifi and “preserve battery” to run only when charging.

Does it run on my Android X, Y, Z phone?

The application runs on Android Lollipop 5.1 and above. So any modern phone should work.

What can I do with it?

You can access and create content on Freenet. Access FMS Archive to see what the Freenet community is talking about.

Will there be a “Mobile FMS”?

We’ll work on Forums, File sharing, Blogging and Friend-to-friend support on the Mobile app.
