- This is a selection of the more common free software applications available for Replicant, and is nothing like a comprehensive list. You may want to check the Runs-on/Android category for more software.
- Why not recommend Mozilla branded software like Firefox, Firefox Focus, Firefox for Android (Fennec), Firefox for iOS, Firefox Focus, SeaMonkey, and Thunderbird? As explained in our Free Software Definition, all four freedoms must be available on both a commercial and non-commercial basis. Mozilla's trademark policy serves to limit Freedom 2 to gratis distribution only, making the software nonfree. Debian has permission to redistribute modified copies of these software with the original branding, but that is an exception for Debian, and anyway it is a different issue.
- Some popular apps from F-Droid do not work with Replicant without enabling llvmpipe as software renderer but it is slow. - https://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/Graphics This is not a problem on Android but it's not entirely free either.
- GNU IceCatMobile: GNU IceCat (Mozilla Firefox ESR fork) discontinued official IceCatMobile support after version 38.6.0. However many F-Droid users preferred their unofficial IceCatMobile releases even when official releases existed.
- requested for F-Droid
