<h1><a href="/wiki/Degoogle">Degoogle</a> / App Compatibility</h1>
<p>
This is my App Compatibility Table for the Play Store apps I use and their
status running on a google-free Android device.
</p>
<p>
My test device is a Pixel (1st gen) running LineageOS 17 without Google Apps
nor microG. Play Store apps were downloaded using
<a href="https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com.aurora.store/" target="_blank">Aurora
Store</a> on F-Droid.
</p>
<p><strong>Legend:</strong></p>
<ul>
<li><strong class="text-success">Green:</strong> app works to an acceptable
level of functionality.</li>
<li><strong class="text-warning">Yellow:</strong> app works at a basic level
<em>OR</em> there is a functional web-app alternative.</li>
<li><strong class="text-danger">Red:</strong> app does not work AND there
is no suitable web-app alternative.</li>
</ul>
