f-droid again and again downloads updates for a app that is installed via another (namely play) store. Obviously it cannot be installed because of different signatures.

How can i get F-droid to ignore foreign-store apps.


For these common apps- In F-Droid, open the info page of an app in question, click on the 3-pointed menu and select to ignore all updates for this app.

Edit: Thanks to input from BubullC this feature is incorporated in the latest version of F-droid. I haven't verified it but adding it for benefit of future vistors

    this works - thank you! but it would be great if F-Droid would recognize by itself that it is not responsible for these apps – vlad_tepesch Jun 15 '17 at 7:05
  • Maybe suggest that in F-Droid forums, of not done already ? I didn't check – beeshyams Jun 15 '17 at 7:07

    @vlad_tepesch It does now, since version 1.0 :-) – BubuIIC Nov 24 '17 at 18:02
