    Pros: 

    Open-source focus

    Cons: 

    Significant portion of their app descriptions are copied from the very apps they're trying to compete against.

Hi, I did not expect being hunted, but I'm really honored :) Be aware it's a Beta, so please do not store sensitive data ;) You can learn more about how we plan to make open source software sustainable by reading the master plan: https://www.kerkour.fr/blog/bloo...

Do you think you're going to run into legal trouble by directly calling yourself an open source 'Google', using Google's colors for your logo, and several other things they could claim is an infringement on their trademark?

@kraftykyle Hi, Thank you for the feedback. If I committed any kind of legal infringement I will happily fix. Currently the logo is as it because my graphic designer friend didn't had much time (exams) and as not being a graphic designer myself, I just followed the material design spec, which is the only extensive open system design I'm aware of :)
Would be great to see the tools before signing up.
@jamesmudgett Thank you for the feedback. Be sure I will add it to the roadmap! 📅
Yeah, you need to show people what they're walking into before you ask them to commit. Even if it's just real screen grabs.
@gregw Thank you for the feedbak. It's a recurring comment, so be assured I will add it to the roadmap!
Please don’t make it look like Google. Your logo is nice but looks like a Google product.
