Privacy Friendly Dicer App

The Privacy Friendly Dicer application can be used to roll between one and ten six-sided dice. It belongs to the group of Privacy Friendly Apps. The number of dice can be chosen by a slider. Rolling the dice can be done by pressing a button or shaking the smartphone. By a short vibration the app signalizes that it rolled the dice and displays the results.

It is possible to switch vibration and dicing by shaking on and off in the settings.

Our Privacy Friendly Dicer App differs with respect to two aspects:

  1. Minimal amount of permissions
    "VIBRATE" in the categorie "Other". This permission is required to use the vibration feedback.
  2. No Advertisement
    Many other free apps in the Google Play Store dazzle annoying advertising which also shortens battery life.

 

Download the App 

We offer several ways to download the app:

  • Official Google Play Store (Feel free to provide feedback, see contact. We would be pleased to receive a positive rating if you like the app )
  • F-Droid Store (The F-Droid Store is an open source software store where you can download the APK-file of the app. Apps installed that way won't receive any updates, unless you regularly download the newest version from the F-Droid website or use the offical F-Droid Store App).
  • If you are interested in the development of apps or the source code, you can find it at GitHub.
