Self-Hosted Spotlight: Obtainium

Meet Obtainium, an Android application for users who prefer open-source alternatives to hosted apps from the Play Store. Obtainium monitors user-specified applications for new releases directly from their source – GitHub, GitLab, F-Droid, IzzyOnDroid, etc. – and notifies when updates are available.
