Dear readers & customers,
it’s fall 2019 and in the meantime we were able to update all of our Android apps!
Most of the new key features stay the same for all of our apps, here is a short overview about them:
Of course there were some specific updates too, please check them out (they’re still for FREE!) and show us some love for our work: Visit our Android app porfolio on the official Google Play Store.
What will follow the coming weeks are bringing these releases online for the Amazon as well as the Opera app store, too.
At the moment we’re quite confident with our current app portfolio. We still got more work to do with our open source web browser app, YAABy, which will definitely occupy us for the coming years. Our apps for our ezines won’t be updated too heavily anymore. We realised what we wanted and think it’s the perfect time to promote them now. As updating is time consuming and costs a lot or resources, we still need your help! Just use the donation buttons here or on our project websites to keep us running and we’re able to afford our caffeine!
Enjoy, and always think about tomorrow.

Dear readers and digital wanderers,
we are happy to announce that we were able to stockpile our Android app portfolio this summer.
We want to tease and celebrate this announcement with the following screen shots:
It is intended to be a valuable encyclopedia for German speaking interested persons and parties. We had a huge problem in finding such a resource back in the days (it didn’t exist), took all of our expertise and created it in 2017 on our own. Find more information about this project on our “Where?” page.
What this Android app does here is not only bringing Kryptowiki to all those millions of Android devices in the world but mainly to be a companion for tracking and creating/editing the wiki pages from anywhere you are with your smartphone and tablet.
Find the features of this app as an overview here:
* optimised for Android 8.1 (Oreo)
* compatible down to Android 2.x (Froyo)
* App is themed: that means in colors and style it is based on the web project
* fancy, asymmetric and semi-transparent app icon
* main features completely usable within the app: login, watch list and random article
* built-in button for manual updating
* Menu navigation in German, English, as well as in the languages of all German Neighbouring Countries: Danish, French, Italian, Luxembourgish, Dutch, Polish, Czech
* Chromebook support
* Lightweight: App is less than 900KB
As with all our apps it’s available via the official Google Play store too: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.kryptowiki&hl=en_US.
We hope you enjoy this app as much as we do and wish you all the best in creating and contributing to one of the most exciting free & open encyclopedias of our century,
all the best,

It’s summer plus it’s 2017, so it’s about time to update our Android apps the following weeks.
We would like to begin with an already uploaded update of our inhouse web browser YAABy.
The newest version here is able to display favicons and is now also usable on all the coming Chromebooks. You’ll find all of the information regarding this release on the official website: yaaby.eu. Just click on the banners from Google Play Store & Amazon there to arrive directly at the product detail page. We hope you enjoy this newest version as much as we do!
Right now we’re programming the updates for JPCARS.de, gizmeo.eu, zockerseele.com. These will be available the next two weeks or so. In sum it’s an update for Android 7.x.x (Nougat) and some code cleaning. These will be the last updates also before the official release of Android O by Google. We hope you like what you’ll see and as always…
…if you want to support our work, please flattr us or donate some Bitcoin! The appropriate buttons are shown on every single page here on aethyx.eu. Every donation will be fully spent inhouse to keep this project running and save us nerves and financial drama in the near and far future. It’ll also secure our unique idea of an indie web publishing house which we think will become more and more important regarding current political and media situations worldwide.
That’s it from AETHYX MEDIAE for now,
only the bestest to all of you,

Approximately one and a half year ago one of our authors hacked together an Android app for FEMEN. The nature of this movement involves bare human breasts which is the main reason we weren’t able so far to distribute it via offical app stores like Google Play.
But fear not, the author released the app already into the wild and it’s actually available via GitHub, see here:
Licensed under the GPLV2 which means the digital world is invited to add code as well as features at any time to develop this project further.
Most of the time so far the releases here are maintenance releases: updating the app to run under the most current Android OS version as well as updating the resources used here. Social networks take down FEMEN pages quite often for no reason. To find and implement new content as soon as possible is one of the main tasks for new versions so far.
Please share and include the app into the open repositories where possible!
Also, don’t hesitate to join the project if you’re a coder or have new ideas for this app!
There should be more movements like FEMEN out there. The world would be a much better and more intelligent place for all of us. Rock on, girls!

firstly, a Happy New Year! Make your wishes come true!
Secondly, all of our Android apps except YAABy were updated shortly:
What we completely dismissed is Facebook. We deleted all of our Facebook sites associated with our projects (for obvious reasons meanwhile). What you still can do is like the articles inside our apps and on our web pages, of course. But Facebook is there just another social site of many. That’s the way it should be, we thought.
Thirdly, we made them Marshmellow-compatible, which means Android 6.x.x support. According to our experiences from our inhouse testers the Chromium engine running our apps is much more stable and faster then in previous app versions. Try it, feel it! It’s always best to upgrade Android apps to the newest versions anyway.
If you want to do us a favour (upgrading apps is a time intensive and nerve eating process), use Flattr as well as Bitcoin underneath this post! We. Need. More. Alcohol!
See you around!
