A Voat app is a great idea and I don't want to diminish your work, but you don't have any official affiliation with Voat and your account is fairly inactive...I'd be wary of this app, Goats.

It's certainly a third party app, however I've been in contact with @PuttItOut a lot in the past few months and he helped me implement the secure login using oauth. None of your credentials are stored on the app, there is nothing to be wary of! I understand where you're coming from though :)

Alright, as soon as Putt confirms that I'll consider believing you. Gaining the trust of goats takes more than unsubstantiated claims.

Yeah. I've been using hermit to do voat and it works great. I also am skeptical. Sorry mooseattack, it's the way us goats are built.

The login flow uses oauth and a web browser, so you're only trusting voat with your credentials :) but do as you please my friend!

I know nothing about this stuff, but if you run it through a repository like fdroid, do they verify it isn't trying to see up my dress?

I don't know what checks froid does, google play does security checks, android has permissions, and the app uses oauth login through voat. What in particular are you worried about? Maybe I have some answers for ya!

Like I said, I don't know tech anything, but reading the other responses made me wonder.

As a developer (kinda) I respect your endeavor. However due to laziness and busyness I will not be switching from boats. I hope you learned something doing the project though :)
