Looks phenomenal mate!
I have yet to put any time in the app beyond the initial few minutes to check it out but I am confused about few things:

1) I see duplicates of app on all screens. See attached pics.
Might have something to do with the fact that I have selected all the repos?

2) Sync log - What exactly does that mean that the following failed: 06, 12, 22, 23? They are always failing. Tried to sync from multiple networks.
Is there an retry attempt happening? Where can I find the reason for failure?

3) Any way to make the sync notification to show progress like how it is happening for F-Droid now + Can we make it go away after sync has finished?

4) Suggestion: Make it possible to see somewhere from what repo the app is displayed.

Thanks for the hard work.

Suggestion:

Add "Pull down to refresh / sync", so that we no need to sync everytime by going into the setting.

I think I love you... The Fdroid app is ass, and the alternative apps aren't much better.

Works great so far. Only thing, it would be nice if you could copy/paste a repos info.
Most of them have the url and fingerprint together. The F-droid app works that way.
Thanks and keep up the fantastic work.

There is an option to do so, go to repolist & at the bottom click on 'Add Repository' you can either add repos manually or scan Qr to add.
You can also share repos, long press on repolist its to view info and share option.

Will write FAQs with such details soon.

I'm not sure why you would require logins in Aurora Droid.

And in case you are asking about Aurora Store, you can login with 2FA enabled account, you just need to generate app passwords and use the generated password to login.
