Is GitNex free?

Yes, it's free and open source. However, it is also available as a paid version on the Play Store to support development and infrastructure.

How can I install it?

You can install GitNex directly from F-droid. It is also available in the Google Play store as paid OR download the APK from the releases page and install it in your preferred Android device.

I want to try the latest build(APK) from main branch.

Sure, Download latest signed build from here.

What are the requirements?

So far none except you should have Android 6.0 OS at a minimum. Versions below this may not work.

What Forgejo or Gitea version I need?

Please make sure that you are on latest Forgejo or Gitea(last major two stable releases, e.g 1.9 and 1.10) or later. Below this may not work as one would expect because of the newly added objects to the API at later versions. Please consider updating your Forgejo or Gitea server. Check the versions compatibility page which lists all the supported versions with compatibility ratio.

Will it work with other applications similar to Forgejo or Gitea like Gogs?

It's not tested and may not work due to differences in API endpoints. However, if the APIs are the same, it will definitely work.

I have installed the APK from the release page, but installing or updating it from F-Droid or the Play Store is throwing an error.

Please uninstall the existing app and then install it from your preferred store or location. This is because GitNex uses different keys for end builds, such as release, release CI tag, Play Store, and F-Droid.

I want to help translate it to my language

That's great to hear. We use Crowdin for translation. If your language is not listed, please request here to add it to the project.

How can I help?

You can help in many ways. For example, you can use the app and report any issues you encounter, or contribute code and translations. If those are not your strengths, you can help by donating to support development and infrastructure costs. You can also support us by purchasing the paid version from the Play Store.
