i think an independent free software android app
with an open standard format would be better.
Similar to PassAndroid, maybe that could be used as a base.
Such an open standard could be used by any app and
the FSFE could promote it as open standard.
The free software app should provide all the fancy features
a user would expect from a cloud app like graphs and analytics, but all locally.
That would be indeed perfect for Prototype Fund and probably other funds.
Maybe ligi is interested to start such a project?
