Proprietary license. This should not be recommended here
I did not expected that this topic would become so hot.
Let's ignore that easyorg does not run on Android and concentrate on
proprietary vs. free app.
I believe that in such cases a helpful answer gently pushing users to
free software should be like: "Application P is a proprietary one. There
are F and G apps that have close set of features and superior for tasks
like T and D." Though such reply is almost impossible if discussion of P
is aggressively discouraged and sharing discussion summary on a web site
is prohibited because a web page may be associated with a GNU project.
Without mention of P the phrase becomes significantly less convincing,
it may give impression that people suggesting F and G are completely
unaware of what P really is.
I do not think that intention was to promote the particular app using a
GNU mail list, so my perception is that reaction without offering a free
alternative was harsh. It would be acceptable in the case more delay to
see that nobody can post a better answer.
I am unsure what is more strange, purism close in its degree to
absurdity or partial measures like wiping mentions of proprietary
software without removing of complete section
info "(org) Org Mobile" https://orgmode.org/manual/Org-Mobile.html
so that only a half of solution is really described. I would expect more
P.S. Juan Manuel, from my point of view, your message suggesting running
emacs in termux is one of 2 helpful suggestions in this thread. Perhaps
the topic starter is seeking for a UI suitable for touch screen rather
than complete set of features, but due to lack of details we do not know it.
I have not tried any Org related application on Android, so I can not
suggest anything. I had a hope to learn something new from this topic.
