Further to this, an easy way to install other apps that aren't 
available in f-droid is to download an app called "Yalp Store" from 
f-droid. That is a simple and nice interface to the "Google Play 
Store", so you can browse and download anything from there, without 
needing to log in or identify yourself. There will be some 
applications there that won't work on Replicant, because they depend 
on non-free libraries, but some certainly do.
