Description

At:

https://www.torproject.org/download/download

We should add:

'[android logo] Android'

Option at the menu [see screenshot download-01 attached]

Change the download easy page for Android to be Tor Browser for Android instead of Orbot:

https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en#android

The link that goes to this page comes from the little menu on the right [see screenshot download-02 attached]

Download button should link to apk build and we should include a link to the package signature as well, just like we do for the other ones.

There is no need for a language selection option, as this build is not yet localized.

Copy for the page:

Introducing Tor Browser for Android, the mobile browser with the highest privacy protections ever available and on par with Tor Browser for desktop. You can download the alpha release on GooglePlay[1] or FDroid[2], or you can get the apk by clicking on the button bellow.

Note: For this release, you also need to install Orbot, you can learn more about it here.[3]

[maybe add this too?]
Known issue: Our Security Slider is now under ‘Security Settings,’ but because of a small issue, it’s only showing up after you restart the app. We plan on fixing it for the next release.

[1] need to get link still

[2] same thing

[3] should link to this page: https://www.torproject.org/docs/android.html.en

Who is the author, the image metadata shows proprietary license, is this correct? (for layout.css)

APK link: https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/mobile/1.0a1/tor-browser-android-arm-1.0a1.apk

Will do the fixes and push tomorrow morning EU time.

the signature link does not work yet - should probably point to https://www.torproject.org/dist/torbrowser/mobile/1.0a1/tor-browser-android-arm-1.0a1.apk.asc

After my PR got merged the icons on the projects page are at the wrong place (because I made changes to the css that affect other pages) and propose to revert master to the parent commit: be786f13815cc1bb3830d0054b1afaee350748d5
Also download-easy shows the link to the apk which we do not want to distribute.

I found the layout was fine for 03008936cc8603fa26a53fad73d4d3da40e22e85 and was broken since
15a69a5acb324befdb9c2680675ae0cf7b3d5e5b but probably went unnoticed because yui-compressor css/layout.css -o css/layout.min.css was not run before. The culprit line seems to be

-    .projectbox .projectdesc {
+    .projectbox .projecesc {

Fix is applied in https://github.com/torproject/webwml/pull/36

download-easy links an outdated apk file without signature, fix: https://github.com/torproject/webwml/pull/41

comment:11 Changed 13 months ago by gk

It seems I am a bit late to the party, but: our download pages are usually only linking directly to *stable* versions. The alphas are reachable over https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en#downloads-alpha. Are we sure we want to make an exception for Android for that?

On the Android blog post the link to "download page" points to https://www.torproject.org/download/download-easy.html.en#android but this page has issues. (fixed: #27541)

Unfortunately both download pages have an anchor problem (#27540) with enabled javascript.

Without javascript on download-easy the BSD section overlaps the heading for Android. Do you see it as well?

(And "Tor Browser for Android has only be released in alpha-version.": maybe "been" instead of "be"? Or it could say

"Tor Browser for Android has no stable version yet, but we just released an alpha-version.")
