How do I choose?

Is there programming language you like? Maybe there is an app you recognize and use already yourself? Exploring the project websites, installing the apps and trying them out can help you choose.

That's it! In the next step we will look at how to build from source code, you will only need the code URL of the project, placed in this page in the project description.
