No, I want to try the latest build(APK) from main branch

Sure, Download latest signed build from here.

What are the requirements?

So far none except you should have Android 6.0 OS at a minimum. Below this version may not work.

What Gitea version I need?

Please make sure that you are on latest Gitea(last major two stable releases, e.g 1.9 and 1.10) or later. Below this may not work as one would expect because of the newly added objects to the API at later versions. Please consider updating your Gitea server. Check the versions compatibility page which lists all the supported versions with compatibility ratio.

Will it work with other applications similar to Gitea like Gogs?

It's not tested and may not work because of the difference in API endpoints. But if the APIs are the same it would definitely work.

I want to help translate it to my language

That's great to hear. We use Crowdin for translation. If your language is not listed, please request here to add it to the project.

How can I help?

You can help in many ways, for example, using the app and reporting issues you encounter. Contributing via code and translations. If that are not your things you can help via donations to get the development going and help in infrastructure costs. You can also help buying the paid version from play store.
