Jolla’s Sailfish OS supports Android Apps but not Google Play!
Jolla’s Sailfish OS supports Android apps, but won’t allow you to download them from Google Play, according to report from 3T.
At least first there’s not going to be Google Play included, but there’s also many other app providing services, which shares Android apps, including Opera Mobile Store, Amazon AppStore, Handango and GetJar. It’s still unclear, which app sharing providers Jolla will use or even which ones they are now in discussions.
It’s very important for Jolla to make a deal with Android App providers as there’s now more than 700,000 Android apps.
Android is open source, unlike Apple, which keeps strict control on what apps are accepted in App Store. This fact also makes Android vulnerable for malicious apps.
Jolla is also launching it’s first smartphone in next year.
