Hello Jolla Enthusiasts. Since Sailfish OS is not Google certified, the Google Play Store is not available by default on the Jolla smartphone, but it can be easily installed. Despite the fact that the Jolla Store provides both Sailfish OS and Android apps, applications can be also installed via F-Droid, Yandex Store and 1Mobile Android Market, that I know off.
In this article I will show you how to install the Amazon App Store on your Jolla device, running Sailfish OS. Actually, it is very easy. All you have to do:
- Download the Amazon App Store application
- Click Install
- Sign in with your Amazon Account or sign up, if you don’t have any
- Download and enjoy
For those who don’t know yet, Jolla is a project developed by former Nokia employees. The first Jolla smartphone is running on Sailfish OS, a modified Megoo Linux system, which is Android compatible, uses Wayland as the default display server , uses Nokia N9′s Maliit touchscreen keyboard and comes with interchangeable covers, allowing the users to easily switch them, in order to change the color/model of the phone and comes with impressive hardware specifications.
