Hello Jolla and Sailfish OS Enthusiasts. Due to the fact that Sailfish OS does not have a native Twitter client, the Jolla engineers are porting Tweetian, Nokia’s good old Twitter client for Symbian.
The latest version available is Tweetian 188.8.131.52, which has been recently released, coming with the following features and enhancements:
- Fixed blank page after load with Sailfish OS 184.108.40.206
- Updated icons
- Enabled saving searches and removing saved searches
Because it is available via OpenRepos.net, installing Tweetian can be done via either Warehouse or by downloading the Tweetian rpm package and installing it directly from the file manager, by double-clicking the package. Tweetian 220.127.116.11.
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.
While apps with native Sailfish OS support can be installed via the Jolla Store and OpenRepos.net, Android apps can be installed via the same Jolla Store, or via F-Droid, Yandex Store, Amazon App Store, Aptoide and 1Mobile Android Market.
