Installation method 2: In the geek way, via zypper.

Since Sailfish OS is pure openSUSE, you have to switch to developer mode, install zypper, add the repository and key, update the system and install MeeCast app. Like this:

# pkcon install zypper
# zypper ar -f http://sailfish.openrepos.net/alaingrange/personal-main.repo
# rpm --import http://sailfish.openrepos.net/openrepos.key
# zypper refresh
# zypper install fastdial

To uninstall FastDial, you have to install zypper (if you haven’t installed it already) and uninstall the app via zypper :

# pkcon install zypper
# zypper remove fastdial

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.
