|Thousands of Android applications will be available for Jolla devices through Yandex.Store's Android app store client for Sailfish OS. Currently featuring over 85,000 apps in 17 categories, Yandex.Store offers the best and most popular Android apps - from social networking and communication apps like Twitter, Foursquare, Skype, Viber and WeChat to games like Angry Birds. Yandex.Store will provide in-app purchase opportunities and is available on smartphones and tablets in 37 languages. |
An integral part of Jolla's Sailfish OS is integrated Android compatible application runtime that Jolla has developed in co-operation with Myriad AG.
"Jolla's strategy is always to work with the most respectable service partners in specific markets and create long-term strategic partnerships. We analysed a number of alternative Android app stores to use for our first markets in Europe, and quickly found out that Yandex's offer is very competitive and that they are very interested in developing their app store together with us for the needs of Sailfish customers", says Jolla CEO, Tomi Pienimäki.
