As much as I would want that, I really doubt it. And that is one of the few things that keeps me away from Jolla (also Linux for desktop). It's that I'll feel like a savage, depending on a few people to actually make an unofficial app which are available for a LONG time on other platforms. Jolla is not yet acknowledged as an OS. Even Windows Phone (which has more market share) has similar issues. OFC, it's a little different here because you can use some Android apps, but that's still not official support.

In its heyday, webOS had quite a number of 'official' apps. And its heyday was in the time that iOS ruled #2 and Android was #3 while Symbian was still #1 popular. And you know why? Because coding for webOS was as easy as cutting a tomato (I speak from experience). Even Rovio got Angry Birds ported to webOS in an hour (that's what they said).
Coding for SailfishOS is a bit harder, but on the other hand: Qt is an uprise on the desktop (Windows, Mac, Linux, AmigaOS and Haiku) so it's getting more popular every day. Even quite a lot of companies are using/experimenting with Qt now. So that means there's hope for easy ports to SailfishOS.

I would like to see a native Bit Torrent Sync Application and a Client for Pyload.

Using Android Apps seems to be a cool way to Bridge that Needs, but it cant be a Goal of Sailfish in the future!

The only reason to buy a Jolla for me is that it is "more open source than all the other osīs" and it seems to care about privacy (doesnt Need any Live ID oder Apple Cloud or Google Account).

How about integrating Whatsapp into messaging app? Is this possible with the consent of facebook?

Nope. WhatsApp is still blocking users who use unofficial apps like Mitakuuluu. They don't want to support other apps. Stupid company. Even sibling company Instagram is more open than that. Instagram has a limited API but at least they have an API.

It's too bad there's no other option for SailfishOS atm though. I mean: native. WhatsApp is the only widely used messaging app (aside from Facebook messaging) to have a native client for SailfishOS.

So sad. I hope there will soon be a way around because most of the people(at least in India) use whatsapp only for messaging.

As someone wrote in an early post here. Opera should be added to the voting list!!
It's by faar the best webbrowser for mobile devices. I use it on my Nokia N9 and also on my Android devices Nexus5 and Nexus7.
Given a high ranking together with current figures of the number of Jolla smartphones sold (and of course the upcoming  Jolla Tablet) maybee its possible to get Opera Software ASA interrested to port it for SailfishOS?

hello

it is unfortunate that FireFox Market not work natively with default Sailfish Browser, it's work with  Firefox  Android installed by F-droid, it's  install Apps on sailfish Homescreen but run Firefox Android after and not sailfish Browser

This will give a free application access panel as Diaspora client.

thanks

Nico

 XWayland to squat OpenSuse and Fedora ArmV7HL repository more easily ; IE  to install  ArmV7HL Firefox and use Firefox OS App or ArmV7HL VLC  .

Please add:

- Native firefox - default browser, at fact, unusable. And no another stable/working browser in Warehouse and Jolla shop
- Native Chromium - alternative, and, some times part of sites works fine with Gecko engine, and some times with WebKit.
- powerfull Jabber client - included client doesn't works, f.e., with slack :(
- Yes, having native whatsupp, telegram, viber will be best! We need a powerfull/stable software, like Google talk app

My absolute #1 is proper SIP support. It is why I still have to have 2 separate phones - a jolla, and one that does SIP properly.
