Webcat now allows opening a link in new window.
This way you can use Sailfish multitasking gestures to switch between webpages.

Nice!

Yeah. Really nice indeed. But there are still some bgs. E.g. window is not correctly resizing in landscape mode, credentials when logged in somewhere do not get recognized in second window to name two major ones...

There is a port of keepassx to Sailfish. It's called ownKeepass and can be found via tmo.

First impression is really great and it works very nice. The developer implemented cover actions just the way I'd have done it if I had ported it. But I'm really grateful someone else did that job!

There is a really good Music player called QuasarMX available on the Jolla store now.
That player apparently has been available for Symbian and Meego (N9) for a while.

In the Jolla store, you can download the free (lite) version.
To get the Pro version (4,99€ for one operating system or 7,99€ for a license for ALL supported platforms, including desktop windows, linux and soon Android) , you buy the license from the developer's homepage and simply enter a code you received in the settings area in the app.

Most important (special) features:
- very good audio quality
- cover art downloader
- lyrics view / downloader
- GAPLESS PLAYBACK (a killer feature for me as I like listening to live albums and some others that should play without a gap between tracks)
- car mode: screen does not turn off in this mode, only dimms from time to time. This can even be set to automatically start when a certain bluetooth device (i.e. Car Stereo) is connected to the phone.


This is definitely my new standard Music Player on my Jolla.

Sounds nice, thanks for letting us know! I'll check it.

So this is probably the first developer who decided to offer a paid version of an application for the Jolla. Maybe I should do the same...

BTW. This clearly shows how Jolla is losing money. If they allowed any kind of payments via their store, they would be earning some ~30% on every such sale. Are they too rich to ignore it...?

Right, that was one reason for my post - but then I forgot to mention that in my original post.

I've done quite a lot of long distance driving in my car, using QuasarMX to listen to music via my Car's Bluetooth system.

Still VERY satisfied with the app.
Finally I can listen to e.g. Dream Theater's "Metropolis Pt.2" album without getting annoyed at every track change - gapless playback really works perfectly.

This is really nice, I think license files are good solution for mobile devices. I specially like buy once, activate anywhere approach. I would definitely buy the all platform version for all applications I use even if it costs a bit more.

It's a good idea but unless each copy of the app needs a unique code there is no copyright protection. But how is the developer going to achieve this when the lite version is common to all users?

Seems like the developer is hoping for honest users.

The license allows a user to install the software on every device he owns.
So - no unique code.

Maybe some mechanism kicks in when hundreds of devices try to use the same license?
I think you need internet connection to register the pro version...

It is possible to connect it to a server somehow. That you don't need only a key-file/key-code, but also connect to the Internet and let it communicate with a server over https. If it sends it's IMEI number and it's initial key-code to an activation server, and if activation limit has not been exceeded then it provides the real key-file. The activation limit can be high or low, but if it's low then customers should be permitted to send an email to ask for some additional activations. If you reflash your phone and keep your IMEI file, the server will be able to match it with a previous activation if it has a record of previous attempts so it can just reuse that maybe instead of counting as another attempt.

I believe it is nice if the developer trust the customers enough to not make it inconvenient for the legitimate customers, but no customer should have the need to install one application to 5 different phones during the first month I think. Maybe add 1-2 activation attempts every 6 months or so?

While this kind of approach is admirable, I very quickly learned that relying on people's honesty won't bring me far. The Nokia store does not provide any kind of copy-protection and doesn't allow any protection from the developer's side (and it is very easy to grab the SIS file on hacked Symbian phones and the .deb on the N9 during installation), the result of which has been that (while Symbian and N9 were still alive) my applications instantly were made available on warez sites with download counters much higher than the numer of copies ever sold...

It is bad that honest users have to suffer dealing with activation codes and such due to dishonest users, but I'm afraid there isn't much that can be done about it (if the developer expects to get just about any revenue) on open platforms where one can easily grab the application and distribute it. It looks different on Blackberry 10 where there is absolutely no access to the part of file system containing applications installed from the BB app store, which is a 100% sufficient protection against unauthorized copies and thus no other protection is needed.

Flappy Bird is available as a native app in the Jolla Store. Very nice and simple.
It is interesting that it has been released for Jolla, given the story behind it everyone probably knows.
I must say I had no experience with it previously on other platforms, but I can understand the buzz now. Nice to have on my Jolla.
