i am very happy with younited so far and it would be great to have a native younited jolla app, because the android app used with jolla does not offer all possibilities (backup sms)

This is not exactly the right place to post this, since Younited is by F-Secure, but I totally agree. Anyway, it's not up to Jolla if this gets done or not.

I agree with you. Since Jolla does not have its own cloud service. It is very important that the integration layer for general cloud services would be exist. Yuonited service is interesting, but preferably, I see the integrations directly to the most common cloud services ie. iDrive, Dropbox, SkyDrive, etc.

@Tuokki I disagree with you about prefering those NSA American clouds like icloud, dropbox and skydrive. The best solution would be the Finnish Younited with no backdoors for the NSA. Younited made by the well known F-secure

I have high hopes maybe getting a native younited app for Jolla 'cause both Jolla and F-secure are Finnish companys.

According to this tweet:

it'll be in the store this week. However, Timo Laaksonen also says it'll be an Android application, not a native Sailfish one. This is a major bummer given that most Android apps (including the cloud backup service I have installed right now) do not 'see' most of my files.

it sounds bad for Jolla/sailfishos that a partnership ends with an android apps... Android apps are only to fill in gaps that you may have with native apps. But I was hoping more from a collaboration between the two companies :(

what, an android app o.O this is a huge disapointment

Whippler ( 2014-09-30 14:23:41 +0200 )edit

An Android app? Who cares, then? It's been available on other app stores for ages, if people wanted to install the Android app, they would already have done so.

nthn ( 2014-09-30 14:29:05 +0200 )edit

Well isn't this great ending for half a year of waiting... I mean, why make an announcement of partnership if it all along meant just an android app people can download from elsewhere?

Grunt ( 2014-09-30 15:18:32 +0200 )edit

Well, that is pretty useless, for that matter you can use any Android cloud storage app. I have been using OneDrive - it works well and it offers more space, than Younited. The only problem is - i doesn't synchronise photos automatically, it doesn't recognise photos taken with the Jolla camera app, it only recognises photos takes with Android apps (like Instagram for example).

A hint that perhaps a native sailfish app isn't out of the question just yet:

@iliveinpublic We're working with @JollaHQ to publish a @GetYounited Android app in Jolla store. That's not the end of the story, more later

He could have made that clearer for sure. Thanks for the info!

nthn ( 2014-10-01 19:52:34 +0200 )edit

Let's hope they follow through. I would assume they have done some implementation already, it's been a long time since the partnership was announced. So my guess is that either they hit some obstacles that they weren't prepared for, or that Jolla haven't met their sales targets or some other KPI they set as a requirement for the deal to go through.

I was wondering what link Jolla owners and Younited have, do we have more space, or special options, or anything? Do we need a special code when registrating for the first time in Younited?

damourti ( 2014-10-02 16:13:02 +0200 )edit

I have already uninstalled Younited. Only for Android fils and stuff.

Solution (10 finger GUI):

copy bakup to sdcard

remove TOH

remove sdcard

insert sdcard in PC

copy content of scard 2 PC

remove sdcard

insert sdcart in phone

click back on TOH

Somehow this gives me ako pre-Symbian feeling...

Announcement on official Younited blog:

"Stay tuned for a closer integration in the coming months"

As well as some updates by Jolla via Twitter:

"Hi! We're working on native support for Younited via plug-ins, stay tuned for updates!"

"Tighter integration of Younited with Sailfish OS is coming soon, thanks for your interest!"

"Younited Android app now available in Jolla store, try it out! Stay tuned for further SailfishOS integration soon!"

native support for Younited via plug-ins

That's hardly a native application, though.

strongm ( 2014-10-03 16:52:57 +0200 )edit

I'd say integration is better than a separate application though.

nthn ( 2014-10-03 16:59:05 +0200 )edit

@strongm: Yes seems like they will keep the Android app and fill the gap system-aliendalvik with plugins. Otherwise their statements would sound different.

molan ( 2014-10-03 17:04:53 +0200 )edit

@caprico what plugin framework has SailfishOS? Since there's not even a native fike manager, i find it difficult to understand where does this plugin would fit. Have you an idea?

magullo ( 2014-10-04 15:52:07 +0200 )edit

@magullo: Good question, I seriously have no idea... I'm very curious as well!
