So with the recent price drop I am seriously considering buying a jolla, despite the old hardware and the huge size of the phone. However, I was wondering which applications are available for Sailfish. I already checked openrepos, but haven't found a list of the applications in the harbour (and according to https://together.jolla.com/question/2721/jolla-application-store-web-version/ there is still no web version of the catalogue).

Is there somewhere a list of the applications in the harbour? Even if it is not browsable, has no information on the applications, is slightly outdated, just a list would already be very helpful.

Update

thank you all for the replies. I wasn't looking for a specific application, just wanted to know what existed apart from the openrepos applications. Apparently, most of you are happy with the available applications, so I have ordered the jolla phone and will test it once I get it. In the worst case I can send it back within 14 days. The community is great, though.

Many of the jolla harbour apps are also listed in https://openrepos.net you can get a good idea what is available for SFOS. Do you have any particular applications that you are interested?

@voilepoisson: Great to hear. I'm pretty sure you'll be happy with available apps :-) If you need something specific or have questions, talk.maemo.org is also a good place.

This has been asked already several times (see also for example here: https://together.jolla.com/question/93519/store-webinterface-to-see-available-apps/?sort=votes&page=1#93528). To my knowledge, nobody has created such a list and there's no web version.

Warehouse (Openrepos.net) is an alternative, unofficial store and can't be compared with the official one. Some apps (alpha/beta versions, patches/hacks/customization, ones with deeper system access) are only available at Openrespos, other only in Jolla Store.

In my opinion there's already a great selection of apps available in official store/openrepos combined - I barely need any Android apps installed (only for example local train ticket app, Skype, complex language study app). If you have specific questions please ask, I can have a look in the store :-)

Nicely put @caprico. I was writing a similar reply and I also was going to say, that to my limited knowledge, this isn't possible - yet. After playing with SSU commands and seeing a list of URL's for Jolla Store/repos, I tried a few of the URL's (not expecting to get any where) and each one results in a 'forbidden' notice or a log in is required, presumably that of a Jolla employee. I don't even have the Dalvik layer enabled on my device, but then I really only text and make calls. I spend more time 'fiddling' with the phone than I do using it.

Thanks Markkyboy - especially for actually trying to access those URL's. I use Jolla as my daily device since late 2013 and I'm happy I could replace most Android apps with native Sailfish ones by now. Actually I miss many of those neat Sailfish apps on my old Android tablet PC ;-D

A new Jolla user should be aware though, that Jolla's app catalogue can't be compared to the famous "big ones". While Android support works in most cases flawlessly (esp. since SFOS 2.0) it's not an Android phone and one has to expect that some applications may not work (I think there are some issues with Android apps that connect to other WLAN-devices).
