At the moment my personal experience is that no more than 6 SF application can be running together with android applications at the same time.

Typically it is even less as it depends at which point the android applications have been started.

If they are started as one of the first ones then they typically stay on at Home screen until user tries to activate and use them, causing the android application to close. Restarting with 4 to 6 SF application will cause immendiate closing after the application startup.

Is this a bug or feature?

If it is feature, what are the maximum number of active applications both native SF and Android that Jolla can handle?

This happened to me several times: I have 6 native apps opened and try to open an android app, it tries to open and closes (tried with different android apps). What I did: close all native apps and opening the android app and it opens normally.

It will all depend on how much memory the applications use.

If you have developer mode installed you may examine memory use from the terminal using the usual commands. Starting "top" and then pressing "F" to select field to sort by and selecting one of the memory fields should get you started.

If an application uses an excessive amount of memory try to get in touch with the developer and provide as much information as you can.

(community wiki, add your memory debugging tips)
