"Positive News"-time:

I am sure everyone has a bunch of native apps which simply work brilliantly on Sailfish OS and bring out the best of it for whatever reason. Let's share those and praise its devs. Maybe you'll discover a beautiful app you haven't heard of yet, making the daily use of SFOS a greater joy.

@pawel I agree. And wiki style answers for poll like questions for this, IMO.

Filecat - A file manager! Cut, Copy and Paste "multiple files"! (https://openrepos.net/content/llelectronics/filecat) I love this filemanager not only for the possibility to select several files.

Working Hours Tracker - I'd find hard to live without, as I work very irregular hours

Rena - The best GPS logger for my training rounds

NettiRadio - Something to listen when I'm running

JollaOpas - To not to miss the train!

Good to see osm scout is mentioned. Even so functionality of Pure Maps regarding navigation is far ahead. Map view and functions like hill shading still makes it for me, The better app when i'm hiking.

Shellex - one-click script execution. Very handy for me to save typing, for scripts that I use often.

tIde (Openrepos version) - Definitely the best text editor I've found for Sailfish so far. Openrepos version offers root support. In general, smooth and easy to use, with many features. A little slow to load large files, but has the option in settings to disable highlighting for quicker loading.

Filecase - The best we have so far for file manager. I particularly like the excellent search function, and the overall UI and usability is better than the others.

OSM Scout server - Invaluable data-saver, if you use maps regularly.

Sonnensystem: where to find?

@Pohli: Ah, sorry; it's called Solar System in Jolla Store. (I corrected its name in my original post.)

Olsen ( 2019-02-23 11:57:47 +0200 )edit

Thanks for Solar System.

  • SailOTP – for time-based one-time passwords
  • AllRadio – listening to radio stations
  • Fuoten – Nextcloud news reader
  • Books – epub reader
  • ownKeepas – password manager
  • Cargo dock – file manager
  • Pure Maps – maps app
  • podQast – podcast app
  • SaiSync owncloud – Nextcloud syncing
  • Notizen.md – notes app supporting markdown

Actually, I am using XA2 as daily driver without Android support. For now I lack secret messages in Telegram, lack ticket purchasing in public transport and the browser issue… under the bottom line it is nevertheless a satisfying setup. Kudos to all native app devs!
