I observe that Here WeGo in the Jolla Store is now 2 1/2 years old. The latest version in APK Pure, the now recommended Android repository is just under a year old.

a) Maybe Jolla could update it in the Jolla store, to avoid confusion? b) The apkPure version is over 10 months old while the current PlayStore version is from last month an REQUIRES Android 5.x and higher

Is the apkPure version the last version compatible with Android 4.4.x? If not, where might it be obtained?

I recognise that Android is a sore point with everybody, but I prefer Here for driving rather than Pure Maps, if only I could get it to BT to the car I would be content. The fact that it will no longer run on SFOS is really irritating. Hopefully the maps will keep downloading and working into the future.

Aurora Store works very well again! YALP isn't updated anymore, I think...

I downloaded a version of Yelp, but it won't log in - so bugger that.

APK.Gold indicates that the latest version 2.0.13688 is incompatible with 4.4.2 and that the last compatible version was 2.0.12823, which is the version I have from apkPure.

It's still disappointing tat Here WeGo have chosen to require 5.x for their app, probably for no good reason, but it is what it is.

Might as well close this thread.
