Would be nice to have these stores on sailfish. They're both FOSS afaik.

You can install the fdroid store app. Just download the apk from their website.

I'm pretty sure Yandex are paying Jolla to have their store pre-installed, I can't think of any other reason it's there and not any others. I'm fine with that, Jolla has to stay in business and we're all free to install apks from anywhere we like. If somebody wants fdroid in harbour I guess that they would just have to go through the submission process. If you feel strongly about it, get on it.

I know, but it would be nice, if jolla would support it, as they do with yandex

What do you mean by 'support it'? Be able to download it from the Jolla store?

Just install the .apk as stevexley says... we probably want to encourage Jolla to work on native things rather than adding more Android stores/applications/etc..

Aptoide can be installed manually in a similar manner as f-droid. (At least, I had it installed at some time without problems, at least no problems during installation.)
