I can download/install foursquare app from yandex but when I run it, it tells me that phone is not authorized or something (sorry I haven't managed to test recently so don't remember the exact error). I'm guessing some of the plans didn't quite work out (yet): http://techcrunch.com/2013/03/03/jolla-ceo-interview/ ?

Foursquare is one of my main uses for a smartphone so its a bit disappointing that i can use that any more. :(

There is a native app available in OpenRepos: https://openrepos.net/content/xmlich02/foursail

Looks like @xmlich02 is working on a native Sailfish foursquare application.

The first version was submitted to harbour QA. The source codes are at https://gitorious.org/foursail/foursail/ . Feel free to contribute.

App was rejected from harbour for now. The RPMs are available at https://openrepos.net/content/xmlich02/foursail

Works flawlessly for me. Installed Google play and some Google programs. Some of them installed "GServices", which probarly helped foursquare to work.

Where did you install Google play from? I don't see it in yandex nor jolla store.

http://www.jollatides.com/2013/11/29/jolla-how-to-access-google-play/ There's a little typo in the guide. Change

  • rsync -av –ignore-existing /home/nemo/system /opt/alien into
  • rsync -av --ignore-existing /home/nemo/system /opt/alien

It also seems that Google services are installed there.

Thanks though I got no idea on how to execute the last two steps:

  1. Install Google Play services to Jolla
  2. Install Google Play Store to Jolla

Ah nm last comment. Found the answer here: http://elinux.org/Jolla#Where_do_I_put_.apk_files

Now they are installed but they don't work. :( When I launch them, the window comes up but then it disapears, w/o any errors what so ever.
