I remember reading that Android support (aleindalvik) is licensed and is available only for Jolla phones.

The ltest OS version is (Vaarainjarvi) not, which is one of the oldest versions. Update to from Settings > SailfosOS updates, and I'm sure you'll find all you need in the Store.

Edit: see this to fix the Store/update problems:

There was a server side issue which prevented the OS updates and several applications from showing up on fresh devices. Unfortunately it was not visible in our normal testing and was not discovered until now.

The good news is that the issue has been fixed and things should work again also on those out-of-the-box devices that are still around.
