Hello guys , i am just getting the hang around sailfish and so tried to install android apps. I found out that the Miniclip 8 Ball Pool which is very popular on android gets installed on my Jolla but then crashes every time i try to open it . Any help would be greatly appreciated ! Thankyou !!

Some may think I'm paranoid, but I 'd like to add that you should avoid apps that refuse to work when Google Services aren't running: this is clearly a malware indicator (user tracking, consumer profiling, targeted advertising). In other words, the kind of annoyances we are not supposed to encounter with an 'unlike' device. If you have no problem with those, just buy a pure Android phone: it's convenient, it's cheap (you pay one half of the phone, marketing agencies pay the rest).

If you would have thought about answering the question that would be great . All the sailors here are using some or the other android app with Jolls due to the lack of the native apps , so your advice to stay away from Google apps is probably useless . But thanks for replying .

I didn't say all android apps should be avoided: only those with undesirable code inside, for example rules that crash the app if and when irrelevant geo-localization isn't active or Google service isn't running. Of course I am using some Android apps when no native equivalent is available.

OK. I downloaded it (from Aptoide), and installed it. It says it requires access to the protected system memory, to my accounts, to my geographic position and so on. I tested it briefly: it's running. Now I am uninstalling it, as there is no reason (IMHO) to allow its excessive requirements. Running Ilyaavanlampi. Maybe your device is running out of on-board memory? Hope it may help.

It's really hard to tell what's causing it in this case, but I just have to say that some Android apps just don't work on Jolla. Jolla is using an Android compatibility layer; it's not "official" Android certified by Google. Some apps don't work because they use Google services that are not available on Jolla.

i have some users telling me that 8 ball pool runs flawlessly in their Jolla but it is not running in my Jolla and so i am worried about it . If anyone could try installing Miniclip 8 ball pool and tell me results would be apprieciated. Thanks for answering @ssahla

I tried it and it works (at least the tutorial). I have latest Sailfish version and Google Play and Services installed.
