Hello people , I cant receive any other android app via other phones on bluetooh. I also tried using many apps like Shareit , Softwaredata cable , Zapya but none of them worked out as i was unable to find my phone on wifi. Any help will be apprieciated. Also i am unable to play many games due to lack of google framework services . Would anyone help me regarding this ? Thanks !

That seems to be a very difficult job for me as i am very new to sailfish ! That process i think is out of my reach as i have never used programming . Could you help in some other way ? Also can you tell me the answer to my first / ? Thanks !

I just transfered an .apk from a desktop to my Jolla. Works just fine. Perhaps the problem is the source device, which might deny you to transfer .apk's.

not from a desktop but i was talking from one phone to my jolla. It says “Oops the the files could not be received ”.

@Parth SK Tank I'm not technical but as far as I can understand, there is an issue with Bluetooth, Android and Jolla in that the Jolla Android layer is limited to version 4.1.2 and this has implications for Android Bluetooth workability....

Sailfish is like iOS, it uses a different store and different apps compared to Android. It will run Android apps but you'll get the best experience with Sailfish apps.

this isnt the answer to my question ! This is the thing i already know . If you want to hhelp then you are always welcomed but dont answer wrongly .

I didn't answer wrongly. My point is you should have known what you were getting yourself into when you bought the phone.

Sorry bro but no one in this world would not be so stupid to use his 250$ and buy a jolla phone instead of having many options such as ios / android / blackberry/ windows. If you would help with the answer it would be great . No offtopic discussion please !
