    I don't get Firefox 26.0.1 or opera 7.5.33361 working properly (latest version for now). Opera stops working when playing videos and Firefox can't play videos (both at YouTube).

    I heard many times - and an own experiment confirmed that - Skype on Jolla works only in "loudspeaker mode": when you call smbd by Skype (or are called), you just can't use the phone "like a phone". Couldn't find any way to change it, maybe you know?..

    Navfree seems to be working. Well, IMO Nawfree isn't the best navigation app in the world - but it's another story... ;)

    So far I have:
    Yandex Store
    Google Play Store

    Dolphin Browser (Sonar Voice Search doesn't work - says Google Voice not installed - when it is!)
    Quicksquare (Foursquare simple posting app)
    Foursqaure - mostly works - some of the positioning functions don't work *yet!*
    Candy Crush (!)
    AccuWeather
    Google Voice Search
    Kingston Office with PDF
    BBM 1.0.3.87 - though I have an issue where I get no notification sounds or vibration, and it doesn't stay active. If I hit the Droid "back" button in BBM, it disappears.

    So far so Grreeeeat!

    Personally I would avoid updating android apps unless absolutely necessary. I have had mixed success updating android apps. The best way, I think is to uninstall the version you don't want and reinstall the latest version. If the new version doesn't work, you can always uninstall and go back to the version you knew worked.

    So far tried the following apps

    Sygic 11.2.6 works
    - I haven't tried navigating to contacts since I haven't got a way to import them. Normal navigation works.

    Sygic Maps downloader works
    - it automagically saw my WIFI lan and was able to download maps

    MyPhone Explorer client (a phone/outlook sync app)
    - starts up but sees all connections as disabled. There's no way to enable them from within MPE. Tried with auto-enable (where is does actually see my WIFI-LAN but from then on the app crashes :-(
    I need a way to reset things to investigate this further.

    Bejeweled 2
    - Works

    DRWAPS (Don't Run With A Plasma Sword)
    - Works

    Nova Launcher v2.2
    - works

    ES File Explorer 1.6
    - seems to work.

    TouchPal Contacts v4.6.1
    - seems to work fine. Haven't tried actually calling with it since I haven't got a sim-card in my Jolla phone (yet).

    Due to problems with MPE I did Factory reset of my Jolla

    AirDroid
    - doesn't see the Wifi connection. It sometimes works through the internet though.

    I noticed that my wifi connection has become very flacky after a factory reset :-(
    My jolla looses connection like hell. This is bad, very bad.

    Update1: MyPhoneexplorer gives "unsupported action"upon startup and bombs out. It doesn't detect Wifi, BT or USB connection mode (it needs USB debugging on Android to work properly).

    Update2: Sygic 11.2.6: If you have contacts on your phone, they get automatically detected for use with the navigation program (POI). Also Touchpal Contacts detects the contacts on the phone. Adding a contact through TP isn't possible (I reckon it doesn't have write access to Jolla's phone-book only read access).

    Zynga Poker is 100% working. it drains the battery though. 3hours of playing drain the battery from 100% to <10%. The Phone gets quite hot too. so somehow there is (too) much CPU used.

    Today I tested Skifta, a DLNA app for Android.
    I tried the following

    Raspberry Pi (XBian XBMC-implementation)
    ------------------------------------

    - from Jolla to RPI
    --> Works perfect. Play's photos, music and video. 16:9 photos are displayed 90 degrees CW.
    --> Jolla phone used as controller: OK

    - from XBian to Jolla
    --> doesn't work at all (an error occurred fetching the media items)


    Windows Media Player 12 (windows 7 32-bits) (WMP is the DLNA component in Windows desktop OS)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    - from Jolla to WMP
    --> Works fine. Plays photos & films (no music tested but it should work too).
    --> Jolla phone used as controller: OK

    - from WMP to Jolla
    --> doesn't work at all (an error occurred fetching the media items)

    Nokia 808PV
    ------------

    - from Nokia to Jolla
    --> Videos (XVid) are displayed in Jolla's webbrowser
    --> Music is played through Skifta itself.
    --> Photos are displayed through Skifta itself
    --> Jolla Phone to browse the 808PV: OK

    - From jolla to Nokia
    !!! the Nokia play-to DLNA-service only allows server usage not player-usage. As the name o/t product already said it all "play TO" not "play FROM".

    So far from Jolla TO DLNA devices seems to work fine. You can even use the Jolla phone as the controller (remote) to choose what media you want to play. The exception is Symbian (Nokia Play-To) which works perfectly as advertised with your Jolla phone as the receiver.

    It's not a native solution but at least it works.

    regards,

    Manu T

    Update 3.

    After the latest (31/01/2014) Jolla update to 1.0.3.38 Sygic isn't able to navigate to contacts anymore.

    Contacts get imported as POI's but the app doesn't see any address anymore. Though they are there and "I" see them?!?!?

    Neither the addresses that I imported as VCF-files (about 700 of them which all had wrong characters in their country name) nor the ones that I input myself on the phone which had the right address nor the VCF-imported ones that I corrected.

    Sygic on Android works fine.

    Damn!

    we definitlely need a native offline navigation solution because this Android shit is flacky as hell. With every update something gets broken. :-(

    I've just got the Camranger Android App and it works well with my jolla phone. It will be very nice if it also will work with the jolla tablet.
