AppSupport for Linux Platforms gives any embedded Linux-compatible platform capability to run Android apps. The apps can be run on wide variety of devices like smartphones, tablets, automotive solutions, wearables, and they can be flexibly adapted to many other embedded devices and use cases. The application performance and user experience on Jolla’s solution is on par with native Android OS.

 AppSupport is managed and developed by Finnish company Jolla Ltd.

 

Solution for Various Industries

 

Jolla’s AppSupport lets Linux-based platforms keep full control of their internal feature development and innovation roadmaps. With this, the innovation and user experience can differentiate and exceed the performance and efficiency of competing solutions. Jolla’s solution is not using Android Homescreen UI, but is integrated with the native system UX.

Jolla’s solution supports custom partner app stores, and it can be utilized in various environments, including e.g., the automotive sector and the transportation industry more widely.

Validated and
Productized Technology

 

Jolla Ltd. is recognized worldwide as a provider and licensor of alternative mobile operating system Sailfish OS. While the primary focus of Sailfish OS is to enable the development of native Linux applications, it was deemed necessary to support also existing key apps, such as WhatsApp, WeChat, Slack and Office. The AppSupport for Linux Platforms software enables applications natively developed for Android OS to run on non-Android-based systems like Sailfish OS. The solution is still fully isolated from the rest of the Sailfish OS code.

The support for Android Apps has been available on most of the devices Jolla Ltd. or its partners have made available since 2013.

Fully Compatible

 

AppSupport for Linux Platforms currently supports Android version 10 without lock-in to 3rd party proprietary services​. The Android application performance and user experience on Jolla’s solution is on par with native Android OS.

Tailor to Your Needs

 

The system can be deployed with the application set optimized for the purpose. Selected applications can either be pre-installed or downloaded from online sources (3rd party app stores, limited corporate app catalogue, OS-specific repositories, etc.) depending on the customer needs and security requirements.

​The software and the experience can be fully customized and optimized as preferred. The licensee fully controls Android Apps and system services availability and behavior, i.e. every integration point between AppSupport and native OS is in your own control.
