Jolla Adds Sailfish SDK Installers For Windows, OS X, Linux To Push More Developers To Build Native Apps For Its MeeGo Platform

Jolla’s plans for Sailfish include licensing the OS to other device makers and creating customised, branded versions of the software for third parties. But it also intends to create its own Jolla-branded phone hardware running Sailfish. Although Sailfish will support Android, Qt and HTML5 apps, Jolla wants native apps to be part of the mix — to fully take advantage of the Sailfish UI features and properly bring the platform to life as it seeks to build a fully fledged ecosystem.
