Jolla launcher is for Jolla phones as a part of Sailfish UI, but company recently ran a program where some alpha testers were given Jolla Launcher For Android to test on their devices and later the launcher was made available on Play Store for Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 users. Unfortunately it is not yet available for other device users.

We tested Sailfish Jolla Launcher For Android on our Xperia Z1 running on android 4.4.4 and it works great. XDA user riyono has ported successfully launcher for all android users running android 4.2+ above. It doesn’t require root. Download Sailfish Jolla Launcher For Android apk from below and install like normal apk.

It is kind of bit confusing navigation through this launcher though it is kind of unique launcher in terms of UI.
