In case you are a Twitter user as well, please help to make this photo collection even bigger.

Video of native Sailfish OS Spotify client

1

Spotify employee Bob Jelica (@b0bben on Twitter) just posted a video of a Sailfish Spotify client which was developed by him and Pär Bohrarper (@rogueops) as a Hackday project. The user interface shown in the video really looks great and could be an example for other, future Sailfish OS apps.

It's not sure though if this app gets ever released - follow Bob Jelica if you want to get the latest update about the project.

It seemed that the Jolla smartphone is being sold in on Taobao.com  (via @fenditsim on Twitter).
