Miataru for SailfishOS and Jolla

A couple of months after Daniel came up with Miataru, I finally extendet the Miataruniverse with a native SailfishOS app.

What’s all About

After Google Latitude went down, he was looking for a new solution how to exchange location information with others. Basically, Miataru let you know where other devices are. That’s all. With an unique identifier, the device submits its location on a regular base. If you know the device identifier, you can show the location on your map.

The Jolla App

Beside native apps, Jolla can run Android apps from Google play. Anyway, native apps  simply look much better. As the SailfishOS SDK is still in its alpha, its quite an adventure to develop for it.

Where to get it

Despite all issues, we just pushed the very first version of the Miataru for SailfishOS on OpenRepos. From there, you can install and updating it using Warehouse for SailfishOS.

Early Alpha

The version available is an early alpha, with very limited functionality. It is basically intended to test the communication between the app and Miataru server as well as the OpenRepos setup. Also due to limitations in the current version of the SailfishOS SDK, the positioning functionality is not yet supported.

Updates will be released on OpenRepos based on the further progress of the SailfishOS SDK. News about the releases will be published here.
