Jolla recently started the alpha testing of its Jolla Launcher for Android. Jolla Launcher provides the users with a Sailfish OS like experience on their Android devices. Now because it is just a launcher and not the whole OS, it only provides access to the lockscreen, multitasking view, pulley menu and the app grid. The launcher also changes a few icons from the app grid and replaces them with the original icons from Sailfish to give a more Sailfish-like UI.
