Sailfish OS, a rival to the popular Android and iOS by former Nokia engineers, has entered the mobile operating system arena with the new Jolla phone.
Unlike the two most popular mobile OSs in the world — iOS and Android — Sailfish is based on the now-defunct Nokia MeeGo operating system and is a gesture-based software that does not rely on hardware keys to navigate the device.
With the first Sailfish smartphone in the market already, here are six cool features of the new OS worth knowing.
For example, you can pause/start or switch music tracks in the media player from the multitasking menu by swiping to the right or left on
Accessing notifications in Sailfish is also similar to what we have seen in iOS 7. You just need to swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open the Notifications Menu. However, unlike other operating systems, you can return to notifications by just swiping from left to right instead of starting from the home screen again.
To access Options in any menu, you just need to swipe down from the top of the screen. Keep dragging the screen down to scroll between various options in any particular app
