Bangalore: Sailfish, a new mobile operating system is posing grave challenge to the monopoly of Android and iOS. The OS developed by a group of engineers from Nokia have introduced their platform into the new Jolla phones. Sailfish is primarily a gesture based mobile platform based on the Nokia’s Meego, a Linux-based free mobile operating system project, which didn’t take off. Here are the powers punches that the new rival for Android and iOS packs as listed by Times Of India.



#6 Multitasking first



The new OS gives priority to the applications that are currently running and displays them on the home screen rather than the bunch of widgets and apps that overwhelmthe display. The multi-tasking menu of Sailfish is similar to BlackBerry 10 OS with small square windows for each app. Right below the list of currently running apps, one can get the quick access to Dialer, Messaging, Browser and Camera.
