Jolla Launcher Alpha ported to Android 4.2 devices

Jolla has started the alpha testing of its Jolla Launcher for Android, available only for a selected few alpha testers. Of course, this being Android, there is very little to stop more arduous users from taking it and making it available for a wider public, just as what one XDA member did for anyone who owns an Android device version 4.2 or higher.
