Thank you for answering.
But let me ask a following question because I do not use Android.
The web-addresses of the exemplary applications are beginning with " 
play.google.com/store/apps/ ". As far as I know, this is the web-address 
of the Google Play Store and someone must have Google Play installed 
already to get access to it.

The reason for my astonishment is that I have the impression somehow 
that Sugarizer OS or even Sugarizer is not bound to the goals of the 
Free Software Foundation (FSF) and comparable open source movements anymore.

Nevertheless, it is an interesting work.
