    Support for Swype or similar keyboard.

    If you support this I would recommend a +1 to this thread at their official forum.

    Some way (apps or protocol) to deport screen display on a larger screen or TV as there's no HDMI port. Could be a Miracast compatibility or something else.

    @BaffTech - not (quite) the same thing as I suspect you're after a full TV-out like the N900 had (God I love that phone), but as a partial version: the Android app iMediashare/Flipps does work (tested this morning and perfectly stable on a Samsung Smart TV). Though hopefully a full TV-out becomes an option in future through the data port.

    Was looking for "Mireo Don't panic" but didn't manage to find it on the stores I have installed. Will get a try for navfree then - thanks for the tip.

    This is not really a "request" but I would like to see the "Phone screen" a bit different. At the moment you get a list of the latest calls and sometimes inadvertently push an entry and make a call. I would prefer a pop-up to say "call" instead of simply dialing after a tap. I sometimes end up calling when I just want to close the phone screen. The case with the SMS screen is a bit similar. The layout is a bit confusing with the old message and the (possible) reply on the same screen...

    i'm trouble with video camerawhen i make a video i can't choose resolution (HD high, WVGA medium, VGA low)video camera is sets to HD then if a make some videos these will be very large and i cannot share with email or fb and format files are always in mp4 i think should be better if i can choose the file format 3gp or mp4 because a mp4 video of 40sec is 50Mb and same video in 3gp is 7Mb, and last one is best for sharing away without problem - phone has 14Gb so we can store many videos here and there isn't an option to save videos/photos directly in SD card).....we'd appreciate some fixes - See more at: http://www.jollatides.com/forums/discussion/101/video-maker#Item_3

    Download manager needs to be better implemented.

    For example, if I set aptoide to download an android app and then leave the phone, it seems to time-out and I need to go back into aptoide, find the same app and hit install again so it can resume installing.

    A better download manager would make this process seamless.

    It seems to me that NFC could drain your batteries? Perhaps there should be way to turn it off. What you think?

    IMAP Idle would be nice ... at least as an option for mail...
    PBAP support would be a nice addition in the future (dialling numbers is annoying)

    I'd like to see an option to differntiate between haptic feedback for the keyboard and the pulley menu... also maybe an option for the amount of feedback...

    it seems like the phone is picking up mobile networks way quicker than my motorola razr (i.e. when i'm leaving the garage) ... i wonder if this is a trick by big companies to reduce battery usage by reducing the frequency of checking for network signal... maybe an option for that could be implemented (more or less frequently)

    Following on from @egnat, I would really like to be able to turn keyboard haptics off (differentiate from pulley menu) and allow some nice keyboard sounds in place of haptics as I generally find haptics in an onscreen keyboard puts me off typing and prefer an aural indication. Having more options here would be great.

  • JollaTidesJollaTides
    668.00 KarmaPosts: 526Captain
    This is a big feature I would really love:

    When viewing homescreen (multi tasking view), you have to your left ambience options and to your right the same ambience options!? This seems counter intuitive as for me I'm just as happy going to the 'gallery' to set my ambience there (which would only be occasionally at that).

    Now what I would prefer in those 2 screens either side of the home screen is to be able to set custom apps to be displayed in there. For example, to the right I would love the 'messaging app', and to the left probably the email app. But you could also have the option to maybe put the browser in one of those areas etc etc.

    This would be amazing if it was possible IMO!
  • JollaTidesJollaTides
    668.00 KarmaPosts: 526Captain
    Another big improvement which could be made:

    Furthermore, the very top display or lock screen which shows eg. static notifications/time/connectivity icons.

    This needs something like a weather summary and also the notification icons (to the left) need to be interactive ie. either displaying some more information, or touch one to go directly to the message from the lock screen.

    Adding a camera icon (or some other custom icon) to the right of the time at the bottom of the lock screen with a quick link would also be great.

    The lock screen needs finely tuning with more interaction IMO.

    Any chance of porting the N9 Contacts, calender and address book to Jolla? For the most part these work better, with the exception of the Exchange sync which is great on Jolla. On the other hand, Jolla mail and network connectivity work better than on the N9. Jolla jumps so smoothly between my 3G provider and known WLANs that I don't even notice.

    Just a few comments:
    Phone: I miss the various last calls views from the N9. Also, dialing straight away from the calls list is embarrassing. It should at least be configurable to require an extra tip to actually dial. Also, I can't seem to jump to the contact card from the calls list.
    Contacts: Am I correct in assuming that contacts uses multiple address books internally? I have downloaded all my contacts from Zarafa using the Exchange sync but these aren't visible in my car infotainment system when I link up over bluetooth . Can you add a way to either select current primary address book or to copy from one address book to another: i tried syncing my N9 contacts to Jolla but this somehow screwed up the entire Jolla contacts installation and only showed one single entry in the car infotainment system.
    Calendar: At a very minimum, a pulley item allowing you to jump to a random date. As a proposal, the pulley item shows a menu where you can pull or type year and month, much like many credit card expiration date entry masks on webshops.
    Also, a better display of elements imported from outlook, ability to edit or add notes to calender entries etc. i.e. as N9 like as possible
    Connectivity: I can just plug an N9 into a Linux laptop (SuSE 11.3) over USB and use this as a modem. Couldn't get this working at all with Jolla. Windows is just as bad which I need for my VPN access. It would of course be better if this all worked over bluetooth.
    Maps: It's great that you use Nokia here, but I don't see any way to log into my here account and access my collections.

    Summary. Jolla is a good beta but I won't be retiring my N9 for a while.

    Another thing i came across that would add some usability (at least for me):

    add connectivity options to ambience so we can have a car-ambience that automatically activates BT or a home-ambience that activates WiFi ...

    also missing from other phones is the possibility to type in the name via number keys in the phone-app (1 for abc, 2 for def,...) to quickly find contacts... not a priority though...

    I would also like to have proper caldav support & carddav + imap idle support as well (there isn't now even for contacts, since they sync only in one way)

    Other than those.. Would be great to have two steps in screen "sleeping mode", with adjustable time frame => When screen goes black and you double tap screen before time is up, the phone would wake in exactly same position it was, with the same application on fullscreen that there was. If you would double tap after time is up, the behavior would be like it is now. Sure this two step behavior would be an option, not forced.

    I don't know you, but I've frustrated some times with current behavior. If you read something and especially if you get interrupted, it is frustrating to double tap, open lockscreen, select app which was open and then continue.. And if this happens with camera.. You are waiting for exactly right moment and screen goes black... At leats what I suggested would help a bit for those situations.

    I definitely want to access the full directory listing of my phone with my USB cable this should not be a problem, since it is my phone. I want to be able to break it if I want to. I did not buy a linux phone so that I could be locked out of my own phone and not tweak it and hack it the way I please.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMAP_IDLE

    The IDLE feature allows IMAP e-mail users to immediately receive any mailbox changes without having to undertake any action such as clicking on a refresh button, or having the e-mail client automatically and repeatedly ask the server for new messages.


    One other thing that would be nice to have in Sailfish is flashlight option in pulley menu, above camera. There could also be flashlight in pulley menu when recording videos.

    I started to use keepass to create safe passwords for all my logins - works really nice for windows, ios and android. As it is really hard to type those passwords manually from my laptops screen to my jolla when creating accounts or logging in to some site, i'd love to see a sailfish impementation of keepass.

    A feature I really miss from my N9 is the flickr plugin. I use that quite often, to upload pictures I've taken to my flickr account, so this is a highly requested feature for me.
