Dear @jolla team My Jolla Phone is Running Sailfish OS, I like the Style of Jolla more than Symbion and unfortunately i didn't use MeeGo. Sequence Os updates from JOLLA and the community made me happy with Jolla 2.0.

But the sorrow is still Users like me are suffering from common and Basic Mobile operations from J0lla like...

  1. How to select and send more than one pic from Gallery? Gallery is not looks good still and no much options to do extra.
  2. No proper time in missed call logs
  3. only few days call logs available(eg:6days)
  4. How to create Groups in Phone book?
  5. How to customize Ringtone on specific contact?
  6. No flash Message and similes on txt messages
  7. How to send audio/mp3 songs from music player via Bluetooth/Wifi
  8. Share IT android app is not working
  9. Few Netbanking/online transaction Apps also not working (eg.ICICI store)
  10. Editing the Phone numbers and Name in existing contact is not working
  11. No search options are available in "messages"
  12. How to select multiple messages and Delete at a time?
  13. Night mode, Sport mode and sequence photo capturing options is not available in Camera.
  14. Still lots of android Apps not working (eg: Aptoide, Yandex store, clap to find, Share It, teamviewer, MX player)
  15. No Display Reminder tones on Calendar Events
  16. Couldn't copy paste more than one files from "File browser".

Hoping for the Best in coming Days

You can do multi-file operations in File Manager. Select multiple files by tapping the icon next to the filename, not the filename itself.

As for the rest, well, I do not use Android but I have to agree with most of the rest. If you do a little search you will find that others agree with you too as most of your requests already have their own threads. Sadly, very few have been implemented but for some there is a community patch.

Please make use of the search function, 1-7, 11-15 should be rather easy to find. 8+9 Specific android apps you might want to split out in their own questions if you cannot find one already. 10 known issue for contacts synced from external services. 16 Jolla does not provide a filebrowser, best I know so far is CargoDock.

  1. for example is found by a search for multiple
  2. is another one from '13 and found by a search for call log (first item)

Contribute to those existing or open new questions for new items, please. Closing as non-relevant.

Just so you know, most of the limitations of Jolla's own apps are here from the beginning (2013) so you will find very old entries for most of them.

@chemist Not a real question? I see here a lot of questions. I think this is not the right way to handle a Jolla/Sailfish user. I think his questions are very clear. Jolla should invest more time in basic native apps and if you say you support Android apps, then it most be 100%, because that is what users expected. So for me very clear questions that most be answered by Jolla. If not, why we have this platform?

About my reaction above, maybe it sounds a little hard, sorry for that. The message is clear :-).

@richdb and at what point do I tell him off? No offense taken... This is a collection of things already mentioned, with the first two provided as an example with search pattern in my answer... everybody is invited to contribute but opening questions with lists of things already voted on for 2 years does not help anyone of them. So the only valid points are those 3 (teamviewer is known) android apps and those should be reported as bugs and not as wishlist items, right? So maybe it is better tagged/closed as duplicate with >80% of the question being duplicates?
