Hello Sailers! Let the developers know how much you love sailfish. Make a guess and see, how good are u in predicting sailfish development path or how closely you observer sailfish development ?

Admins and developers can stay away.

Let's start with 2.0.5 (yet to be named) ! we can suggest a name also. It's a community driven effort.

Our expectaions are limitless.....but here we will guess what we get.

I would like to see lower power consumption for Intex Aqua Fish. It'll be enough for me. Charging every 2 days is sometime annoying.

Apart from the fact that it's a bit hard reducing power consumption through firmware, you should note that almost all modern smartphones since the Galaxy S2 barely can get through one day of normal usage with a single charge.

And by the way, avoiding to get your battery below 50% will extend its life.

before any new features, plz make the current ones more stable: media player needs continuous playback, native browser freezes every now and then, mobile video on native browser not working on different sites, email is unreadable in portrait mode if long message (shows one char per row only)....

(but im afraid there wont be too many updates ahead...they promised to deliver more regularly but it seems to not happen so im already preparing myself for android. phone/os is neat but its still in its developing stages and not for casual user)

Is the available continuos playback not sufficient? In mediaplayer pull buttondock up and you get buttons for shuffle, add to playlist and repeat. This works for albums and playlist ....

Jolla should stay away from those proprietary services.

Support for AD blocking API that developers can take advantage off, blocking of ADs in APPS and the Browser.

edit flag offensive delete publish link more


I'd see that as improvement for the browser. As of "Ad Block API", you can always simply maintain the hosts file for that.

Bluetooth support to Android apps! E.g. fitness trackers like Fitbit, Ouraring wellness ring. And BT speakers apps e.g. UE Boombox and others.

I'd love some privacy enhancing features:

  1. Definitely support for phone encryption (mainly needs an implementation of cryptsetup during boot, as the rest is already available in the kernel)

  2. Nice to have: more secure way for the phone lock (like scrambling the keys on the PIN unlock screen, so they are in random order)
