... many features from universal search / copy-paste masks, multiple VKB dictionaries to integrated social networking (such flickr, IM, etc.) have been proven very well and are still missing somehow in Sailfish. Of course native skype might be a bit so-so by nowadays ( being part of MS ) but as new approaches such as Jitsi emerge they could do very well for replacement ... and better preserve your privacy.

Jitsi Integration

... not quite a port but as an alternative & good remembrance of the handy Skype-out-of-the-box implementation.

Universal search / copy-paste masks / functionality

Advanced VKB

... discussed already several times, enhanced functionality as multiple dictionaries, control of individual cache entries, synonym thesauruses, connectivity to online dictionaries, syntax check, ... even facilitated Bluetooth KB connection might be helpful & desirable to have integrated into the VKB.

Formerly known at last since the N900 due to its very comfortable multiple-dictionary functionality, this should be enhanced.

Why don't you post a subject by question? It should be more useful to follow votes, answer, ... no?

Sorry, but 1 question per topic is our expectation, polling is not valuable as such, I may haven't been clear enough on your initial attempt, plus your approach is not appropriate as it's a way to harvest karma, which is definitely not what users expect to see.

Please see: https://together.jolla.com/question/4389/together-howto-question-answer-and-comment/ thanks.

Alarmingly sobering response. I think that was it with my enthusiasm for a constructive jolla-"togetherness" ... getting my jolla sunk in the lake tonight. Unorganized forum.

@launchpad: sorry to hear you're disappointed and the given pointers to how data is organized here not reaching out...

... @eric not believing you ---> by the way I did a "wiki"-toipic as you proposed .... and obviously you cannot harvest any karma, as stated below any contribution when checking "wiki" befor posting it ....

@launchpad: Please note that ALL answers related to your question must be posted as community wiki, which was not the case. We're still discussing how we can use a proper polling mechanism, please comment here: https://together.jolla.com/question/16697/ Thanks!
