We all have ideas on what improvements we’d like for Sailfish. I thought it would be useful to have a list in one location that allowed fellow Sailors could vote on individual improvements and also add their own suggestions. This way our friendly developers at Jolla could get a feel for what features Sailors think would make Sailfish a better OS.

Some of the suggestions I have included are probably already in the pipeline. Some may be covered by patches but I think are better included in the base OS.

I have included each suggestion as an answer which can be voted on. If you want to add a suggestion, please add your own answer for others to vote on.

These are in no particular order they’re just as I thought of them and grouped with similar features.

Edit: I didn't realise how many pages this would be :)

Don't forget to look at all the pages, there's 22 suggestions or answers to start with.

Why not use the already existing topic? https://together.jolla.com/question/27207/wiki-which-features-do-you-want-next/

@AlanBreen You're duplicating TJC within TJC. Why on earth would you collect ideas for improvements as answers to to this pseudo-question (and thereby repeating the same stuff all over) when the way to use TJC is to put each of them as a separate question (maybe with the tag "idea") and let people vote for these questions.

sorry to say but since.the.roadmap is not maintained or.published since years a pretty useless effort

and correct: a filter for idea does the same, is easier to find ...

and according to the answers it mixes up missing xperia features, general ideas ...

i think it is a bad idea.

It may not be the correct way to handle such a polling/survey over a question, but close to 1100 views in 12 hours reveals how much consideration such a thread has for the community. If the original topic hasn't been fully updated for more than 2.5 years, then it's probably not worth much either. Rules, structure and form are certainly very important, but the content is IMO even more important, isn't it? I think the SFOS product manager should take a closer look at this subject...

@Moo-Crumpus: What do you mean with has no voice? IMO Poor Maps is providing offline voice support - isn't it?

Also modRana has some (very preliminary, Steven Hawking based :P) navigation voice output as well. :)

it would be nice if 'vibration' feature would be capable to set in every ambience, not just 'only when sounds on' or 'always' or 'never'.

Lock screen sound toggle in settings (c'mon, I shouldn't need to use terminal to change this).

Put/maintain absolute priority and focus on usability, robustness and reliability: Better less functions, but absolutely trustworthy. Better less devices, but in return fully supported and well implemented - not like SX X and the actual delivered IMO poor camera support compared to the original one for example.
