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 when you do a survey, please make everything a wiki! change all your answers!

@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...

Big, big room for improvements in this area!

Using the camera sometimes crashes my phone when called for in Android or SFOS apps.

Update Sailfish Browser's rendering engine, either move to newer Gecko, or Qt's WebEngine.

Update Alien Dalvik to a more recent version to ensure future app compatibility. Project Treble may have an impact here.

You really need aliens?

"Projet Treble" will not be useful for this, rather Anbox and maybe Android Go.

My understanding is that Android has moved from Dalvik to ART since 4.4, updates to AD therefore will be marginal.

this is do-able already. use the version which includes the LPM settings - this best (imho) replicates "expected behavior" (coming from Lumia 830, N9, N900)

Works on my AquaFish, the feature is there, it's just buggy/broken on Xperia.

On my SX X it's working without any issue...

Fully support Xperia hardware on the same level of consistency and maturity as the Jolla 1 and C phone.

Integrated To Do List into Calendar app. In fact I like the way it was done in Symbian Belle where you had the choice of Meeting/Anniversary/To Do

Independent volume adjustments for Ring Tone and other alerts like SMS, email etc, or have an alert tone that’s not so loud.

this would be good in the form of a submenu in the sound section of settings
