Thanks for the latest update of SFOS and thanks for the new top menu accessible from anywhere. I always used a patch for that before, now it's built in. However, I have some suggestions for improvement:

  1. I love the smaller ambience buttons, but I'd like to have them below all the other menu items as before (maybe you can make that configurable?).
  2. I'd love to be able to remove the lock button, as I don't need it and it would give me more space for other elements (maybe you can make that configurable?).
  3. I'd like to be able to remove the text below the buttons. It's not needed and it would free even more space (maybe you can make that configurable?).
  4. I'd like to be able to remove the settings button in the lower right (maybe you can make that configurable?). A long press could enable organising mode (as before) and the general top menu settings are available through system settings.

I could continue, but those are the 4 most "important" improvement suggestions from me. Thanks for listening.

With one addition: make it possibile to add all settings into the top menu as was possible in the event screen settings.

Lock button in top menu (yes vor not) should be configurable.

Yeah. Sorry. I ment that, but did not explicitly say so. I'll edit the question.

Yes, I agree especially on points 1, 2 and 4. But how to put ambiances between top menu and lock button? I think what's broking here is that lack of uniformity... the lock button should be consistent with the ambiance position (lock button as a square with ambiances now, or ambiances as before, or the two solutions as a choice in configuration).

I agree with all you said and all of it should be customizable. My wife's Jolla C has a barely functioning power button, so the lock icon on the top menu is essential.

I just had an idea: Why not add a "Alt-Tab" shortcut icon to the top menu to quickly switch to last used (minimized, still running) program? The top menu is already accessibly from within any app...

But those are always accessible by a right swipe from anywhere. And: as far as I remember on MWC Jolla presented a special gesture in SFOS3 to switch between recent apps. Can't really recall how, but someone here on TJC already asked for it. Will give the link to it, if I find it it.

Cool! That seems great. Thank You.
