I would like to have more easier acces to information about my jolla and date, time etc. Current setting where you have to pull up to see 3g connection, other connections and battery status is not easy. also on other screens you have to go back to lock screen before you can see vital information.

1.Battery status and 3g connection should be visible all the time on lock screen. No reason to hide it.

  1. Would it be possible to add option to make time, date, battery status and connection status visible on all screens? For example letting this info to stay on corner with small print and ass transparen object. Or by swiping right to left and info comes from side.

I love the way things such as battery status and 3G connection are hidden away to be very conveniently accessed via a minor swipe. It makes for a much cleaner UI! This is obviously highly personal and as always, customization is the key to keeping everyone happy :)

Checking the status by peeking is so easy: it only takes about 0.3 seconds. I love the Jolla way, too.

Date and day-of-week would be highly useful. Network status are also useful (could depend on which part of the world the user is in and the general level of coverage in the area - not so important for good coverage areas but very useful for not-so-good coverage places).

Above comment applies for Peek screen as well - Peek screen has good network status and battery info, but no date and no day-of-week. I think the Peek screen and the Lock screen should simply contain the same info.

In general I agree to have the full screen for the app and offer an easy way to access status info. Anyway, you might want to change some of the infos/settings revealed with a peek operation and this is impossible. E.g. select a different WLAN or mute the phone. This should be one flow. Check, decide to change, continue. This is possible with the notification screen. Peek, see an interesting notification, continue the full way and open the item you want to see. I think the notification screen could have the general status info as well, plus allow to interact with some settings, e.g. select another WLAN or switch to cellular. Just one central place for all this, same shortcut from everywhere. I opened a suggestion to improve WLAN selection accessibility here: https://together.jolla.com/question/41666/ui-improvement-wlan-selection/ Actually @pilq suggested to use the notification area for this and I think it's a good idea.

Instead of pulling on the lock screen you can simply touch it. This makes the lock screen move up a tiny bit to reveal the connection status.

It think it would be nice to imprive the lock screen and peek with more information. Date is most missed by me. Furthermore it woeld be nice to have appointments and timers on the lockscreen.

this is not an answer but a comment, you should probably change it. Updates 6 and 7 will introduce a bit of lockscreen customisation, as stated here: https://together.jolla.com/question/42859/may-update/
