What features do you desperately need?

This is a list of missing features that we desperately need, sorted by votes. Feel free to add more, but only with a proper link to a question, so we can also vote on specific questions.

The Jolla crew uses the tag roadmap to show requested features forming part of a defined plan. There is also a general roadmap and a development roadmap.

Note: The numbers in parantheses {xxx} at the front are the votes each question had collected. If it has an -R after the number it indicates the roadmap tag is present, a -r? indicates the Jolla crew responded positively to the question but the roadmap tag is not present.

EDIT: Automatically updating list here, and the features tracked by Jolla here. As we already have these options via search, there's no need to update the list below. Return to default view here, or manually by removing the filter(s) and sorting questions by activity instead of votes.

EDIT2: There's a similar way to do that for bugs. Requested fixes here, those under work here

EDIT3: Just for fun, here's a list of bug requests ;) (let's work together to remove either of the tags on these)

Last time fully updated on 29 June 2015.

Let's try to keep this updated, at least after each Sailfish release!

Voicemail notification for all operators (not working for some operators like Free Mobile in France)

  1. Voice dialing
  2. Better email client (too many bugs here) ( 2014-02-12 19:51:04 +0300 )edit

While not a roadmap feature, additional keyboard layouts (official that is) is what i'd like to see.

SailFishOS/Firmware updates that don't require the user to open a Jolla account.

  1. Less restrictions for harbour-apps
  2. Better user control over apps access to hardware/data
  3. More API documentation, so things that aren't done by Jolla can be done by others, together with 1, several points on the list could be done by the community.

Native implementation of Textsecure and Redphone. There is a lot of interest about this topic: 175, (131, 120, 88, 45) votes

For me one of the most important features still missing is a secure messaging possibility with convenient usability, meaning:

Secure: Open source, designed by a well known crypto expert and possibly recommended by independent crypto experts.

Usability: Apps for Android and IOS, PC therefore a big user base or at least an easy way for friends to use it. Easy installation on Sailfish OS.

In my opinion this is currently best fulfilled by TextSecure ( The problem is that there is no native support for Sailfish OS, there was an app in development but it sadly was dismissed (more on this). I spend hours on trying to get the Android app working -- learned how to build it, followed guides on how to install Google Services and Google Play Store -- but I just don't get there. I always end up with a constantly crashing Play Store and TextSecure crashing at the key generation.

Since Jolla is heavily advertising with security and privacy I think there should be at least one decent native (build in or Harbor app) way for secure communication.

I am aware of the recent collaboration announcement with SSH Communications Security, but this seems to aim at a different goal.

So please do something in the direction of TextSecure messaging and maybe also RedPhone.

Edit1: TextSecure is now @ Harbour as a patched google freed apk!

-Updated numbers

Is there a particular reason not to add the request for open whispersystem apps to the wanted feature list?

Edit2: Moved the request and links to the title.

Make the choice available between a point or a comma in the NumPad. Some apps call the NumPad, and need a point as a decimal separator, but my NumPad only shows a comma ...

Btrfs optimization improvement (any B plan?)

Just a personal recent experience: after 1 year on Jolla1, starting from SFOS 2.0, I'm now going to restore it because 1 day ago, SUDDENLY, my J1 got unstable, no more free space (while it was 54% used).. No more power on for minutes.. The long time to power on.. Then unstable.. Then no possibility to make a backup.. Then no possibility to instal Developer Mode.. No more repos.. No more Ambiences.. UI destroyed.. No possibility to chance any setting.

Then I entered Safe-Mode from Windows (Thanks to Dax), made a btrfs balance: J1 powered on quickly.. Data was ok, but.. No more repos.. No possibility to install Developer Mode.. UI destroyed..

During the night it was always on.

Login to Here maps to access existing POI's

edit flag offensive delete publish link more



I'd like to have POIs, but I don't like the need to use yet another account at yet another service just to manage my POIs. On the N9, POIs are stored in a SQLite database, which at least provides the option to manage them on device. An official API to do so would be preferable. Importing and exporting or syncing POIs and tracks with other services could then be made by the community.

I like your idea Fuzzilogic. I thought that the login to Here maps would be an easy way to "activate" POI sync before trying out fancier ways.

Please keep the discussion in the relevant question so others can comment if needed. Any way, the link has been added to the list.
