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 +0200 )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.

Clock alarm sound should be volume adjustable separately! Also alarm sound should be able to increase slowly from start.

I found this question on this issue:

But does this really belong on this list? I mean, isn't this something for the youunited provider to develop ? Or perhaps an OSS developer?

avdwoude ( 2014-04-22 12:20:00 +0200 )edit

That's a good question. The blogs, tweets or official announcements doesn't say if it is F-Secure or Jolla (maybe both?) who will implement the thing. We'll keep waiting.

Reduce display brightness - follow the link to vote for it if you too use your phone often in the darkness.

Hmm... for the description, I think what you want is 802.1X over wifi.

Couple of ideas:

  1. On Device Voicemail - Instead of using the mobile providers service, the phone answers after configurable length and records the message, as well as a menu to view/play/delete/set greeting .etc. Not sure if best suited for App or native feature in the dialler.
  2. VM Permissions per Android App - Some of us don't trust Google, or other App Providers and a way to deny access to certain things (messages/contacts/storage/location) on a per app basis would be great, so for instance i can deny my location to facebook, but still use GPS in google maps for navigation

Good ones! Could you provide the links to existing issues, or if they don't exist yet create issues for these first? If I have the links I will add them to the list.

avdwoude ( 2014-08-10 10:59:59 +0200 )edit

I didn't create one for the android permissions because I wasn't sure it was even possible. But now with tahkalampi I think it should be possible

EDIT: quick search finds these:
