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.

I really want the standard basic cellular features first - like MMS, 3g Video calling etc. And second, fine grained permissions controls to decide what an app can do on my Jolla (like connect to the internet, access to contacts or jolla accounts etc).

Of course it would be great to have some features such as do not disturb, a better notifications page, a better email UI, ans so on, but generally I think what Jolla really needs is still a more fluid and reliable daily use. It should be really faster on day to day actions, such as opening settings and apps. I'm using Jolla as my second phone with my corporate number. To tell the truth, I still don't feel 100% about changing it to my primary smartphone.

Pulley menu is great, but they also should check when it is really the best option. Having a 'send' option on email on pully menu, in this case, is not intuitive at all, for example.

The ability to sort your song in the media app by added date.

It's now terribly to find your new songs in the media app if you have a big musiclibrary...

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.
