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.

USA GSM Bands suppport, octa-core, <4.8in screen, good battery life, android apps support

Some of these already exist as battery life is fair, and Android apps are supported. And hardware issues don't belong to the list IMHO. If you like me to add something to the list, please provide a link to the relevant issue on Together.

we don't need another android power hungry device, there're plenty out there. Jolla has made a different thing, is still a work in progress, but has good points. Battery life is superb, BTW.

I think we need screenshot app included to sailfish & usage like in other OS (power+volume down, or option to choose power up instead depending which button is at top of phone).

Why? I don't see separately screenshot apps as solution, I never keep those open at background all the time, and the time which goes when searching & opening app, you allready took several screenshots by using buttons.

Another nice feature to have would be fast open camera & took pic without showing it first at screen. Like in Huawei Honor devices >> double click on volume down key (when screen is locked , no light) and it tooks pic in ~0,6 -1,2s. After that you can use screen as viewfinder, but at least you got somekind of snapshot before it's too late.
