after 2 months using my jolla device I think Ambiences are a totally wasted feature: The idea behind the ambiences is really cool. It's impressive how the apps are affected by the ambience change, backgrounds, fonts, eveything...

The problem is with the settings changed affected by the affected. ATM only sounds effects and sound level can be affected by the ambiences.

I think It would be great to use ambience as a profile and allow the users create their custom profiles with more settings like the options via settings front page.

In my daily usage I have the settings app always minimized to quickly enable/disable WIFI, Internet connecton, bluetooth, GPS, etc:

  • At work: all off
  • home: wifi on, BT on
  • walking: BT on, GPS on

Mainly the idea is have sets of configurations accesible via ambiences.

I don't know if it's possible to extend ambience functionality with a third-party app. I will research it after I finish creating the Telegram client for Sailfish.

I think your question is related to this one.

And you should search something like "profilematic" to find good threads.

OK, no problem. So I close your question if you agree with that.

I'd say this is, more or less, a duplicate of numerous questions/suggestions already present.

To give you a pointer that this already seems to be in the works, see
@Jaakko Roppola's answer over at "Screenborder swipe": (excerpt below)

In the long run, Ambiences are intended to be setting umbrellas, where switching between your favorite ambiences would disable and enable a user specified set of system settings. This is just another way of offering you a way to control your device radios and features with the added bon, us of seeing a visual image as a representation of your selected features that extends all the way to application level.

(edit: it's not very clear that that question is related to yours, when searching, though ;-) )
