What are must have apps? Things you can do



  • Hi,

    I just setup syncthing and felt disbelief I hadn't come across this earlier.

    So whatever must have setups do you guys have?



  • I do not understand your question right, but these are the most important things needing some development support imo even for 15.04:

    • Notifications for all services
    • Supporting uMatriks development so that it will be usefull like riot on Android
    • new web browser
    • support super groups in telegram app


  • Give me a real browser like opera or chrome



  • An unified email client with calender support.
    I would somehow prefer a comunication program: SMS, Signal, Telegram, mails,calenders....all unified in one good program with the ability of making a backup.
    I would like to reduce this stupid app-mess of smartphones that apple and google created.



  • That's an easy one :-)Terminal, with a full ability to use apt-get to install and update packages, without the hacky solution of disabling write protection on the system.

    Convergence, to me, is less about being able to connect a display, mouse and keyboard (though that would be nice), and more about having the same unfettered access to the command line and traditional linux package management as I do on the desktop :-)

    FWIW, I just installed this for the first time, but the first thing I did was research how to get apt-get working ;-) Among users of a Linux phone, I imagine there must be more people like me :-)

    ....

    This is easy. Create a chroot system and there you can install and compile anything you like. You can even launch applications from outside the chrooted system when setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH accordingly so the application can see needed shared libs, etc.

  • @guru Thank you for your reply! I'm afraid I don't have experience with chroot, but what I have read sounds promising :-) Some questions remain, but I feel I should gain some experience before asking them here. I will experiment with this :-)
