OTA 3 suggestions: your wanted features

    bug fixes, improve user experience. For instances N5 loses wifi after every reboot

    On my N5 this has not happened yet. New for r2, or you had this problem on r1 also?

    I think for Ubuntu Touch on any phone, if re-asked for password where you have already been connected, just press cancel and manually select your network in the network menu.

    This indeed works, but shouldn't be necessary. It annoys the hell out of me. I have a wifi extender at home and each time I move around this exact thing happens. With my old BQ4.5 and official UT it would just seamlessly reconnect.
    I don't know if it's an issue with the Nexus 5 or UBports.

    I have not tried my phone with a wifi extender, but for that case my little workaround does not seem good enough. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I don't know either, but i think it could be both a device-specific and a general problem. I have seen that this kind of behavior happens more often on my Nexus 5, but it has also happened on my Nexus 4 with the canonical image.



  • @hans1977se
    Also happened before OTA-2. Think there are two different hardware versions of the N5..

    Many good proposals, I just want to add -> full disk encryption.

    Registered for this forum simply to agree with this post.

    Filesystem encryption is the only absent feature I care about. The lack of encryption is the only reason I don't run UBPorts as a daily driver.

    Though I've never yet lost a phone or had one stolen, someday I might. Encryption frees me from worries over the sensativity of the data I store on mobile devices.

    Would anybody else be interested in the swype keyboard? I used to love that on my meego! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Could we get any more love for the swype keyboard? ๐Ÿ™‚



  • This post is deleted!


  • Sound notifications should have a configuration to repeat the notification each 10 minutes (this time could be also a setting) until checked by the user. It should repeat at least 3 or 4 times, or number of repetitions should be also configurable. I'm missing this feature since my Palm days.



  • After playing with the r2 release there are a few more things that I would like to see in r3:

    • notifications to open or delete dekko emails

    • browser tab size to be increased

    • keyboard to always show when typing

    • tap wake up

    • greater vpn support in specific app

    • regular updates



  • I was thinking about on screen time, date and stats during standby, activated when the device is not in the pocket - based on the proximity sensor. Such a behaviour was present on N9 Meego.



  • I would ask a BIGGER FONT (and more aesthetic layout) for INCOMING CALLS. Without glasses I hardly see who is calling.

    @ratte and other ask for caldav and carddav support. Actually it is implemented already. I finally manage to sync with a horde server, there are different threads in "askubuntu", and not all work for me, but finally I got it. I wrote the sync command and eventually launch it from "scriptor" app. The CALENDAR APP is not very good, but I wish it had a SYNC BUTTON, just launching in cli "syncevolution CONFIG_NAME".

    CUSTOM SOUNDS FOR NOTIFICATIONS and their REPEATABILITY would be great, just in case we miss to hear it once.

    A home scope/screen where the items to show and their size is customizable.

    @abernator You could remove "SD card found" notification, from "System Settings --> Notifications" and deselecting the notifications within the "External Drives" app.

    Hi.
    Hi would love to have printing abilities build intro the OS. I would als think it nice to be able to block unvelcome phone calls and sms. Having the posibility to phone over mesh-networks, wifi and other "non-standard- phone-networks", would besvรฆret cool too.

  • @guru said in OTA 3 suggestions: your wanted features:

    Maybe someone could make a table of all the good proposals or feature requests and we can all vote up/down the requests and have at the end a list what matters most.

    I started but have to go now: plesae continue. As lack of an idea where to put I created it on the wiki
    OTA-3 wishlist



  • Hi
    I think it'd be really good if the Scope/apps page could be summoned by the Ubuntu button, as it was with Unity8 and is with Yunit.



  • I would like to see customizable scopes.
    In a way like:
    Give me a empty scope page.
    Let me choose content out of the data of the installed apps.

    OTA3 could provide a way for the app devellopers, so that they could theach there apps how to send content to a customizable scope.

    And what I relay would like to have is a better way to set the cursor position in a text.



  • I have N5 as daily driver now.

    Few things that comes to mind..

    • Of course I want known bugs to be fixed..
    • Somekind of simple system monitor where you could see open processes, their cpu and ram usage.
    • Power saving options, eg. disable all logging..
    • HDR mode to Camera.
    • Magnifying glass or some simple zoom when selecting text.


  • First of all. THANK YOU devs! I love you guys.

    Ok so I am trying very hard now to stay with UT *ubports to be my daily use device. The first priority should be always bugfixes.
    About features:

    1-for me is a must to have at least one real working good communication service, right now Telegram is the right one but as others reported it already. It works weird when the 4g/wifi connectivity get lost. Also no audio calls, no supergroups yet.
    I know that there is umatriks in very very hard development with huge steps forwards but still not there and most important, not ready for the masses.

    2-Better Scopes integration is a neat feature.

    3-Browser..... the actual browser is amazingly great for me to be honest. But it needs a few improvements to be very good. I would love to see a revamp in the tabs, and better support for modern web pages.

    4-When writing a message, a better more accurate keyboard would be nice. As someone suggested. The magnifying glass as the Iphone OS has would be a good solution when trying to edit a message/text.

    I think this is everything. I just need a good messenger to keep in touch with my family. Sadly LoquiIM is stills under development and for now its very unusable for me because I keep receiving DECRYPT error.. so no whatsapp for me. Skype just let me make voice calls that is good at least. It will be good to have something like Jitsi working.
