namely a way to arrange apps into folders or categories on the desktop: communications into one, maps & navigation into another, utilities into a third and so on.
This is not what they did. To arrange apps the app drawer will be the place for such evolution.
Scopes brought content arrangement, actual images or audio files, they acted more like a search engine for various kind of content.
A scope for Yelp could return restaurants nearby. a scope for foursquare was able to search for restaurants, monuments or hotels...
Thank you. I realise all that but I could not get it to work. Eventually I found the problem to be that I was swiping up from the bottom edge of the visible display, when what I needed to do was swipe up from the bottom of the glass which is over half an inch further down.
All's well that ends well.
Yes, it really seems like an excellent navigation app. I mostly use OSMand on my Android phone, but Puremaps has me seriously thinking about making an in car Ubuntu Touch based entertainment/navigation system.
I think the swipe based input navigation might also works better for such a system, although ultimately I really need physical buttons and not only a touch-screen.
I have not read the whole thread. All these limitations will go away some day. OSM Scout Server can be triggered automatically in background when Pure Maps tries to reach it (via a systemd socket). So no need to manually disable app suspension, no need to manually start OSM Scout Server and no need to close it afterwards. All this is already supported by OSM Scout Server and Pure Maps and will be available once we got Systemd in UT.
The OSM Scout Server will need to remain unconfined unfortunately.
Thank you very much for the help. I just experienced this myself. I get so few calls that I wasn't sure it was a bug or something else. I didn't notice anywhere mentioned that they changed how they answer calls (I am pretty sure we used to just tap) but i'll take a feature change over a bug any day.
