Re: Palm is back... um, or wtf

"Uptime" or "talk time"? If the latter, then it is about four times better than my Jolla.

And what is this "NumberShare" thingy they talk about? Something US-specific again?

Is this (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-45876934) basically the same thing only without the annoying blockers?

I've been resisting GitHub so far but I guess I will have to give in at some point. The patch is not a complete set of changes, it is abridged. Let me see what I can do. Either GitHub, if I succumb...

Due to the nature of the patch, it is highly version specific. This one currently works only with Pure Maps 1.7.1.

I find picotts generally much better than mimic. Worth trying.

Re: Pure Maps

ETA and remaining time are two ways of expressing the same thing.

My longer-term plan is to keep the visual as it is, with as little distraction as possible, but making it configurable. So you can...

I am open to suggestions. Could you please clarify what you mean? It is centered on the map part of the screen, with a fixed width that equals what its width would be in portrait orientation.

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

XA2 is newer. That qualifies as "better", does it not? ;)

Oh, and it has a fingerprint scanner at the back as opposed to on the side.
Yeah, that must be it.

Re: Pure Maps

At least one commercial satnav I used (iGO) had that, but dynamic with three(!) settings, expressed in % tolerance.
So I had:
0% at 0-30 mph (to avoid troubles in built-up areas)
20% at 30-60 mph...

Re: Sailfish OS (officially) on Sony Xperia devices

Absolutely, the same here.
And I think I know why.
Because I would write it for someone like me. With an understanding of expectations and pitfalls.

Re: 2.2.1.18 Nurmonjoki

Yeah... 16:10 is also weird. It's 8:5, FFS.

16:9 makes sense. It cannot be shortened. But 16:10, 18:9 or my suggestion, 16:12, are nothing more than a marketing trick. The fact that "it makes more...

What's this with 18:9? Not that I have anything against the format, but why 18:9? Why not 2:1?
