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

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

It sounds interesting but... my oh my, Techradar! What a horrible design! It started showing the article and I even managed to read the first paragraph, then it popped up a huge banner "I see you are...

Re: Pure Maps

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.
Please test...

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?

Re: QML question(s)

@Zeta,
myGrid and myOtherRectangle are siblings.
I found anchorItem in some other source where I took the inspiration from. I did not find it myself.
