Firstly, I think the question should be rephrased more broadly. Not just what applications, but what functionality do you want to see and etc.

Secondly, did Jolla consult the questions in the community list? I think they did, and that list already mentions tons of preferred applications and functionality. So let me repeat some key things:

* XMPP / Jingle client with OTR and ZRTP support. If Jolla can sponsor such development in Telepathy - that would be ideal. Right now Telepathy lacks such support (OTR and ZRTP). Nokia used to be the sponsor for Telepathy development (through Collabora?) but they stopped, since they abandoned Linux development. Right now secure and feature rich mobile IM clients are lacking. Jitsi is catching up, but it's written in Java and isn't the best candidate for Sailfish. Having a native client would be much better.


* Support for LDAP address books in the e-mail client.

@ shmerl

I've had a chat with Jalyst and concerns were discussed about blowing out the existing lists with info to the point where it may become too difficult to manage and/or collate specific info.

We though breaking it down into h/ware, os and applications might make it more manageable and allow for more concise and specific lists to be formed that would then make it easier to relate to jolla on a more formal basis?

Functionality is entirely dependent on hardware, against which the OS can then implement operability. I would suggest that, on this basis, it goes into THIS thread?

If application stuff from the original questions list isn't mentioned here directly, feel free to drag it across. we can tidy up as we go!

OK, I guess some functionality can be applications related, while some can be hardware related. It's not always clearly delineated. So this thread is more like "what else to port to Sailfish"?

yeah lol.

Will make a 2nd list in the OP for functionality and we can clean/merge later.

I would add full IM capabilites. Not only WhatsApp or Skype, but everything: GTalk, AIM, Yahoo, Facebook chat, etc.

If it can't be fully integrated to Telepathy (I'm assuming they're using that) at least they should do a *very gorgeous* port of pidgin.

And if they want to sell the phones they would need to attract regular users with also gorgeous native clients for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.

I'm not inclined to start another thread for the hell of it, but it would seem logical to do so, if only to make it easier to aggregate a concise list and make it easier to relay to them in a more formal manner at some later point.
Let me know your thoughts.
i don't want to clog the questions, ideas, concerns thread with this stuff.

Perhaps we should tease-it-out into 3 GDocs now:
*Hw/Sw Questions
(most of which they're likely to never answer, until they're ready to make public announcements)

The thread was meant to be mainly for discussing content that may go into the docs or is already there, what should be added, removed, or moved elsewhere once there's more public info etc.
Might be the way to go.

How about I start a "Applications you'd like to see on SailfishOS" thread to get us going, and if we want to, we can ask the Mods to merge it into one of the others later?
Sure, I can amend the title of the current main thread to reflect the 3 main categories/docs, & then later we can ask mods to merge your new thread into it. Just give me a chance to have the "ideas/suggestions" doc ready so you can link to it from your 1st post.
Okey dokey.
let me know if you need any help with the Gdoc stuff.
Flat out today, hopefully I should have time tomorrow...
Was having 2nd thoughts in merging all 3 threads, might be better to keep them separate but share the same grouping of gdocs.

native email client that can work almost as the same as Outlook; for example..
1. setting up default fonts+signature,
2. out of office auto reply,
3. threaded email conversation as an option
4. global address resolution per mailbox, regardless the default calendar/contacts
