Undelayed bugfix releases for Nokia (open source) packages.

Posted on 2009-12-03 11:49 UTC by Ville Reijonen. Status: Under consideration, Categories: User Experience, Devices, Marketing.

Nokia has few applications under open source licence such as Modest and application manager. Now, as case with Modest by the time of creation of this text, there are a few critical bugs/issues which affect a large amount of people. The fix is available in the source code but updated version of the package is not released until Nokia releases a full update. The lead time could be couple of months and the release times are never annouced beforehand.

In order to make Brainstorm more effective there should be a good way to watch/track what is going on without having to come back to check the pages for changes.

I would like to be able to see what new ideas/problems are being posted, what suggestions and comments are being posted for the ideas I am interested in and how ideas are changing state.


Maps/Contacts/Calendar Integration

Posted on 2009-10-04 20:15 UTC by Tom Joyce. Status: Under consideration, milestone: Harmattan, Categories: Location & Navigation, Office.

Many people have appointments at addresses which are stored in their Contacts directory.  It wopuld be nice to link the address information with the appointment and link that to the event's location in Maps.  Ovi Maps on S60 already has the ability to search for properly formatted addresses from Contacts and one would assume the Maemo version will have the same facility.

Implement portrait mode in Media Player (audio)

Posted on 2009-09-02 15:19 UTC by Marat Fayzullin. Status: Under consideration, Categories: Media.

It should really be possible to use Fremantle Media Player in the portrait mode, at least when playing audio. A typical usage pattern would be to keep Fremantle device in your pocket while listening to music, then quickly take it out with one hand to browse through the list of tracks. Portrait mode has following advantages here:

1. You can easily hold the device with one hand (like Nokia 5800 and similar devices)

2. The portrait-oriented track list can show more tracks

3. As the device is already sitting vertically in your pocket, to let the headphone wire out, you do not need to rotate it.
