Call log (record) limited to 30 days

The N900 call log (record) is limited to only 30 days. This should be either unlimited, or there should be at least an option to enable unlimited logging.

Wouldn't it be nice to be able to copy/cut/paste whole events in the calendar?


Time interval DSLR signals

This idea is just an extension of an existing app by twaelti - Shutter. (


This extension (or new app) would provide an user interface to set interval and number of shots to be taken at each interval. Some examples below:


1. 2 shots to be taken after 3 minutes have elapsed since the last shot.

2. 1 shot to be taken after 1 hour has elaspsed since the last shot.


This would just replace the need of expensive time interval kits for many cameras and also provide interval photography options to camera without inbuilt options ( the D300 has interval photography options but not the D90).


If you look at practicality, it would be a stretch as it would require the N900 to be in line of sight of the camera at all times. But still its an idea.

Multi-touch functionality

I know N900 will never support real multi-touch functionality because of resistive screen. But I would like to add some ideas how to implement it with almost same comfort by one touch at the time.


Multi-touch functionality, like zoom and turn, is the only thing where the iPhone is still better than N900. Why not mimic these actions where it is possible and make N900 more attractive for iPhone users? Let say that one finger touches the screen always before the other. You can perform same actions if the first touch position is fixed. It does not make any difference if hold your finger on this position or you rise it. So you can raise it before making the other touch. The only trick is how to recognize the first touch.
