Change UI for incoming call in portrait mode [split Answer and Reject buttons]

Posted on 2010-01-19 20:29 UTC by ZeeD bI. Status: Under consideration, Categories: Desktop, User Experience.

This Brainstorm is merged with an other Brainstorm:

Please add your solutions there.



Original text of brainstorm:

Some users of n900 have a problem pressing Reject button instead of Answer. Especially when they operate by one hand or in gloves.

In landscape mode everithing is ok, both buttons are split vertically. In portrait mode those buttons are split horizontally so many people accidentally press Reject button.

May be Nokia can split/rearrange Answer and Reject buttons as a small improvement for n900 UI because Nokia do not want to add SWIPE option for incoming events on locked phone.


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.

Photo application to display Folders, not pictures

Posted on 2010-01-21 21:29 UTC by Tasos F.. Status: Under consideration, Categories: Desktop, Media, User Experience.

Add similar functions to File manager on Photos application:


If I send a photos folder on N900, photos application should display the folder instead of it's contents.

That way Photos become more organized(Wallpapers/Camera photos/Other).


Possibility to create/move folders and files within Photos application(similar to file manager).
