Here you can view (and add) things that you feel would be nice to have in Mobian.

Please keep the headers in alphabetical order.

Applications

Many of the dialogs do not fit on the screen and some (essential) controls are out of reach. It would be nice to be able to pan each dialog, or add scrollbars, or create a larger virtual screen that can be panned so that most existing ported Linux programs can actually be used. Games especially would benefit from gyro motion controls sent as joystick movement or a daemon with GUI which appears to the system as a joystick.

Instant messaging

The Nokia N900 uses a customized UI for Pidgin it is also easily configured in Debian Gnome desktop pannel, it is a a plugin based instant messenger framework. Pidgin provided the N900's IM services; it was bundled into the system UI, it uses standard libpurple to provide an API for easy plugin development as well as support ofr Bonjour, Jabber, GoogleTalk, IRC, and other IM networks, the Bonjour support permits auto-configuration and joining between clients on a LAN simplifying apps like HeySMS a phone SMS to desktop machine IM chat bridge found in this wiki page. Integration of the multimedia player into status can show what is playing for fun, the navigation system can have integration to provide or read from other users location as IM status or from a message to help two users meet up or locate a common destination. The N900 included SMS as simply another kind of messaging and used the same UI for IM and SMS. Pidgin has a plugin for Telepathy https://developer.pidgin.im/wiki/GSoC2009/TelepathyPrpl

Maps and routing

A simple script and launcher eventually with UI to grab the current location coordinates and send it to clipboard or pop options to share it to the input of various communication app(chat, SMS, etc) APIs to send your location 'pin' if possible with an option to send to Android or iOS devices too as well as looking for APIs in navigation apps to import or scrape the received GPS coordinates as sent by various apps from various OSs including Mobian and other pinephone OSs apps. A simple UI app to display hall sensor reading as angle off of level and compass would be useful to many, options to point to Mecca, Jerusalem, or other points for religious users may be useful to some users, giving headings off of compass to selected locations would be useful for other people.

Web browsing is an important part of the functionality of a mobile device but web 2.0 uses massive CPU and therefore wastes precious battery watt/hours to render a typical website quickly. User privacy is a primary goal of the project so ad-blocking and defeating trackers is important, maximum usable privacy and anonymity should be default settings, this includes adding community selected FOSS browser plugins to the OS installer and repository builds to achieve these goals.
