I want support for Miracast, pushing media to TVs using DLNA/WIFI direct from anywhere (browser/music&video player). No mobile OS doing this really good yet "iOS need appleTV to do this" android and its fragmentation effecting this.

Please please Jolla add this feature, it gonna be awesome.


other than that I want a very good email client, best browser possible.

I really don't care what browser to use, as long as it works smooth, and doesn't have too much features. Right now on 3 year old hardware with android, it's Firefox...

I care instead, I use Firefox on PC at work, at home and on Android: the sync feature it's very useful for me. So I have proposed that browser, if you don't care, good for you but this is MY OPINION.

I think Firefox sync is open source/ free to use so why not bolt the native browser into it? I hope and feel the native browser will be best and fastest for some time at least. And even though I really like FF and Opera mini on my other phones, I doubt they will be able to make it as good as the native browser - soon anyway.

I do.  The social network I am most satisfied with. Not many of my friends are there, however it's excellent as form of exchange and knowledge. Beside this I use Facebook, but only because it is really hard to get out of it when you really use it.  Actually it's just to stay in contact with some people, but it is flooded with garbage information and posts. Identi.ca died for me with the switch to pump.io, it does not fit me needs. No other networks in use, especially proprietary and centralized ones I will not use.

There was talk with ALI about the need for a "smart task killer" or similar, which would kill apps based on the users' parameters... Anyone heard of an app like this being confirmed, or anyone else think this kind of an app would be a must?

Well i think i could survive without such application, but to have it could be very useful i think: more i've got control on my device, more i'm happy..

Task killer is really not the way to do it. They just hog more resources when looking for tasks to kill, and the tasks just come back after a while.

Id want a simple process manager tough to see whats running so i can just uninstall the app because it has a random background process. Or have a way to disable the app from going into background all together, by some other means than just killing it every time it pops up.

Well, I do! and many others that I personally know they are Jolla fans.
It's much better (In security terms) than other social networks in my opinion. it would be nice to see a native app for it! Although I don't think any would be available.

I hope to see a native port of Firefox browser too...

IIRC, it was mentioned that the Jolla browser is actually Firefox with a Silica UI.

That may be something you are (more or less) looking for: http://khertan.net/ownnotes

Some kind of browser remote control for the Jolla would be awesome, like Airdroid for Android.
I guess Airdroid won't work on the Sailfish Android compatibility layer since it most likely requires a lot of significant permissions on the system which I doubt Sailfish is gonna provide for Android apps.
