Summary list of suggested features

Post by Psyberia-Support » Tue Feb 20, 2018 10:06 am

READ before making a feature request
  • Be sure your requested feature can be useful to a great number (not only to you). Unfortunately we cannot spend time on features that will benefit to only few users and will make the application more complicated for all others...
  • Do not ask a feature "Because other application X or Y have it". We do not add features because other applications have them. We add add features when they are useful. So please simply explain in which way your feature would be useful.

Main suggested features that should not be added
  • Dropbox support for storing/retrieving landmarks (by andreazamboni here and Eagle724 here): you can open landmarks in the application from the official Dropbox app, and export them easily. You can also setup automatic backup of some folders using various applications.
  • Ability to turn on/off phone flash light from AlpineQuest: can be easily done using widgets, or custom buttons from within the application.
  • Ability to add a shift to the geolocation (by Wulfenia here): shifts in positioning are either due to a temporary inaccuracy of the GPS (and so disappear by themselves) or by a poorly calibrated map (and so map calibration must be corrected).

A great thank to all users for their feedbacks!
