Summary list of suggested features

Post by Psyberia-Support »

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.
