Future Things We Want Rim To Fix On The Playbook (Organized)

[ Edited ]

Well I cannot believe I just did this. I just went through the entire thread “Future Things we Want Rim to Fix On The Blackberry Playbook” (Found Here) yes all 16 pages. I made a list of all the features everyone requested in particular the more important ones / commonly requested and organized it in hopes RIM and PB developers and the like will come across this, and be able to quickly sift through what its users want. I will attempt to keep this updated as updates are released to solve these issues. Any suggestions feel free and I will edit the post. Please don’t spam this thread, let’s try to keep this thread organized. Remember this is for FEATURES. APPLICATION requests belong in the application request thread (Found Here).

 

These are not listed in any sort of importance, it’s just the list I compiled as I was sifting through the forum.

 

BlackBerry App World

  •          Sort Applications by New, Popular, Most download, Highest Rated etc.
  •           Sort Downloaded applications by Size, Name, Personal rating etc.

 

BlackBerry OS

  •         Cursor, it needs to be a lot simpler to move the cursor to edit a few letters/words currently the steps required are far too cumbersome. Many suggested arrow keys.
  •         File Manager, pretty straight forward
  •          Auto-correct, word anticipation, auto-capitalize, Spelling-suggestion, add to dictionary (Basically what our             BlackBerry Phone can already do)
  •          Pictures in Portrait Mode
  •          Wi-Fi Music Sync, similar to current BlackBerry Phones
  •          File Extension Support throughout OS that includes emails (.zip .rar .htm .html .wav) Streaming extensions such as .pls and .mp3 in email attachments
  •          Open Multiple Documents (Doc To Go, ppt to go, spreadsheet to go)
  •          Ability to quickly change font color, size, type, and various formatting of words (Double tap brings up a little window with few simple options)
  •          No backlight/stand-by option when plugged in
  •          Save E-mail to playbook for future edit (This might not be so important once a native client is on the PB)
  •          Support for File Folders within Email (Again, native email client might fix this)
  •          Adobe Acrobat Reader enhancement/bring up to par (PDF Search, Highlighting, bookmarks, click links)
  •          Open PDF in browser or support to auto-open PDF once downloaded (Should be an option to turn on/off)
  •          While viewing a picture/video in Pictures or Video App have the ability to send via email
  •          Ability to create custom folders for applications / home-screen icons
  •          Better Bluetooth support (headsets, cars)
  •          Recognition of an Email Address or Phone Number or Street Address in an Email/Browser/Application, if BB Phone is bridged then option to place call or launch email or maps should be available
  •          Search Text in Doc to Go (Ctrl + F like feature)
  •          Wireless Printing
  •          Ability to delete stock applications
  •          If GPS isn’t working and Phone is bridged it should make use of Phone GPS
  •          More Camera Options (timer, lighting modes, exposure settings etc.)
  •          Advanced Multi-Task options – Have two applications open side by side using gestures
  •          Gesture to put to sleep/unlock (2 Hand finger swipe from top-to-bottom) [I personally don’t mind the power button this is just what people mentioned] 

 

Keyboard

  •          Smart space bar similar to Blackberry Phones (Eg. Space in URL inputs a ‘.’ Or in an email it inputs the @)
  •          Hold letter to capitalize
  •          123/sym key locking after use, Most people only use one symbol at a time. Therefore, after clicking that symbol the keyboard should switch back to letters. (This should be an option to turn off/on)
  •          Arrow Key (Mentioned above, not sure how it would work, but if applied correctly it might be better than some form of cursor)

 

 

BlackBerry Browser

  •          Change browser ID for websites that specify Internet Explorer etc.
  •          Organize bookmarks – change order, rename etc.
  •          Search text in browser (Ctrl +F like feature)
  •          Save passwords in browser
  •          Flash on demand (option to press to play flash)
  •          New Option in settings – Default Links Open in new tab
  •          Ability to have multiple browser running (It is a Multi-Task power horse)

 

BlackBerry Bridge

  • Support photo, audio and videos of files on BB Phones
  • fb, twitter and other social apps should be able to push notifications into playbook and be viewed there as well.
  • sms can be viewed and edited just like BBM messages

Bing Maps
Weather
Clock

are all without vertical mode.

Re: Future Things We Want Rim To Fix On The Playbook (Organized)

so i noticed an even more massive list over on Crackberry.com (http://forums.crackberry.com/f222/suggestions-rim-playbook-improvement-608177/index.html ) so if a few people would like to help go through those and add it to this list so that RIM can see it on their support forum rather than a blackberry fan site that would be awesome.

**bleep** that deletes the purpose of this thread :smileysad:. I was hoping to keep it updated... I hate when forums don't let you edit.
