Table of contents

The apps I use the most are open source and in active development. Often, I notice bugs or I have ideas of possible improvements but I rarely have time to file a proper issue for every bug or a exhaustive post for a feature request. Thus, in this list I quickly note all the thoughts which pop up in my mind, hoping some day I will have enough time to effectively share my reports.

Note

Below, I take note of improvements or bugs which were not reported by anyone else yet. If there is something I noticed but someone else opened an issue about it, I will at most comment on it, but it will not appear here. In the same way, when I address the ideas I formerly wrote on this page, I successively delete them from here.



iOS #

Improvements and bugs of iOS which I notice while using my iPhone. iPhone feedback form

  • Siri offline
  • Clicking multiple times to toggle WiFi and Bluetooth: one click to disable it (white color), two clicks to completely switch it off. Alternatively, adding in the long-press pop-up the option to switch it off completely.
  • More selective notifications options, as in Android: select only specific types of notifications to mute
  • Extended screenshots


Shortcuts #

  • Apple Pay automation: trigger action passing the payed price to a shortcut
  • Create and edit Shortcuts from MacOS or from web browser, so that it can be easier to visualize changes.
