Hallo, this patch is absolutely useful. Would be great if you could upgrade it for SFOS Nuuksio. Is that possible?

I have a feature request, can you please apply the same effects while making a call too?

coderus's picture

what you mean? this patch is exactly for calls :)

Sorry, my bad. Initally it only working while receiving calls not when making calls. Now its fine.

Is there any way you can resize the profile pictures to a square, so the photo isn't chopped off which is not yet implemented by Jolla?

i don't know what are you talking about, sorry

What I meant to say is that, the contact image to be displayed as a square avatar rather than stretched across the whole screen. Since when the glass effect is disabled, the contact name is totally faded out and hardly visible. Can you do any tweaks from your end?

coderus's picture

Yes it's doable, but not in priority list

purplewakanda's picture

Looking forward to it :)

I installed patchmanager from Warehouse. However even after installation of your app and reboot of the phone, the background while on call remains the same.


coderus's picture

of course you need to install patchmanager first :)

Thanks, I figured that out later. I had not applied the patch.

Another cool patch!, I wondered if this could be applied to your 'conversation background avatar' patch?
