Rating:

No votes yet

For SailfishOS version 1.1.9.28 only!! DON'T FORGET TO REMOVE THIS PACKAGE (NOT JUST THE PATCH IN PATCHMANAGER) BEFORE UPGRADING TO A LATER VERSION!

Patches the homescreen in a way that shows the four favorite applications more often:

  • Every time you go to the homescreen (from apps, lockscreen or events view)
  • Every time you tap the background (not just when you have no apps open)

Enjoy!

Warnings:

  • use on your own risk. It may break your system, so don't blame me if it does :) It works well for me, though.
  • it works only on SailfishOS version 1.1.9.28

Hi

Thanks for this putch, very useful...

I don't know if this bug or normal behaviour, but it also hinting favorite applications when I press on the cover of one of the opened apps. It first show the favorite applications line and only after this it open me needed app. It's take too much time to open app from cover.

Will be nice if you can fix it ;)

Hi

You are great, this is an important function: Every time you tap the background (not just when you have no apps open) , really needed this and works good!

But one thing with the other function : Every time you go to the homescreen (from apps, lockscreen or events view)  - It would be nice if it can be optional because when I just go back to home screen and I want only select one of runing application, need to wait for the "popup favorite apps animation" and just when that animation finished, only after then "enlarge" the app. It needs more time than I just swap my app-s normally.

Thanks!

Hi,

this patch is not intended for public use yet, that's why I hid it from OpenRepos main page. I am now working on a better way to access the 4 most used icons, as this approach turned out to be quite buggy.

 

Thanks for understanding.
