Revision as of 00:27, 8 February 2012

Developed by Daniel Marth during Google Summer of Code 2011. User interface ideas (under development): On startup a "home screen" is shown that lines up a couple of possible activities. Each activity is represented by its name and an icon, aligned in a grid. Selecting any activity brings the user to the main screen. The main screen adjusts itself to the chosen activity and provides a way to go back to the home screen and related activities. Most activities display a map (MarbleWidget) as the main widget, but that's not always the case (e.g. during configuration).

Contents

TODO List

Description Type Target Comments
Street Map Theme Preference Polishing 1.3.3 Correctly update after installations (possibly need to forward countChanged signal)
Use Harmattan colors Polishing 1.3.3 Replace: Blue and gray in Navigation activity, lightsteelblue in hightlights
Fix float item borders Polishing 1.3.3 There are pixel errors
Improve whitespace usage in Search/Routing Polishing 1.3.3 Use more space for the map whenever possible (e.g. no search result, no turn directions)
Voice installation progress Polish 1.3.3 Use a progress bar to show the voice navigation speaker download/installation progress.
Consistent margins and spacing Polishing 1.3.x Currently often hard-coded or missing
Improve map matching Feature 1.3.x No turn instructions if direction and distance indicate that we're not following the route. Detect that a U-turn is needed and announce it.
Reverse geocoding for via points Feature 1.3.x Use that instead of "Point in map"
Remove via points Feature 1.3.x Currently deactivated as triggering it from the ViaPointEditor delegate affects the delegate itself (deletes it) which results in a segfault for some reason
Concatenated voice commands Feature 1.3.x Test whether concatenated commands (turn distance) work.
Test whether monav is installed Feature 1.3.x Recommend users to install monav when it's not there
Add missing activity icons Polishing 1.3.x Routing, Tracking and Navigation still use generic icons
QML Tile Creation Progress Item Polishing 1.3.x QWidget version instantiated by MarbleMap, looks strange and is portrait only
Search result icons Feature 1.3.x Add an image provider for placemark icons and use it in search results
Last target as route destination Feature 1.3.x Keep a model of last route targets and let the user choose from it when editing via points
Improve Offline Routing Data UI Polishing 1.3.x Right now, it's a very long list with lots of small items to pick. Maybe add this alphabetical scroll slider (like in the contacts app) or use a drill-down menu like in Nokia Maps? Continent -> Country ( -> Province or All)
