How the Symbian Developer Network adds suggested features

Published by at

Here’s a quick example on how the open nature of Symbian OS and the mechanisms put in place by the Symbian Foundation actually work. Sebastian Brannstorm submitted his request to alter the UI of the app launcher (namely a long tap on an icon would bring up an option to remove/delete the application). That feature has now been prototyped and is likely to make it into handsets. More links below.

You can follow the progress of the submission through the Symbian Developer Portal, from Brannstorm’s initial suggestion through discussion and into implementation.

Thanks to David Wood for the link.
