This Page is a compilation of wishes from the Maemo community, this info was compiled from several threads on You can add your own wishes directly in this list

This list aims to be simple, in order to help new Maemo developers/members get ideas/features needed by the community and also to show to Nokia, the community desires.

There is a more general software wish-list.
