Re: Conversation w/ Palm, give me your complaints

Please talk to him about trying to push a file explorer app and enable the ability to download files from the browser in the pre, not having one is a huge drawback in a business device cuz you will need to store multiple files since you have the ability to use the device as a mass storage device wether supported by another app or not, so you will need to download from the web pics, mp3, documents, pdf's, etc as well as saving it from email attachments so having that limitation will hurt a lot of users

So my plea...

1. File manager / explorer
2. Web and email downloading / saving (or an option to open, stream, or download)

Thanx

Re: Conversation w/ Palm, give me your complaints

I'll approach this with a slightly different angle. I didn't buy a Pre because i was concerned about build quality.

The forums over a pre central are crawling with complaints about build quality ("oreo effect", issues with the slider etc). As far as I can tell (and please correct me if I am wrong) the build quality issues haven't been addressed.

I noticed the issues while at the Sprint store. Yes, I'm well aware I was using a demo unit, but nonetheless it caused me concern.

Other than that my only other concern was the software. I'd like a dedicated desktop PIM application and to see an app store explosion. If I recall, some programs (like the calendar) didn't rotate with the accelerometer. The screen was definitely awesome. I found it very responsive to gestures (swiping, pinching etc.)

Fixing the build quality issues would have me overlook all of the above however.

i've heard the same things and seen some almost horrifying pics about the slider but my phone is second production run (i'm pretty sure) and the slider feels pretty tight but i'll mention it just to be sure

*1. Download from web to pre
2. Record Video (I dont use it but the one day I would want to it would be nice to have)
*3. Customized text alerts

Re: Conversation w/ Palm, give me your complaints

1+ for the poster above

1.file explorer
2.Flash for browser
3.Downloadable content
4.Zip file access
5.Video Recording
6. On screen keyboard

can't change the micro sd situation and a better keyboard is out so I think these things should do.

yeah this has been mentioned a couple of times over on precentral and we're theorizing a rebuilt radio maybe? what i know is that in terms of signal reception my pre doesn't even come close to the TP and i don't think the TP was that great on reception either
