What native PinePhone application would you like to see in the near future?

Not sure if you consider flatpaks native applications?

It's already available on most current distros, at least the GNOME/Phosh-based ones.

Password Safe, available from Flathub as flatpak, fits the bill, and the latest stable version seems to work very well. I tried it quickly but it didn't seem to be plagued with cropped windows like it used to a few months ago.

Pure Maps from flathub. Streamlined UI. Coupled with OSM Scout Server for offline maps. I got to like it on Ubuntu Touch. I now even prefer it to OSMAnd+, which I find an utter mess. It has a bug on the Pinephone with Mobian though with the default Mapbox map, the target locator doesn't show. I've been meaning to check if the issue was reported. Its developer is very reactive. Pure Maps was initially developed for SailfishOS. One thing that's subpar is the voice directions though. Also, it being flatpack, uses a lot of storage space on a 2GB/16GB Pinephone.

See above. Smile

Forgot to add my own wishlist...
  • An activity tracker (biking, hiking, running, etc) with gps trace recording and viewing
  • A scale app / general health app (being able to export data to csv would be nice)
  • Not a missing app per se: MMS support, but I think it's finally coming
  • Not a missing app per se: video recording support and actually functioning Megapixels app...

That's all I'd require for my Pinephone to be my daily driver. Of course, a better browsing experience would be a bonus...
