New Ideas

Postby imajar » Sat Oct 11, 2014 10:23 am

Hello Everybody!

The gospel library beta app for windows 8.1 is awesome! If you have any ideas, submit them here.

To kick things off, here is my idea:
When studying, or in Sunday school, institute, etc, it is often necessary to be able to switch back and forth between scriptures. In the android version of gospel library, you are able to do this using "screens" (or tabs as I call them).

My idea, however, is a variation of this concept: It is to introduce layers (or folders) to create groups of tabs (or "screens"). For example, when studying at home, I could have a folder or group of tabs that contain content for my personal study, or when preparing for Sunday school, I could have a different collection of tabs. Additionally, I could temporarily create a folder for an institute class to be able to flip back and forth between scriptures without having to muddle through all of my other tabs.

To see this execution in other programs, you could take a look at MS OneNote, which allows you to organize note pages 4 levels deep, or you could take a look at app-tabs in Mozilla firefox, which does the exact thing I am suggesting for Gospel Library.

If this idea is considered, I would like to say, in closing, that in the android version, I am annoyed by how the "screens" auto sort by most recently viewed. It means that I cannot remember the location of the screen and have to search for it each time I need to open it. (for example, if it was in position 4 when I opened it, it moves to position 1, then when I open another screen, the screen that was in position 1 moves to position 2, and in this manner continues to move). I would propose disabling autosort and make it so that the user can manually move the positioning of the screens in the list.

Here is a picture showing one what this could be done:

[Moderator note: By all means - post new ideas in the forum. I hope imajar is speaking of submitting ideas for Windows 8 Gospel Library being submitted in the Windows 8 Gospel Library forum and not this tread. Each thread should address only one topic. Each idea is a new topic and therefore should be in a different thread. Congregating many ideas into one thread makes tracking and responding to each idea nearly impossible and confusing.

Please follow the Code of Conduct and "Do not start a new topic in an existing thread; instead start a new thread."]

Your feature idea has been passed onto the developer who is currently implementing the Tabs feature. I can't, of course, promise that your ideas will make it into the next release or that they'll be used at all, but we'll definitely be looking at them as we move forward with the Tabs feature.
