I am not sure if tabs are such a good idea at the top there. I believe that the label at the top of the designs (see https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UbuntuPhone/CoreApps/Design for example screenshots) can be tapped and this will take you to other views.

When dragging, don't display the current window any more. It's invalid to drag an item from and to the same folder, so don't even make it the default reaction to starting dragging.

There's a good flying words pattern that Stephen Hawking uses for choosing from a tree structure. Can't remember the name though.

Tabs are an incredible tool for limited screen real estate, but it might be wise to have a Title that can be tapped to show the tabs or something to keep them from getting in the way. The most important things will be to have smooth integration with U1, the Photo app, the music app, the text editor app, etc and the ability for new apps to tie in to their specialized files (eg. Hydrogen drum machine for uPhone auto launching from mysong.h2song) and the ability to have decent previews for the photos (maybe even have the photo folder "become" the photo app?) and the music folder could "become" the music app...

In file manager portrait to landscape view should switch two panel view for internal memory and external removable memory.

grid view is not that informative and not usable as file manager ... rather it will be more like the photo ,music and doc app in one place. File manager should view details like file size, date created, and file type in the first place so grid view should be optional and list view should be default.

@doctormo: Current tab should always be displayed. What if my dragging action was a mistake and want to put the file back in its original place?

@Jono Bacon are you suggesting a behavior like the new "tab" design in the QML toolkit preview? I believe that does what you're describing, showing the main title nice and bold, but letting you access "adjacent" folders by interacting with it. I don't remember its exact behavior just now and my Quantal install just got ruined by hard disk failure so I can't check.

@ Michele a Excess indicator button /tab should be made to suggest these more content to scroll to such as it is in Mozilla Firefox

Hey Guys look this http://ubuntuone.com/7mFYggkffZxGRk9kFDg53H !!

I'm not sure how intuative swiping to the right for metadata would be. Wouldn't it be a little more natural to use a long press to spawn a menu of options, among which there is the option to view metadata? It's not like this is something I do with my phone all the time.

It also seems like that gesture is already used by the phone UI to move to the previous application (or to show the launcher... not sure which what motion you actually have in mind).

Guest replied 3 years ago , re: David's Version 4 from 3 years ago

Networking folders is a must! So many phone OS lack this.

Guest replied 3 years ago , re: David's Version 4 from 3 years ago

option to hide files, and menu setting to show or hide the hidden files

Guest replied 3 years ago , re: David's Version 4 from 3 years ago

@doctormo: Why is it invalid to drag an item from and to the same folder? You may want to put a file into a subfolder in the same window.

Guest replied 3 years ago , re: David's Version 4 from 3 years ago

There must be file search option which do recursive searching.

This design doesn’t follow the design guidlines – title on the top.
As in current design for Photo Gallery that the title on top doesn’t show the name of the application (but two sets of Events and Photos), I prefer not to showldquo;Filesrdquo; on that top but the name of folder (see the image I linked to).

Sorry it’s much easier for me to work with GIMP, and I don’t know how to add my images to the site. So I link to it:
