So I have an idea for the Ubuntu Touch OS. It is something I use everyday on my android. It is a tilt control setting were if my phone tilts enough to be placed in my pocket or if my android is set face down the screen will lock. If I would like this specifically and other tilt controlls, like turning auto-tilt on and off, to be implemented into the Ubuntu Touch OS how would I go about making a setting page on the status bar called "Tilt Controls" were I can implement these controls and other ones. Also by doing so will it have to be an app for some one to install or who would I contact to get it intergrated into the system so its built into everyones Ubuntu Touch phone.

Those features would be great. I would be very happy to see them on my Nexus 4 running Ubuntu. Definitely give it a try.

If you're looking for help, a good way to get started will be to ask on IRC. You can find a list of channels here:
I'd suggest asking on #ubuntu-touch or #ubuntu-devel. If the one you choose isn't the right one, they'll tell you where to ask.

I guess that the feature would need to be included into the system. Apps won't be able to deliver that functionality.

Oh, and would you mind keeping us updated?
