Hi all thought i would start the ball rolling with this so hopefully some might look at development.
yota not releasing the phone in usa has in my opinion stopped a lot of development happening for the e-ink display.
yota themselves appear? not to be coming up with anything useful for the screen too --- guess its concentrating on the yota3 (dont think i will be purchasing)

i bought the phone because of its e-ink screen and i would like to see :-
  • a widget that has a countdown to a google calendar date in days / hours (minutes but not necessary) which updates on a daily / hour basis
anyone else have any wishes?

I would like to have an improved communication bar allowing me to select which SMS and Email apps are used. I would prefer Facebook Messanger as SMS app and Outlook for Emails.
I would also like to see an app-launcher widget for 4 apps in a row (without name underneath).

I would love an app that did:

1. Turn the front screen off and just have everything running in mirror mode on the back screeen.
2. Had quick toggle on the volume key for fast monochrome and slow greyscale mode.
3. Work with both android 4 and 5.

I'd like a widget for the e-ink panel that mimics the notification panel that drops down in the main screen. ie, all notifications with preview as is shown normally in drop down.

BTW, is there any place where I could found info on how to program apps for the e-ink screen?

Pretty much the only source for building apps for the back screen is Yota's developer page:
https://yotaphone.com/developer/docs...first-app-epd/

I also listed some tips in my post:
