+ to what you've suggested.

Notification bar where you get notifications from Lifeinvader (followers/new posts/adds) if possible, missed calls, low battery, etc.. along with a notification sound whenever any of these are received. OR latest notifications app which lists all of them for us.

Weazel app where we post our adverts requests in the way we want them to post it, instead of calling them over and typing how we want it to be like in the chat and they should receive those requests. Like the taxi app, 'Request advert online' and 'Request a currently active Weazel advertiser'.

Select whatever multiple items that we want to delete.

DND mode, vibrating mode.

Settings app:

-The ability to change the wallpaper, ringtone, and notification sounds.

-Battery Percentage On/Off, don't know why it was removed.

-24/12 hours time formats.

-Dark/Light mode in settings (Lifeinvader's website supports it in out of game browsers, so it should be easy to make it dark mode too.)

Power phone off without having to type the command through the interface itself.

The phone's battery level should run out faster as the phone has become a modern one.

Sections for contact app to organize contacts or the ability to nickname them beside their actual name.

The alarm system notification should be forwarded to our phone's texts for IC/OOC evidence that it was being broken into.

There should be timestamps based on the /time time on phone calls/texts, for IC proof purposes.

Sorting and dating messages based on most recent.

All great ideas, Looking for more, specific apps though like the Weazel News app idea!

Weazel has a lot of internal policies and permissions though, so involvement will be a requirement.

  • Weazel App
    • [service details              ] - (Service Request)
    • (Accept Quote)
    • (Deny Quote)

Music app where you input a YouTube URL and play whatever (Music only plays when you keep the phone held in your hands 

2u8Lmr3.png and stops once you slide it back EYp5E7W.png) This would not ditch car speakers/speakers and it should have a lower volume and spreading

distance than them

Mail app

clicking minigame(s) maybe, for players to contest scores on it

rearrange icons on the home screen

Email

One of the original benefit to email was the ability to send/share files and media. This may be possible via LifeInvader chat system maybe that's not enabled at this time? Could be used as 'email' basic communication can already be done though with text messaging.

+1 TO EVERYONE'S IDEAS

 

VEHICLE GPS: 

- Pull up the phone, and click on Vehicles. App will show the vehicle status and player will need to press 'Track" vehicle to get it shown on their MAP.

Already mentioned above.

- Screen Timeout: (All IC time based) 1 minute, 2 minutes, 5 minutes, 15 minutes, 20 minutes, or Never

   > I read that having the phone's screen on (phone turned on) makes the game run less smooth/a slight FPS drop (I have tested it and it did indeed make my game run worse), so if the screen could go off for the specified time but also keep the phone turned on (still be able to receive texts, calls, etc.) like a normal phone would be great, the screen should automatically turn on whenever we receive a message/call. To be honest, the power off button should be implemented into the phone itself on the home screen or have a double-click to turn the phone off button at the sides with a confirmation. So that would be a good resolution for both IC (like a realistic phone) and OOC (game lag).
