Re: Unique opportunity for Sailfish
Chris, no, don't. I'm having enough of this prompting garbage on iOS where EVERY BLOODY TIME I get prompted that switching on WiFi would be so much better than saving my battery and not supporting positional accuracy for whichever 3rd party that is not close enough to government to simply demand cell triangulation - an extra trick they use is swapping "OK" and "Settings" around so you always have to look before you can stop it. And don't get me started on the mail app where every single mailbox will tell me it cannot talk to the server, despite that the OS itself knows full well that cell data is off or airplane mode is enabled. It's only funny the first time.
You may not, but someone sufficiently paranoid might like it. The point I want to make is that the ultimate decision should fall to the user, not the coder, not the phone maker. If the user wants to be prompted every 5 minutes, it's his/her call. The OS should allow, encourage, even REQUIRE the user make these calls about their apps.
