Messenger Pro wishlist surveyBy Chris Williams. Published: 7th Jul 2004, 23:33:17 | Permalink | Printable
Email just as you like itWhilst work continues on Messenger Pro 3, Adam Richardson has released an application to survey users for future Messenger Pro features. Messenger Pro is a popular news and email client for RISC OS, that also boasts a Windows and Linux port.
Adam also maintains a Messenger Pro wishlist and bugs website, which was referred to previously by Messenger developer Mark Sawle. Suggested features listed range from 'keeping it clean and simple' to 'displaying HTML emails' - top marks for controversy, there.
Instructions for the survey are fairly simple: download the program, fill in the tables to vote on your favourite feature, generate a report file and email it back to Adam, who will eventually publish the results online.
Even if you're not a Messenger Pro 3 user, it'll be an interesting exercise to see what RISC OS users currently want from their email clients. The survey application is currently sending us on a misty eyed nostalgia trip, back to the old days when Acorn User would annually stick their user survey application on a cover disc. Perhaps another similar general survey would be useful for the platform, right about now.
