Just in these days I had thought about a similar proposal, but to realize what I had imagined before it would serve to implement some things.
I try to explain what I imagined:
currently delta chat manages a single “active/selected” account at a time, if I have account1 (selected) and account2 (not selected) I receive notifications of messages only for account1 and to see if I have received messages on account2 I have to change account. Currently this is, in my opinion, one of the biggest limitation of delta chat but when and if it will be overcome we could think about a home page with different tabs:
- A tab containing all the chats of all the accounts that have unread messages
- One or more tabs with the chats of every single account
Something like this:
| unread chats | account1 chats | account2 chats |
Swiping left and right you should be able to quickly change tabs and accounts.
And maybe in the header of each tab you could add an indication of the number of unread messages.
I don’t know how feasible such a thing is but I think it could greatly improve the usability of the application.
I hope to have been understandable considering that English is not my native language.
