    I agree with this
    I also refer to another suggestion that integrates this suggestion:

    I had prepared a text. I see that someone else has already submitted an item with this proposal. I would like to add what I have prepared

    overview current situation

    When working on a laptop and PC, it is not so obvious to always have to work in a browser for the applications of Proton AG. Moreover, for many specific aspects “solutions” have to be devised or there are no solutions at all.

    • You have developed Bridge, which is a separate “solution”. What separate solutions will you come up with? How much 'hassle' is involved for the end user?
    • You do not offer a (good) solution to share the contacts with other apps on the same device
    • You can integrate e-mail in thunderbird/Postbox/outlook/Apple. mail. However, this is a hassle and less obvious for people who are less comfortable with IT. Could we turn this around? Elaborated suggestion below.
    • in other suggestions I note that it is important for some people to be able to access the data even when they are offline. example: internet connection fails due to breakdown or maintenance work - almost everyone ends up in this situation at some point, right?
    • You have already indicated that you are considering developing a local application for the calendar. This is a nice suggestion and initiative, maybe my proposal can bundle a number of things in that direction?
    • several apps have already been developed by Proton AG. I'm making a proposal below, there are still proposals launched in this forum. Want to avoid a disorder of apps and solutions?
    • Today, data synchronization between fixed and mobile devices is a reality. Proton AG is doing very well, although there is room for some improvement, especially with regard to the contacts.
    • I do not use and have no interest in VPN, in that sense I cannot complete my suggestion. Others may be able to.

    I find it striking that the products produced by Proton AG are pleasant/jovial and quiet to work in. This provides your services with a great opportunity. Did you know that? May I invite you to further exploit this added value in the following suggestion?

    Elaborated suggestion

    In order to invite you to do so, I would like to make the following proposal:

    • develop an all-in-one application for laptop and PC (windows, mac, linux)
    ◦ to avoid having to develop different applications for the different applications, which can make your offer confusing
    ◦ e-mail
    ▪ You can be inspired by Thunderbird for many aspects, but also Postbox (www.postbox-inc.com)
    ▪ use of proton.me addresses as well as use of other domains which are immediately processed encrypted
    ◦ Calendar / Agenda
    ◦ Address Book / Contacts. Replaces the contacts application of the laptop/pc, other applications can use these contacts
    ◦ Drive
    ▪ Add/remove files
    ▪ Links to share with password
    ▪ Automatic backup of selected folders in the background
    Many of your competitors offer this option, I don't need to name them, they are known to you.
    ◦ Offer an option where the data is available offline: everyone sometimes finds themselves in a situation where they are offline due to sudden circumstances
    ◦ Bridge is omitted because it will be integrated in this all-in-one solution
    ◦ I am convinced that your helpdesk will be consulted much, much less as this all in one application will answer many questions automatically. The investment in developing an all-in-one application will pay for itself quickly.
    ◦ Following the solutions that are already available, Proton AG has the competences to develop such an application into a warm, pleasant, quiet and visually attractive solution. Who dares to doubt that???

    • For the mobile devices. Here the reasoning is reversed: individual apps
    ◦ Separate Contacts app that replaces the default Contacts app.
    ▪ From that app, contacts can not only be reached via the apps of Proton AG.
    ▪ Calls and video calls can also be started from that app.
    ▪ Automatic caller ID for an incoming call

    To round off

    Objective n° 1 of Proton AG is privacy (and security). My suggestion does not detract from this.
    May I invite proton AG to add an Objective n° 2? “Working in a pleasant/jovial and quiet environment”.

    It is precisely this last aspect, which is already present to a large extent, that, together with your first objective, convinced me to get started with your products. I bought a two-year subscription. Be motivated to get started within Proton AG with what was just handed to you in the above suggestions. Doing!

    Best regards,
    Joachim.

    I have prepared this text in Dutch and translated it into English with google translate. I don't yet know of a better solution than Google for translations.
