The Suggestion Center lists user suggestions of emulators, games, and utilities that could be ported to or developed for the FunKey S.

If you have a suggestion that has not been listed here or wish to discuss your support or opposition to a listed suggestion, you may do so by typing in the text box below and selecting the "New section" button. This will automatically create a new section on this page's talk page, in which you may further specify your suggestion. When you are finished entering the details of your suggestion, select the "Save changes" button below the input field. If you wish to be notified if your suggestion receives a reply, you are encouraged to first log in and subsequently sign your post with ~~~~.

You may also submit FunKey S suggestions to the FunKey S Forum or Discord server.

Suggestion criteria[edit | edit source]

For a suggestion to be considered for implementation on the FunKey S, it must:

  • Not involve the modification of the FunKey S hardware.
  • Not involve the infringement of copyrighted and/or trademarked content.
  • Be within the realm of reason of the hardware limitations of the FunKey S.

All suggestion tables have a status column to indicate the level of progress made on each suggestion. A blank cell indicates no reported progress, a red cell indicates that the suggestion is not currently feasible, an orange cell indicates that the suggestion has not been implemented for a specific reason, a yellow cell indicates that the suggestion is currently in the process of being implemented, a light green cell indicates that the feature has been implemented by a third-party developer, and a dark green cell indicates that the feature has been integrated by the FunKey Team into the FunKey OS.

Note that a suggestion having a blank status cell does not indicate that it can or will be implemented, only that it has been suggested by a FunKey S user. Suggestions that would require the modification of the FunKey S hardware will be listed in the last section of this article, since while they cannot be added to the FunKey S, they could be implemented in future devices created by the FunKey Team.
