View Full Version : What's your dream app for iPhone?

There may already be a thread like this, but I couldn't find one.

So what's an app (whether it's a web 2.0 one, an official Apple widget, or whatever) that you hope to see developed for the iPhone?

For me, as a New Yorker, I would love to see something like Google Maps but done specifically for NYC's subway/bus routes (something better than the official MTA maps which are never quite detailed enough), showing the best way to get from one destination to another after some input from the user -- with live updates of service changes/advisories.

Ok, I know it's simple... but it's the first thing I came up with. I'm sure I'll think of dozens more.

So what's YOUR dream iPhone app?

Salling Clicker would be great. I've missed it since I got my crippled RAZR. I never had a real need for it, but boy was it cool doing presentations controlling Keynote slides from my phone

I got one. I've been thinking about this one since it was announced.

I would like an app that makes the iphone work as a remote control for your airtunes over your home network. So it the iphone would use the same GUI as it does for music on the iphone itself but acts like the remote that sonos uses for it's system (www.sonos.com). So you can chill on the couch while the iphone access the playlist from your computer or iphone and choose the songs via the iphone to play in any and all of the rooms in your network with airtunes or apple tv hookups.

that and skype, that works just like a phone an automatically kicks in on international calls with out doing to much if anything extra.

Exactly! I have been an eWallet user for years. I don't have a PDA anymore but I still use the desktop app for storing web ID/PWs, account numbers, etc.

We have so many accounts, web accounts, software license keys, VINs, SSNs of the kids...just way too much to keep in my head.

I was shocked when I found out that my latest and greatest Verizon cell phone could do 3D games and video but there were no basic local database applications.

I still think this is could be a killer app for the iPhone. This should have been one of the included apps.

My dream app would be a really slick way to take, organize, and study notes. That's something I've started development. It will probably take a long time though.

This and other such posts partially inspired me to write iPhone Cream (http://iphonecream.com), where people can post and vote on iPhone app ideas and actual iPhone apps as well.

And also be able to dialup with my iphone. AKA, use it as a modem. Be nice to surf the web using the 3G network on my MacBook.

Copy and Paste (not an app. I know)

-Radio streamer like my old Nokia (used it more than I though I would)
-A cool add on hardware piece like the ipod has and software that allows you to connect your camera to your iphone, snap pictures and be able to see the results in seconds. Would benefit in situations where the camera's screen isn't sufficient enough to show details.
-Video Conferencing. I don't think I would use this, but I like the idea
-An app that allows me to connect my iphone to my SUBARU WRX. It will allow me to view live readings of my car such as Boost, MPG, Airflow etc. For us car guys, it would be awesome to have something like this which has cool gauges and other options.
-An application that allows me to use my iphone as a alarm. Some how, my iphone can connect to my car alarm wirelessly (of course) and let me know what part of my car was touched.

Cool app for me would be some app which justifies me playing about on it so much.
I'm forever taking it out of my pocket to slide the screen unlock, and just play with the touch screen (this is how touch screen should be!).
I think maybe a game (monkey ball could be darn addictive!), and some kind of file storage/editing app.
I love the idea of having a system to keep track of notes for university, but it would need to work with a desktop counterpart so that I could print it all off (yes yes, we hand an appendix in so it would all be need).
For me, the iPhone needs no killer app.
Would be awful nice if it could actually get me up in the morning though (the alarms sound tame on the iphone).

i guess it's not an app but wouldn't it be cool if you could place your iphone on a charger and then have a bunch of cordless phones scattered around the house which all connect to the iphone. this way if the iphone was dead you could be charging it and be in a different room from the charger.

It's called MMS (multimedia messaging service), sort of the upgraded version of SMS. Been out in Europe at least 5 years. Not supported by th iPhone, with no plans for supporting it :confused:

Still, with push email and 3G, we'll have a brilliant service and no need for SMS or MMS at all so I'm not really complaining.

got bored at work so i decided to try and make a magic 8-ball app. you start it up its shows a alert on how to use it. you press down on the 8-ball with a finger and shake it and let it go it returns to teh center and tells you what it thinks. like i said i got bored not saying this is the best app but thought id share. oh btw since i wrote this in sdk and apple is bieng **** about uploading apps your going to have to wait till hacks come out to load your own sdk app to your phone, then youll be able to install. any comments pls leave msg or pm, thanks.

How about an camera-integrated application that can scan a barcode from a snapshot, and then connect you with reviews/prices/etc on the web? Basically, a copy of that program featured in the latest Wired issue for Google's android software.

That would be just plain cool.

Hello Quicken. Hopefully they will make a pocket/mobile version.

What I wish Apple would do, is to be able to create private folders for photos. That way the iPhone could easily be used for business type settings where you do not want to show your personal photos. In addition, this would solve your issue.

word processor please.
That would be nice.

A self destruct button?
:)

The old Palm Pilot PDA had that. You could just break it in two. :)

That would be sweet.

Agree with these.

The To-Do manager should sync with iCal.

Notes should sync with a folder on your computer.

Barcode Reader
Interesting idea.

I'll add, in no particular order:

- Video app so you can take videos with the built in camera.

- Folders for applications like contacts so you can sort your contacts if you want. Business vs. Personal for example. And the ability for a contact to show up in both categories if you want.

- Newton Gulliver type app.

- Newton Calx type app.

1Password already does this for the Mac and have said they are working on a similar app for the iPhone.

SplashData also has a desktop password manager called SplashID and have said they are working on an iPhone version.

I use 1Password on my iMac and SplashID on my Treo and PC. Of the two I'd choose 1Password because it has better browser integration and the developers seem to have more Mac development experience.

My dream apps that are pipe dreams.

How about a place to SAVE FILES?

There are so many work files I need to access on a regular basis... Excel files that are schedules, marketing documentation, etc.

The work around (that I haven't used but could) is to send yourself email to a gmail or yahoo account and save it into a folder other than inbox). 1. That's a hassle. 2. It only works when you have Internet access.

One of my dream apps is one that works as a checkbook and a budget system. You can manage checking/saving/credit and other accounts, as well as set a budget for week/monthly expenses. There are various apps that have some features, but I haven't found an app that has all that I need. Ideally you'd be able to take any new deposit into an account and, in the budget section, divide up a percentage of the money to each category. Then, when you spend moeny from the account later, you mark where the money was actually spent.

Most of my suggestions are not really apps at all but add functionality (maybe they're more like drivers).

- Bluetooth or wired (dock) keyboard support

- Copy and paste

- Ability to act as a USB hard drive that mounts on a desktop (mac or pc) with no extra software required

These are things that I had (and used frequently) with my old Palm Lifedrive that I would love to have with the iPhone.

Get BossPrefs.

My dream app is a powerful file manager, like MobileFinder was back in the day with 1.1.2. Right now the only one is iCommander, and honestly it sucks. No copy/cut/paste, no delete, no launching apps. All it is really is a file browser. I heard that with 2.0 MobileFinder needs a complete rewrite, and that's why it's taking so long to come out.

voice dialing, something that can enable vibrate when Dialing a number on the key pad, a foobar remote app :], copy and paste.

I would like a music app that can tune into Serius and XM stations and scrobble that info to Last.fm!

And while I'm dreaming, how about an app that randomly dumps cash into my bank account. :D

The most obvious missing app is an ATT coverage map.

If you travel around town, or across country, can you expect coverage at your destination? Can you head down the block, or down the road to pick up a decent signal? How useful would an app be that can actually map area coverage.

Of course ATT should provide such a basic app but alas it's ATT. The functionality of their interactive coverage map on their website is circa 1995. These (JAVA?) maps don't load on an iphone Safari.

What do you think?

I found it yesterday: ColdBeer. Poor look but it works obvisious and might be an eyecatcher next BBQ season. But favorite still SignalScope.

How about a place to SAVE FILES?

There are so many work files I need to access on a regular basis... Excel files that are schedules, marketing documentation, etc.

The work around (that I haven't used but could) is to send yourself email to a gmail or yahoo account and save it into a folder other than inbox). 1. That's a hassle. 2. It only works when you have Internet access.



This app was a year old, why revive it ??

We are pleased to announce NewAppIdea.com (https://www.newappidea.com). NewAppIdea.com is a meeting place where people with new app ideas but no programming skills can meet and hire expert app developers.

After reading article-upon-article about people turning their app ideas into app store success stories, we became frustrated with our inability to find a qualified developer to turn our own app idea into a reality. We also sensed that we were not the only people out there with great ideas and searching for app developers. From that experience NewAppIdea.com was born.

There’s no cost for those with app ideas or app developers to become members of the NewAppIdea.com community. Users simply post their app ideas on NewAppIdea.com, app developers bid on the opportunity to develop those ideas, and users can pick and choose which developer they want to hire to create their apps.

When I was in middle school in the early 90's, I used to love to play Sim Ant during my lunch breaks, on a (now dinosaur) Mac, that my math teacher had in his classroom. I have been researching if this game is still playable in any format and the results are not good. I do not have an old Mac, nor would I buy one just to play this game. With so many iPhone games being developed, has no one thought to revive this classic? Is there a licensing issue that is halting development? Can no one present the idea to Maxis and get this going for the iPhone? I would buy it and so would others from the amount of postings about the game that I have found online. Let's go app developers! Sim Ant fans are waiting!
