    So that iPhone SDK. Great if you can code. Many of us can't...

    Here are three that would set my heart a-flutter if some talented, benevolent programmer could make

    DJ - seems obvious to me this one - enable DJ facilities with the music onboard the ipod. touchscreen makes precise sound mixing, speed and mixing possible

    Remote Control - There are a few things using bluetooth for remote now - the Mac, Wii, Xbox 360, PS3. A remote control app would rock.

    Shopping list - because i forget things in the supermarket. plus tapping when i've picked thing sup to cross out would help. if it automatically grouped the things i need into categories then would make supermarket visits much quicker.

    Thanks in advance

    Since when did the Wii and XBox 360 start using Bluetooth? (Hint - They don't!)

    FYI - There's already a great WebApp that does this. Granted a native app would rock.

    The WebApp for the shopping list is at http://onetrip.org/onetrip/?pass&go

    Hint, yes the Wii does.

    Back to the OPs original point....

    I'd like to see some music controller app, instead of a native djing app (though that might be nice as well if carefully executed). Something like a mini version of the Jazzmutant Lemur. Maybe connectivity via bluetooth but maybe cabled option too with lower latency.

    Hint - Read the post right above yours.

    Doubt we will see a DJ application like your thinking of.

    Virtual DJ on the mac requires a 1.4 ghz system with > 1gb of ram. Even optimizing the screen and features to two basic 'cd's' onscreen would take much more horsepower i think..

    Ableton Live 6 runs ok on my 800MHz G4 Powerbook with 640MB of ram (say a couple to three tracks), and that app can be fairly demanding. It's definitely possible on an iPhone. Through the SDK can you play protected AACs? ie. is something other than iTunes allowed to play Fairplay DRM protected files.

    Not much a of a stumbling block though really. All my AACs are un-DRMed.

    I was running Baytex Party on my Powerbook G4 550 and it did all the necessary DJ tricks. It also ran fine on a iBook G3 900. Its really just a matter of how efficiently the buffers are programmed.
