    i've been a palm treo user, then windows mobile user until finally switching to the iphone. the iphone is by far the best platform i've used, but there are some programs that i had on the windows mobile device that i miss. what apps do you want to see or miss from previous phones?

    apps i wish to see on the iphone:

    - magicall : rules based call and sms filtering. i used to be able to pick up
    and hang up based on phone patter (like all 800 calls)... or make it go
    directly to voicemail without any intervention.
    http://www.mobiion.com/magicall.html

    - pocket informant : i think i've seen their website and the are working on an
    iphone version

    - some kind of network utility that allows me to do pings, etc...

    - phonealarm : phone profiles, custom alarms for sms, email, etc. also
    something that allows it to remind me that i missed a text message, or a
    voicemail. right now, unless you constantly are looking at your iphone, you
    may not know you missed a call. so simple beep every 5 minutes up to
    5 times would be cool. (as an example)

    iwork certainly would be nice. I wouldn't use it but know some friends that could.

    I imagine Apple must be making some major apps like this because there is nothing left to do with the hardware. If they don't make some major software improvements the iPhone will be yesterdays news soon.

    Not possible in the App Store unless Apple themselves makes it.

    What productivity app should I develop?

    I was thinking of doing a to do list manager, but I already found one I like.

    I'd like to develop something in my spare time. So what should I make?

    Word, works whatever but I need a wp.

    A slide to call slider which can me configured to call somebody when you slide to unlock so you slide to call so and so. There could be several sliders set up eg more slide to calls of slide to email etc.

    It's too diddly to make a call particularly when driving

    I would really love to see an app that emulates the original ipod interface, well at least 3rs Gen. iPod interface with the click wheel....

    ...I know it seems silly but i think it would be cool....

    :D:D:D

    A simple map app where you can place virtual place pins of places (states and countries) you've been to and ones where you plan to go next.

    Both of those are impossible using the current SDK.

    A fitness app

    that you can customize workouts according to your goals...that doesn't have a monthly subscription fee.
    If I wanted a monthly fee, I would hire a personal trainer. :D

    In the app:
    -You would be able to set up workouts, with sets/reps targeted to different body specific areas.
    -Charts to moniter progress/timeline
    -maybe a sister app, or calorie intake integrated into it to show effectiveness of workouts...or work with setting up the workouts, according to how many calories you need to burn.

    I may be a slight picky...but i never know what to do once i get to the gym. :eek:

    Personally am really looking forward to Pocket Informant oming out. I've been using it on my Blackjack II since January and I think it'll be a great addition to the iPhone.

    I would also like to see an app that can edit or create Office or iWork documents. I wouldn't be surprised if the people that make Documents to Go are working on something. If they are, that'll be great.

    That is a hardware feature. The SDK is not a hardware feature.

    I would like to see an app that lets you change the background of the ipod. It probably won't happen I know, but a girl can dream.
