    What apps do you wish existed for the iPad that either currently don't exist or don't have good versions available yet?

    Imagine an app where you could have your Ipad as an extension of your keyboard as a controler for games, mmorpg's etc
    It would connect to your pc/mac and could be mapped to mimick keyboard bindings.
    There would have customisable buttons, you could label these as you wish, maybe you want a line of 8 buttons to select 8 different weaopans, all labelled appropriately, maybe even a customisale ui or skin.

    thats what I want! then I can play star trek online and feel like a proper geek :p

    There's two things I want right now:

    1. Streaming my itunes library over 3g to my iPad. I have a terrabyte of music at home and would love to be able to stream it on the road.

    2. A remote access app that is simple to use and allows me to control my home macbook from the road. It needs to have audio functionality as well. It seems like there's a lot of good ones, but none do everything I want.

    That's what I got so far.

    I know my wife wouldn't mind having iWeb on her ipad. Thats all she uses her macbook for really. I did leave some feedback on Apples site.

    It's not a native app, but the Subsonic music server has a couple of iphone apps available. Requires a donation to get the yourname.subsonic.com and purchase of either iSub or Z-Subsonic (both $4.99) and a little setup time, but I've been thrilled with it.

    It was pretty upsetting when Simplify Media went down/was acquired by google, but i've actually been happier with Subsonic.

    An app that can view CAD files (IE .dgn or .dwg) and use iTunes to drop files onto the iPad. Then I wouldn't have to carry around a roll of engineering prints everytime I go out to the field.

    A robust database program - like Bento but programmable

    Official iPad apps for Twitter, Facebook, Mint, and Navigon

    Korg Kaossilator for iPad... Youtube the Kaossilator if you have no idea what I'm talking about

    A scrapbook app with very elaborate customization that can be transferred to a mac and back.

    Something like Filebrowser but supporting SMBv2, AFP and NFS. Current version uses still the old SMB implementation and therefor rather limited in speed.

    A simple way to share your files between apps.

    An iTunes app that would be supported by a local iTunes server version where music, videos, apps etc can be synced, streamed without having to connect to a MAc or PC.

    Ditto this. My desktop computer is in my basement "office," and I rarely go down there except to sync my iPhone and iPad. (I hate to sync to the laptop, the computer I primarily use, because I'm worried more about theft and/or failure.)

    Autocad WS is a free app that opens .dwg files. Unfortunately files can only be uploaded from the autocad WS website. Buzz saw is also a free app that can read dwf. But you need to have access to a buzz saw website.
