    The first one is a Craig's List app. I'll pitch this idea to the Craig's List crew as well, but if someone could make an app that can browse Craig's List's stuff that would be awesome.

    The second app I'd like to see made is an app for People's United Bank. People's United Bank is a smaller bank chain in the Connecticut/Massachusetts/Rhode Island areas, but I think it'd be cool to have a People's United Bank app, since there's already a similar app out for one of the competing banks, i.e. Bank of America.

    ...and finally...

    The third app I'd like to see made is some sort of Mobile Skype. Yes I know Windows Mobile phones and devices have a Skype already, but a true Skype on the iPhone would be awesome, even if it were to only function in the vicinity of a WiFi hotspot...

    Comments on any of those?

    would love to see an AT&T account info app, more card games, and the Horrible Van Remote from the Dr Horrible Sing-Along Blog videos.

    I can dig the Craigslist and Skype apps, too.

    A work around for the at&t app right now is PageOnce, it shows minutes, data, text, amount due, due date, etc, great app even if this is all you are using it for.

    What would be even better is if AT&T would format their "My Wireless" website to recognize if you're on an iPhone and feed a page design that's formatted for the iPhone screen.

    Then, bookmark that page on the home screen and you're good to go. This is even better than an app (for this purpse) since they can change it without sending you an update.

    Unfortunately, their website DOESN'T do this at the moment, so I guess your suggestion is our best bet right now.

    I use pageonce for ATT info also. My app wishlist consists of two (at the moment):

    -I would like an app that streams Leo from from http://twitlive.tv just because I'm a TWiT. Just audio would be great.

    -I'd also like to see an app that finds geocaches near me and plots them on a google map using http://geocaching.com 's database.

    There are probably others but those are the two that come to mind.

    There's a new site I found for small contract programming jobs: http://codesnap.com/

    I don't know if there are any iPhone developers there, but there might be.

    I really need a Skype app and I would love to see a universal remote app with a small infrared transmitter that plugs into the headphone jack. Similar to what griffin's Total Remote did on pocket pc's a few years back. I would probably buy an ipod touch just for that.

    Well since I started this thread just about a week ago, a Craig's List app was released for $0.99. I got it, and it runs really slow and it needs work in other areas as well.

    I have another app I'd like to see written: an MTA schedules app. Who here lives in CT (Fairfield County) or NY (Westchester County/Putnam County areas)? I do, as their mobile version of www.mta.info SUCKS. I'd think having an app that taps into the same db as the web-based app would be beneficial.
