    Now that iPhone 4 is out. Let's get back to making things happen for our magical device. It's feeling neglected. More killer apps please.

    So instead of all the iOS developers, Apple should make more "killer" apps?

    It would be nice to see proper treatment of the Mac Pro and iMac too.

    I've mentioned this before, as the available apps made for the iPad are seriously lacking. It's almost as if the developers were waiting for something else to work with...maybe 512MB?

    Lacking how?

    The software dev kit has only been available since the end of January...

    I've heard, and hope it is true, that the more robust apps should be expected August/September. The SDK has been available, but the hardware hasn't. And no one is going to design and release a robust app without having physical hardware to test it on.

    The thought crossed my mind after a Dev told me he will not update his app until the 4 was out.

    I think this is the problem. iPhone apps come out left and right. iPad apps (and I've spent a nice sum of cash on them) are good, but seem to be missing a little something. I think when iOS 4 comes, it'll be better. No developer wants to develop an app, then have to turn around and re-do it once iOS 4 hits a few months later.

    Lacking in selection alone. This is supposed to be a great 'gaming' platform, much more so than the iPod Touch or iPhone, yet we've only seen rehashed versions of iPhone games. It's been 6 months, and you'd think that you would at least see advertisements for what is to come, but really nothing is out there.

    I'm thinking that the developers were holding off until the new OS4 arrived, as many of the games are supposed to be cross platformed between the iPad and iPhone. This is where Apple needs to get these devices more in-synch if they want to maximize the app offering potential.
