    I'd like to see Apple add a remote control application. It would be cool to control a TV with the iPod Touch.

    I don't think it does, but it would be cool if it had one.

    Wifi would be the way to do it maybe using something similar to VNC. Also I would love to see an ebook reader that can do PDFs, that would be very nice.

    I'll keep it simple for Apple... Stock, weather, notes, maps, and an editable calendar. Straight from the iphone.

    I'll pay for each one through iTunes... I just want to be able to get these apps.

    A simple financial tracker - a micro Quicken of sorts.

    If I can add calendar appointments, jot/draw/paint notes, and have an IM client app rather than having to rely on a web-based app for IM, then it would be perfect. I'm completely willing to pay extra for these features too, Apple just needs to make them available.

    And how about the 6.3 billion people who don't live in a country where the iPhone is for sale? Even if it were for sale, it's got half the storage. Hell, on top of that it's useless as a phone for me, since it doesn't have 3G.

    What I absolutely want that I would use all the time are: Mail and Notes (both of which are on the iPhone). I'd like to have the other iPhone apps such as Maps, but those two are the ones I would use all the time. I just wished that they included it in the touch. I would even pay for them (even though its a little rediculous). The least they could do is allow us to pay for them. I mean, are we asking for too much? I don't think so!

    You can control iTunes + your whole system with it just like the remote it comes with. It's done over WiFi:

    http://code.google.com/p/telekinesis/

    VERY neat web-program, that isn't a hack (so it works with 1.1.1). I love it - best web-app every made. It does a lot more than just being a remote.

    ti-83 calculator emulator.

    Then I could whip out my iPod in math class and have a touch screen calculator.

    well maybe not an emulator but an actually program that can do everything.

    That'd probably make me buy it, as an unlocked iPhone seems increasingly harder to come by. By the time it gets to Asia, Apple will have pissed off more customers and I wont want to be in the sort of position where my phone will stop working.

    I'd like to see some sort of streaming to Airport Express or to/from iTunes, or maybe even from iPod to iPod.

    Also an app just like YouTube, except it plays Quicktime movie trailers (as the :apple:tv does now).

    Games might be fun, and I'd take / pay a small fee for mail, editable calendars, better calculator, weather, as others have said.
