    How about having a thread for apps that you'd like to see get developed. My wish list includes

    1) A really good MMS app
    Swirly MMS filled a gap but the interface was a little clunky and retriving MMS messages something of a pain. An all in MMS that allowed you to send, receive and view etc. would be great. It would be great as well if you can attach different files like notes, txt, pictures etc.

    2) A GPS navigation app
    There's some in the works I know, but so far I haven't actually seen anything that really works well. A lot of the current apps that use GPS seem to take forever to update, so a good navigation app would be a bonus.

    3) A profile app
    an app that allowed you to setup different profiles (work, office, home, outdoors etc.) so that you could switch between them at leisure depending on your situation

    I'd like:

    1. something like Customize, I mean i paid for this phone i want to change the way it looks.

    2. GPS would be nice specially since i just moved to a new state for college.

    3. Video this has become available on every phone even the bottom end phones. why can't we have this.

    4. I'd like a app for my bank WAMU. So i could check my balance etc

    5. A chat client for MSN, Yahoo, and a decent AIM. Hopefully Adium or mobilchate will release something.

    6. A decent game. Such as a boxing game. Controls something like that of a wii. Or a nice shooter game.

    well thats my wishlist. i know im not going to get some of those anytime soon, but nonetheless i want them.

    Oh and cut/copy and paste would be nice. that way when i can save my 128 bit password for my wifi in notes and just paste it in the network settings. for some reason my phone doesn't save it. so i end up having to retpye it every day. very annoying.

    Swirly MMS can only work on Jailbroken iPhones. If you want swirly, downgrade to 1.1.4 and jailbreak. Under the terms of the SDK, an MMS App isn't allowed.

    There is a gray space here, the iPhone SDK EULA has a line in it that reads

    If there could be an app that just has two buttons: WiFi on/off and 3g on/off (maybe also usage)
    that would be really useful, but apparently it's not allowed to make a program like that, i'd like to know why

    an app to turn my ipod touch into a wireless usb dongle. i hate having to use my mb as a modem for my desktop

    if apple can make the itms only work via wifi and not 3g, i would imagine that this could also be done soley over wifi to avoid the whole netshare problem with att

    Apps that sync!

    What I'm really waiting for is apps that sync with desktop data.

    1. Office-like app for the iPhone (think "Documents to Go")

    2. Comprehensive financial portfolio management (think "Quicken")

    Others: (may require SDK 3.0 or later)

    A. General "conduit manager", where any data could be synched via USB (why does the current SDK support WiFi sync, but not USB?)

    B. App to create pages of icons on desktop, and sync to iPhone (ideally with hierarchy/nesting of pages)

    C. a File Manager (Finder) for iPhone -- see what is where, and search for data across entire folders (like Spotlight)

    D. Utility to repair data corruption on iPhone (like DiskWarrior)

    1. Former Docs To Go users, please visit http://www.dataviz.com/customerservice/iPhone_support.html and make sure that DataViz knows you want this for the iPhone (at this time they are saying they are NOT working on an iPhone version but might consider it if there is enough demand so lets show them there is demand!!!)

    2. SplashMoney for iPhone sux out loud... I loved it for Palm but it is worse than useless on the iPhone... When they finally released the desktop sync software they warned to limit your transactions to like that last year (I had 4 years in my Palm with no problems)... I did that and it was still dog-slow until I limited it to like a month on my two high-activity accounts...

    As if that wasn't bad enough, I brought my Palm version transactions over to my Mac and synced w/ iPhone with no trouble... Tried syncing with a Windows PC and it randomly subtracted a penny from some of my tranactions so the total was off on my two big accounts... Went through line by line and fixed the transactions on the PC (everything was fine on the iPhone but even an iPhone overwrites desktop sync did not fix the desktop) and everything was fine for a little while... Imported more transactions on the Win desktop and synced with iPhone and I was 3 cents off in each account again... I give up, how can you use a financial application that randomly changes the amounts in your transactions??
