    Ok recently I've been picking up the books, and doing my research on C-Code to learn how to code an iPhone app. I need one thing though, and that is an idea. If anyone knows of an app they really would like to see please tell me. Give me as many ideas as possible.
    Thank You

    I would like an app that makes it easier to find names on the Vietnam Wall in Washington DC. I am a volunteer and an app like that would make it so much easier to help visitors find a loved ones name. The web page www.thevirtualwall.org is great but but hard to navigate on the small screen
    thanks

    I used this app for android called "Easy Reminder". I know it's not possible with the limitations of iOS, but this little app gave you reminder chimes for texts, emails and missed calls. It was fully customizable. You could specify the amount of time between notifications, the number of notifications, chose any ringtone and specify a silent time. Dream on I guess.

    Adobe Flash.
    A competing web browser that allowed photo uploading.
    A bluetooth file transfer app that allowed transfers between any bluetooth compatible device, not just iOS ones.

    Swiftkey. Had it on Android and it's much better than the built in keyboard on iPhone.

    Also, Google Navigation. I've tried several of the paid GPS apps through Apple and Google Nav has them beat in terms of price and usability/accuracy.

    I like the photo upload ability idea and the easy reminder app but it looks like neither are possible right now.

    Make an app to customize the phone. I don't want to be notified on recent calls/only voice mail. I want the phone to open in contacts whenever I hit the phone icon. An option for continued beeps for voicemail would be nice.

    Agreed, although it's never gonna happen :p

    I'd like it if the Music App could support queueing songs too..

    An Old Chicago World Beer Tour app. My boss has one on his Android phone. It's about the only thing he can hold over my head that his phone can do but mine can't.

    Google Music Beta. And Google Maps Navigation.

    Only 2 things that make me want to switch to Android (although I'd never do it)
