    they released an official digg app today. i've been using a 3rd party app that had some issues. i'm assuming this app will run pretty nicely.

    i prefer to use official apps over 3rd party apps. i'm still waiting/hoping on an official tivo app. i would also love an official nhl app like mlb at bat. maybe a google docs app instead of going into safari. what other official apps are you all waiting on? any others?

    A Netflix App, one that can stream over 3G. Or at least one that had the queue in it.

    I looking for the official Location Free Player app by Sony so I can stream TV to my phone. Location Free player is like Sling box. Currently I can stream to my psp Or laptop. The official app for the iphone would be nice but i doubt it will ever happen.

    The app only shows history for what's been recorded on that phone. I'd like to be able to check goals, challenges, and totals between devices.

    Damn Nike for their Flash Web site!

    Amen! Having the ability to upload runs from your phone would be a good feature also!

    Cox app where I can control DVR. Comcast beat Cox to the punch.

    I don't think you'll see an official TiVo app. They even promote/recommend DVR Remote on the TiVo website.

    • Adium!!!
    • Netflix
    • Domino's (in the US store)
    • NFL like MLB At Bat

    That's all that comes to mind at the moment. Netflix probably won't happen for a while considering they've yet to allow you to be able to remove a user from your account, and they're just now getting around to allowing streaming on a Wii. They don't seem to have the most productive dev team. NFL will likely *never* happen seeing as how they have an exclusive deal with Sprint and I don't see that ending any time soon. Not sure why Domino's isn't in the US store since it's in the AUS store. Could really take or leave that but it'd be nice to have I guess.

    I wish all the sports leagues would do like MLB At-Bat. NASCAR won't because they're totally up the butt of Sprint to the tune of "Sprint Cup." That's sad considering the possibility of apps that could replicate scanners.

    I really wish MLS would do it. It offers online packages and has good packages on TV with ESPN. I would easily pay $10 for audio broadcasts like MLB does. The NBA and NHL could also make a killing on this.

    Upstate Central NY
    NFL Hall Of Fame
    Baseball Hall Of Fame
    NHL (although The Hockey News app ain't bad)
    The Olympics
    The Mustang Ranch
    The FBI
    The David Letterman Show

    I see Mythbusters came out with an official app in the last two weeks. It's getting mixed review though, mostly because of the price ($4?)

    I recommend IM+. It's great, never had a problem with it. Super-easy to use, and great push application.

    Friend of mine uses eBuddy, swears by it.

    I'm in for Netflix App too, I really need one cause every other alternatives of this app definitely doesn't do things right. I wanted to stream online like many other do. :confused:

    Google Voice. I detest Google, but it would be nice to have Voice be a native app, not simply saved as a bookmark on my home screen.

    ...and maybe I'm the only one on this, but I'd much rather be able to remove the official apps (Stocks & Messages, do I really neeeeeeed to look at you and let you waste precious space?) than to have any others available.
