Hopefully, this will qualify for a sticky, but after a search for "wishlist" I can't find the usual thread of suggested apps that we can then beg developers for. I'll start.
- Yahoo Greetings app with reminders tied to birthdays from Facebook and other contacts.
- Content Aggregator app (think My Yahoo) designed for Pre screen size that presents TODAY type information (News, weather, sports, RSS feeds) in landscape mode for viewing during my commute.
- Getting things Done app - goes along with my GTD Outlook add-in to help organize my life. Would solve issue of more robust tasks list.
- Market summary app - push summary of certain indices stocks at predetermined time of day along with key economic reports (PPI, CPI, Unemployment) as they are released.
- Linked In synergy - Pull photos from Linked In like Facebook for contacts
- ThinkorSwim app - I'll be begging for this, since they have an iPhone app
- Visual Voicemail app - I just can't stand going in the order received. Please free me from this agony.
- Voice Recorder with Transcription - Either from voicemail file or voice memo sent to online/desktop voice recognition software. Helpful in my work
- Flickr/Picassa app - uploading, categorization and forwarding. I'm sure Facebook app has this.
- Audible.com app - using AudibleAir to stream daily news/magazines - connected to TODAY app
- Bluetooth for everything app - Listen to turn-by-turn, news streams, internet radio, etc. on headset. Boy I'll need another headset charger
- Morse code app - use the screen for morse code - OK, way too geeky, even for me, but would be cool to try.
- Synergy Lockout/Locator app - log in and set device to display individual return instructions if lost. Better yet, use locater app to find exactly where it is.
OK that's enough for now. I'm sure some of these exist on iPhone or even in Pre. I know there are other great ideas out there. Hell, if there's something easy and the SDK is ever available, I can try to build something myself.
