    Personally I love how easy it is in webos to delete the whole word and start over, the curser doesnt even have to be at the end of the word. Pretty sure I can do that faster than the magnifying glass thing most of the time.

    And if its to delete a series of words, forget about it. Webos destroys them faster than you can think magnifying glass. You pick your poison I guess

    Some good ideas here. The beauty of WebOS is its simplicity. If we add too much, it wont be WebOS? (thats aquestion)

    My list:

    1. Bluetooth file transfer

    2. Proper contact groups

    Not sure if you're being sarcastic, but let's just say there is a difference between simpicity and missing functionality. A calculator is a simple computer. Oh sure, I can input 07734, turn it upside-down and communicate, but that doesn't make it a text messaging device.

    Sure there is thing or two here and there, but you have to admit that with the simplicity of webos it does a lot more easily than some other systems. I don't think any sarcasm was intended.

    Plus if the things that are missing are more important to you than webos then one can always switch to another platform as some have done.

    Yes, you're right. No hard feelings intended.

    great points everyone. Let me add this:

    + Exhibition Mode: Be able to disable it or at least allow the screen to auto power off!


    having to either a) disable notification, b) put in airplane mode, c) having to press the power button every time the screen decides to turn on is annoying.

    Exhibition mode is good for showrooms, not so much in bedrooms

    A vote for Bluetooth mouse support on TP.

    Heck, on Pre 3 too.

    -Tasks and Memos apps: WebOS should have real apps out of the box. Not the jokes we natively have.

    -For those of us WITH ActiveSync, the protocol needs to either support Tasks/Memos, or, the above-mentionned tool should be available to fill in the gap.
    -Universal search. Including all PIM data.
    I just made my next dentist appointment this morning....flipping through 6 monthly views was suprisingly slooow....it insisted on loading the appointment data before it would let me move on to the next month. (I think I've found a better way, now, but I have UberCalendar).

    Tasks are so incredibly broken I've virtually had to stop using them. I live in Outlook all day and have ActiveSync. It is incredibly frustrating to not be able to use my tasks like I used to.....no category, no reminder time, and no repeat, and if you update a task with any of those features from your phone, all those features are now gone from that task.

    PIMS are where Palm truly excelled....it is so sad the compromises they made for Synergy to work. If it isn't possible to have all the Exchange features and still do the Synergy thing, then we should have a stand-alone app that specifically works....completely....with Exchange.

    The wish list here is getting nearly as long and diverse as webOS users .... good luck prioritizing it!

    WebOS:
    - fonts: larger glyph set for displaying and typing more alphabets (first few Unicode blocks up to and including IPA with diacritics; also Arabic, Indic scripts), method for installing new fonts
    - email: threading, better folder management
    - messaging/phoning: simultaneous text and video, other video services
    - PalmOS PIM features :)
    Future webOS devices:
    - full Bluetooth support for file transfer and (tablets) all phone brands
    - full USB functionality including external storage, printer, keyboard/mouse
    - video out
    Essentially, should be able to do what a netbook can do.

    I'd go one step further and have the calendar entries for birthday events tell the person's age as well. My Timex watch does this, and it's the only device I've ever seen do such an obvious thing.

    I know it is a pretty new Software, but rather than having to trust all personal data (addresses, calendars, etc.) to google, storing the own data in an ownCloud would be great.
    For those who don't know what I am talking about:

    www.owncloud.org and www.owncloud.com.


    so, a ownCloud-Client for webOS would be great (as a Synergy Service)

    - Synergy for ownCloud


    That would be cool.

    #1 on my wishlist is full support for the webOS phones out there - all the open sourcing is currently only discussing Enyo, a framework that only partially works on my Pre3. I'm hoping for a fully functional, open-source Pre3 at the conclusion of this transition. So, regardless of what it requires, I'm hoping for upgrades/updates to keep my webOS-based phone in the loop =)

    If you like my patches or have found them to be helpful to you, please consider donating here for the time I put into making them.
    - All my programming is done in my spare time, so any donations help motivate me to spend more of my limited time on webOS.

    This thread is just great!
    After the full release of WebOS a new web site will be made dedicated to development and improvement. The site will be linked to WebOSNation's forum so all users here will not need to produce an extra login ID.
    There will be available on the site tutorials and developers who are willing to instruct newbies in coding for WebOS. They will be ranked by other users and be provided a badge to distinguish themselves educators, developers, whatever.
    An important feature of the site will include a voting system to prioritize improvements. Each developer profile will carry their own badge/link to their paypal (etc) account for donations. Many developers may decide to work on the same project, whether together or alone so donating to a project isn't as effective as donating to the developer of your choice.
    Lastly, as we have encountered before, there will be provided a section of suggested applications by users. A wishlist, with its own voting system and flags. Comments will be allowed under each project so that everyone may share ideas on the feasibility and value of the proposed application. This website should be easily reached through any device on any platform.

    That is my wishlist for WebOS, a fully customizable, user-controlled OS. For the people, by the people.
