    Ok so I setup an Ipad and Ipod Touch for someone and I have to say, I do like the form factors, but ugh... why oh why do people like the interface of those devices is beyond me... and the "Multitasking" really sucks!

    Well anyway I was going through the setup and downloading apps so I decided to ask... once the palmpad comes out... what apps would you like to see on it? I know of one that I definitely want to see... For me:

    FlipBoard, that thing is amazing!
    Of Course the Nook and Kindle apps
    Video Editing software
    Some Word Editing software would be nice
    Oh and also I would like to see so "PaintBoard" type application

    And for just regular Pre.... oh where oh where is Audible and Shazam

    What do you want to see on the PalmPad? I am so impatiently waiting for it ;-) Can't wait to see it with WebOS

    I like sinsin's list, plus Evernote. Of course, the apps should be scaled to the larger resolution.

    Amen! I think it's dumb that you can only video chat with ppl with the same phone/OS as you. I mean, how annoying would it be if I could only call Samsung's?

    Apple does have something to say about it. And it's entirely possible, but HP would have to pay a fee to do so. I don't know if that would work well.

    I would like to see video app's and games. Like netflix and hulu plus. I would also like to see a bunch of useless apps that no one will ever use. Oh wait, if I wanted that I'd buy an iPhone LOL jk jk. But seriously, I would. I like to download free apps on my iPod to see if I will like them or not.

    Plus DirecTV apps would make my life easier.

    They are fleeing because of a lack of new devices that will actually sell (aka not the Pre 2)

    Once awesome devices are announced with the even more awesome Enyo framework I think developers will be more willing to place their bets that by being early adopters to the Tablet they will secure sales throughout its (hopeful) eventual success.

    Writing an app for a new (well to tablets) platform is like placing a bet, you want to be there first, but you arent entirely certian of the platforms success.

    To video call on 3G between iOS / BB and Android, there are Tango, Knocking Vid, Yahoo and Fring and hopefully wOS in the future.

    Apple made comments about opening up Facetime, they claim it use standard protocols, but a website analyzed the packets, and there are some none standard ports used. However, the ports should not be an issue, lets see if Apple keeps their word.

    I would love to see apps that allow you to play boardgames (ticket to ride, settlers of catan, etc...) against friends. I think that the size of the tablets coming out (10") would be the perfect size.

    I would pay for the following apps on a PalmPad:
    - Text Editor
    - Outliner
    - Spreadsheet
    - Terminal
    - Project Planner (MS Project compatible)

    Let's be generous and assume that interest in developing for the PalmPad at launch will be the same as the interest in developing for the iPad at its launch this past Spring. The iPhone probably had around 100,000 apps when the iPad launched with 5000 custom apps. That's a 20:1 ratio. If webOS can muster, say, 7000 apps when the PalmPad launches then we would expect 350 custom PalmPad apps.

    My guess is that this calculation overestimates the interest among developers in the webOS tablets and that PalmPad users are going to have to be content with running oversize apps designed for the Pre for a while. In order to think otherwise, you would have to believe that the PalmPad will be more popular among Pre/Pixi users than the iPad was among iPhone users. Or, you have to assume that the PalmPad will have some other driver of popularity among the non-webOS-using public which the iPad didn't have.

    Finally, it's possible that HP will pay developers to port their apps but that would probably apply to on a dozen or so developers of the most popular apps like Pandora, etc.
    I took from the OP's initial comments is what we would like to see, not what will the ipad launch with. I base that on this comment from the OP: What do you want to see on the PalmPad?
