Ok this is a platform-agnostic question (iphone/android/BB/WP7) so what kind of app can you imagine loving that doesn't exist yet? Something you've thought "man I could really use an app that does _____ "

If I could think of such an app, I'd be making money from it already (by having someone else code it for a percentage, etc). :D

For me is the app that is preventing me from saying my phone is perfect...a freaking working Wii Remote Bluetooth app for my Galaxy S! :mad:

Ventrilo app for iPhone. Ventafone was removed from the app store due to violations so there is no current app.

Some way to stream a desktop to a mobile/pda, not current remote desktop methods (not designed for this). More like Microsoft's Remote FX and Onlive's service, which are fast enough for gaming even. Of course this would need support from both ends, but I would love to be able to remotely control a more powerful desktop in this manner.

I want an app that will show me what sports games are on TV at any given moment, the scores of those games, and what channel they are on for my TV. Without taking 15 clicks to do it.

I have TWC and the UI for the cable box is probably the worst thing ever created, plus it doesn't list games that are already on TV, its completely useless. For example if if you check Sports -> Football listings at 1PM on a Sunday, it will show the Sunday games. If you check that same thing at 2PM, it will like NO GAMES. Then it doesn't even let you go back to 1PM to see what games started at 1PM. Its like it was designed by people that never actually used it to watch TV :mad: Trying to browse though some college or pro football games is basically impossible the way they have it setup.

I know that it's something that can't be done via the appstore (probably would have to be done on the cydia store), but I'd kill for an app that will allow me to set the sound priority per application.

For instance, if I'm listening to XM radio or something and decide that I want to play a game, most apps will take control of the iphones audio and kill the XMradio application (or atleast, mute it). Some games/apps are programed to be used with background audio, but not many of them are. An application or tweak that would allow XM to keep the highest priority (or any app that you select for that matter) for the audio device would be really handy.

I'd also really like some sort of app that can allow me to monitor my PC's system specs. Temps, clocks, voltages, fan speeds, etc

for me it would definitely be netflix streaming to my phone.. I have the power in the device & unlimited data, so it really bothers me that the hard parts are ok, but the damn software doesn't exist.

I'm still just waiting for Peggle on Android :mad:. iPhone has had it forever now. Netflix Streaming would be cool too (I have a feeling it would be restricted to WiFi only though, 4G at best).

I was only aware of the iPad having a Netflix streaming app. But I see the iPhone and WP7 has it now too.

I'm sure it's possible, I just didn't think the carriers would like it. Like how Android doesn't let you upload Youtube vids over the carrier (I have to be on WiFi on my Droid). Even if they didn't restrict it, I don't think it would work well over 3G at least with decent quality video. I can't even watch HQ Youtube vids over 3G.
