Default Better email app

I'd love to see an app that handles html e-mail in an exchange environment (compatible with activesync). The only solution now is Touchdown but that does everything (calendar, tasks, email, contacts). I need a standalone e-mail app. Ideally, it would work inside the default e-mail client.

This would be a very popular app that would bring in actual dollars...

I'm using "timesheet" found in the market and find it very useful.

Default Keyboard Shortcuts

Idea I thought of last night was for some keys added to the top of the virtual keyboard that the user can program to hold their email address or any other often used personal info. it would save a lot fo typing.

Default Create a lock system using hardware buttons.

I know it sounds pretty worthless, but on the hero their are 6 hardware buttons, and if their could be an app that would unlock the phone without having to enter the passcode that would be awesome.
for example the combination of pressing talk twice and menu one would unlock the phone, of course you could create the combination of hardware buttons to unlock the phone.
You would not have to type in the password to unlock it using the hardware button combination to unlock the phone.
So if you were to just press the end key to normally unlock the phone, the phone would wake up and prompt the unlock screen, but if you pressed the combo of hardware buttons you wouldnt have to do that.

Default GPS/Location triggered "to do" list with alerts

I'd like an application that would pop up and alert you for location specific to do lists. For example, say you have a grocery list. You'd go to the grocery store, make sure your GPS was enabled, and set that specific GPS coordinate as I dunno, "grocery store." Then you could make a to-do or shopping list under grocery store which would give you a pop up alert (similar to Hancent SMS pop up text messages/with an option for vibrate+ringtone/notification when you go back to that GPS coordinate. Every time you thought of something you needed you could just add it to your phone, knowing that it will automatically bring it up when you go back to the store. You could have a home to do list that pops up at home, a work one that pops up at the office, and one for anyplace you go. I know I've gone to friends' houses meaning to pick up that book I lent them and only remembered 20 minutes after I left their houses. Or I've gone to my parents' house to fix things and forgotten to do that. This could possibly link to Google Maps.

If only I could code....

barcode scanner that adds to grocery list...

including ability to select "preferred" stores in your area, so that when you scan your peanut butter, it tells you which of the stores you like to go to has the best price, then adds it to the list for that store.

I think the rememberthemilk app does this. I think there is at least one other app that does this, but can't remember the name.

Ah, yes it does, thanks. Danged if I'll pay 25 bucks for it though, but it did lead me to see Astrid+Locale can do the same thing more or less. RtM also doesn't look like you can customize the ringtone eiher. Now all we need is for the android market just had a better search function we'd be golden!

Lightbulb Crowdsourcing app to map cell phone signal strength

Very simple idea - build an app to send your current location and your provider's cell phone signal strength, and create a map like CellReception.com.

Here is an idea:

Application that can store TEXT, IMAGES, AUDIO, and VIDEOS in one single document.

The IMAGES and VIDEOS can be taken using the phone camera or imported from local file.

The IMAGES and VIDEOS will be shown as THUMBNAILS within the document.

User can add TEXT in the document.

User can record audio and shown as ICON in the document.

The application should work OFFLINE, you don't need to store the document online (although this is optional and nice to have).

Why OFFLINE feature is important?
- Because sometimes you cannot go online in certain area
- Because sometimes it will be very expensive to go online (e.g. roaming abroad)

Looks like I am describing somekind of more advanced Microsoft OneNote
Microsoft OneNote can do this but only with IMAGES. If Android can have this application with AUDIO and VIDEOS, that would be incredibly awesome!

PS: Originally, I asked this OneNote "like" application in this thread below:
OneNote

People don't really get computers nowadays. You don't need an "app" to read a story. A story is a text file. Maybe if someone wanted an "app for that", they should get an iPhone. Those gizmos have an actual app called "Lighter" that displays a static picture of a flame. But hey, it's more convenient to install a "Lighter" app than to download the JPG of a lighter and display it with whatever image viewer your phone has.

I understand that full well. and yes, it would be much more convenient to just download an app that has all of the stories and poems collected and ready to read with a couple of taps. after all, isn't convenience what these smart phones are all about?

I was going to suggest the same app! I agree it should be fairly easy since there are MANY websites that use the ACARS system to track planes in flight. And just like you said, GPS, accelerometer, and compass could be used to indicate your position and attitude in conjuction with the ACARS info would give you the aircraft information. The only problem I foresee would be the FAA or Homeland Security frowning on the project. But since you can listen to ACARS with a hand held scanner and decode it with a simple computer program, it makes their objections moot.

I didn't see this listed, so here goes.....

In regards to Google voice, if you are using call presentation to ensure that calls are coming to you via GV, to answer a call you now need to swipe, call up keypad and make your selection. I think a great app would simply bring up the keypad, or better yet a list of GV options immediately after swiping an incoming call. This would benefit most while driving, especially since I don't think BT handsfree would deal very well with speaking "ANSWER" followed by a numerical selection.

A developer who can make an app to track vehicle miles used for business purposes. Not one that uses the GPS but recalls the beginning mileage from the previous day and all the user has to enter is ending mileage. The following items would be great to comply with IRS rules:

* Date
* Beginning Miles (stored from previous day's use)
* Ending miles
* Calculates total miles driven
* A daily amount of expense per mile (computed by current IRS regs - this would need to be changeable since the IRS changes this periodically (currently @ $0.55) but some people would use this for their employer reimbursement tracker and the employer may use a different amount.
* A running total of the amount of expenses earned/incurred
* Destination
* Purpose of trip

Expenses in this app are not necessary, nor gas mileage or when the oil needs to be changed - we need this to comply with IRS regulations for business use of the vehicle.

Here is one example from an old Palm app: Mileage for Palm OS by David Zimmerman

And another updated earlier this year: MileageByTallEric: Updated! for Palm OS by Eric Buess

Here are two WinMo versions:
PocketMileage on PocketGear

Auto Mileage Tracker on PocketGear

These are some ideas and many of us that are required to keep track of this information for IRS and billing purposes would be willing to pay for such an app. So, how about it all you developers - can you give me something like this? I'll beta it for you!

I'd be interested in picking this one up. Thanks for the very detailed description and example apps, that'll make life a lot easier. I'll send you a private message to discuss further.

Default Grocery Shopping list with scanner

I'm a little surprised that no one (that I have found) has combined a grocery list program that uses the scanner. It would be great to scan items in your home as you use them up and have them added to your list. Combine it with online searching for adding the item or manual entry. Then use your list at the store and scan the items to have them crossed off as you put them in the cart. Scan new items in the store and edit the price for keeping track of cost. Then you would know about how much you were going to spend with future lists.

You could easily have it keep track of your shopping ID as well.

Another idea off the top of my head could be lists based on the store you use. When you scan an item off your list, it could give you the option to add the location of the item. Then maybe it could use the info for future shopping to this store and organize your list based on location. Might need to give it an isle number as well.

I know that most stores have barcodes on the shelves for each item. Not sure if this code contains pricing information or not, but it could be useful in keeping up with pricing.

Just some ideas. Wish I knew how to code

Default Want these apps

1. Voice dialing initiated from blue tooth headset by pushing a button without accessing the Droid which can be in a brief case or something.

2. Adjustable or zoomable fonts on Droid.

3. Automatic yahoo or other email provide email account loading software onto the Droid.

4. Instant record of phone conversation - a phone number or address or direction giving by your friend on the phone - while you are talking with him or her.

Hi Rob,

Here's an idea for you... is there an app that can put your phone in "school mode" or "church mode"? You just enter your weekly class schedule, and while you're in class (or church), your phone is automatically switched to silent mode. It switches back to regular ring mode between classes and after classes (or church).

I this has already been done, then I'd love to know how to get it.

Thanks for all your help. Happy new year!

There might already be something out there like this, but here goes:

I'd like a sales app that keeps up with stats on all the calls I make with clients, prospects, everyone. Each time I have a conversation with a given person, it records it in a log (not an actual sound recording. just show that it happened), how long it lasted, and keep up with how often we talk. It would record the frequency of calls and, in a sales context,show how warm the relationship is based of how much we talk.

The ability to organize all my contacts in a network form showing how I met everyone and what the connection is. For example, I just closed on a deal with a client and they provided me with referrals. When i call one of the referrals i could tag them to the original client, so on and so forth out with more referrals from each client. this would allow me to easily view the growth of my business. I could highlight one client/prospect/contact, see how warm our relationship is, edit there info with a needs analysis, basically everything my head tries to keep up with about all my clients.

How would you like to make a million dollars?

Just finish google's job and make a fully functional google docs app. Make it rock-solid and then sit back and collect - I'd easily pay 20 if it was solid.

Like I said, this is nothing crazy, just finish the job google has decided can wait until they make you have to buy a new product from them(their own phone).

Kind of sounds like a Journal. Most PIM apps support a journal with entries like that, IMHO google needs to implement the rest of the ical/vcal/vcard standards, they have fields like that.

I want to see additions to the base OS. All the fields in the vcard, vcalendar, icalendar standards implemented. This would add the anniversary fields for example. Support the X- extensions so additional fields can be added, this would of course require the google web apps to be updated too.

Smile Touchdown does it all

I know there's quite an aversion among some folks to paying for an app, but an iPhone ain't free either, and...
My employer, a health care corporation, has their network locked down as tight as you could imagine. Can't even get in with the default activesynch client. Touchdown does it all: calendar, accept invites, corporate contacts, flag email, to-dos,...Touchdown does it. I love it.

Much though I hate to admit it, Exchange is the de facto standard for corporate email.

Will there be an Android client that will support both email and calendar.

Without this, it will never be suitable for most business users.
And I REALLY dont want to 'have to' buy an iphone....

No idea if this has come up yet, but I'd love something that would make a home inventory for insurance, etc.

The way I see it working - you photograph an item and name it, then fill in details such as price, when and where bought, replacement value, etc. Possibly add additional images and/or pdf files of receipts, etc.

This can then give you a running total of the house contents for insurance, plus a very easy way to work out what may be missing in the event of break-ins, etc.

Even better if it sync'd everything to "the cloud" somewhere, but okay if it just stayed on the SD card.

with all these posts, I may have missed it already, however I would love to be able to speak words, and have a text in response. Then I would be able to text a lot better.

Default Music player

I would REALLY love a new music player app! The default one on the Motorola Droid is a little.. inefficient to me. I don't like that the album art consumes half of the screen and then the song name is all the way at the bottom of the screen. Honestly, I'm more concerned about the name of the song rather than how pretty the album art is. Also, an app to change my music from the default lock screen would be great. I tried Lock 2.0 but its too buggy and does more than I'm looking for.
On a separate note, a multi touch keyboard would be a-badwording-mazing. But I think that that's gotten enough publicity lol.

I'm surprised no one has developed an alternative for the native dialer. I've read in a few forums/blogs abt people saying that its too bland/simple. Maybe it could be replaced/modified to look better with customizable backgrounds, better icons, translucent buttons, shows full screen pics of the caller etc etc.

Default A touch of inconvenience

I agree with siddharth, native dialer is a little less than perfect.
Also,
So I don't know about everyone else, but I think a cool app idea would basically be a way to change your music externally. What I mean is that, when I'm skiing and I come across a song I don't care for or don't feel like listening to, I find it somewhat maddening to have to
stop, take out my Droid, take off my gloves, unlock the screen, open my music app, then click to change the song.
My idea is a simple app that is able to be toggled on and off, which would enable the camera button to be dedicated to pushing the next button on the music. So that I could change a bad song just as easily as I can adjust the volume. I Wouldn't think that this would be a very complex app to make. But I think it would be a wonderful addition to the versatility of this phone . I'd gladly pay a slight fee for such convenience personally.

There are headsets, bluetooth and wired that have music controls built in. You could also setup playlists that only your 'good' songs and play them.

Yes I did actually just make a playlist this weekend, but obviously there's still music I don't always feel like listening to depending on my mood or, more frequently, if id just heard it recently by whatever mean and didn't want to listen to it again haha. I've heard of those headsets also, but have also heard that they're expensive. I had a pair that I used with my psp when I used that for my mp3 player, but when I tried the only control that worked was the volume, I'm assuming because the commands necessary to change songs on droid are different than those used in a psp?

Exclamation Watch Big Brother

I would like to request an app that is inspired by an app that was brought to my attention that’s for the i-phone and i-touch. The app goes by the name of “ecosnoop”, www.ecosnoop.com . What I propose is an app such as “Bigbrother snoop”. The most uneasy feeling one can give bigbrother is to identify him, unclothe him, and expose the robotic works of its control.

From my vantage point this app would likely be a constantly evolving creature possibly having many copycats. What I mean is that at 1st it would be a way for people to record audio, video and photos available for all to see threw a central location (website) and/or threw the app itself. For example people can record the vast network of cameras (shout cameras in England) plotted on google maps to keep the redundancy down to a minimum. The next evolution in programming this app would defiantly be in the organization/user categorization of the collected data. Later there could be a audio/video blogs submitted threw this of what they witness and/or run-ins with the cops. Those being harassed can document that and when the opportunity presents itself can be used to correct the problem. Finally maybe a community for people to network and collect friends (like minded patriots) to combine efforts to keep the man in check, safety in numbers.

Please please take this into consideration, Ill be pushing this idea until it comes true because no is the time. Im not a programmer nor have the resources to make this happen, im only a good idea waiting to happen.

Thank you for your time.

You may want to check out our Executive Assistant app (Executive Assistant (Appventive)). In lock screen mode, EA will allow you to use your music widget while the phone is locked.

EA also allows you preview your gmail, missed calls, SMS messages, upcoming calendar events, and optionally Google Reader and/or Twitter feeds.

Search for Appventive in the Market or scan the qr code in my profile. We offer both a free, ad-supported version and for $1.99 an ad-free version.

If you do give it a try, please let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Steve
