Default Post Your App Idea

What Android Application, if created, would make your mobile dreams come true? Please nothing ridiculous like, "you press a button and an uber hot chick pops out of the battery pack and is automatically in love with you."

Lets hear them!

I'd love an Android application that could allow you to use your phone as a remote control to change television stations. That would be SIIIIICK. Problem would be if you can go into someone else's house and change THEIR stations.

I think the "receiver" would need to be bluetooth enabled since I don't see phones being able to send infrared signals anytime soon. I guess the key here is actually having a RECEIVER that has the technology. The application is probably the easy part.

How cool would it be if you could use your phone to take video that automatically streams - and is saved to - your account on a website? People could browse by users, locations, etc... and see who is currently "phonecasting" video and watch them live.

This could be crazy if people take their phones into sporting events, concerts, etc... and you can browse streams by location... you could potentially pinpoint events going on and see video streams from people filming at the event with their phone.

Pretty crazy if you ask me. And very doable.

So you're walking along... but wouldn't mind hopping on a bus, catching a metro, jumping in a cab, etc... what is the QUICKEST or CHEAPEST way from point A to B?

This app would list all your options with distance, time, price and more. Supposing you select "bus" it would then help you navigate to the closest bus stop. It might also alert you to where the closest cab is or even connect you directly to a cab company who would instantly come to the GPS location referred to them.

When you buy something, you scan the receipt and can manage your expenses and accounting OH so easily. You'd also have permanent records if the IRS comes knocking on the door.

As you're on your trip you take pictures, type using a full qwerty keyboard, etc... and a LIVE journal is kept with features such as GPS location, time of input, etc to create a more dynamic "live journal"

Actually this just sounds like posting to wordpress from your phone with your location auto-filled via GPS hahahaha not really that exciting.

Wow that is an AMAZING idea. Make it and sell it to H&R Block! Or TurboTax! It would also be cool if you could scan a barcode in a store and your Android Phone would tell you how far away you would have to go to get a better deal on the same thing.

I don't use public transportation much so I think VZNavigator already does everything I need. But probably not a bad idea for tourists and public transpo people.

I think I just read about the iPhone being used as some type of remote control copy other devices in the near future. It HAS to be possible... I'm positive I saw it.

An App Called "Employ Me" Where you could just walk around places and it would show you the closest places that were hiring and you could filter it by things like FT/PT, pay, experience, line of work, etc...

Unemployed? Walk out your front door and find the closest job possible!

Yeah its possible but for tv's and stuff the phone needs an IR sensor... Not sure my iphone has one or its at least hidden among the light/proximity sensor. Dont get me wrong... How cool would that be! I would love it! I want my android phone to literally do everything for me! Not that i ask the world or anything

If the phone could really do anything, they should call it the "Belvedere" as in "Mr. Belvedere".

Screw the Dream, I want the HTC Belvedere! Fetch me dinner, Belvedere phone!

Default Take a look at Livecast

www.livecast.com

Livecast is company providing the living streaming and let users to upload their streaming files to their distributed worldwide web servers. Instread of peer to peer live streaming, it supports broadcasting: phone to phones, phone to PCs, and PC to Phones.

I was supposed to port our Livecast application on GPhone. But it seems Android has not provided the Live streaming API. I hople they could provide the access to the Stream Encoder so that I could complete my project asap.

Isn't that blasphemy? Microsoft Photosynth and Google Android? :P

Actually, that would be really awesome. Photosynth sounds very interesting. Unfortunately, I'm not a creative MS dev. I write code, not design. "Pretty" is a nice-to-have feature for me. :P

Default More phonebook ideas

I would like to see more stats kept for phonebooks

Longest calls?
How many sms/phonecalls/emails sent to a person?
How many contacts have I never contacted?
Who do I call less than once a month?

All call information could be dumped into a tiny database and the sorted on demand.

There was an interview with one of the two guys at Google, I can't remember if it was Larry or Sergei, but they talked about how several years from now, you'll be able to walk into a store, look at an item, put that item's product code into Google, and it'll give you a price comparison on that item for every retail outlet in a 10 mile radius. I'd really love to see stuff like that. Android would be more like a tri-corder from Star Trek than a phone at that point.

"There are not one, but two, apps that basically do the same thing: compare prices and save us money. Using the camera, you can "scan" the barcode of an item by snapping a picture. The app will then comparison shop for you. You can read online reviews and even create price alerts if the price drops. CompareEverywhere also lets you use the GPS to find nearby stores and then call them directly."

Talking Business and Androids

So the device doesnt end up being as misunderstood and in the end powered down as B-4; it HAS to have an MS exchange client.

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....

Not quite as advanced as what I want, but still, pretty useful. I didn't know they were already doing that with Android though.

Default Child Finder

What about a app that syncs up with those child finder devices that tell you the general direction of your child, example is the duracell commercial with the mother in the park and loses her son.

But with android you dont just get a arrow telling which way to go , you get to "see" through google maps where the child is. Possibly a how far in feet/meters, and a compass. This could also be used to know were other members of your family are, similar to the whole "Where you at" idea that , I can't remember their name, company had.

This app could also be used with things like onstar, except that it wouldn't just be for your car. In a emergency you could press a panic button that would tell 911 were you are at.

what do you think?

I'm 99.9999% sure one of the Android Developer Challenge Winners had a feature that does this in their application. It was a general family protection/safety app and seemed like it covered all the bases for parents.

But remember, to know where your kids are they'll have to be carrying an Android Phone too... on them.

I said it in another thread, but first off, shoutcast would be cool. Since the phone will be forever connected to the net.

Secondly, a skype app (I KNOW someone is plottin this already)

Let me think, I know there are some gamers out there (I am one of them) possibly some type of app that lets you know release date, tracks acheivements and trophies

And finally, I don't know if it was mentioned but a RSS app would be cool too,


I wonder if you can connect to Hulu on that phone? That would own on those trips to work for me.

I'd love to see an AIM/MSN/Yahoo IM client that uses GPRS/EDGE/3G instead of our SMS message bucket. Having to pony up and additional $10/mo ($120/year) for unlimited texts kinda sucks.

What would make it even better is to have a component that would allow you to provide your own backend proxy services. Essentially, your computer at home would connect to AIM/whatever and your G1 would connect to your computer. That way you always show up as being online, even if your G1 drops into a no coverage area. While you are not connected, your home computer could queue up messages that would get delivered when you get back into a service area. Conversely, you'd be able to "send" messages when you are in a no coverage area, they'd be queued up and sent out when you got back into a coverage area.

In other words, extremely similar to how the sidekick works, it's just that you provide the backend server, rather than tmobile.

Default Desktop Sync

The developers at the launch party said there will be NO desktop sync with the G1. We need a thorough, yet easy way to get our current Contacts, Tasks, Mail, Calendar from our current handset to our new G1. I like the idea of "cloud" syncing but how will we do this?

We need a fool-proof app to sync!

Heck yeah!

I can't stand using MS Office, but I do because my smartphone is MS 6.1. And all my contacts are now backed up in Outlook.
I'm sure there is SOME way of syncing them to Gmail Contacts?!

A news ticker of events happening locally and a setup that allows alarms for certain events you want to go to.

Ex. I heard In n Out is having its 60th anniversary on Oct 22 (Yes I know G1 DAY! But I'm not sure if it's true) and will be serving Burgers for super cheap. I think around 15 - 50 cents or something like that. Anyways, an example would be that the G1 would have this event on a reel somewhere and I could set an alarm for this, which it will remind me. The GPS will help me find out which is the closest location and so on.

If anyone else understands what I'm saying pleas help me out.. otherwise sorry if I lost you haha.

I think a good app idea is to attach an app that uses the barcode scanner to create and confirm a registry(bridal & Baby). You could scan items in and when people get em they can scan them out.

OH YEAH!!!
Great idea!

I hope some developer reads this *cough* someone? *cough* please? *cough*

Maybe even add things to an Amazon Wishlist? NewEgg?
Could even shop and compare, and if the price IS cheaper on Amazon/NewEgg/insert-fave-online-merchant-here, create a wishlist?!

Interesting idea...

There was an article on CNN today about a new service. It's aimed at teen drivers and essentially turns off their phone any time they are moving at "car speeds". While I can see a lot of problems with the concept (what if they are a passenger, on a bus, etc....) it is an interesting idea.

The article talks about it being developed as a service from providers for something like $10-20/month but I bet you could build the same functionality into an android phone as an application.

I'm not sure if this is possible but I think a Radio tuner would be nice. Listen to music without sticking anything to the phone or car.

Personally, I would like to see a software KB, just as aan alternative to sliding up the [excellent] hardware KB all the time - say, for instance, quick jabs back for SMS messages, etc.

Lets see....

I want a port of...
Inkscape.
GIMP.
Vice - Commodore 64 Emulator.
VLC

And if you REALLY want to blow my sox off.... Art of Illusion 3D modeler.

And of course... an Office suite close to OpenOffice.

If I got all that.... I could probably ditch my PC!!!

I seriously look into 'Staying connected' to EVERYTHING from my Mobile device so I am hoping I wont have to rely on Webapps for Twitter, Facebook, Pownce, etc. Even a SocialThing! type of app would be amazing. I just want to see these native on the platform

that is the money shot.
Great idea.

Unfortunately most companies these days don't post their location...Or you can't just walk in looking for a job..

Expect you are talking about Burger King.

But I see how this can work.

Talking

How bout a ***** Magnet?
Quote:
Borat: A man yesterday, tell me if I buy a phone I must buy one with a ***** magnet.
Car Dealership owner: He means a phone that women like.
Borat: Yes, but where do you keep this magnet?
Car Dealership owner: [interrupts] No. There's no magnet he just means the phone. Women love the Gee Ones. It's a new phone released by T-Mobile and Google.
Borat: Do this have a ***** magnet?
Car Dealership owner: No. The phone itself would be a magnet.
Borat: If I give you good price, will you please put in ***** magnet?

Default App idea: Records what you say and types it down!

Hey i'm just throwing another idea out there. How about a program that records your voice and writes down what you say?? Maybe as a text or in an email while your are driving(for those who would rather NOT talk to the person)I figured maybe it can have a dictionary stored which includes pronunciations with every word so I'm wondering if this is feasible? I'm sure it will run into problems with some wprds that aren't in the dictionary and for some with a accent...Maybe take it a step further and have it translate what you say into another language?! I'm sure that would be easy once the app had what you said written. Again I'll note this might already be in production or it might be years away from being a possibility. What do you think?

Red face Call blocker/ rejector

Ok, I do not know about the rest of you, but I am frankly tired of the "Unidentified" calls and then of course the calls that you do not want to accept, such as old girlfriends etc and they continue to contact you. Most cell phones do not have the option to block a number from contacting you. I would love the ability to block certain numbers, unidentified or anonymous numbers and only take the calls I desire to take!

Default Shopping Tracker

Take that app that lets you compare product prices by taking pictures of the bar code (smartshop or something like that?) and let it simply track your purchases while you're in a store. You tell it what store you're in, and as you throw things into your shopping cart, you first take a picture of the bar code and then tell it how many you're buying. It should be able to track sales tax, etc.

It should also have a mode where you can use items in your pantry, or items from online databases, to build a shopping list. Bonus if you can tell it, over time, where in the store that item is located, so that when you come back for future shopping trips, it will order your shopping list accordingly. That way you don't have to hunt back and forth from aisle to aisle to make sure you got everything on your list (nor will you have a bunch of missed items at the end of your trip, forcing you to go back through the store to find them), nor do you have to scan through your list to make sure you got everything from the current aisle.

Default Bluetooth App

Someone just wrote an interesting app for Maemo (Nokia's linux for its N810 "internet tablet") called BlueMaemo.

I'd modify it as follows:

1) doesn't currently work with Mac OS X -- add that.
2) add support for remote devices that support Bluetooth BIP (specifically, the ability of a BIP device to remotely display its screen).

Now you can remotely display another device's screen on your Android device, and use your keyboard to type on it, and use your screen as a trackpad for it.

And, one more: make it so that Android can support Bluetooth HID and BIP as well, so that you can port that app to run on Windows/Mac/Linux, and remotely control your Android phone from your desktop or laptop computer.
