Use the delicous bookmarks extension for Firefox tag all of your favorite sites (i.e. I have "finance" for my banking, and 401k and "school" for my college's website and APA guidelines etc.)
Then download beelicious from the market on your phone, it puts all of your saved tags then you click on it and it shows you all of the saved sites for that tag. I love delicious, if someone tells me about a website at work, I save it then I can view it at home or on my phone.

I wish I could have background stationery for my phone's e-mail, I tried searching it, but I guess there's no apps for that... yet...I guess I am just a girly girl who likes everything fancy and decorated LOL.

I have a feature I would love to see - SOLAR CELLS!!!

Stick some solar cells along the periphery of the screen to supply the battery with supplemental power while the phone is in operation. this should extend the life of the battery considerably. The technology exists for embedding miniature cells in devices. For example, Citizen uses it in most of their watch line today (that's what eco-drive is).

With all the demands put on smart phone batteries, I'm surprised that such a supplemental power system has not been tried. As I see it, this would be especially beneficial on Tablets.

A better battery system would be better as the battery's don't last that long on smart phones.

A good equalizer in music player.
A notepad application pre-loaded with OS.
3D gallery shows high resolution images blurry. Need to be fixed. Its very embarrassing that I cannot see high resolution images clear on the beautiful screen of my N1.

It's in all the basics where Android drops the ball. Sure, the sky map is cool but I need the darn calendar, phone, timer, and alarm clock to be reliable workhorses not inflexible and not fully thought out as they are now.

Quote:
True silent or vibration mode. The separation of different types of sounds (system, media and so on) is just dumb when the phone should be in silent or vibe mode. Or you should at least have the ability to customize the various profiles to include or exclude certain sounds, functions or what not.
Yes!!! A single place to put the entire phone into silent mode. This is a cell phone first principle. In a meeting, concert, etc, I want to ensure the phone won't embarrass me but still want a discreet vibration to know a call came in.

I do love all the new functionality, the GPS, etc, but the day-to-day bread-and-butter activities of using the calendar and phone are driving me nuts and making me want my Nokia back.

The single worse thing that happens on a regular basis is that the "current call" screen will disappear with no way to get it back even though I'm still on the call. Switching to the dialer brings up the app just as if there is no call going on. The only place I can hang up from is the current call screen so there is now no way for me to hang up. The only way I've figured out how to get the current call screen back is to make a second call, hang up as soon as the call screen reappears and then hang up the first call. Sheesh!!!

There are many other irritations and time wasters such as navigating to a contact, saving a contact w/o having to dial it, not having a decent repeating alarm sound for notifications, having the "back" button not exit from the calendar, poorly designed control over audio notifications and volume, and many more.

It's still early days for Droid so I haven't given up on it but these things need to work much more usefully.

Awesome, this forum rocks :-)

One crucial feature that ought to be considered in the next version is to include an option for the user to be able to change the MTU size for the wifi access. Those of us who use broadband based on PPoE, usually have the MTU set to 1492. Since Android is defaulting to (I presume) 1500, many of the websites are inaccessible over wifi...

For the love of god, a decent media player! The last time I had to constantly re-encode video was 2006. My biggest regret from leaving windows mobile. Running Core player I could play just about anything I could throw at the phone and used to watch most TV shows on my phone.

I used MyBookmarks from the market, it added my bookmarks from chrome, and firefox (after exporting to my pc) to both the android browser and to dolphin browser on my htc EVO. worked very easily, and I wish I hadn't added both, because I originally added a folder in chrome with all my FF BM's, so I had a bunch of duplicates. small problem tho, app is good... has an addon for saving your bookmarks to SD also.

K-9 mail (free in the market, or cheap) allows selecting multiple emails for deletion. It's a terrific application.

Default need support for using DRM-protected files

Android needs support for DRM media files. I can borrow Adobe ePub books from my public library, as well as Overdrive WMA audiobooks, and Overdrive music and video files, but I can't use them on my Droid because these are all DRM protected.

Fbreader reads ePub books (yes, I've found ineptepub to crack the DRM), but I'd rather be legal. There's an Overdrive app for Android, but it is limited to Overdrive MP3 audiobooks, and nothing else. My library has 1898 protected WMA audiobooks and only 198 unprotected MP3 audiobooks--so Android shuts me out of using most of the audiobooks.

Default Some suggestions for the Google Maps App

Some of these may have been mentioned already but here is my list of suggestions for the Google Maps App on Android:

1) When accessed from the Maps application, the search function should always be map-centric. Sometimes when I do a search and find what I am looking for I select it and it sends me to the browser rather than to the map application so I can use the location as the destination within the Navigation feature. This shortcoming results in a lot of fumbling to get a destination into the map program and this is the last thing you want to do while driving a car so you end up trying to do it at a stoplight or after pulling over.

2) Most good GPS units have a good way of storing and retrieving favorite map points so they can be easily searched/accessed within the navigation feature. To my knowledge, the google maps application does not do this. I did find a way to store an address in a folder but this is rather cumbersome and this feature should be readily accessible within the mapping application. Saved map points should be easy to back up externally or send to others. An option to import would be nice too. When you get a lot of saved points, the ability to group them into folders/categories becomes crucial.

3) Along the same lines as the previous comment, most GPS programs store a history of recently accessed map points. Google Maps should have this feature as well.

4) The web-based version of Google maps has a nice feature that lets you modify the originally selectd route to your liking by dragging a portion of a route to go through a given location (i.e., via points). When you email or send a link of the revised route to someone (or yourself) and access it from the web applicaiton, the revised route is saved. However, if you access this link from the phone and select the maps application, it reverts back to the default route without the selected via points. This is very annoying because you spend some time to get your route just right and all that effort is for nothing when you go to use it with your phone app.

5) Option to have more data on the nav screen as others have suggested including current speed, distance to destination, bearing to destination, tracks, etc. Some may not want some of these so they should be individually selectable via checkboxes on a preferences/setup screen.

This may be on the 2.1 os (which is being installed (cellular south is doing it) but my biggest criticism of my phone is that there is no task app inherent to the phone and you can get good task programs and even found astrid that would integrate with the calendar but it is strange how it does it. With my blackberry, I could put a task in my task program and it would automaticallly integrate to my calendar. Integrated note program would be great too.

I have not seen an app that can do it, but google docs will and you can add that as a link to your desktop.

You can do the same with google calendar's to-do function.

Still the solution is not perfect as they both remain web based.

Just one for now: ability to assign different tones to notifications, i.e. SMS, Email, etc. Basically, the way you assign a ring-tone to a specific contact now. A standard notifications sound for all incoming types of data is weak. Should be able to tailor specific sounds to each type of notification. Heck, they can add it to the contacts (edit) even to allow the specific sound from say an email/SMS from a specific person the same way as the ringtones.

First post and it's a rant I'm afraid. Had a Desire but returned it due to the the absence of the following items - all of which are basic features that we've enjoyed for years on dumb phones. Now returning my iP4 due to it's inherent crapness as a phone, which leaves me in a bit of a pickle...

THE BASIC STUFF

1. A battery that lasts from when I get up to when I go to bed
The iPhone manages it so why the f*&( can't Android handsets do the same? And please, don't give me the BS about "... my Desire running for 36hrs so far and it's still on 40%...". Yeah, maybe if you don't actually use the damn thing. My iP3G with WiFi and bluetooth running all day, 1-2hrs of calls and 5 mail accts on IMAP, plus shed loads of data used to go the distance, as does my soon to be returned iP4. Am I missing something here?

2. A decent screen
AMOLED = great indoors, crap everywhere else. SAMOLED = rocking horse poo (Samsung, you tight bast@úds!).

3. Bluetooth voice dialling
Why is this not available? I - and many other users - have to make and take calls in the car. What possible reason could there be for not including this in such otherwise advanced devices? And as for HTC deliberately canning BT v-dial in the 2.2 Desire OTA, what a bunch of c^%*$!

4. Pocketable size
Granted, bricks like the Evo 4G and Droid X are very nice if you can ignore the feeble battery life, but they're ridiculously huge! If you really want a huge screen, buy a f&^$ing tablet. I want my phone to fit in a pocket without tailoring alterations. iP, Desire, N1 are all plenty big enough thanks.

THE NICE TO HAVES...

5. A cursor control for text entry
The Desire optical tracking thingy is great; it lets you quickly and accurately insert/edit text. The Galaxy S would actually be a viable option if it had one, didn't have such a crap UI and wasn't made by Samsung. When trying one in a store again this week I was baffled by the lack of any usable means of navigating text fields. Instead, I resorted to stabbing ineffectively at the screen in order to compose any written content.

6. Hardware buttons
I guess touch-sensitive buttons are okay from a 'minimal moving parts' perspective, but I still don't think you can beat a decent hardware button for tactile feedback and reassurance that you've pressed the right thing. The Desire is spot on in that respect.

7. No more network or manufacturer UIs
Please, for the love of god, can the networks and manufacturers please stop dicking around with what is essentially a very solid OS. All they achieve is to slow the release cycle, add bloat and restrict just how effectively you can personalise your device; and that option to personalise is one of the great wins Android has over iOS. Wouldn't it be nice if they just concentrated on making decent hardware - addressing the basic stuff above - and left the OS/UI stuff to those who are good at it?


Ahhh, that's better.

Doesn't DocumentstoGo edit? Granted, it's $15 but if you really need it it's worth it. I know my wife has it for her iphone and it works great. I have seen it in the market but have not messed with it.

Just a thought.

Although verizon navigator was a complete waste of money....When I had my Storm2 I at least had the comfort of knowing the navigator would continue running and not get me lost while the phone was doing other things.
It would be nice if the navigator would continue running if the back button or other key is accidentally bumped.
An audible warning is necessary when leaving a signal area and using navigation in an unfamiliar area.
When your screen has gone dark and you are driving along, waiting for a voice to tell you when to turn... you can become quite lost before you realize your signal is gone.

I do have a suggestion for an app though.
I've seen apps that supposedly detect traffic cams, why no radar detector?

Is it really that hard to get us a native pop-up SMS option?

The only thing I hate about an android set is non smooth scrolling. whether it is in contacts, music playlist or web browser (in this case most visible). I wish it to be removed and then I may enjoy a smooth scroll like an iPhone.

(I have a brand new Samsung Galaxy S with absolutely nothing in it, no apps, no songs, no videos, but still it seems slow).

PLEASE, PLEASE make a decent Android phone WITHOUT a camera. Those of us who work in high-security environments are prohibited from carrying a phone with a built-in camera.

I would but one in a New York minute if it existed.

I'm afraid the majority of us wouldn't buy it so companies won't sell it

They've had the same problems with macbooks. I could never figure out why they didn't just release a version without a camera. It doesn't seem all that hard, and there's got to be SOME demand for them. Even if you have to special-order it through the company or something.

Yeah I agree about making it a special order item. There is a small market for it.

Agree also here, though isn't there a way to get the camera deactivated?

Have buttons "Home", "Menu", "Back" and "Search" in the same order on all phones!!!

I have 2 phones from the same manufacturer (HTC) - Droid Incredible and Nexus One. Released about at the same time (I think) and the order of buttons is different. Switching from one phone to another gives me a headache.

I compared order to a couple coworker's phones (Samsung, Motorola), and the order is different too.

That makes it tougher to explain to security when you're entering a secure area. You'd have to go through a whole explanation process and show them it doesn't work, and even still they might not allow it, depending on how secure the area is.

Exit buttons. Please give me exit buttons for my apps. I like to close them down myself and exit chats and etc whenever I feel like it. Often I find myself still online, without knowing.... that sucks.

Download Advanced Task Killer. It's free and will close all apps at once.
