I seriously envy the fluidness of iOS. Even with the latest version of JB, the scrolling is just not up to par with iOS. It feels more sluggish and more effort is needed to scroll. Even with my Nokia Lumia 610 running Windows 8 the fluidness of the scrolling is on par with Apple. If crappy Windows can match the smoothness of iOS then why can't Google?????

If you have an android there are many alarm apps that will go off even if the phone is on silent if you set it to do that.I think even the stock alarms for most androids have that option in the apps settings.

I have a payed for an alarm app (forgot the name) that does this and makes me solve math problems before it shuts off so I get out of my rediculously amazing bed lol.you can even snooze it and start the math process all over again.

Although I learned that in cases of incredible drowsiness removing the battery shuts it the hell up. Which inevitabley results in me being very late to whatever I'm supposed to be doing lol.

My wishlist: having the ability to remove useless crap apps that come with stock without having to root your device.Motorola especially. Also, software updates really need to be explained in detail either before or after instillation rather than forcing the user to look up the nitty gritty specifics online.

-Having Android update like iOS and W8 does !!!
I am tired to brick my phone each time I want to update to a new version (but thanks to CM to allow me to do it) !

-I would appreciate a bit more control on apps so they do not start in background by themselves !

- About smoothness, even if JB is much better it will be hard to get as good as iOS and WP7 according to this article: https://plus.google.com/+redmondpie/posts/9gGEonDiWot

But let hope that some genius dev or new superfast chipset will make it the same in the future.

Just an update..I have found that I can use the USB Audio Recorder App with a Fiio E07K Dac/Headphone amp to play files up to 24/96 on my Droid Razor HD in Hi-Rez...If USB A.R. can output a digital signal through the phones USB port, then so can Android if they want to...

That's not really an Android issue. I'm sure Android could support that if somebody made the hardware/service for it.

to run exe files on Android, you'd need a compatibility layer that implements the Windows API, something like WINE on Linux. Maybe a phone/tablet optimized WINE that could run directly on the Linux kernel on rooted devices, kind of dual boot, or WINE on Ubuntu running on a tablet. I doubt any of the current hardware has the grunt to do that though. Also, it'd be a pig of a job to port or develop.

My sole gripe with Android, after 2 years of Android phones and various ROMs, is the volume control. 16 possibilities = terrible. I want a volume control where you can choose the volume, percent by percent.
Of course, there's Fine Volume Control v2 that already does this, but 1. it's an external app; 2. it's a paid one; 3. every god-damn standard MP3 player has a volume control this accurate.

Oh and also, I really wish there was an audio pan control available.

These two wishes, if they were to be answered, would make me the happiest of the audiophiles.

I would like to delete apps right from the home screen like you can with iOS. I don't like going into settings > Storage > App > Uninstall. So annoying, and have to do it for every app too.

I want to also see better touch gestures. For example, if I am in a app, and I want to quickly get to the home screen and close the app, like using an iPad, you use four fingers and close them in, and that will take you to the home screen, and close the app, I think this is a cool feature. Also, they can use this for changing apps, use four fingers, swipe from left to right to either bring up a menu of the open apps, or just switch to the previous app you were using.

When you press and hold an app from the app drawer like you are going to place it on the home screen, there should be two options at the top: App Info and Uninstall. If you use an aftermarket launcher (I use Nova), when you press and hold on an app on a home screen, you get a pop-up menu that gives you an option to uninstall.

I guess the gestures might be nice, but I'm fine with being able to close an app with just one finger.

I just started a thread about this, but... When your phone auto connects to a bluetooth source like your car, Nav is treated like phone calls and directions are read to you, the music stops, etc etc. Loved that on my windows phone.

There should not be neither Linux nor Virtual Java Machine.
The first is old.
The second is slow.

Both are essential parts of Android, so I guess it can't be helped, so maybe the Android itself is the thing that should not be.

Exclamation A simple wishlist

I have a fairly simple wishlist.
I have icecream sandwich on my Sony Ericsson Live with Walkman. I do not use Microsoft Office at all. I also do not use the Fun & Games App or one of the two Play Store Apps (where one of the apps does not even connect to the app store). And yet, I cannot un-install these applications and they are loaded on the phone memory only. These apps cannot be moved to the SD card and my poor little phone has run out of memory space.
Can there be some way to remove these stupid apps when they are not being used, or at the very least allow them to be moved to the SD card instead of hogging the phone memory.

Default More Suggestions

Just adding to the list. Does anyone know if Google people actually read these? If not, they definitely should be. Also, does anyone know if there is an actual official suggestion site that Google runs? That would be amazing.

1. Something that allows you to set a certain time for wifi to turn on and off. For example, I leave for work at 5:45 A.M. every day, at which point Android could shut off my wifi so it's not eating my battery, but when I get home at 8:00 P.M., it will turn back on. This could be automatically detecting when you most often use networks but I think it would be most simple if you could just set your own times. Nothing too fancy

2. Suspend/hibernate. Store the session to the disk and all the phone to go to a super-powersaver mode that will keep for days at 10%, rather than minutes. This could be helpful in emergency situations where you need to save battery until you are near a cell tower.

3. This one's for chrome. A better PDF viewer, so you don't have to download and save the file, then forget it exists so you use up storage space.

4. Another for chrome- fullscreen mode! It's about time! Apple's Safari does this very nice, sad that Google can't keep up

5. Allow an easier way to make apps non-system, so we can delete those annoying useless "411 and more" and whatever else comes preinstalled to take up our storage space.

6. Permanent disable of apps, if we won't be allowed to just delete them.

That's just the top of my list... I'll be back for more

Also... how about support for Java in browsers? Though I guess that depends on Oracle.

You can configure the SIM card profiles separately in the Android system? For example Vodafone Card leave it in the normal profile Telefónica card change to silent profile?

Default bottom tool bar - Hide

Bottom tool bar should have a hide -option so that appears with some magick touch.
It should also be customizable so that we could move the icons back where they were in 4.0.4.
now in 4.1.2 they are exactly where they should not be in a tablet, ih hold in panorama position

Default Official rooting

There should be a trick to root a tablet with official tools.
About half of the most important tools and tricks must be done by rooting.

it is understandable, that rooting is dangerous for a newbie, but still more dangerous is rooting.
The official rooting could be so difficult or surrounded with warnings and legal diipadaapa, which makes the newbie at least hesitate.

there should be a rescue part in the BIOS so that the working version could be reloaded from a SD card (oops Nexus).

I strongly second that... I'd like them to add a "Refresh" button to the Contacts tab of the Dialer app, to make new contacts sync to the phone... Maybe a good spot is under the Import/export button?

few hours ago, I was on the web looking up cheap video editors. I came across this one Video Editor called pinnacle studio 16. Upon looking at the website I saw that there was an iPad app available with the same software. Very good less expensive Video Editor working on an iPad. I would like for bigger apps by top brand companies like pinnacle or Adobe to develop professional apps for Android devices. Because as I see it now the professional software is basically only for iPad.

Thanks for the HIJACK.

Instead of discussing crazy apps that would be cool, I think there is still a lot of basic feature improvement that can be done to Android (which might include integrating some current apps in the OS).
Thought it would be good to have this in one convenient thread for the google developers to be able to take note.
Here's a list to get the ball rolling (not in any particular order of importance)

1. Better Caller ID (This might be T-Mobile's fault, but all the numbers that I used to get ID'd, show up as "unknown").
2. Bluetooth Voice recognition? I couldn't get it to work with my motorola set.
3. Virtual Keyboard - I like the Vista Tablet model, but in this case, you would use your thumb to slide the keyboard out when you need it, kind of like you slide out the Main Menu. Although if that got in the way, maybe you could access it through the menu button.
4. I want the option to auto-mount the sd card when connected via USB put back in menu as a check box.
5. Also, the option to choose the time-interval between data auto-syncs.
6. Better battery management functions, profiles, and quicker access to screen brightness, and the other functions that Toggle provides.
7. Make the alarm clock more like Klaxon (minus all the crashing). Big snooze button, back button = dismiss, ability to select any audio in system or sd card, ability to change snooze length (in 1 minutes intervals).
8. Option to remove unnecessary apps, like Amazon MP3.
9. Ability to setup multiple gmail accounts (with one set to master account)
10. Improve email app, allow for multiple message delete, empty trash, search mail
11. Add in-browser Flash support
12. Add OpenOffice-like app to not only read, but create new docs and save to sd card.
13. Add PDF support.
14. Add a file manager. I like Bender, but I think with the support of Google devs, we can make an even better one that integrates a little more seemlessly.
15. Google Earth!!!!!!! I was shocked to see my brother pull up Earth on his ITOUCH!!!! and ashamed that my Google, yeah that's right GOOGLE, phone could not do the same
16. Speaking of iPhones, the two-fingered zoom in/out is just awesome. Not sure if that is software or hardware, but it's just a huge difference is usability. And you won't hear me praise many things about the iPhone.
17. VPN functionality.
18. Fix Auto-connect WiFi. I almost always have to go in and manually connect, says connection problem, but then connects manually just fine.

[edit: thought of some more...]
19. I have a lot of Google Map connectivity issues, while being able to use other network apps fine, could be google server issue. Don't think it is T-Mobile (I'm in LA)
20. Sync contacts with popular desktop apps, such as Evolution, Outlook, Thunderbird, etc...
21. I am not big on IM, but I've heard a lot of frustration in this area, maybe someone else can give input here.
22. I'm going to steal from another thread, even though this is hardware related. I think we need a VGA video camera in the front for video-conferencing. Can you please release this OTA?
23. Tethering phone to laptop.
24. What do you call it when the screen senses the orientation of the phone, well I want that.
25. How could I forget? ability to copy and paste text from non-text edit modes. Maybe special text selection mode?
[/edit]

OK, whew, that's all I got.

But to finish, I never expected the G1 to be perfect, it's 1st gen, so as Beta testers, hopefully Google/HTC/Tmobile are listening to us to improve not only our phones but the next gen as well.

This thread is not for troubleshooting or a personal birthday/Christmas/whatever wish list. It is a wish list of features for the Android operating system.

I'd like to see the whole system changed to less messy. This phone has stuff scattered all over the place when they could all be in one menu. the way it's setup now is illogical.

Allow the phone to be completely voice controlled.

Eg, someone can say (without having to touch the screen at all):

"screen on"
"OK google search XXX recipe"
"read aloud"

I came here to wish the same thing. The moto x had some thing like that, you don't have to touch the phone and you just say"okay Google now".

I just wish this feature was on all android device.

I'd like to see the menu / scrolling be as smooth as the apple equivalents.

I don't understand why after all this time it can't be fixed, i love android and all my phones have been android up to now, i don't understand why phones as powerful as the s4 still stutter, i have turnbed off svoice and turned the animation etc off.

I shoudn't need to turn things off to get the phone smoother though.

Disappointing that an s4 stills stutters in this day and age.

That being said, my nexus 4 is buttery smooth and has no lag whatsoever no matter how hard i push the phone. All I can think is it's touchwiz causing the lag or whatever

Be able to password protect or disable recovery mode for better security. (Thieves can wipe your phone even with a password)

Angry Why do we have to hear the Robotic Droiiiid on Boot?

I just got a Mini yesterday, and am happy with it except for the fact that I can't turn off the Droid sound when I turn on the phone.

I have read on the internet that this is an extremely common complaint. I would think that the phones would be made with the option to enable or disable this noise.

I don't want to have to root my phone. Why don't the powers that be cater to their customers instead of the other way around?

Default You know what could be COOL? Sound Customization

The coolest thing I have seen yet from the root people is being able to custom set your UI sounds in Android phones. Some really awesome sound effects. I am mesmerized.

It would really be nice if we could set up our own sounds without having to root our phones. Perhaps something cool for our next version of Android OS?

Maybe dumb, but I wish Android could use animated gifs and videos natively as background images. There are a lot of good animations in these formats, but you can only view animated gifs in the browser on a web page. There are a few apps that claim to do this, but I tried 'em and they are wonky and crash. Does anyone know of one that works? Pain in the a to make a live wallpaper app just to show a simple gif!
