    I'm sure a lot of us using the Droid are coming from a BlackBerry. Well here is what I miss:

    Being able to skip tracks by just holding down the +/- Volume for 2 Seconds. (Instead you have unlock the screen and hope you're still in the app for your media player.)
    Flip to your next picture with a flick. This was fixed with "Multi-Touch Gallery for Droid"
    A facebook app that lets you check Live Feed and your Inbox.
    ^Same thing for MySpace
    Custom LED color for different Alerts.

    Anyone have ideas?

    One of the very few things I miss from the BB was the led notifications.

    LED notifications can be managed in Handcent, including color IRRC.

    Also look at Missed Call and Missed Reminder for that functionality.

    Track skipping via the volume button is one that I miss a lot from my BB.

    What I missed the most were the alert sounds (e.g., lightspeed, cricket, etc.) until I found them online and added them to my Droid...that made me very happy. :)

    Has anyone found the sonar message tone?

    I miss that and a better call history.

    The only decent phonebook application is phonebook and there is just too much info.
