    2.1 isn't something we can do much about. An equalizer for music would be killer, I use my phone for streaming music and as an mp3 player, in my car and at home ran thru the headphone jack. Sometimes the bass output is far too high. As for needing better app devs, we need less time being put towards pointless apps. Apps that aren't graphical were probably made by a dev who is more about getting code correct than making it pretty. If you feel that you could make a better looking gui then email the dev. I have seen people want better games, what kind of games? As for streaming tv, I use an app that works great for me, tv.com. true its not all the channels I like but when I have some time to kill it does the job. I hope this helps.

    I really do wonder where the vcast went also...not that there aren't apt search engines but u knew u were always comfortable using it for a wide variety of needs..:eek: well...I still love my droid...I went from a juke to an envy 1 & now the droid...maybe my other phones have made me more grateful...oh the days of a nineties flip phone...lol...I'm still learning as I'm sure the creators are...I'm thankful we're all able to express our opinions equally...thanks for hearing(reading? Mine. *tRiSh*

    I just downloaded the "Color Flashlight" app...and it has a flame as one of the features!

    An easy-to-access Phone Only mode would be nice. It might be there...I have not yet found it, nor have I found a app for it.

    For me, whats missing is security. I have downloaded Mobile Defense, but it can be uninstalled. What I would like to see from google is this:

    An app that allows a user to track it online, lock it, etc that cannot be uninstalled, and would automatically turn on the GPS. And when the phone is locked, you cannot turn it off, and would automatically start tracking on boot, and maby to be able to turn it over to local PD if its stolen? Just an idea, but it would make me feel better :)

    rooting your phone is way better than any 2.1 OTA. all the roms out there pretty much have everything that 2.1 is going to bring to us and much more. not to mention being able to overclock. 2.1 wont be able to do that.

    How about support for Wireless N, plus FM radio support, and a completely open 2.1 that we can do whatever we want with?

    Native support for Flash and FLAC as well would be kewl.

    I would like the stock home to be able to rotate to landscape without opening the keyboard.

    I would like the phone feature of the phone to be improved. The face sensor seems to be quirky~ it blanks out the screen so as to not mute it with your cheek, yet, i constantly put people on mute, and the screen is not on the current call screen, but goes to the call log page.. so i have to quickly bring up the screen, go to the right page, return to call in progress, unmute, all while hearing the pther person say "hello, hello are you there?" the few who know the problem wait for me, but most hang up thinking i got disconnected :(
    i dont know why this is happening!

    better battery life too, but what can you really get with a smartphone.. its always being used !

    I'd like the GPS to work without cellular network. I had my phone in an area without CDMA coverage. GPS could not lock.
    Better map caching when networks (either cellular or wifi) are not available

    I have only owned my MotoDroid for a few weeks, coming from a Blackberry. I am totally impressed, having used sevaral PPC and smartphones since the Samsung i700. I

    have one request: I ride a motorcycle and have my phone tapped into my intercom system via the wired jack. I'd like to see an auto-answer app, as I can't do the slide-answer thing with gloved hands. I suppose I could cut a fingrertip off on my left hand, but the aforementioned auto-answer would be preferrable.

    I'm stunned at how crappy Android handles cursor positioning on the touch screen. Either that or I'm a dufus and haven't figured it out.

    Need to insert a word a few words back? Or modify an existing word? So, lets move the cursor to the point where we need to insert text. Android forces you to tap multiple times until you get the cursor where it needs to be. Kinda like whack-a-mole.

    Versus iPhone where you press and hold, and a little magnifier pops up allowing you to smoothly move the cursor to the exact point in the sentence or word. I think even Storm 2 on Blackberry handles it in some fashion. :eek:

    Am I missing something?

    I would to see there be a wider customization for notification tones. VM vs Text vs Pic msg. Additionally, I'd like to see dedicated notification tones for specific contacts in my address book.

    AGREED....cursor realigning is not handled well and more than a few times in frustration I've had to slide the keyboard out. I understand the long press is for context menus but maybe something like......

    One tap: take you between full words
    Double tap: places cursor exactly where you tap

    Would rock!

    I definitely agree with a lot of other posts and their upgrades/things they like to see, but for me I would like to see spell check. I know when you use the virtual keyboard it helps finish the word for you which eliminates the need, but I prefer the dedicated keyboard.

    Ignorance must really be bliss.

    What's the currently installed user base for the iPhone compared to the user base for Android 2.0 devices? If you were a developer, which would you put time and effort into?

    This isn't a conspiracy, or laziness on dev's parts, it's simple business. You put effort into the largest available market, and right now, that's the iphone. As more and more people own android devices, the applications will come.

    Trimble Outdoors in the Market has your solution covered. There are a few other options for offline maps as well, but Trimble is the most user-friendly.

    The D-pad on the slider works pretty slick for me. But as I tend to use Swype, I rarely find a need for it at all.

    There isn't one. FM radio reception isn't enabled on our Droids, although the capability is supposedly there on the chip. There are some devs working on a way to switch it on.

    I Heart Radio is an app by Clear Channel that allows you to stream the stations they own.

    I think a better camera, yeah you could say it's 5MP but in anything less then perfect conditions it's horrible.
