    There may already be a thread like this, but I haven't run across one so I figured I would start one up. Who knows, maybe some developers will run across this and some of our ideas will turn in to applications.

    To start off the list here are a couple I have been thinking I would like to see:

    - Yahoo Fantasy Baseball - an application that allows you to adjust your roster and see your live team statistics on your Android phone

    - Sleep Sound App - For those nights where you are in a hotel and need to drown out some noise or just want a calming sound to go to sleep to. The application would play music much like the sleep noise machines you can buy. For example it could play the sound of rain, waves crashing against the shore or rainforest sounds. It would have a sleep timer as well.

    What are some on your wish list?

    Another one I just thought of:

    - An app that allows you to set the length of time the little notification light stays on after receiving an email, text, etc on the Incredible.

    An app that lets you use the joystick as the screen wake/sleep button instead of the button on the top when on home screen.

    This. I hate having to hold the power button for silent mode/vibrate. Also, LED flashlight that works on incredible.

    A per contact text message notification sound. Basically A different sound for each contact when the text vs when they call.
     
  9. 1. App that will allow me to wake my phone using the optical joystick
    2. App that will allow me to turn on the dual LEDs and use them as flashlights
    3. App that will allow me to control the length the LED notification light being on (and possibly the color if it is available)

    im going to be playing around with making simple feature / modification apps once i'm done with finals for the semester. unless someone else takes it upon themselves to create it before i get around to it, i will for sure be making one that lets you wake the phone using the optical joystick, reaching up to the power button to wake the phone is getting annoying. i guess i can do the other two in the above post too since they should be fairly simple.

    here's a couple other things i wanted to look into maybe making, if they already exist please let me know.
    -something to make it so that when you initiate a call, instead of going back to the numpad/contact list after the calls over it brings you back to the home screen
    -a widget button like the wifi / bluetooth whatever toggles to switch between ringer and vibrate (or if there's some sort of shortcut to do that already without just hitting volume up/down a bunch of times, let me know)
    -if the call confirm app that someone made (so you dont accidentally hit someones name and start calling) isnt completely polished (i think right now it doesnt show who you're calling correctly?), i'll probably make one that is.

    I figure I'll be getting an Inc. in July. It will be my first smart phone.
    I dont know if the phone can do it or there is an app that can do this, but I would like to have a selective ring. Where it will only ring when certain numbers call. Ex: I'm out of town for work and I only have 10 hours between shifts to get any sleep. I only want my wife to be able to ring. Everything else goes to voice mail.

    This has been fixed. If you go to the market you will see that the dev updated for the incredible. I confirmed it's now pulling my contact names for the confirmation window.

    An app to mark all 10,000 of my gmail emails as "read" so I don't have to select them one by one. I know, I'm asking for a lot...
