    A SyncML client, allowing Calendar & Contacts, and maybe Notes and Bookmarks to be synched with SyncML servers such as mobical.net. Useful for those of us with a backup Sony Ericsson phone that supports SyncML (and has done for years) or those who prefer not to keep all their information inside the googleplex :)

    Regards

    Pete

    Why limit your prospective user-base to the Hero? Develop for the OS in general and you have the future at your fingertips. ;)

    Btw, in case you're unaware there are also several sub-forums under Android Discussion which may be of help to you as your project(s) develop.

    Allowing to sort/order contacts in any form by overriding the only default alphabetical order in the phone. I am not sure Android 2.1 would take care of this by default.

    well more than changing how things currently work or adapt existing apps i wanted to create something new. considering how many libraries Google has available for the android platform theres a vast array of things which can be done.

    1. A theremin app that uses accelerometer and compass as well as finger input. I really miss this app from my windows mobile days: Pocket Clanger Theremin v1.02 freeware for Windows Mobile Pocket PC.

    2. A parabolic ear / stethoscope app. The fruity phone has one of these and it's saving lives!!!:
    59p stethoscope on iPhone proves a hit - News, Gadgets & Tech - The Independent

    3. A speed reader, using Rapid Serial Visual Presentation to speed read text:

    spreeder.com - Free online speed reading application

    ZAP Reader

    WinBlit Speedread Home Page


    Good luck with your coding!

    what about games guys? there seems to be a lack of good games for the android. I mean you look at the iphone and there are tons of games. Some of them can have simple flash style (cartoon type) graphics..but we seem to be lacking in the android world.

    Im up for making games too..although id need someone else to take care of the graphics.

    Games are a must...only decent aspect of the iPhone is the games / graphics..

    Something like GTA style game / Football game

    Google Maps with compass mode (ability to move map when you move)
    Google Earth with compass mode (ability to move map when you move)

    A music / video player with Audio settings (E.g. Bass / Treble / Equalisers..if this is at all possible)


    many thanks. :cool:

    If only you lived nearby. I'd be all for colaberating with you to make a nice game engine. A 3D space sim would certainly possible, maybe something like Freelancer (a truly great game).

    I tell you what would a fantastic thing to do... Audible haven't got support for Android phones. I know there are many, many people out there who would like to be able to listen to their audiobooks on their phones rather than carrying an mp3 player as well! You could write an app which will let us play our books.

    I'm sure if you did a bit of 'reverse engineering' on an existing app, you work out how it works and write one for Android pretty quickly. They're not that large. They're just file handlers, I think.

    Actually theres no reason why we could not work remotely. Its harder but doable :)

    I also thought about a welcome screen type app like the black berries as well (actually the one on my old sony ericsson w960i is nicer i think), or an app which allows you to store/syn all your contacts, calendar events, emails, notes etc all in one package with text to speech capabilities and some AI thrown into it as well..kinda likea virtual secretary type thing..just a thought..

    Yes, it's an absolute pain the backside that you can't synch notes, texts etc. The HTC synch is so limited it's unbelievable. My old Nokia one was much, much better.

    A app like the "Air Mouse" for iPhone. One of the only things I miss from my iPod touch :)

    Yeh a better video player with more formats. Gets frustrating having to convert videos all the time.
