    There is a bunch of things, but my top needs are:

    1. Facebook official app or app that does all that the Blackberry version does and then some.

    2. "Mark All As Read" feature in the SMS Messaging app

    3. Multiple select of messages and emails

    4. Copy and paste in emails

    Chime in peeps...

    P.S. If anyone has a fix, solution, or app that takes these issues away please steer me/us to it. Thanks! :)

    Better conversation threading in gmail that allows both inline responses and ability to even see older messages in the reply emails. More like regular email.

    Between Bloo and Babbler, I think they've got your bases covered, but i'm not sure what the "Blackberry version" can do. Facebook put their nose in the air when Android came out last year, I believe they've changed their minds since then.

    Pigs Fly As Facebook And Google Work Together On An Android App

    Is the official Facebook app coming to Android today?|Android and Me

    don't know about this one.
    If you mean gmail, it's already there, came along just before, or with Cupcake, don't remember now. If you go into gmail, hit the menu button, tap settings, and make sure "batch operations" has a check mark. I don't think there's something like this for messages.

    Hope I could help.
