I'm not leaving Android, I use an iPhone primarily (obviously!) but I do have a Nexus One and apps that I "miss" on my iPhone include the much better Google Voice integration, voice control, and Gmail features. Basically the tight Google integration.

If I do leave android, I think I'll also miss the sky map, i also miss the core maps app. The android maps app blows the iOS one right out of the water. I think I'll miss the whole intergration with online services mostly and being able to tap and hold for more options or use a command with any program (lets say I want to search for a business. I can do a google search, yellow book or yelp. No need to go in each app, a pop up will ask me what program I want to use I tap the program and it opens, I can also set it as the defalut one too..
also a big one would be what Rene said, the voice intergration. Pretty nice, I can say my text message or say the website I want to visit, not just call home, or play party playlist.

Maps will be it. Everything else either has the exact app or others with the same functionality. The only must have app I have is firehouse scheduler and it has an iOS version. I hate to pay another $7 for it but it's worth it.

The one thing that I will definitely miss is the Google Nav built into Google Maps. Other than that, the only widget I really use is Weatherbug Elite and I may miss having the temperature in the notification bar. I'm guessing that there will be something similar for iOS though. I have the HotSchedules app on my Droid Pro but it crashes constantly, so it'll probably be better on the iPhone.

Google navigation, free Angry Birds (lol?) And stealar Google integration. I think I will have a hard time adjusting to no Widgets. It really is very convinient to just glance at the phone to get an overview of everything from Google voicemail to weather, todo list, and social updates.

I am going to miss google maps. As others have said, anything else either has an iOS version, or a different app that does the same thing. The only thing is some of the apps I had were purchased, and now I either have to find a free replacement, or buy the app again.

I was an AT&T iPhone 3G & 3GS user. Got tired of all the dropped calls and went to the droid. It wasn't the iPhone but a decent replacement. I am now back on the vzw iPhone and I miss the speech to text and the maps. They were the 2 best things IMO.

I've been an iphone user for a few weeks now, and there are a few things I do miss with Android. I miss the voice to text recognition available in all apps. I miss google navigation. I miss AmazonMP3 app. The one thing I miss the most though is not even an app. I am really missing the long press menus available on pretty much everything. Want to share a video, photo, etc? long press it and send it to whoever (or wherever) you want. Want to delete something? long press it and touch delete. For me, that was like the coolest feature in Android. Seems like such a no brainer for this to be a feature too. Was very surprised to not find this on the iphone.
Surprisingly, I'm not missing widgets nearly as much as I thought I would.
