I'd totally dig a geocaching application - I used to use my Treo and a bluetooth GPS unit for this and an all in one package with the iphone would be great.
Cetus GPS on the Palm gives a pretty good example of the simplicity of the interface:
Cetus GPS - N 55° 23´ E 10° 26´
The ability to hit the geocaching.com website and import .gpx coordinate files would also be great with the lack of copy/paste, but I'll take what I can get

Ditto to cribbage. Also, the one thing I really miss from Windows Mobile/Pocket PC is a game from Sean O'connor called Slay. I emailed him about an iPhone version and he thought it was a great idea but lacked the knowledge to pull it off.

It might be cool to have a "screen saver" type of program where it can be put in landscape mode to display a digital clock, calendar information, and may other information like battery time, unread emails, signal strength, etc. Sitting on your desk in landscape mode it might look just like a cool digital clock.

An app that lets you locate where your friends are and actually uses the GPS in the Iphone 3G....Loopt, Where, and Whrrl all claim to "help you keep track of your friends"...Whrrl's latest update even claims to take advantage of the 3G's "more robust" location abilities...but none of these apps work like the GPS locater in the native Maps app! They only seem to locate you within a few blocks, if you find your location in Maps and then open Loopt...sometimes it gets it right, sometimes...Anyway, a friend locater that "just works" would be awesome.

Two apps I haven't seen but would love:
TV Guide app to check what shows are on, mark favorites, all that cool stuff.
And a UPS/FedEX tracking app, there was one for jailbroken iPhones but I haven't seen one in the app store yet.

They also claim to be able to send and receive picture messages, I just installed it yesterday and have been rather busy so I haven't been able to play around with it.

has anyone made an app to change "profiles".
Perhaps such that when one selects home, it turns on wifi, ****s off location services, disabled 3g. But when selected away from home, certain settings are changed. I don't want wifi on when I'm away from home.

what about a app that gives you some of the convienence features of the blackberry. like a way to know if you have a missed call or new message when the screen is unlit or an autotext feature that lets you add custom shortcuts like u for you and bc for because. and I second the profiles idea both for sounds and wifi 3g etc.

Someone should make an App that allows you to track packages via Tracking Number, without going online to check at UPS.com, FedEx.com, dhl.com, etc....
They could allow the user to save all their tracking numbers they enter, so that when the user goes back into the app, the status of all the packages updates so that the user always has the most up-to-date information of their packages
What does everyone think??
