    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

    I would love to see the following

    A good units converter program. There is one already, but you can't choose the units from a list, you have to type the actual units in. A little unwieldy.

    A cribbage program would be great.

    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.

    How about a more full fledged TASKS program that actually lets you assign categories, but most importantly, has BUILT IN REPEATING TASKS functionality?

    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.

    Other platforms have various security programs, where if you phone is stolen, you can send yourself a text message that will lock the phone, or erase it. Is such a thing possible with the iPhone?

    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.

    What I would like to see is not a new app but a modification to an existing one. I would like the calendar icon to have an indicator on it telling you how many appointments you have that day similar to the way new message and missed call indicators appear.

    Actually one was just released this weekend called Palringo. It does AIM, Google Talk, Yahoo, Gadu Gadu (who actually uses that?), Jabber, and of course, MSN.
    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.

    Found some interesting stuff on the tracking app. After finding this very useful widget that this guy made, it seems he's working on an iPhone app as well:
    MIKE PIONTEK // journal / mac os x / delivery status for iphone

    Looks awesome!

    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.

    +1 for this type of application.

    i dunno if its possible, but today, i thought maybe even switch 3g when i browse the internet, since i really dont need 3g speed except for a few applicaitons, why not have a 3g chooser?

    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.

    Or to build on this somehow get your iPhone to send you its location remotely. This would be great if it was lost or stolen.

    Also a good PDF reader that would make the text easy to read on the iPhone.

    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??
