    The launch of "iPhone 2.0" and the iTunes App Store will take place in late June. On that day, purchasing a game for the iPhone can be done quickly, easily, and from just about anywhere.

    A variety of applications of many sorts will be available for download from the iTunes App Store on launch day and plenty more are on the way.

    Which apps are you hoping will show up on the iPhone? Which killer app would turn your iPhone or iPod touch into your notion of the ultimate mobile device?

    How about a very high quality telnet / SSH client for doing emergency, on-the-go server maintenance? I'd buy it.

    Microsoft said they were evaluating the iPhone SDK. So hopefully... but even if MS doesn't do it, Im sure there will be some sort of wordprocessor for the iPhone.

    I need/want a good IM client. Hopefully AOL will deliver. Or Apple will do it.

    MS makes Office for the Mac. Why not the iPhone? Just more revenue for M$. People will want EXCEL and Word editors so why not the "real" thing. Its coming my friend. The ground feels a little cold! :)

    Well theres one problem ;p situation with smartfone software market is different then in desktop computer market, where MS is crashing lider. Look that RIM and Apple are the llders, all other usually runs Windows Mobile or Palm OS they all quite down, so making software for leading platforms might be equal to suicide ;p

    I would lovelovelove a version of Delicious Library that allows me to add items to a "WTB list" by using the camera to scan the barcode. Even if that isn't possible, having my library show the covers/ratings would be more useful than the bland list dump that I have on my iPod now.

    I'd like to see (unless i missed it on the ipod touch) is an app that can search for keywords of all your songs just like iTunes.

    I'd like to see a GOOD lock screen notification app. Something that tells me my to-do list and appointments for the day or week, without having to unlock the screen and go to my calendar app. I know it's more like a M$ phone, but that was and would be a helpful app for me.


    btw, is there a way to set a notification alarm for my calendar to-do's as "on" by default. Instead of having to set it to "1 hour or 30mins" before every time I make an appointment?

    I just really really want a heavy duty dictionary app. When I'm reading and come upon an unfamiliar word, I want to be able to pull out my iPhone and find the meaning without having a wi-fi or edge connection. Also, I'd love it if the app would record searched words. Letting me create smart lists like "Words in the past week" or "Words in the past month," and then quizzing me on them with multiple choice answers would be amazing.

    I REALLY REALLY want a video capturing App! I've been waiting for this and want my iPhone to have that functionality. This small App can really add to the iPhone, and some cool functions like night vision mode, a digital zoom 2X-4X possibly, but something that's simple and works really nicely so that you could possibly sync with iMovie similar to syncing pictures with iPhoto. Fingers Crossed.

    talkin of microsoft. I could really do with an IM app that works with msn or hotmail accounts. Like an MSN messenger but for iphone/pod.
    I'm sure loads of other people would use that kind of thing.
    Or is that not possible for some reason. Because I've noticed that "mail" doesn't support msn/hotmail accounts either. Am I missing something?
