    I think a be all end all app that allows you to change the led notification for all events together like berry buzz for bb. With that I could change calendar event, email(including each account getting its own), incoming calls missed calls, text, mms, facebook, twitter etc. With the ones currently avialable in the market you can do some but not others and that is a pain, have to use gmail notifier for gmail app, handcent for text and mms, roadsync for exchange email, and missed call for other email, missed calls, etc. So that is 4 apps I have to do the job that one should be able to do. I want nothing the same color so when i see the led blinking i quickly know what i have waiting. Would gladly pay for one app that controls all led notifications.


    Oh and a way to put the phone in sleep mode by plugging it in, as in no radio, no led notification, no ringtones etc. or at least a way to shut off led notification at night very easily. i hear no sounds at night, but when i get a message, my room looks like a christmas tree with the led blinking.

    I've been looking for a good Call Recorder. I haven't found a good one yet and it baffles me. On my old Palm Centro years ago I had a program that would record both sides of a conversation.

    While I was searching for a good app there seemed to be a pretty good demand out there for it. People want to easily be able to record calls for legal reasons and there just isn't anything good out there. Being able to save the calls to email would be nice as well.

    Here are a few ideas that I carry over from the Blackberry world.

    1. Email filtering app. Ability to process email based on conditions, like who it's from, what domain is it from, etc.

    2. Email to calendar event or task. Ability to take an email and process a calendar event with the subject of the email as the event or task title.

    3. A Quicklaunch type app. If you don't know what this is, it's an app that allows you to have one icon that pops up a list that can launch apps, email, sms, phone calls and many other functions.

    I've only had the Droid X for a week now and have gone through 1000 different apps filtering down to the ones I like and want to use. I'm having a blast doing it, so if anyone knows of apps that can already do what I've requested, please let me know cause I still haven't found them yet.

    Thanks,

    OK, my numeric keyboard problem is solved. What great support and what a great keyboard at Smart Keyboard. I know these are very personal issues, what you like and don't. For me, as a numbers guy, I felt like I needed the hard keyboard in order to have the cursor pad for spreadsheets. So I jumped on the Droid, but sad to say, I finally gave up trying to do spreadsheet work since it was just so bad to work with.

    Now, I'm back! I don't need no stinkin' hardware keyboard anymore. Smart Keyboard's numeric pad, which mimics a calculator layout, has the cursors on the same screen, so navigating around should be a breeze.

    I'd like to add my voice regarding a good robust integrated PIM application. I resisted switching from a Palm device solely because of the PIM capability but alas my device had other ideas and decided on its own to retire. I (and many others) have been waiting, watching, and requesting the developer of my most favored 3rd party Palm PIM to create an Android based version but seemingly to no avail. Many of us have stated the first to market application with a good robust integrated PIM will get our business. In the meantime we wait and watch and request and hope. Perhaps you will come through for us?

    Further, I don't believe most of us would have qualms about paying a premium price for just such an app. I doubt that company's pricing structure would work in the Android world (~$60 for the premier edition) but should suffice to show users with the need are willing to compensate the developer fairly.

    Needs;

    ability to link contacts, calendar, notes, tasks, and ideally email.
    ability to sync w/ outlook
    ability to categorize all of the above
    good "today" or "agenda" type view

    I'm sure there is more but those are the basic "must haves"

    FWIW, and for your reference my Palm PIM of choice was Agendus

    Thank you for the opportunity to offer suggestions.

    idk, i mean quick launch was somewhat of an essential app if you had the blackberry storm because of the lack of space on the homescreen and freedom to do what you wanted. with android you have multiple home screens and also you can set shortcuts anywhere on the homescreens. i am not sure if im understanding what you mean and i do apologize if im misinterpreting it.

    Pocket Informant PIM is coming out really soon on Android, this will probably handle most of your concerns.

    I am looking for a better app that can keep track of various items I own via manual entry, from the web or barcode like the following apps:

    Shelves
    Inventory
    Packrat

    Shelves does not allow you to add custom categories with custom icons and has terrible searching results

    Inventory is a bit more for international users has more cutstomization, I have not tried finding anything with it though

    Packrat is more of an advanced version of shelves, you can add more shelves but you cannot add customized icons, I also have not tried finding the items with packrat yet either.

    Packrat uses the barcode scanner Zxing made but it does not seem to work, all the other apps I have that can use the same barcode scanner use it just fine.

    In a nutshell this app needs to have good ability to find the product specific to the barcode or search (I have tried searching for HTC Evo, and all I get is phone cases and chargers not the EVO itself) and it needs to have barcode scanning ability that actually works along with being able to customize categories, owners, icons, etc

    I would love a video streaming app that could transcode. I have StreamtoMe on my iPad. It works with a Server called ServetoMe and does its thing flawlessly. StreamtoMe transcides dvrms as well as your typical dvix & mkv files so it works with my Media Center recordings. This is the one thing I am missing on Android & something I hope to see by the time Android tablets start rolling out. It is great to sit on the patio and watch a movie without having to download it to my device. Works with music as well so a server is all you need and you can stream anywhere in the house with speakers. AirVideo on the iplatform works as well, but does not transscode dvrms.

    There are lots of grocery shopping applications in the market, but evidently not any comes even close to what was available on palm. There was an application on palm called HandyShopper which was very feature rich and was maybe one of the best shipping apps ever, and also freeware. The developer ported it to winmo, but he says he will not port it to android. I think there's probably a place for a full featured shopping program on android. I'd pay for it for use in my business. What I'm using now on android may work but is highly limited, and it's the best I could find for my purposes.

    As far as PIM's go, Pimlico Software currently has Pimlical for Windows Desktop, and is working on the Android version. The application is written in Java so it can be ported to almost any platform (except iPhone perhaps). The original version of this program was DateBook on Palm, which has been around for a long time, currently in version 6. It is the most full featured and robust PIM across the board, for advanced users. The cost will be about $30 for the desktop version, but currently introductory price of $20. Not sure what the pricing will be for the android version when it is released. But the two will eventually sync with each other.

    This app has almost no features. I think I evaluated it and moved on quickly. Allows multiple lists, and multiple users, and menus. That's about it. Didn't see a pick list, or price tracking, or... etc. etc.

    I don't suppose you have access to an old palm, or are familiar with HandyShopper, but if you did, you'd see what I mean.

    I looked at your Auto Notifications for Android app. Timeriffic has many more features, and it's free. I hope your other apps are more exciting than that one, because $1.50 for a timed sound switch is a bit much.
