Default What would you want for an APP

If I were to make an APP, not a game, what would you want?

Try to keep it realistic please.

Please don't say youtube or netflix. They are currently impossible.

Thanks,
jbgrzy

RSS? An offline dictionary would be awesome, but you'd probably need permisson. Maybe an index of rhyming words? Some type of mapping service would be cool too, but a little ambitious.

A conversion tool would be pretty cool. Something that does US to Metric conversions would be pretty handy. I know there are plenty of online tools that do it for free, but for when you don't have WiFi and want to calculate something that would be awesome.

+1 to Conversion App...
There were a few of those over at Zuneboards, but they didn't seem perfect....
Another suggestion is a Metronome app. I know we already have one in the marketplace, but I would like a more visual, old-fashioned one like I had on my old P3. Something like this

I like Master Jackson's suggestion of an RSS app. Some sort of score (sports) tracker would be cool too.

Thanks, not entirely mine though, it was mentioned in another thread too.

We do have a currency converter in the MSN money app, but no measurements. This would be cool if integrated into the calculator too.

I would love to have a notepad app. Just something where I can jot down things to do or something to remember. Doesn't have to be fancy at all. Just white text with black background, similar formatting to the MSN Money app would be great.

I'd love to be able to select a new app from a collection of over 1,000,000, anytime I want. These PMPs aren't static devices. The reason app stores have made them so popular is because our interests and needs change over time.

A cool thing would be the ability to have the Zune like have tasks schedualed, and then it pops something up or something like that (sorry if it already does that, but I think it would be awsome)

I think it would be cool to have an app that is a level, so it has a little bubble in the middle and uses the accelerometer to tell you if the surface is level. Also, a light app. This would include a white and a red for nighttime use. And maybe a disco feature that changes with the music too!

Nah, it doesn't, and probably won't, definitely not without a firmware update. You can on an iPod Touch; you can also get them from Facebook, Email, and a bunch of other apps. I think they're called 'push notifications'? Apps on the Zune are locked away from the firmware. =(


You can get a flashlight-like effect by just getting an all white picture, or making one with paint, or all red. Then you can pin it. It does kill the battery about 3 times faster than the Zune screensaver.

It's rather well made, might I add. I did download it, and installed it too. Then I remembered I have no use for a level. And deleted it.

That's because it is a really good app . That and your other app quiltris. You should really talk to Dave about adding them to the marketplace, I'm sure it wouldn't be too much work considering they're already written in xna.
