1. Task Manager, or something to close apps.

One of the apps in the market (Poidle Service Viewer) said that the
security implementations is such that you can't make a third party
task manager (read description). The extra background functions are
taxing the battery life.Is there going to be a task manager in next
weeks update, or a future build? Instead of turning the phone on and
off every time I have to quit an app without an exit option in menu.

2. An Android wishlist from a soon-to-be-user

For some reason, although the iPhone is cool, I've become fixated on
Android and its potential. So, I pre-ordered a T-Mobile G1. I am now
suffering from the worst case of delayed gratification I've had in
more than two decades. The last time I felt this way about a gadget,
it was a shortwave radio my parents were going to give me for
Christmas. Then I was able to find it hidden in the closet and play
with it for two months without them knowing. Now all I can do is read
the various community sites, watch the most interesting of the videos,
and speculate about what the new phone will, or can, do.

So, I've got a lot of wishes for Android. I'm not expecting this stuff
out of the box on the T-Mobile G1, but I'd love to have it from the
community later. I hope posting it here is a way to stimulate
developers. For the record, I'm a former IT director, now a dictionary
editor and radio host, with a high level of technical aptitude but
with few of the skills required to code apps for the phone. So there's
a technical bent to my requests, which cover all of my interests.

I believe some of these, such as tethering, present challenges that
may not be overcome on the T-Mobile G1 hardware.

I would hope those apps that connect Android to a computer will be
available for Mac and PC, at least, and preferably for the Linuxes and
Unixes, too.

1. A timed or automatic application to sync iTunes playlists between
Android-compatible ones (so that they mirror each other) and to make
sure the files that are in those playlists are on both the phone and
the computer. Probably easiest done by mounting the phone via USB,
and, fortunately, the iTunes playlists are parseable. This allows
files purchased from Amazon to be easily moved to the computer and
iTunes, and allows iTunes to be the central place, if one wishes, to
manage music. The best of all possible worlds would be to have a group
of iTunes playlists (perhaps under a single nested folder?) that can
be identified as "always sync these with the Android phone," so that
the updating of the desktop and phone libraries happens with as little
duplication of effort as possible. This app should also work with
podcasts that are downloaded by iTunes. It would be great if it could
recognize what has already been played and what has not and allow the
user to select things like "sync all unplayed" or "sync all downloaded
in the last X days" or "sync 2GB of the most recently downloaded
podcasts." Space management will be an issue and music is usually a
big space hog, so this app should take that into account.

2. Google Reader for Android. A must-have! I've seen that there are
other RSS apps (since they're easy to build) but I'd have to manage my
hundreds of subscriptions in more than one place.

3. Music player tweaker that allows additional items to be added to
the Android Player Library screen. Mainly, I want a button for genre,
so that podcasts that are copied over are easier to get to.

4. A skin or other tweak that allows the desktop to be viewed as a
list rather than as icons. Bonus points if you can get it in a
multicolumn layout so the virtual panning across the desktop shows the
rest of the list.

5. I see in the leaked T-Mobile manuals that Google Gears is available
for the browser. I'm not clear if it works with Google Maps and Google
Docs, but I'd love it to. This should be automatic; that is, caching
should be wise enough so that commonly visited content and recently
visited content are available, in one usable fashion or another, when
the phone is not able to connect to the Internet. The reason I say
"automatic" is that with Google Gears for Firefox, I have to manually
select "offline," which, frankly, limits the utility of it on my
laptop: who remembers to check that little green button every time?
This kind of thing would be particularly useful to those of us who
commute underground by subway and those of us who spend many hours on
airplanes.

6. A program to sync selected folders, notes, or other things between
a desktop computer and the phone.

7. A command line, preferably with some of the basic Linux-type apps
installed, such as a simple text editor, telnet, ssh, some network and
lookup tools, grep, etc.

8. Over-the-cloud backup of the non-Google applications and documents
of the phone. For example, if I take a bunch of pictures, I want to be
able to back them up somewhere in the cloud in case I need more space
on the phone, or the phone is lost or stolen. Same for music I might
buy from Amazon. I know you can send pictures in email, but how
tedious that would be to send dozens or hundreds! What I am after is
an automated solution that would allow you to grab all files of a
certain type (or even let you specify all files created directly on
the phone), send them, then delete them from the phone, all in one go.
Above all, I'm looking for some kind of assurance that my files and my
downloaded and/or paid-for apps can be retrieved in the event of
disaster. I see that there is a program that allows you to store files
on an Amazon bucket, but it's not clear to me a) if it is finished or
b) if it is automatable.

9. An app to automatically post photos to Flickr when they are taken.
I see a couple of apps that might do this for me (like flickrdroid),
but it's not clear if they do.

10. A high-quality dictionary. NOT WordNet or Webster's 1913 or any
one of the StarDict dictionaries. Something modern and well-crafted.
This will likely have to come from a commercial publisher. I realize
that I will be able to look things up online, but I'm not convinced
that's the best user experience for retrieving definitions on a mobile
phone.

11. A video player similar in capabilities to VLC. YouTube is not all
that.

12. An app that allows updating of Facebook satus, Twitter, Tumblr,
and the other similar services all in one go. There's an app called
"MoodBlast" for the Mac that does this just about perfectly.

13. Ability to search all documents on the phone from a single
interface: mail, PDFs, music, calendar, etc.

14. A VNC app. I see some work has been done on this, but it's only
the VNC server: http://code.google.com/p/android-vnc/

15. A Bluetooth tethering app. Allow your computer to access the
Internet via your phone's Bluetooth capabilities.

16. A USB tethering app. Allow your computer to access the Internet
via your phone's USB port.

17. A "tight, clean, and small" skin. Most of the screenshots I see
luxuriate in lots of open space and overly large words and unnecessary
stars and other gewgaws. I'd love to see a text-only, small, clean,
sharp skin that crams as much data onto every screen as possible.

18. Bookmark syncing with Firefox.

19. Something that allows me to create contact groups and then to
place a conference call to everyone in a group without having to dial
each one of them independently.

20. Ability to use Google Calendar to set phone alarms of differing
sound and volume.

21. Something that allows me to know when apps downloaded from Android
Market have been updated or that there is a new version available.

22. Skype or other voice-chat client. I think T-Mobile might have a
problem with this one, but I include it anyway, in case someone needs
encouragement to be bold enough to try it.

23. An Adobe Flash plugin for the browser! This is being worked on,
supposedly:

24: A radio app that collects and collates a lot of online streams in
one place for easy access.

3. Possible to tie Alarm Clock to Calendar?

4. Permission Denied

5. Multiple pages WBXML support about org.kxml2.wap.WbxmlSerializer in dalvik/libcore/xml/src/main/java/org/kxml2/wap

6. Why must WebView display local files via a ContentProvider?

7. Maps and M5, impossible??
