One that allows you to change the time when you travel and update your calendar. There are a couple of programs for Palm that offer this capapbility. It may be a limitation in the BB.

Maybe one that will list tasks by categories (just like the simple Palm OS To-Do) without using "filter" function to do this...and this program should integrate with the BB's Task app so that we don't have to re-input all the tasks in this new app.

A general-purpose list program, like ListPro for Palm and PPC.

I haven't crossed time zones since I have had my BB, are you saying the Date/Time Source set to "Network" won't change the time automatically as you move from one time zone to the next?

Default idea?

I'd like to see someone take advantage of the gps to track on a map a path and keep a running rate of travel and distance.

Basically, I run random or offroad paths and would like to see how far I traveled and it what time I did it in as well as see the path overlaid on a map/satellite image.

Thanks.

A new app from the makers of PocketDay will take care of lists...custom lists with your own fields and lists from pre-defined templates. Alarms with snooze functionality and more...

An app that will allow you to change Profiles based on time of day that you set...just like a similar app for Treo 650 called "ProfileCare" (http://gotreosoftware.com/index.php)

How about an app to turn the screen off (to extend the battery just a bit). It's just like putting the BB into the plastic holster.

More robust calendaring. Right now, the calendar on the BB is pretty pathetic.

a program that could link a bluetooth camera with the blackberry so that you could attach pictures to an email. that would be great.

I'm demo'ing it now. It's nice. I'm not sure that it solves the calendaring problem - things like linking contacts/memos/tasks/appts. together. If you've ever used a pocket pc, I'm thinking something like PocketInformant (the PIM app against which all others should be judged).

Default Corporate App - J2ME Midlet for Wireless Global Address List Synchronisation

Don't even begin to ask how we ended up doing this but we have been synchronising a cut down version of our Global Address List with the handheld using Public Folders and Desktop Manager. The problem we have is that BES 4 won't wirelessly synchronise with a Public Folder, therefore, an application to do to this would be useful.

helo! glad to hear you are willing to develop apps for BB! I think a killer app, highly sought after would be to allow installing applications on a BB from a MAC and somethign that will let Mac users tether their BBs as a Modem. I dont think either should be too difficult, since its already possible on Windows...???? and the BB runs on JAVA (please correct me if i am wrong) and Java is supposed to be platform independent...???????

there are other apps which I can think of but are more niche. Mostly rooted in teh film industry. Let me knwo if you are interested in developing such stuff...
