Hopefully we can get some of the developers interested in coming up with Programs for the BB OS. I know SplashData have SplashID for the BB.
I think a lot of those sound nice. However, I think you need to differentiate between features you would like to see on the BB, and programs you would like to see. The way the BB is designed, it isn't possible for a programmer to get full control of the hardware like it is on a Palm or Windows Mobile device. I suspect that the only way you could ever see a voice dialing or voice memo app, is if RIM decided to include them in the OS, because I don't think a third party developer could get enough control of the hardware to make that happen. That is like how I would really like to see HTML support in the email program. The problem is that there is no way a third party developer can just add HTML support to the existing mail client. You would have to completely replace the mail system with a whole new client which would then lose the benefit of all the BB push features, and have to just pull the mail, or have it's own server to push the mail.
I'm not talking about a wish list of features I'd like to see RIM add, I'm just talking about third-party software I'd like to see on the BB.
