Place your ideas here so developer will know.
The developers should be able to get plenty of ideas for needed apps by looking through this forum. I don't see how creating yet another thread of apps people want is going to improve anything. I appreciate what you're trying to do knottyrope, I just don't have any confidence that it will help.
As for RIM, I've given up on getting suggestions to them. They aren't listening. They have a plan (at least I hope they do) that they have no intention of sharing with their customers and all we can do is wait to see if their plan will ever make the Playbook useful. Until then, I leave my Playbook in the rapid charging stand at home in case I want to surf the net without having to turn on my computer. I really don't have any other use for it right now.

It is so the developer dont have to comb the forums and gives the users a place to put the in one place that a develpoer can access. bridging the gap is a way.
it is win win for everyone.

After I have posted in the other thread, I had some thoughts..... and they hurt!
Yes, we (the users) need a spot for a list of suggestions
Yes, we (the users) need a way to rate / approve / say yes about an app
No, I don't think using the Kudo buttons will get the 'votes' on the apps right.
Yes - someone could make / maintain a full list of the apps, but the voting issue is still going to be a pain, not to mention the problem of still having to search through a thread of asked for apps to find the ones that are most voted on.
We need more options in the forum, or some other way to deal with this.

There's a good thread over on crackberry forums - there's a 12 page thread that lists wants and suggestions.
I honestly hope RIM is listening to the feedback. They should assume that their OS for their Blackberry is obsolete and they are being trampled by competitors (the sales figures don't lie.).
QNX is their future, so every effort they spend in building out the app world community, User interface for playbook, promoting developer community, and partnering with BIG players (net flix, skype, etc) will all serve to build RIM's future.
This future starts with good customer service, strong technical staff to support customers, and a strong development team to address making the playbook along with blackberry product a solid winning combination.
