We here at BlackBerry Dev Rel want to know your thoughts on the current state of our WebWorks API/Extensions.
So, in this thread, if you could be so kind as to answer the following questions, you'll make my day and you'll help make the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK a bettet place to code! It's clearly a win-win situation.
And that's it! Your feedback will be compiled (by me) and then presented to our super awesome WebWorks team here at BlackBerry. Your help is greatly appreciated.

Here is a first shot.
I'm excluding all comments regarding frameworks support, design material, etc. as they're not directly API related.

Kalman (writing an ext right now) but that is a selfish requirement
As I see it the population at large needs the following
#1 Touch Gestures
#2 A working Sim / Fix Ripple
#3 Decent documentation

Oh - personallly, and I think this applies for many others
A Notepad++ build + install plugin
This one is #-1 million on mine, the single most important thing I see happening
The functionality should be...
1.1) Saves project
12) Creates Zip
1.3) Move Zip to deployment area
1.4) Gets last BuildId - adds 1
2.1) Install on device / sim on demand
2.1 is a nightmare

I find developing for Blackberry super simple. I went with BBUI.js which allows me to develop the same look and feel across most BB devices with little change to each platform. Thats a plus.
My gripes though are (numbers not linked to yours):

MUST to include
1º SmartTag native app invokation for barcode scanning
2º An invokation calendar: now we can add Calendar events, but if we go to the calendar event directly could be interesting that when we do a click on this event invoke our app. So calendar and our app could be 100% integrated.
