For the most part I’m very happy with my Google Android driven T-Mobile G1. The Android Market is continually growing as new free apps appear every day to fill almost any type of need. However there are a number of things still missing that I wish would be addressed and added soon. Below is my list of the top 7 features/apps that I’d like to see added soon. Hopefully some of these features/functions will be implemented in the next update release of Android call Cupcake that’s rumored to occur sometime late in January.
1. Wireless Transfer of Files – How cool would it be to share music, photos, and other files wirelessly between devices? I currently can’t do this with the bluetooth abilities of the phone.
2. Screenshot App – This would enable me to take quick screenshots of my G1 and post or share them.
3. Record Video – I believe this ability is coming soon with the next update release of Android.
4. Record Phone Calls – This would be extremely useful for archiving your conference calls and for personal reference needs. I could see an app like this selling big time, especially if the app included the ability to search through the recordings!
5. Screen Recording App – Akin to Camtasia this app would permit someone to record video footage of the G1′s screen and couple it with an external audio input to capture the narrator’s voice. A non-app alternative to this would be to port the G1′s screen to a computer monitor and record it in real time using Camtasia.
6. Install Apps On Memory Cards – Currently we are limited to installing all apps by default to the G1′s internal memory source. With a relatively a small amount of memory available, you can quickly fill it up and cause your G1 to slow. To some extent I am okay with this limitation because I can’t load my phone with tons of useless apps that I never use. However, as the Android Market grows more apps that require larger storage requirements will be added and thus the need arises.
7. Local Radio App – This may not sound like a very pressing need but I can assure you that people still listen to their local radio stations and like to stay connected locally. Using my Moto Q, I use to access TheStreamCenter and listen to my local radio stations but I can’t do that anymore using my G1. Moreover, at times when your power is out in your home and the tornado sirens go off, as they did today, local radio stations can provide you with the most up-to-date weather information that’s critical for your safety.If you liked this article, please take this time to share it with your Facebook friends using the Facebook button (see Facebook post button to the left) or retweet it using Twitter (see retweet button to the left).
