    Hi there,

    Thought we'd have a nice friendly discussion/listing of the APPS we might want to see on the PB whether they are already in the BB ecosystem or not yet.

    I will list mine first and then let's see where we can go with this, maybe even someone from the software company or RIM is listening - you never know !

    Please don't tell people what websites can do what they want from the apps, chances are they know this already, and it will just detract from the thread being about what apps people would like to see on the PB.

    Ok my list of apps I would really like to see are :

    1) Real VNC (available iOS)
    2) TuneIN Pro (available BB)
    3) Sky+ (available iOS)
    4) Trillian (available BB)
    5) Flight Control (available iOS)
    6) World of Goo HD (available iOS)
    7) Articles (available iOS)
    8) VKontakte (available iOS)
    9) Google Plus (available iOS)
    10) VLC (available iOS - sort of)
    11) Angry Birds (available iOS)
    12) Skype (available iOS)
    13) Tapatalk (available BB)
    14) FlightTrack/FlightBoard (available iOS)
    15) Chess/Words/Hanging With Friends (available iOS)
    16) SlingPlayer (available iOS)
    17) Speed Test (available iOS)
    18) WikiTravel (available iOS)
    19) PuzzleBobble/NewPuzzleBobble (available iOS)

    Right thats my list ! I've included if they're already available for another platform - that would be a very impressive start if I got all of that tomorrow in App World

    Considering the browser on Playbook many of the Apps I use on iPad are not needed.

    But there is definately a lack of key 3rd party Apps. What's interesting is the ones listed so far I have no desire for, I'm sure they would be nice to have but it speaks to the one App doesn't fit all concept and the notion that the Apps you care about are not the same as mine etc.

    I have (patiently) been waiting for any of these (in no order of need)

    - USA Today
    - Wall Street Journal
    - CNBC
    - Comcast Xfinity (love to manage my DVR with this)
    - Google Maps
    - Citrix Receiver (corporate) and yes I have the preview
    - GoToMyPC (for personal)
    - Webex (corporate)
    - ESPN
    - MLB at bat
    - NBC
    - ABC
    - Hulu (not that I use it but it's a popular one)
    - Skype (not that I use it but it's a popular one)
    - Zynga games (mob, vampire etc)
    - Weather channel
    - IM (AIM, MS Live etc)
    - Bing (like the iPad one)
    - OpenTable
    - Yelp!
    - Trip Advisor

    The only thing that I would enjoy is...
    The Xbox Live application as it is available on Apple devices and WP7 devices!

    Ebook reader - Gobooks (sideload)
    - works great for me. Excellent features.

    FTP - AndFTP (sideload)
    - allows folder downloads! LiteFTP, or any from appworld can't do that.

    Musicplayer. - Winamp. (sideload)
    - works great, make multiple playlists, move tunes around within playlists.

    Maps - GoogleMaps
    - a little buggy,but does the trick for maps and satellite images. I like making screen shots of Google-earth maps and saving them for hikes.

    As for apps from appworld, I haven't found to many besides:

    Splashtop for remote desktop contro
    Files&Folders - I like the zip features
    LiteFTP - can't download folders, but decent

    Buy Machinarium - Download Machinarium - Buy Games from BlackBerry App World

    I'd recommend this to both gamers and non-gamers because this is the first app which makes me feel that worth the bucks on Apps World
