    First, RIM put a PLAYBOOK filter on the web version of the App World...it might be a little humiliating to show how little there is now but it is-what-it-is and it is easier to use and maybe a few more developers will see opportunities to move to the platform.

    Unfortunately i can't develop my way out of a paper-bag but hopefully some of you out there can and will develop PlayBook apps. These are things i would pay for that are not necessarily owned categories like Skype, DropBox, PageOnce, or Kayak all of which we can only hope will come.

    I would pay for an app that:

    1. Uses BB phone keyboard to type on Playbook
    2. RDP, well covered and coming
    3. Find My PB
    4. Letter Dialer - already free on phones - someone should whip it out for fame and glory, even if it can't dial the phone you can look-up on PB and dial from any phone - desk or bb
    5. Dial MY BB from PB contacts - cross integration click to call
    6. Add To features
    7. Exit Strategy - 2.0 level, rip it they are not developing for BB anymore
    8. City Guides - probably coming but a great entry for anyone who has the content BB users travel a lot - integrate local ads for rev
    9. DWG viewer
    10. Maxi Vista type of function for occasional integration with desktop
    11. Call logging, it would be nice to receive consolidated call reports - not stuffed in my calendar but organized - maybe put a calendar entry with the full list of made with details, missed with contact info from contacts, and received with details, allow the user to set times for the logs to enter the calendar as an appointment (everyday at 4PM type of thing)
    12. Bookmarks for PB browser - back-up or org utility, seems like OS updates wipe out bookmarks currently
    13. How to enable your gps app - sell a ton of those right now!
    14. SMS sender - probably, hopefully a bridge app forthcoming
    15. RSS reader like News 360 would be killer


    Please tell the Dev community what you would pay for, maybe we can help focus some interest on the platform.

    After early hiccups on day one, I went from hating my Playbook to loving it. There's just one problem: no Twitter app!!!

    How can we tweet about our Playbooks without a twitter app? RIM is missing out on a great word-of-mouth opportunity.

    I would pay for a decent twitter app like Social Scope or Tweetdeck.

    I agree with SocialScope or a Tweetdeck - I personally cant stand the new Twitter site.

    I've never bought an app ever, and probably never will. Maybe will a GOOD game in the future. But I just never use them, even the free ones I download, I can count the ones I use on one hand.

    Home automation would be great, maybe someone could even make some blackberry x10 modules that didn't look like they were made int he 70's, something sleek and with a ton of USB recharging ports on it too!

    Roboform or even a key on the keyboard for your own email which is 50% of the usernames out there maybe a hotkey utility???

    are must haves, since it is a "business" tablet

    Tweetdeck (or similar)
    Score Network (which I hear is coming)
    BBM

    would make my workday a whole bunch more fun.

    These are MUST-BUY for me:
    - PDF reader like GoodReader.
    - Offline GPS Navigation, Navigon or Tomtom.
    - Calendar/GTD task manager, my first choice would be Pocket Informant
    - Bento

    Actually I also bought a lot games for iDevices, for Playbook, I may buy EA games.

    A Working Printer App
    Angry Birds
    Fruit Ninja
    Dropbox (although, if that appears on PB, it better be free).
    SocialScope (I would not mind seeing them take a crack at a good Twitter application for PB. Tweedless is not doing it for me).
