    A good gym app with targets. iStayFit is what I used on the iphone. Far from perfect, but it did the job. I've got about every gym app loaded on my droid but none really do what I need them to do. I like to right down my workout with weights and reps beforehand, then workout with those weights. If I fail to complete a set I'll mark that down. If you want to get really specific, I'd love an app that is based on the Starting Strength program. Here's an excel file with several different version developed based on the program. Pretty much all of the calculations have already been done so might save some time for the right developer. It's been too many years since I've done any programming (Fortran, C, C++ and Java in college) so I doubt I'll attempt anything.

    I would like an app that changes my lock screen to show the titles of each of my emails, previews of text messages, and of GTalk messages. It should also have an option to change it to a rotary on-screen.

    When it is on the normal lock screen, the "lost phone" contact is at the bottom of the screen, with the different messaging services at the top with the back of the previews being transparent (not the text though).

    Each of the different previews of services would've their main icon next to them, with the name of the person who sent it being underneath it.

    It would be called Locked Message.

    Surfire has a shot timer app for iPhone. I'd love to have one for my Droid.

    Basically, a shot timer has a start button, and once pressed, it will beep within 5 seconds (random start time from start button is a bonus) and it "marks" each time it "hears" a gun shot.

    Then you can go back through and see how long to the first shot (timing how long it takes you to get out of the holster) and each follow up shot. I can't imagine that it would be difficult to do. A bonus would be if you could set a time limit as well, that would end with a beep.

    I have a few ideas; some seemingly simple, some more complicated.

    1. Using txt to speech and setting it as an alarm or reminder. There are tons of TTS programs, but none that will let me save the thought and set it to an alarm.

    2. A music app that helps train the ear. Basically a note would play and you would have to guess the note being played. I have come across something similar but it only lets you pick the key the note is in or if its a minor or major chord.

    3. ANY music or rhythm game would be nice.

    There is an app that allows you to set an appointment by voice, and it includes the subject. It is called Voice 2 Calendar. It is a paid app, but I don't believe it cost very much.

    What I actually want is to type in a reminder and it will use the tts software as an alarm.

    Like instead of a bell alarm, it would say something like "take your pill" or "buy milk"

    That seems like something that Tasker could pull off somehow.

    I believe what you want is the "Magic 8-ball" app.

    Still looking for app ideas

    I just joined the group and asked how one would get an idea made into an app and they sent me to you.

    Are you still looking for ideas? I've got a few.
