    Hello!


    Now I love my Droid... but I have some (cool?) ideas that maybe you will like if implemented in a future release of the Android OS so maybe we can all enjoy these features. Please tell me what you think about these ideas below:



    System Usability Enhancements


    I) Trash Can - Yes we know dragging a icon to the bottom to the handle, turning it red, displaying a trash can rids the area of the dragged item, but wouldn't it be cool if we had a Droid trash can? Deleted a program, song, picture, etc... on accident, or want it back quickly? It'd be cool if we had a trash basket we could go in, clean out, or restore items.


    II) Non-continuous Screen Lock Patterns - Ever wanted to make a design pattern for your screen lock that has a minimum of 4 dots, but didn't have to be continuous? I think this will also increase security measures.


    III) Delete Gallery Folder - Ever wanted to just wipe out a full folder of pictures, instead of individually? I think this would be a cool feature. I know it can be done alternatively through other apps, but it would be nice to have the feature ready from the native system.


    GUI Enhancements


    I) Up, and Down screens... - Now on your droid, you can scroll left, and right which unveils new screens for usage. I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if we also were able to scroll up and down @ our home screen? It would be a different take on the phone experience (I have yet to see a phone do this, maybe I shouldn't put this idea out there? lol) and will also enable larger wallpaper selections.


    II) What Time Is It? Wallpapers - Would you like it if (of course with 2.1) there were certain wallpapers that changed according to the time of day? What about in real time? Could you imagine having a wallpaper of a farm, that gets darker and darker as the hours go by? Of course these wallpapers will be synced with your system clock. Or is this already an option in 2.1?


    III) Landscape Anywhere - I think an option for turning your home screen into Landscape mode without needing the keyboard open would be cool. More coolness than usability, but the fit or holding it that way sometimes is just very comfortable. It would be nice to see your wallpapers in landscape anytime also.



    User Experience Enhancements


    I) Welcome Home - How about after launching up your Droid, and unlocking it, you have the option to have a song play at your home screen? This doesn't technically benefit the user, but boy, wouldn't that be awesome for some users? The users who love music, I think will enjoy this feature. A nice welcome. Of course options to turn this off will be of quick access. Also, songs wouldn't have to be only used, you can use any sound, regardless of length to welcome you to your phone.



    Application Cooperation Enhancements


    I) Copy Google Translation - Ever want to copy a translation from the Google Translator app and paste it in a text message to send to a loved one, or just sound cool? I think the option of copying the text from the translator would be cool, and usable.


    P.S. If any of these are available via the native system, please let me know. If you don't like some of these ideas? Please be vocal about it, and maybe offer a suggestion, or a supporting reason for your disapproval? I won't get angry if you disagree, we are all humans... well sorta... :icon_ devil:

    Last but not least, I want to hear you alls ideas!

    I think the wall paper is a great idea and I hope to see some like that. I know google themes for google.com/ig has this on the theme I use.

    Thank you a lot. You will love your Droid when you get it.

    Thank you a lot.

    Hopefully Google can somehow come across this thread, and/or implement these features.

    Did you know you spelled "coffee" wrong in your username?

    More importantly, I highly doubt the developers of the OS are reading this forum and interested in your ideas. I know that sounds mean, but it's most likely 99% true.

    I'm full aware on the wordplay on my username. I left it out on purpose. Thanks for reminding me though.

    I'm a realist. I fully understand that it is very unlikely that they would be roaming this forum, and say "wow, we should use these ideas". Thats why I said "hopefully"... because nothing is impossible.

    Now, would you mind commenting on the ideas, positive, negative, it doesn't matter. Thanks. :)

    You asked for it, so my comments are in red bold italic. Sorry if they seem pessemistic but I really don't care for all that show off stuff. I want my phone to operate as quick as possible with the least amount of bull**** possible. I hate little frilly things that take up too much space and operating power.

    Oooh! A challenge! You will have to excuse me, I kind of feed off of these things...

    Ok, first and foremost, let me make clear if it wasn't. I know some apps do some of these ideas, and some hacks, but that is totally different from the the native system executing these functions. Ok... lets proceed...

    Ok! Done. I didn't come to this site to be a debating, debunking, dork (triple d's?) cause that usually leads people to calling you another "d" name that isn't so kind. LOL I'm going back to my happy state! lol

    Its been fun!
