    I would like to see the ability to have one input method for portrait (Shape Writer or Swype) and another for landscape mode (standard Android)

    i don't actually use pop for anything but it would be nice to have in case i ever needed it.


    i dont see it being an issue for the 2nd largest email provider in the world to offer such a service without the need to have gmail pull that info.

    I would like to be able to use Shape Writer only on the small keyboard. I usually would only use it for short messages.

    A delay setting so that the after turning off the screen, the lock screen isn't shown when you turn the screen back on until after the delay period has expired. This would prevent having to unlock the droid a thousand times a day.

    Lock Delay has this feature, but it doesn't work with 2.2.

    2.2 is pretty rock solid. There aren't any new features I particularly need, but they really need to update some of the stock apps. Music, Camera, and Phone are all ugly as sin. They also need to replace the default launcher with LauncherPro - it's 10x better than what comes with stock Android. Other than that, it's just about perfect!

    The only thing that I'd like to see to help out stock users, even though I'm rooted, is the ability to customize the notification bar colors/icons.

    Yeah the Devour I had for a month and half had this feature. As well as the pin-unlock. Not sure if it's a Motoblur wide feature or just for that one, but it was nice. Could set screen time-out for like 2 minutes, and then the security timeout for 20 minutes.

    A lot of little things:

    1) Ability to change brightness without having to go through Settings. Apps like locale do this, but some code prevents changes from taking effect until phone sleeps and then back on.

    2) I think some apps now do this, but I would like the screen to come on for 5-10 minutes if you get an email, text, etc.. Probably a security issue.

    3) Along the lines of the above, I would like a display setting that uses the accelerometer to wake (unlocked!). So if I pick up my phone off the desk, it is "aware" and wakes itself without having to hit the button.

    4) Push exchange (works for stock corp email, not K9 because of some unlocked API or something).

    5) Quick double-click camera button to place a call or end a call.

    6) Speech-to-text button added to Swype (probably Swype issue, not Android).

    7) Mobile browser that fits websites to landscape - seems to default to portrait mode and wastes the extra width in landscape.

    8) More ram! OK, can't do that so maybe virtual ram.

    9) Universal sync/auto-refresh controls that apps can default to. Maybe have 3 levels or so with multiple timing settings (i.e. refresh all my new apps on level 2 every hour).

    10) Ability to customize task bar, dropping shortcuts and "widgets" to it (think there's an app out there where you can add the phone button).

    Group contacts on the phone itself. I like to be able to create contact groups so I can message them all or once. We can make them on a computer but I can't see a way to bring them over into the stock contact system.

    I would like to see the video fill the screen automatically and not show everything in letterbox. I use RealPlayer just for that purpose only but YouTube still does not show in full screen.

    I know you're talking about the stock messaging app, but just an FYI: I use ChompSMS, and your google contact groups show up there and allows you to message the whole group.
