I'm trying to come up with some ideas on creating a new web app. I want it to be a useful web app for business.

Anyone have any itches that need to be scratched?

    community wiki. – John T Jul 21 '09 at 20:37
  • I don't think this is a community wiki–appropriate question. It will probably have one answer, being whichever donnyv chooses to create. Individual ideas also won't really need to be edited. – jtbandes Jul 21 '09 at 20:39

    This is a discussion and it's subjective... there is no real answer to "what would YOU like"... its an opinion. – John T Jul 21 '09 at 20:40

    -1, I'm a bit tired of these questions in the site. 'What's your favorite x?' 'what would you like for x?'... – Adriano Varoli Piazza Jul 21 '09 at 21:13

Music players and photo viewers.

I want to upload my media files once (or purchase the rights for digital media), and have all my devices able to play them anywhere.

  • True, But i am not familiar with any implementation that looks good. – Adam Matan Jul 27 '09 at 20:07
  • @Michael Haren Where? – Donny V Jul 30 '09 at 14:04
  • Try some of these... mp3tunes.com – Donny V Nov 25 '09 at 20:56
  • Sorry have to post each url as a comment since it doesn't recognize carriage returns. – Donny V Nov 25 '09 at 20:57

Something that can compete with Microsoft Excel. There's EditGrid, but it's slow, unintuitive at times, and lacks a lot of features.

I also had another idea about a year ago. What about a service that lets you upload all of your music onto a server, and then have a Flash-based on-the-web media player to play the music from any computer, at any time? I'm not talking about something like Grooveshark, I'm talking a full-blown media player, like Windows Media Player or iTunes, for the web. I never started this project because the initial costs would be too high, but that may or may not be a problem for you.

  • What about Google Docs? – Adam Matan Jul 27 '09 at 20:08
  • Google Spreadsheets is a joke. There is no way it can compete with Microsoft Excel for anything except very simple spreadsheets that need to be hosted online. – Sasha Chedygov Jul 28 '09 at 7:42
  • If Google Spreadsheets is a joke then I have no chance. ;-) – Donny V Oct 23 '09 at 12:25

I'm still waiting for a good Web-based Editor for development. Mozilla has Bespin1, but it's not exactly ready to be used, judging from my experience with it in the past.

1. https://bespin.mozilla.com/ and http://labs.mozilla.com/projects/bespin/


An IM client that encompasses all the different ones out there: Yahoo, AOL IM, MSN, IRC, etc. Like Trillian or Pidgin, but for the web.

That way I don't have to install the client on every computer I own/access.
