A musical instrument app

Or maybe just a fart app.

Musical fart app?

Web browser?

Maybe try this? Needs a virtual keyboard but I don't mind working it if there's any interest.

?es, please!

A podcatcher to stream and download audio podcasts would be a great addition, too.

Personally, I'd like to see emulators for the console systems that are capable of using the GCW's Rumble feature. I'm not sure if this is possible for each emulator to communicate with the motor, but it would add a nice touch to the games that use it.

I'd definitely be interested in this with a virtual keyboard, plus would make it much easier to connect to networks that make you to agree to terms and conditions before use (airports, etc.)

*Listen music while you?re playing a game on the gcw zero.

This is a start https://github.com/alexandrevicenzi/gcw_mic

I'm to busy now, but I want to finish.

Thank you so much to make this good app for the GCW Zero :)

It would also be nice to have an app that lets you connect the zero to a pc as a wireless gamepad  :)

Something like  "EmulationStation", one app for all the emulators.

An e-mail client would be cool.

I agree that a PSX emulator is sorely needed. It's the only feature I miss on the console, specially since other open consoles do emulate the system.

Other than that, I'm fine with what we have. I suppose an epub reader would be nice but I don't particularly need it, so dunno  ;)

Howbout an XBConnect like tool only for emulators instead of consoles? i.e. search from within Zero via "GCWConnect"(running on a machine on the same network) other players of the same emulator/rom for netplay? Or host games on it? :o

Basically a netplay middleware for GCW emulators?

one app that would be nice to have is one that was meant to be integrated at some point, an app that links to a up to date database to make it easier to prevew, install, keep apps up to date like I'm so used to on the Pandora..

Or maybe just have the games listed in a games repo so we can maybe use(in the interim) CLI aptitude/apt-get?
Would be hard to use CLI without keyboard support...

A client for downloading software is not a problem. The problem is designing a solid repository system. Clients that just wget and parse a HTML page are a bad idea, since if one thing changes in the website layout - they stop working. The client<->repo system needs to be resilient to changes in the website structure and must guarantee that the end user won't run into any issues obtaining software from it. GCW Zero/OpenDingux is a small project - a single annoyed person can easily affect the entire community. We can't afford stupid mistakes.

I think what purewickedau was driving at is where is this "solid repository system" and the app that goes along with it?

GCW Zero/OpenDingux is a small project - a single annoyed person can easily affect the entire community. We can't afford stupid mistakes.

Why would anyone other than the maintainer of the repository have access to it to the point where it affects the entire community to begin with? Isnt there a due process for these kinds of things in the first place?

http://repo.openpandora.org/ is what I'd suggest emulating, it's great if any of you devs happen to also own a Pandora and have used it (looks more basic on the Pandora) http://repo.openpandora.org/?page=detail&app=pndmanager-bzar is what I'm using on the actual Pandora

I fully agree with this suggestion. Something like this would be great for organizing all of my emulators. Choose a game and it boots up.
