    Thought it would be good to start a Thread about what App's people would like to see added.

    Mine so far are;

    Lovefilm
    Wikipedia
    IMDB
    Amazon
    Play.com (mentioned in a review? but no sign atm)

    Good picks.

    Am I allowed to mention porn? HD-TV and the internet were basically made for it. I hope Virgin Media don't go all coy over it - but I expect they will. I won't be too specific here, but there are sites similar to YouTube that would fit neatly into the TiVo system.

    Spotify - they were in talks with vm a while back - then heard nothing.
    An simple email client would be a good idea

    Even better would be to release a devkit, and AppStore to choose which you actually want on your screen.

    ForumRunner or similer type app to allow forum reading. I say reading because without a keyboard things would be painful.

    What about Pizza Hut? :)

    And some kind of 'fitness' app because we pizza-app lovers may just need it. :p

    I'd like to see an RSS podcast downloader. I believe they offer this in the US.

    Do they even operate in the UK? I can't say I've had the pleasure to eat their pizzas. Actually, to be honest, the Domino's I had on Saturday was the first pizza takeaway I've had in 6 years!
    Pizza Hut don't operate takeaway in my area anymore, and I'm sure that I can use all those iPod/Wii/Xbox things to calculate my fitness xD
    Yes, Just-Eat is good for normal takeaways like Indian food and Chinese food, (as well as fish and chips!) which I've used on occassion, but not so good for pizza takeaways who don't seem to be on there in my area! Haha.

    An app for shoutcast streams would be nice as well.

    Here are some apps I would like to see in the near future:

    Facebook, Last.fm, Amazon, Play.com, Lovefilm, Spotify, Engadget, CNET, IMDB and Wikipedia.

    Perhaps not as an app, but the sort of remove server-based video-gaming described by The Register could be a good fit for VM's machine. It has its own network connection that is already good enough to deliver HD video, so it ought to be able to cope with the bandwidth needed for games. Doing that without eating into your broadband allowance would be a major benefit.
