    This is not a survey but I'd like to hear from the community what is still missing in terms of software for the Pandora (non-game software).


    I have a few things I'd like to see, personally:


    - Something like Skype for voice calls... (and AS easy to use).


    - A fully featured twitter/Facebook client (like Gwibber or others...)


    - Dropbox or dropbox equivalent...


    How about you ? Anything else you'd like to do with your Pandora that you can't do presently ?

    Something like Game Maker. It would be awesome to make and play your games on the OP.

    This may be a little far fetched, how about trying a Saturn emulator, I'm itching to play Radiant Silvergun.


    Or Sega NAOMI..but that's basically Dreamcast emulating....a man can dream :)

    Saturn gets my vote too, altho Saturn emulation is difficult, so i am not sure if it will run good on the current hardware.


    That console got a bunch of gems i never played, such as Albert odyssey, dragon force 1 and 2, langerisser IV, Shining Force III..

    Game Editor has been ported, though I haven't tried it on the Pandora myself.

    An improved Android build would suffice :) at least dropbox and facebook works fine. Skype, chat-only, no calls

    I mentioned "non-game" related :)

    No so many viruses on Linux, though ? :)

    I very much doubt you'll see any playable Saturn emulator anytime soon, but it's off-topics :)

    Only one person interested by this or several ?
