What I want from the iPhone SDK

The top story on Techmeme at the movement is about the iPhone SDK and speculation that it may not ship in February.

My guess is that it will either ship later in the week or early March so I’m not terribly worried about this.

I do have high hopes for the SDK and what will be possible when it’s in the hands of the community of developers.

My wish list for native apps:

-wireless calender sync with MS Exchange server.
-local search across iphone calender & address book
-dial phone numbers directly from calender
-video camera
-task manager that syncs with some desktop or web service. ideally exchange but I’ll even take iCal
-wireless gcal sync 

I continue to have a love/hate relationship with my iphone. I used it exclusively on vacation because my Verizon Blackberry Pearl doesn’t work outside of the US. I forwarded all of my Spark email to my gmail account. I discovered that Gmail on the iphone is about a billion times better than dealing with Exchange email. It’s faster and more reliable.

But I struggled with iPhone.

My wish list would make me love it again.
