    If there is one thing you could add or make easier in Android what would get your vote?

    I am studying the Android platform and am interested in people's real world perspectives with respect to functionality, useability and accessibility.

    Bubs999,

    I just thought I'd poll opinion to see if there was a common recurring theme that people found lacking or frustrating. I guess with the number of apps available to extend the functionality of the platform in so many ways, people are generally satisfied with their Android device.

    Tonkerdog, I have never used apple but understand that the device location feature is accessible via their website and therefore you can use the browser on your Android device to access the site and login?

    I expect there's already an app for what I want but haven't found it yet (not tried too hard)

    I'd like an intervals app, a counter down timer that can be programmed with two or more set times.
    For example, count down from 5mins (time 1) to 0 then automatically count down from 30 secs (time 2)to 0 then 2mins to 0 (time 3) then repeat (time 2) and (time 3) 5 times (interval variable) then time 1 again. A different sound for the last 5 seconds of time period.

    Any ideas if its out there already?

    I'd love to see dual boot android or OS choice at first boot, so if you buy a samsung S5 or HTC one it comes as both play edition and the OEM version out the box, so I could choose to take touchwiz/sense or pure android and get the updates. I know Paul from modaco made a switch app to go between roms but I'd love to see one of the phones that has a play edition available have it built in without rooting
