iPhone App Requests Featuring Screenshots Detailed

It seems like everyone has a wishlist for iPhone applications these days—I myself have dreamed up eight. However, Phillip Ryu has taken it a step further by envisioning detailed mockups of his ideal apps (Update: It was brought to my attention that Josh Pyles collaborated on the visuals).

Ryu’s proposals, which can be seen in his blog post titled 5 iPhone Apps I’d Like To See From Apple, include innovative ideas such as an Archive.org/Ebook reader, an iPhone version of the iTunes Store, a drawing application (Skitch for iPhone), a VoIP service, and a simplified iMovie for iPhone that would allow basic video editing and sharing via .Mac, YouTube, and Mail. The mockups are impressively detailed, adhering to the iPhone’s design standards with large, easy-to-navigate buttons and clear, readable text.

We’re all hopeful that recent hints of genuine iPhone app development, set to debut with Leopard in October, are more than just rumors.
