I know that everyone gets crabby when a person asks for ideas about what to create as an app but this is where my lack of creativity annoys me. I can do the programming for it but I just cannot come up with the idea for it. I have tried browsing the app market but nothing stands out that I can use as a stepping stone.

It doesn't have to be the next big thing...just something that will be fun to put together. Hell...it may not even be submitted to the app market.

An app that would track shopping habits would be nice, where you can enter, what you bought, where you bought it and how much it was, and then compare it to other places, perhaps a cloud part so that other people could compare their shopping as well and find the best prices.

That is interesting. So say I bought my ssd from amazon on 2/1 for $180 and it would then it would compare it to other online shopping portals? Problem I see with that is that would tell me if I did or didn't get the best price after the purchase but not before and would save me money. What would be better would be shop comparison to give me that best price before I buy. Another section could be a wishlist.

Video/games don't really interest me. I am thinking something like information/productivity. I can tell you that one app on the app store that just blows my mind is pulse. It is stunning.

if your still taking ideas,

I really want to get the Philips Hue lights for my apartment. I have seen some cool stuff done with them on the open api for iphone and ive seen it being used through a Linux ssh into the system as well!

Ive seen nothing on the windows 8 or windows phone 8 platform yet for this, and it puts me off buying it..

Would pay for this!!

How bout an App to get rid of the start panel. Just kidding. Just figured I might as well be the first to post a comment like that.
You did mention it was an app for a tablet, so the start panel does serve a purpose.

Seriously? I just don't see the appeal of Pulse. And it's really slow/choppy, they don't use the WinJS FlipView so it feels awful with touch. The main view is just a bunch of pictures. Pretty I guess, but not really useful.

Just my opinion though :-) At least their iOS version seems more polished. I still don't find it that useful though.
