Midweek Boredom Thought Exercise

So here's the background: I emailed Dave Plati a while back about the possibility of getting the Dan Hawkins Show, and BG Brooks's stuff, and the press conferences available for download, because I'm too stupid to remember to listen at the right times, and I spend a lot of time with my headphones plugged in. In passing, I mentioned that I thought they should just make an iphone app. He said that there was some stuff in development along those lines. So here are the questions (at least to smart phone owners): Is that something you'd want and use? Would you pay for it? If so, how much? What OS are you running? What about a free, limited option w/ ads? What features would you want?

I'd love to respond with some positive ideas for them based on the opinions of our most rabid fans. 

For me, I'd want all of the multimedia available for streaming, as well as live game streaming (maybe KOA could be a partner). Also schedules, maybe some downloadable wallpaper and/or ringtones, and opt in push notifications. You could tie it in with a regular online cubuffs.com account. And of course the requisite fund raising links. I would pay for it (quite a bit, depending on how robust the app), and I would still allow fairly unobtrusive ads (maybe a 15 second spot before audio, or a tiny bottom thread ad). Look, we need all the cash we can get. So what say you, internet Buff fan denizens?
