One thing I always wanted for my iPhone, was the ability to take a screen shot of the application I am using. Why? Cause I do a lot of demos of search apps and social media apps and taking pictures with a camera is just not as good.

The iPhone will flash, like a camera, and place the image in the Photo's Camera Roll folder. Then you sync it to your computer or MobileMe or where-ever and you can include that screen shot anywhere.
