I would like to see a Mail app. You could check and send mail to villagers from anywhere on the island, rather than checking the postbox and sending mail at the airport. You could unlock the app after you have sent 50 letters, and you could use Nook Miles to buy exclusive mail designs only accessible to those who have unlocked the app. These could include special-character-themed mail designs such as Tom Nook, or a villager's mail design (e.g.Wart Jr.) once you have scanned in their Amiibo.
How about a craigslist/ebay app? An app where you can post your items for selling/auction and also for trades. It would also have a free section where you can post that furniture you don't want to sell and just giveaway to people.
The app could be used both by villagers and by your circle of friends (maybe even a worldwide thing).
I think this would streamline the whole process of trading stuff and getting extra bells for that furniture people are going crazy for.

Feel free to send me a message! I love chatting with new people.
Omg can I have all those apps please?! Those are great!!!
I was thinking about something that I saw on KH3. It was a small feature on the loading screen that made the game extra special. It was a social media post that featured different characters in the game. So, I’d love to see some sort of social media app that would feature your villagers, your other island mates and even friends from different islands! You could use hashtags and filters on your images and potentially even have villagers and friends comment on your images, and the ability to do the same on other’s posts. Villagers and islanders alike can post new clothes they wore, new bugs and fish they caught, or featuring their favorite activity on their island. This would be a cool feature and app to see in the game!

Be yourself, everyone else is already taken!
I would love to see an app that allows you to create a "touristic guide" to your island, as in people who come to your island can enter this app and read/follow a path that you design, so you can help visitors see the island as you want them to. To further this concept, it would be pretty neat if you could do air views of determined areas and to be able to create "landmarks" which appear in the map just like the houses of villagers and shops. I would call it "Tourism Package" and you can purchase different upgrades to this app for Nook Miles.
A Trading app would be really cool, i believe it would act like the pokemon GTS, you can offer up an item of choice and request and item of choice after connecting to the internet and you can look through the list of items and choose someone to trade with! The next time you connect you'll recieve the item you wanted from the trade if it's been traded
Honestly, I'd like to see a social media app like Facebook/Twitter where Animal Crossing: New Horizons players could post and upload about what they're currently doing inside the game, and also upload a picture of their island. Then other Animal Crossing: New Horizons can comment on your posts.
I'd also like to see an Instagram-type like app where you can post and upload photos of your creations in Animal Crossing: New Horizons from players all over the world.
A few days left to enter! Some great submissions so far!

How about... An app that tells you, what the item of the day is at the Retail Store. Also what the price is for Turnips. That way you don’t have to go all the way to the Retail Store and go through two conversations to get a couple quick questions answered. If it’s trash, then you saved yourself a trip across your island. Now you can go about your important mayoral duties!

I think it would be awesome to have some sort of calendar app where you can put notes for events, have villager birthdays added birthday party invitation added), and that you can add your own events or reminders for yourself of something you need to do that day. If there is some sort of event that you've added or default (like fishing tourney or something), then have a pitfall "!" little icon on the app?
So this might be a stretch, but I'd love to see a Music App. I think we can all agree one of the best moments was spending time watching K.K. Slider perform just to see what song you'll get. You'd then go home, put it in the music player and listen to it. Imagine, in New Horizons a Music app, where you unlock songs and can listen to anywhere on the island. I had the idea from playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, where you would find old Cassettes on the map that you could put into your Walkman and listen to while exploring the world. It would be a similar concept. You would unlock a new track each K.K. Slider concert you went to and be able to listen to different songs anywhere on the map, and even create your own playlists.
What would be cool if they implement it from New Leaf, IF you wish to Restart your Island and get something out of it.. Like when you Sell your Town in new leaf. The Town Value App. You check it and Rather go through the Dialogue and or Risking say if you Don't meet Requirements to sell in New leaf, You can also See how much your Town is worth for like how many Bells for like Bragging Rights or Even if you wish to Start over again and have some bells to Restart the island.
(This is if they put in the Sell Town/island option from new leaf, unknown if they will put it back in the game)
IF we had a reset button on AC.. Mr Resetii will go crazy
Congrats to our winners, KelvinNakken and MayorMelody! Both will receive 20 points in ACC's Point System.
Thank you to everyone who participated. There were a lot of good ideas and judging was tough.
KelvinNakken's app idea:
"I would love to see a weather forecast app. This allows players to plan weather related activities in the long run"
MayorMelody's app idea:
"I think an app that calls a villager to come to you would be awesome, or at least tells you their location on the map It would come in handy when another villager asks you to deliver a package to them
(I always feel a little silly wandering around town repeating a villager's name a dozen times with the megaphone.....especially when I'm not the only one in the room Never does a whisper feel so LOUD)"
Let's go Gophers! Ski-U-Mah!
Sorry, I don't accept random FCRs.
