Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
iPhone (Jailbroken): If you hate responding to texts on your phone and would prefer to do it on the desktop, DeskSMS will let you answer your messages via any IM client that supports Google Chat (or you can just use GChat in your browser). It requires a jailbreak and you might run into some setup issues, but it's definitely worth the trouble.
iOS: When Apple added AirPrint, it was a nice feature in theory but didn't really support many printers and certainly had no support for PDF printing. While there are workarounds, if you want to save content on your iPhone to a PDF file with just a few taps, Print to PDF is the best app for the job.
Android: Even if you're on the Do Not Call register, you may still get frequent calls from businesses with your number or friends or family that won't leave you alone. Call Filter is an Android app that lets you selectively block calls from numbers you don't want to see, or block all numbers that aren't in your contact list.
iOS: iPhones are not exactly great at handling files regardless of where they come from, but downloading anything from the web is particularly problematic. Meteoric Download Manager (MDM) makes it easy to grab files from a simple URL, a web page, and various other sources at fast speeds. Plus, there's plenty you can do with those files once you've got 'em.
iOS users have long had the ability to control their cameras with their iPhones and iPads, but DSLR Controller now brings that to Android for your Canon DSLR.
iOS: AirPlay is great if you have a Mac or an AppleTV, but if you want your iPhone's music on other devices you're out of luck. AirMusic solves that problem by serving up your iPhone's library on DLNA-compliant devices like the Xbox 360 and PS3, as well as some TVs and set top boxes. You can even stream to Windows Media Player.
