    Here's a couple of ideas:
    A fault reporting app that can post calls to a helpdesk for staff or those in the hall annoyances
    Another vote for the admin app, you could get it to hit powershell over SSL to make it a tad easier

    Both of these apps are probably rather complecated though but are ideas none the less.

    I like the asset tagging idea.

    Not very IT related apart from your skills in making it:

    For the speed thingy, i think an app where you input your destination and it works out how much time you'll save based on how much faster you go over the speed limit. It's not really a lot on short trips, and i think would be useful to show people how stupid it is to drive recklessly for the sake of 5 mins, risking so many things. You'd need to add in a feature to make ppl use it though, so the "driving at 80 instead of 70, will only save you 8 mins over an hour" message is more of an aside. Perhaps a list of all service stations with Starbucks, or KFC...

    Better still, whatabout, voice activated app, that will control an LED display on the rear car window to flash messages to people. 1) Stay back you crazy fool, 2) I have an Axe. 3) I see aliens 4) Get off MY planet! 5) I spy with my little eye some thing .... 6) I can't see your headlights 7) Can you see my brake lights? 8) Child-hater on board etc.

    Or view the event log on my phone.

    Remote shutdown/WOL any computer from my phone.

    just a few ideas.
    Isn't there one to do this already. There are apps for this sort of thing on a desktop, i'd thought they were already ported to phones by now.

    Oooh, i've a good one, but may need access to the 'Geek db. What about a proximity app for other edugeekers. sort of along the lines of foursquare who is near you etc. but a way for any enrolled member to show where they are and also see other geeks. Find-A-Geek.

    and i just remembered that awesome idea from BETT, Bump-Your-Trump , sysman's EduTrumps combined with the bump application

    Going back to the barcode thing, the Google App Inventor has a control already set up for reading barcodes.
