None of the above.

What you describe is just a niche. So anything not specifically associated with bitcoin would suffice.

What comes to mind:
File Hosting Services / Usenet Access
Adult Websites
Ebay and Amazon

Though while the first one already happed paysites will adopt it sooner or later. But the latter one is a whole different story and while it would make bitcoin incredibly successful I not yet consider it a killer app.

A killer App for bitcoin is so beyond the comprehension of most people who are into bitcoin right now and it has nothing to do with E-Commerce, the Internet as we know it now or even the current economic system.
That is something which might manifest in the next 30 years and it would change the fundamentals of the whole society. The silly thing is that this development takes place with or without BTC and while it is still in it's infancies it is already apparent that it will be at least successful enough to provide you with a new livestyle out of the system.

So what is it? The applying of open source to everything it can be applied to.
for example opensourceecology.org opencores.org etc..

Down the road this can be extended to every product and means of production, consider semiconductor manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, genetics, network infrastructure and so on.

So long story short, the real enduse killerapp for bitcoin are resources, land and human labor.

I think any Bitcoin 'killer app' will have to provide access to goods or service that cannot be purchased with cash.

I've felt that online Poker (one of the big players with major marketing already in place) is the potential killer app. It may not be impossible to get USD to those sites today, but it's a barrier of entry for most.

The killer app would be something that made bitcoin invisible to the person using it - in the same way that the email protocol is invisible to someone reading their email.

Silk road.

had not with the SR, the bitcoin won't walk this far and will not have a solid bottom.

Silk road solved the pain of the ppl, not only make a better life of ppl. If you solve ppl's pain, they will hurry up to use it.

If you only make their life a little better, like save 1% transfer fee, ppl won't be interested easily.

The problem is the price drops act as a serious rake. I haven't played in months because it's not possible to keep up.

I think a killer app would be the one that would bring the missing liquidity to bitcoin, as well as interest rates.
It would be fantastic if services like MoneyBookers or Netteler used their already established security and user base to convert to and from bitcoins with ease.

One way I think the general public would start paying more attention and, I think, start using BTC more, is to promote the "No identity theft" angle. If they / we could buy BTC easily from a trusted source (with a CC) and then use them for online purchases that don't require handing over their CC info, it would be a major PR point. "Use BTC - No ID Theft Risk!" I know I am personally a little nervous every time I hand over all of my CC info. It would require a simple way to buy BTC without the  Dwolla - Exchange - etc. process required now.
