Improve Alarm and Reminder APIs
First, Alarm and Reminder classes are not even included in the Windows Phone RunTime.
So, please, include them in the next sdk.
Second, those two classes are very very limited. There's no way to change the snooze duration, no way to use music from Music Library for the tones and you cannot customize the 'dismiss' popup window too.
I raised a request on the uservoice site over a year and a half ago, it's got 15k user votes but was rejected recently, because the admin thought it's a dev question (Well, there are 1000 USERS complaining about these missing features)...
And there's worse... In Windows Phone 8.1, if you enable an alarm in any third party alarm app, you can't use Cortana to set up an alarm anymore...
Please, I love WP and I'd love to continue on improving my app, but with all these I simply can't do much about it.
Hello fellow Windows Platform Developers, please refer to this similar thread that has more votes for requesting an improved Alarm/Reminder APIs:
Let's put our all votes on that thread (instead of multiple threads) so that we get more votes and it can be officially acknowledged by the WPDev team. Thanks!

No Windows Phone RunTime to support these classes means no Universal Alarm or Reminder apps...
