Allow game/application data to survive install/re-install
Currently all data is lost when uninstalling but it would be nice if Zune kept it and put it back when re-installing. That way if my phone gets too full, I can remove a large app e.g. a roleplay game with lots of hours of playtime and then when I have space, reload it and resume where I left off. This annoys the heck out of me on the iPhone so I would love it if we could do better!
Thank you for the suggestion. We hope that recent updates to the Windows 8 and 8.1 have improved your experience.
However, this suggestion has not generated enough interest and after being posted here for over a year has not collected more than 5 votes. Declining this idea to give you back your developer / application platform votes.
