Allows software products from the same Publisher, accessing IsolatedStorage
Want to have a feature. Allows software products from the same Publisher, accessing IsolatedStorage. And can communicate with each other. Start each other (optional), which can be expanded larger developers ideas and more powerful than iOS and Android system.
This can save storage space, unified data storage location.
Or another form. Developers can provide their main program with subroutine. Subroutines can be run separately. Main program can manage/run program. In this way, developers can provide independent extension to process the data.
Wish to consider this kind of system design.
PS: above I use the online translation feature.
In Windows 10, Universal Windows Platform supports this scenario using ApplicationData GetPublisherCacheFolder property.
For additional information please read https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/windows.storage.applicationdata.getpublishercachefolder.aspx or watch Build 2015 presentation https://channel9.msdn.com/events/Build/2015/2-695

We announced this exact feature with Windows 10 at Build this year. See this Build talk https://channel9.msdn.com/events/Build/2015/2-695 about 49 minutes in. Apps from the same publisher can now use "Shared Publisher Application Data" to share a location on disk.
As far as apps communicating with each other is concerned see my talk here: https://channel9.msdn.com/events/Build/2015/3-765. We have LOTS of new app to app communication features that came in with Windows 10. Apps can launch each other, send data with these launches or even talk to each other without launching.
Server side is an idea - but on mobile devices you should always think about disconnected scenarios.

There are so many ideas in this forum that having just 10 votes isn't enough... I'd support this feature.
