Need (improved) Alarm & Reminder APIs in WP8.1 RunTime for creating Universal apps
There's currently no way to create a universal app that has alarm/reminder functionality because these APIs are not included in the new WP RunTime.
Also, the existing Alarm & Reminder APIs for WP8 are very limited. When they eventually get added into the new RunTime, can you guys please consider the following possible improvements?
1. Able to select a song from Music Library as the alarm/reminder tone.
2. Allow custom snooze time.
3. Vibrate only support.
4. Allow customizing the Alarm/Reminder popup.
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 a thousand users complaining about these missing features)...
Please, I love WP and I'd love to continue on improving my app, but with all these roadblocks I simply can't do much about it.
