Universal Windows Platform

Welcome to the Windows Platform Developer (WPDev) Feedback site. This feedback forum provides the WPDev community with a channel for feedback on the following topics:

  • Windows developer platform (APIs, runtimes, and controls)
  • Dev Center Store (developer portal, back-end services, reporting/analytics and process)
  • Windows Stores (Windows and Windows Phone)

Your suggestions will be reviewed by the Windows platform developer team, providing feedback to help with planning ideas and to better understand how developers are using the development platform.

What this forum is not intended to cover or capture:

If you’re new to this whole UserVoice thing, we’d like to note two important things about this site: (a) List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and does not represent an actual priority list for the product team; and (b) Suggestions made using this forum will be moderated if they do not actually represent a feature request.

How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

  1. Remove Search Restrictions

    Remove the 50 apps limit from the phone and 100 app limit from the marketplace web site when users search for an app with a search term. If an app can not be found with its ideal keyword (becuase over a hundred apps already have used that search term) then new apps cannot be found with their ideal search terms. The concept of paging using skip and take very easily resolves this issue. It's quite dissapointing that a Bible app cannot be found with the search term bible.

    • Add support to disable the "bounce" in the WebBrowser control

      Currently, there doesn't seem to be any possibility to disable the "bounce" effect when scrolling inside the WebBrowser control which makes any apps based in HTML5 look and feel cheap. This happens when you try to scroll beyond the bounds of the control and there is the elastic effect which allows you to move the page beyond the border of the control. Would it be possible to disable this?

            • Audio aggregation and routing

              Provide option to combine multiple audio devices/interfaces into a separate device (aggregate device). Routing of input/output from one audio device to another.

              Also a supplementary feature would be to provide user selectable option to assign an audio device to an application (can be overridden by application if it select a particular audio device)

                • Alarm volume settings

                  Hello,
                  it would be great if user and dev could modify alarm volume. I know you have tweaked alarm volume in Insider builds, but you simply cannot cover all user need if you don't provide them the slider. Many users still complains about given volume, even fade in doesn't save the situation.

                  The best it would be if also dev could set volume granularly on each Toast notification. User might want lower volume for morning alarms and louder volume for alarm used during busy day.

                  That would make all the users happy :)

                  Thanks!

                    • [Bug] - ListBox.ScrollIntoView doesn't work properly

                      If a ListBox has elements with different sizes and you call ScrollIntoView to the last Item, the ScrollViewer doesn't scroll to correct position.

                      You can reproduce it adding rectangles with 100px, 200px and 300px of height and calling ScrollIntoView to the last item.

                      • Dynamically Load Assembly

                        Add the Assembly.Load method which accepts byte[] as a parameter in order to load an assembly in to the app domain. All the other platforms support this: .Net, Silverlight, Android (Xamarin), and even iOS (Xamarin)!

                        Why is the UWP team stubbornly resisting this? Without this UWP is more or less a toy because any customization requires that the app be deployed completely separately. Other platforms allow for customization to be downloaded and dynamically loaded in to the app domain.

                            • Add $0.49 IAP price point

                              I think that having and IAP price point of $0.49 could be wildly attractive to end users and get more purchases for developers. Having $0.99 as the bottom for things like ad removal, when many *full apps* cost $0.99 can sometimes be a tough sell.

                                    API to emulate Radio Access Cards using NFC. That way WP can be used as a universal access card. A lot of corporate users who have to carry their access card with them will appreciate it. It will eliminate the situation when a person forgets his access card and has to go to the security office to get a temporary one.
                                    One possible application of such API is ability to configure the access card ID from Active Directory. That way IT administrators will be able to provision new access codes using familiar infrastructure.
                                    It will also make a corporation more…

                                    • Let an app know if it's pinned

                                      At the moment there's no way for an app to know if its primary live tile is visible or not. As half the point of my app is the information on the live tile, I'd like to have a polite reminder show every so often if they haven't pinned it, but I simply don't know whether they have or not.
