In Silverlight it was once possible to register an app as an option for the edit picker in the photo hub (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/jj662932(v=vs.105).aspx). This is not possbile for UAP apps.
Another, even better option instead of adding the edit extensibility would be adding an "open with..."-option in the built-in photos app. This option is already present in the desktop variant of the app, but missing in the mobile app.9 votes

Build on WCF to allow on-phone app-to-app communication. This is something that Apple just announced and Google is expected to soon. Get this working ASAP so Windows Phone doesn't get left behind.
Allow JSON and/or XML to pass data between apps.
Use a URI to query apps, ie:
Most importantly! Make apps request permission the first time they talk to a new app, then let it happen in the background. I shouldn't have to launch Facebook just to get to the data.48 votes
