Universal Windows Platform

Welcome to the Universal Windows Platform Developer Feedback site. This site provides the Windows developer community with a channel for feedback on the following topics:

  • Windows developer platform (APIs, runtimes, and controls)
  • Dev Center (dashboard, reporting/analytics, submission process, etc.)
  • Microsoft Store

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

What this forum is not intended to cover or capture:

  • Windows consumer suggestions: Use the Windows Feedback Hub app built directly into Windows 10
  • Documentation on docs.microsoft.com: Sign in at the bottom of the page to give documentation feedback via Github
  • Visual Studio / .NET: Use the Visual Studio UserVoice site

If you’re new to UserVoice, two things to keep in mind are (a) List items (and item rankings) represent community interest in features, and not the 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 (or if too many different ideas are included in one suggestion).

How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

  1. Isn't there any support about encryption of local database?

    Hi,
    I'm developing a Windows Universal App, and I'm sicked and tired of finding a way to implement encrypted local DB support.
    (I already have a database file encrypted by SQL Cipher and I just have to read the records)
    I know SQLite support Universal App Development through Nuget in VS2015
    But SQLCipher is not - it supports only commercial edition ($899) and I can't afford the expense.
    So I tried to find other ways such as Excel, Access, or SQL Server Compact Edition.

    Surprisingly, NO ONE OF THEM supports Universal App implementation.

    That's ridiculous and I'm sick and tired…

      • Overwrite Existing File with FileSavePicker on UWP Mobile

        It appears there is a "Enter File Name" even when selecting an existing file using FileSavePicker on UWP mobile. It seems to work as expected on desktop.

        You can see my original question on MSDN forum below.
