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?

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Produce errors if invalid certificate is uploaded.

    Right now you can upload an unsupported certificate or even self-signed cert and apphub will not provide any feedback.

  2. Apphub: Display useful information about a certificate

    It displays the certificate signer information, but you could easily upload two certificates with different CNs (service names) issued by a single CA and you would have no way of telling them apart. Minimally it should show the CN from the subject which matches the service name you provide in client code, along with the CN of the signer. Ideally it would allow you to download the certificate for verification or at least provide a md5 hash of the uploaded certificate.

  5. App Hub登録審査に日本人、もしくは日本文化に精通している人を少なくとも一人は配置してほしい

    ここのところアプリ登録が増えているせいか、無碍な理由でApp Hub審査落ちして一週間無駄にした、というような話をよく耳にするようになってきました。

    例:
    アルファベット混じりのアプリが複数言語混在問題で審査に落ちる
    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/ja-JP/wpmarketplaceja/thread/ccc0be72-9eb9-4853-9aeb-e4bbdaf3aa87

    日本でWPが出荷される前ならまだしも、もし本気で日本語Marketplaceを運営する気があるのならば、もしWindows Phoneを日本のマジョリティに普及させる気があるのならば、絶対に必要な条件だと思います。

    別件ですがW-8BENの登録手続きに関しても同様の問題があると思います。

  6. Option to submit your app only to markets where taxes are accounted for.

    Currently, you can submit an app to all countries, or specific countries. I would like a button I can click that will only select the countries for which Microsoft already accounts for any taxes.

  9. Add functionality to snooze

    when an alarm pops up an option to edit the reminder should be included instead of having to constantly hit snooze or exit the reminder and go into the object itself

  10. video camera control

    Allow for video camera control, start and stop recording from the touch screen instead of just the camera button. I have a gel impact case and it makes it difficult to start and stop video recording.

  13. Socket broadcast and bind

    The ability to broadcast and bind sockets to a port would be handy for making local client <=> server applications where you don't need to specify the server IP.

  14. ShareStatusTaskで入力文字が消える

    以下の手順でShareStatusTaskに入力した文字が消えてしまいます。

    1. 以下のコード例でShareStatusTaskを起動する
       var task = new ShareStatusTask();
       task.Status = "#feedback ";
       task.Show();

    2. いくらかの文字を末尾に追加で手入力する
    3. Backボタンを長押ししてFastApplicationSwitchingを起動
    4. 特にアプリを切り替えずに、再度利用していたアプリケーション戻る

    Statusプロパティに初期値として文字を設定しない場合は問題ありません。ユーザーが入力した状態を保持できないのは困ったことなので、消えないようにしてください。

  15. Allow the emulator to simulate phone calls and messages.

    There are several certification requirements from Microsoft that are impossible to test without a physical Windows Phone device. The requirements that involve phone calls, text messages, and zune hub music are all impossible to test from within the emulator.

    It'd be very convenient for developers without actual devices to test their apps for the certification requirements if everything could actually be tested with the emulator.

  16. マーケットプレースの購入ボタンをタップ後「本当にアプリを購入しますか?」等の確認が必要

    アプリを購入されたユーザ様より、「購入する気はなかったが、ミスで購入ボタンに触れたら購入に至った。確認なしに購入させるのは、アプリ製作者として非道徳的」とのお叱りを受けました。

    私自身も、開発中に間違って購入ボタンをタップしたら、すぐに購入になってしまった記憶がございます。(幸い、使えるアプリだったので良かったですが)

    詳細やレビューを縦スクロールしている過程で、購入ボタンにミスタッチする可能性は非常に高いですから、なんらかの対策を施していただけますよう、お願い申し上げます。

  19. Support custom shaders (HLSL)

    Allow applications to define custom shaders in HLSL. This will allow sophisticated game graphics and real-time image processing. Also allow access to MP4 encoder library (hardware accelerated) so apps can generate their own videos. This should also allow apps to read existing videos, modify frames and write them back.
