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. Add scroll and scrolltoend events to the scrollviewer

    If you want to load content after you reach the end of a list you have to write your own user control or create data bindings. This would be much easier if you could just recive the scrolledtoend event

    • Be more like Google Play and less like Apple App Store

      Be more like Google Play and less like Apple App Store.

      Like most everyone, we have an app on Google Play and another on
      Apple App store. We absolutely love dealing with Google Play - it's easy to submit an app, their developer UI is so easy and straight forward, there's never any submission nonsense and the app shows up in a matter of hours -- not days -- after we submit it.

      Apple on the other hand is generally nothing but headache. You have to play their game and deal with their dev portal, provision devices, wait around for…

        • Add button to only submit apps to Remittance Countries (so I do not need to worry about paying international taxes)

          It would be very convenient to just click a button and have your app placed in only the markets that we do not need to worry about taxes. The remittance countries as stated in the App Developer Agreement are the only countries where I sell my paid apps for this reason:

          h. Taxes on App Transactions. If you choose to have Microsoft make your app available for customers in the United States, any current member country of the European Union, Canada, Norway, Switzerland, Taiwan or Liechtenstein (Remittance Countries), Microsoft (or its billing service provider) will collect and remit sales, use,…

              • Faster OS updates (with API and API behavioral fixes)

                There have been numerous major bugs and lack of features that are taking just too long to update. If Windows Phone as any faith in its future it needs a lot more support from the development team. Bugs like the "other storage" have been there too long and only get fixed in annual updates. They should have been fixed days or weeks after discovery.

                The delay not only has a impact on phone users, but also on the developers building the apps for the phone when the bugs and missing features impact the user's app experience.

                • Access to Settings Applets

                  Provide an API(s) that allow apps to either control Settings (eg, being able to toggle WiFi when NFC tag is interacted).

                  Also, it would be nice if there was an API that allowed an app to be integrated into the Settings Applets, instead of a standard app.

                  • Provide live chat with tester

                    to clarify certification failures and speed up publishing process. Often, certification report contains little information about the failure. There are times when errors cannot be duplicate even after following the steps from the tester.

                    • Give developer the benefit of doubt during certification or have a guideline for tester

                      Tester may fail an app even if its not on the certification requirement/ guideline
                      it may also be often the case that the tester don't understand functionalities of Windows Phone.

                      I have an experience and the the message for certification failure was
                      "The developer should be able to reproduce the crash by factory resetting their test device to remove any installed language packs and then launching the app in simplified Chinese prior to installing the pack. If their test device is a Chinese market device and has the language pack installed by default, they will need to find and use…

                            This could be a font rendering issue. The Tamil fonts are rendered beautifully in iPhone. It is ugly in WP8

                              Hi Microsoft, My name is Mike Laversuch, I am the product architect for mobile apps development at CACI UK.

                              We develop enterprise applications for Heath, local authorities and government. Our largest user has a deployment of 18,000 devices throughout the UK.

                              I have been looking at options for locking down windows phone 8 for use in an enterprise environment and I have just seen "Kids Corner". This is uncannily close to an enterprise kiosk mode that we are crying out for on the windows phone platform.

                              One small adjustment.... allow phone calls to be made as an option and this…

                                I don't understand why this info not similar? If we have access to Contact List and that normal than access to owner phone nubber must be normal. Of cource if user give rights to app.
