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 (developer portal, back-end services, reporting/analytics and process)
  • Microsoft Store

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:

  • Windows:
  • Documentation on docs.microsoft.com
    • Sign in to give documentation feedback via Github
  • Visual Studio / .NET

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?

    • Two development modes

      Allow two level off access to low level API. Current mode is focused on Marketplace apps. A development mode with access granted to all API is focused for Business APPs.

      • NFC / FeliCa 対応

        説明不要と思いますが、ユーザーの実利やライバルモバイルOSとの競争を考えれば不可欠と思います。

        また、端末メーカーの独自実装ではなく、公式APIとしてアプリ開発者が柔軟に使用できる環境により、今ある利用方法を超えた新しい応用例を生み出してくれると思います。

        • Network activity profiler functionality

          In addition to the existing profiler tool, a network activity profiler should be given so that we can analyse network activities that are happening, potentially helping in troubleshooting cases wheter network activites are becoming bottleneck for app responsiveness. or to identify amount of network transfer.

                • Custom CaptureSource to be able to use with FileSink. We need the ability to produce encoded audio/video stream/file (like a movie maker).

                  To be able to make a movie (and share it with the rest of the World via youtube) we need an ability to generate MPEG4/WMV stream/file by utilizing hardware codecs (through FileSink). Also some way to change (enhance) audio/video captured from mic/camera before it will be encoded and saved into file.

                  • Ability To Add Multiple Pictures In One MMS mesdage

                    Sort of annoying to have to press attach three times to send three different pics. Checkboxes maybe?

                    • Make metro style apps run on windows phone

                      Make it so that a meteo style app would only need to adapt its UI to run on Windows phone. It would also be nice to have to deploy only one package to the marketplace but only the needed bits would be tranfered.

                        • IE should start displaying unicode characters.

                          Since windows phones are selling hot in countries like India, browser should start displaying Indian language characters.

                          • Choser for dialer, and choser for call history

                            Let us open up the phone application (here the the user can see callhistory++).

                            Also let us open the call-history page

                            Both are usefull for smart-dialing apps.

                            An app can at least have a button directly to call history so user can see call history (since a direct API for call-history is not given due to security reasons).

                            And a smart dialer can then be a full alternative to the built-in phone app, since the app also can have a quick-button for "goto the regular phone app" whenever the user wants to do that.

                            • Microphone sampling frequency should be controlled. Now it is fixed.

                              Microphone sampling frequency is fixed. So Microphone.SampleRate property just returns this fixed value. For example the HTC Mozart microphone sample frequency is fixed as 16000 Hz. It isn't useful for several intersting application.

                              • Appointment chooser

                                As an alternative to giving write-access to calendar (which can be hard to get a go on for security reasons), let us at least open an appointment directly in the calendar app.

                                Would make it possible to make calendar viewers that can behave as a real calendar alternative. Especially if we also can have a "delete appointment"-chooser (user will need to confirm deletion).

                                        Many mobile applications are written in java. It would be nice if wp7
                                        supports this.
