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

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:

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?

    • 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).

                  • .jar files supports.

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

                      • There is a bug in multicast .beginJoinGroup that blocks calling thread.

                        There is a bug in multicast .beginJoinGroup. After tombstoning if this method is called in onActivated or any "load" then thread is blocked. Solution is to call this method in an override of onNavigated method. Plz fix this.

                        • Allow CookieContainer to be Serialized/Deserialized

                          Currently, serialization and deserialization of the CookieContainer doesn't work. The documentation says to use the CookieContainer if one needs to save off HttpOnly cookies. It seems that saving the CookieContainer isn't possible.

                          "If the server sends HTTPOnly cookies, you should create a System.Net.CookieContainer on the request to hold the cookies, although you will not see or be able to access the cookies that are stored in the container."

                            • 税金関係の手続きについて、日本語のサポートを提供してほしい。

                              有料アプリを公開する際に必要になる ITIN あるいは EIN について、取得が不要になるのがベストですが、取得のためのサポートを日本語で提供してほしいと思います。
                              現状、W-7 とか SS-4 とかの書類を書いて提出しなければなりませんが、Instructions ももちろん英語なので、ちゃんと書けているか自信がありません。
                              申請には、お金も時間もかかります。NG だとがっくり来ます。
                              MS さんの方でテンプレートを用意して頂くとか、書いたものを添削して頂くとかして、一発で取得できるようにして頂きたいと思います。

                              よろしくお願いいたします。

                              ところで、Web で検索すると、EIN の取得方法は結構見つかりますが、ITIN はほとんど見つかりません。
                              取得代行をやっている業者も、EIN はありますが、ITIN はありません。
                              ただ、どちらを取るべきかと言えば、本来は ITIN だと思うのですが…。
                              ITIN の場合、パスポートの公証をしてもらわないといけないので、それだけで結構な費用が掛かり、何度も申請する気にはなれません。

                              • Smart Dialing from Phone App

                                Could a Smart dial please be finally applied to the phone app? It's quite frustrating to have to go into people, click of search and have to find contact, then dial. Easy when you dont have lots of contacts, but when you are managing Thousands of contacts, it makes life easy. Please implement. Thanks.

                                      • AddressChooserTask get finer detail (i.e. postcode)

                                        The event arguments from the AddressChooserTask only returns the contact address as a string. So if we need a specific part of the address we'd have to do some fairly tricky parsing. It would be nice if we had finer access so we could specifically get, say, the postcode.

                                        When entering address details for a contact the address details are split into different fields anyway so one would expect to be able to access them individually from the result an AddressChooserTask as well.
