        • Menus inside of menus

          It would be nice if you could add a menu inside another menu and add pictures to the menus.

              • Auto Sliding Carousel

                I would love to see the option to set the Big Carousel available in App Studio, as an auto sliding Carousel. It would look beautiful if the carousel began sliding its images/articles upon opening of app, just like the Windows Store shows screenshots of an app currently.

                • Add Support for Windows 10 Ads

                  I'd like one of the two. I'd either like to be able to implement ads in App Studio for a Windows 10 app, or I'd like to know why we can't. Otherwise, I'm thinking I might just be better off sticking with my 8.1 app.

                  Here's the thing. I downloaded the Advertising SDK. I edited the source code in VS. Added my AdMediatorControl, configured everything. I even figured out how to do the responsive design for the AdMediatorControl. Now, my app just crashes when I try to open it.

                  After trying just about everything to get my app to work,…

                      • AppStudio - add icons/images to Menu

                        When creating menus, provide the option of using a symbol/image/icon to place beside the menu. Nested menus under the Hamburger are text only. This would allow for an additional visual element within the splitview (similar to first-party MS apps such as Groove/Movies & TV/etc. I have yet to find a way to add symbols manually to Menus created from AppStudio and ported to Visual Studio 2015

                        • Theme

                          Give users the ability to change theme (light/dark) within app via Settings page (and make it roam capable across devices). Currently the theme is coded during app build and is not customizable by the user once deployed to device.

                          • Dynamic Splashscreen

                            For a app for a magazine I'd like to use the cover of the latest issue as a splash screen. currently this is not possible. Similar functionality is in the Flip Tiles section. You might point to a image datasource or a custom online datasource with only one image column.

                            • RSS Feed on Tiles

                              One of the great features about the Live Tiles for websites is that I can generate RSS feed headlines to appear on them... I use this for my website www.djsmobiles.com when it is pinned on the start screen

                              On App Studio you allow to customize the tiles, but it would be great if the RSS feed could be linked to appear on the Live Tile instead of having static tiles

                              • Icon Library

                                The template apps have icons included (such as basketballs and baseballs in one of the "sports" apps.

                                It would be great if we had access to a library of royalty free metro icons that could be used when building out an app. Even better, it would be great to have an automatic search function for creative-commons licensed pictures that could be used in the app (like Office 2013 does). This would make it faster to design a nice looking look-and-feel so we can spend more time working on adding content to the app.

                                  • More options in the extra-section (e.g. Add to addressbook)

                                    Option to create more buttons in the extra-bar.
                                    For example the option to add a contact to the addressbook or give feedback about the application or links to other sections/pages within the app.
