  1. Push notifications in App Studio

    Allow the possibility to add push notifications (toast and tile) in apps created with AppStudio, eg. when there's a new article in RSS reader, or a new video in youtube, and so on...It would be so cool!

    • Build once deploy anywhere (Windows Phone, Windows 8, iOS & Android)

      Ability to deploy the app built in App studio to iOS and Android platforms. This will save a lot of development effort in duplicating the functionality for other platforms.

        • Windows Store App, Windows Phone App, and Xbox App Studio

          Step 1: Create an app studio for each platform
          Step 2: Make as many similar APIs and services available for each device through the Apps Studios
          Step 3: Create templates for each of them
          That way when you finished one app, you can just load up the App Studio file in another App Studio, and it'll translate the layouts.
          If they choose not to use a pre-built template, well sucks to be them...

            it's planned  ·  Raúl AlarcónRaúl Alarcón responded

            In Windows App Studio, Windows 10 generated apps are Universal, so them will run in any windows 10 device, from a Raspberry Pi to a Microsoft Surface Hub . Regarding Xbox, it is planned to optimize the layouts and experience to have a smooth experience in this device.

          • Offline video embedding

            Have the ability for us to embed offline videos into apps, just like we can embed photos.

            • Add ability to have user inputs

              We really need the ability to create apps that respond to user inputs! Right now the app Studio is good, fun, allows making beautiful read only apps. We can only make so many read only apps. Add new features to allow us to have the users put in inputs like text, uploading pictures, yes or no buttons, number menus to select values, to do list style inputs, etc and the App Studio will become great!! I and many others have so many ideas for more apps, but are limited to time to write them in Visual Studio, this App Studio…

                • Implement AppStudio code using Xamarin to target IOS and Android

                  Wouldn't it be great to get ready IOS and Android apps, too? Should be a great cross-platform solution that promotes the MS toolset.

                    • iframe support

                      Add support for iframe (external website inlay) in the HTML editor.

                      or some other way the. Display web pages inside the app instead of just links that open the browser.

                            A lot of the apps that I see myself doing with this would require to do a checklist of items.

                              A lot of text entries get cut off because the fonts are too large. In the RSS feeds template, the title of each feed will only have the first 4-5 words displayed.

                                  • Provide "Sensor" Data Sources

                                    It would be great to have a data source option to access any and all of the phone's sensors. I would like to be able to create a live graph of data provided by the accelerometer, camera, microphone, and GPS. Along with any other sensors that may be added in the future.

                                    • Embed YouTube video links to make my own playlist

                                      I'm trying to make an app that distributes entertainment content that I create. I'd like to be able to put the link for the video into a playlist builder for the app and build out the content that I think would be good for mobile playback. I don't want my whole channel on there.

                                      • Camera access in Windows Phone App Studio

                                        The superior cameras are one of the key differentiators of Windows Phones, so I would love to be able to use it in my prototype apps.

                                        In the first instance just saving it to a gallery would be enough to start with, but eventually posting images and other content to facebook, flikr or (pretty please...) an url/api that we specify would really open up our options. It would stop all the apps looking the same as well by allowing a huge community of service providers to quickly make windows front ends for the unique functionality they offer.
