  1. A template that accepts and stores user input

    I've got a few app ideas that I want to develop. I've built the interface for two of them and have most of the code in place but I don't know how to accept and store user input. The goal would be to let somone enter data in a textbox, save that to a table locally, then have it optionally sync to SkyDrive.

      • User Input!

        I have a pretty awesome app but I can't launch it because Users can't type anything! :( This whole App Studio is a Read-Only creation now, meaning that no one can input data to it, unless you're inputting while creating the app. Kinda ridiculous. PLEASE UPDATE THIS SO I CAN MAKE MORE.

          • You need to create step by step hand holding guides for all the various App templates

            The current templates are insufficient. Just to use them you would have to have a computer science degree. Setting up data sources, schemas, etc.. is not what the average person will be able to do. If the App Studio is to truly reach its potential, the entire processes has to be revised.

            I suggest taking a look at how games build their UI, with interactive elements, context sensitive help, smart auto-completion, etc..

            See how other UI builders work and take the best ideas from them. WYSIWYG editors, with drag and drop functionality.

            Well Good Luck!

                      Es necesario que desde ya se pueda editar las apps con el diseño de Windows 10,también sería bueno que ya estuvieran los paquetes de publicación en las tiendas.

                                • Application implies data entry as well as browing

                                  I was disappointed to see that the app generated by this tool did not include any capability to add new content (for example upload pictures in the Family template or trip diary entries in the My Trips template). For me, missing the editing capability on this content means that I do not have an "Application" I have a fancy webpage wizard.

                                      • Fully customizable and self-definable Templates including user input possibilities

                                        Since I wrote blog posts and present App Studio to various audiences, I noticed always the question of how templates can be customized and how user input elements can be added to apps. My answer was always to download the source code and extend the app via Visual Studio. Download code and extend it is a very cool offer from App Studio, but some user wants to do it in App studio itself. So it would be very helpful, if there are some templates that include input controls.

                                        I would like to take an additional step: App Studio should provide…

                                          Assuming your app does well, adding user registration / my account features will help dev's understand more about users. No need to build this from scratch as there are several vendors that have this out of the box. It just needs adding to templates in a friendly way. Registration data could be held with the login provider, or optionally in your App Studio dashboard, or somewhere else...
