  1. Auto-resizing of photos

    It would be simpler for me to not have to resize my photos before uploading them (especially if I'm pulling them off my phone or my skydrive folder), but instead have them auto-scaled on the server. Yes I'm aware there is a bandwidth and compute cost for this, but having this would remove a huge barrier in getting users to continue using this app and recommending it to friends and family.

    If a user starts to create an app and then stops because the photos on their phone aren't the correct size, then that's a huge opportunity lost. Even if…

      • Add a RateNow dialog box

        Even app needs this form of RateUs dialog box which can appear after some logic (as simple as 5 launches). This is very essential for any app to get good ratings. So please add a dialog box for this.

        • Add ability to tie notifications to data sources

          I would like to display notifications when new items are made available via an RSS feed (data source). This would allow my (blog reading) app to display notifications when new information is available.

          • remove limitation of text length & number of image per item

            The restriction of amount of text allowed and only 1 image per item greatly limited the possibility. There will be no way to make a long-article collection for example.

            • Improve HTML editor

              Currently the HTML editor is very simple and has just a few options! Please improve it, giving us more formatting options and better stability, so the inputted text works better, as currently i have to always keep searching for bad text added automatically.

              Thanks!

              • We need a Windows App Studio features roadmap

                Actually we don't know when an update will be released and we don't know what and how many features are coming to Windows App Studio. For example we know that the implementation of Xamarin is "Under review" but we have not any timeframe. People ask me when i'm going to update my apps created with app studio and I have no answer becouse i don't know WHEN Microsoft will update the tool. I think that this is very sad.

                      • Improvide User Experience for Certificate and App Install. Very confusing

                        Pretty darn cool app studio! In 10 minutes I created my very first Phone App! Just a little POC for WP8.

                        I'd say about 6 of 10 min was spent dealing with a very confusing process to install the side-load certificate and then installing the App. I'm still not sure how I got it to work properly, but none the less I did get to run my POC from my phone. (HTC 8X)

                        • Drag & Drop or numeric reordering of list items

                          I have been struggling to find a way to re-order the lists I've created in my DataSources. If there was a drag & drop function or a numerical order to the static items so we could rearrange them it would be very helpful, especially when trying to do a list in order of date.

                            Please allow more than 40 rows per datasource. My app needs this feature as I need 70-80 rows. I was not aware of this limit and I have been adding new content every week and people have already bought my app. I need the limit lifted soon.

                              Please allow more than 6 application main sections!! The current maximum is sometimes not enough for a proper app design / organization.

                                For example Name, email, about: i want to buy your house number 3.
                                And it would be send to our email as exel or anyway you can make it work

                                • Better naming regarding the pages reported to HockeyApp

                                  It is very hard to read HockeyApp statistics for non-english applications, because of pages naming:

                                  all pages is not readable in the hockeyapp site:
                                  "Section1ListPage", "Section6DetailPage", etc.
                                  Its will be very useful if I can change "internal" page name to readable English naming and HockeyApp reports can display "real" page names (for example cyrillic characters).

                                  (this is a fork from https://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/216486-windows-app-studio/suggestions/13351983-better-naming-regarding-the-pages-reported-to-appl but this feature request is for HockeyApp instead of HDInsight)

                                      • Rename and rearrange menu items

                                        When you add menu section to your app and add some section elements to the said menu then you are unable to rename or rearrange them.

                                        • More data types in data collections

                                          String, Int and Image are very limiting. I suggest adding Float (or some non-integer equivalent), and DateTime at least
