  1. Make Arrow launcher available without Google Play Services/Store.

    Does Arrow depend on the Google Play Services? If not, it would be nice to be able to download an apk for those of us who are getting by without the Google services.

    Thanks.

      • Phone distraction allert while driving

        There is no need to emphasize how dangerous it is to be distracted by cell phone while driving. Statistics show almost 30% of fatal crashes are due to these kind of distractions. There are some applications which are designed or are in design process of limiting phone usage while driving. However I think non of them are good enough or effective enough. My idea is to develop an application to issue a Warning to the "driver" that the driving behavior is dangerous and this instance is being saved in a "Data Base" in "Cloud". The heart of this application is…

        • International availability

          It's honestly a bit frustrating that so many cool apps are being released by this studio, but I can't use a single one due to not residing in the USA.

          Surely it's not difficult to release these apps to other English-speaking markets? I thought Microsoft were starting to turn this US-centric attitude around.

                • Hyper Local Air quality monitoring

Currently air quality is given by a large region, pollen is a good example. Its not very localized. We are able to provide local data.

                  It can be a good addition to you urban air project in China.

                  • For the New App INVITE...

                    - Log-In is taking too long
                    - Please add option where Time is NOT suggested, but mandatory... very useful if creating a Corporate Event (e.a.: training, holiday party...)
                    - Define location NAME & ADDRESS to be linked to Maps
                    - Add a line for DIAL-IN, so when pressed can be connected to call
                    - Add a line for RSVP due date (closing acceptance to event)

                    • App to help fixing domestic things.

                      There should be an app which helps people to fix something or do domestic tasks. It should also allow people to share there experience of doing something.

                        • Create/share social media accounts for Microsoft Garage projects

                          I couldn't see any way of following individual projects or Microsoft Garage on social networks.

                          It would be good to be able to see progress and updates, re-share, tag/mention, etc. Twitter would be a great start, especially considering the already strong Microsoft presence there and the opportunities that opens up for raising the profile of Microsoft Garage and its projects.

                            • Add social media share links to product overlays

                              I would like to share the product 'pages' to my social networks and it would be great to be able to do so directly from the Microsoft Garage Workbench to drive traffic back to the site.

                              Sure, I could just copy the URL or use one of my browser extensions but why not make it really simple for me by providing a temptingly simple one-click way of doing it from right there in the product overlay?

                              • cant see contact names in search results

                                search option is good. it is listing all texts with matching criteria.
                                but contact names are not showing in search results.. a bug probably.
                                i cant find a contact in sms app due to this reason.
                                its a serious limitation.
                                i rely on sms for business. cant work with this app
