  1. Create custom Desktop Environment for Windows

    Microsoft is trying and trying to improve their desktop environment. Luna, then Aero, then Metro. Of course, those are kind of different desktop environments, but essentially they are all the same. And most of the users are tired of that. Recently I switched to Linux (Ubuntu) because I was so sick of all the same style all the time. Well, the problem was that I am an 3D artist and because of that I am software dependent. To get programs working on Linux is a huge pain because Linux has poor support regarding all the most used programs. Even though…

  2. a photo-video merging app

    everytime there is an event happening like a concert, my facebook is flooded with these photos and videos. i just think it would be a great idea to do like a photosynth app to merge all of these from different angles into a video... while also stitching out their sounds. like right now, most in singapore are watching the madonna concert. and later my facebook will be filled with videos and photos. so why not merge all of these into a single thing?

  3. Support for an app called Blink

    It would be nice to have ability to export blinks as GIFs and have a faster uploading speed to OneDrive (Blink for Windows 10 Mobile)

  4. Wacom EMR vs. AES

    I installed Plumbago on my Asus Vivo Tab Note that uses Wacom EMR technology. I was so happy with the result that I decided to also install it on my Toshiba Encore Write 2 that uses Wacom AES technology. On this device though inking is nothing short of horrible. Lagging, strokes not recognized, after "recognition" twisted into defferent shapes and so on. Don't wish to sound harsh but it was completely useless. Sad for such a great idea.

  5. Developer Assistant Forum

    Hey MS Garage,

    I'm looking for someone to contact from Garage who works on the Developer Assistant project. I couldn't find a forum for this product, so I was wondering if there was someone I could reach out to directly or if there's another feedback page for it. Thanks!

  6. add real or near real time collaboration to Plumbago

    If several creatives in the same room or same LAN could see each others sketches as they are being sketched, it would be better than a white board experience. The ideas can be saved cataloged and retrieved easier than ideas sketched on a white board. Your view of the sketch is also not blocked by the artist, so comprehension of the sketched idea is improved

  9. SEND

    When is "SEND" going to be ready for windows? If promoted properly in Outlook (web, PC and Mobile) it could be the killer app to bring email in the 21st century

  10. Universal Garage - a time to show devs

    It is widely stated by VS and zamarin that apps can be developed across all three major platforms.

  12. I think it is incredible that microsoft does not tell its employees, if you make an app for iOS and Android make it also for Windows 10 Mobi

    I think it is incredible that microsoft does not tell its employees, if you make an app for iOS and Android make it also for Windows 10 Mobile. They want to grow in sales of mobile, frightened by the fall in sales of mobile, here is why poe which the sales fall, are not committed to its own operating system. There must be a radical change in microsoft if you want to way the boat, otherwise it is sinking and you have not noticed. You forgive my english.

  18. Make SMS app with dual sim support.

    I kept on scrolling and scrolling the Playstore searching if you guys made a native SMS app developed by the Microsoft Garage. I have been using your apps and it was really great and you don't charge for ads (so please don't). It would really be great if you would make your own SMS app

  19. Next Lock Screen - Calendar Interaction

    So Next Lock Screen for Android will show your next upcoming Calendar events, but is it possible to increase the window of time for that next upcoming event? Currently it appears to be less than 12 hours, it would be nice if you could set it to see events for the next day and whatnot.

  20. Next lock screen

    Hi, I really like the design and interface of the next lockscreen. It's very simple, but elegant and sophisticated to look at especially when you partner it with your custom wallpapers which are superb. I hope that you continue your fluid releases and be consistent with the design and stability. To be honest, I really wanted to keep the app on my phone, but I'm really scared since my phone is new and I didn't want to many 3rd party apps like the lock screen on it since I've had past issues with third party apps. I think that it…
