Incorporate the keyboard shortcuts I made in my phone. I have my email addresses stored as eml1 and eml2 etc because they are so long to type. I think this app would be significantly improved by adding that feature. Thanks1 vote
Honestly, I am stunned at the huge number of apps for other platforms than Windows phone. At a time when Microsoft should be AVALANCHING the store with Windows phone apps, I see mostly apps for your competitors here. IF you want to kill your phone platform, this is definitely a good way to do it. People in my UG and on my blog are saying, "heck, even Microsoft is writing apps mostly for IOS and Android. Why should I make an effort for Windows phone?"

Please refocus on apps for Windows Phone more then on Android.
Microsoft has only about a dozen of apps for Windows 10 Mobile and you guys still busy developing Android apps?!!
Please note the good apps like Tetra Lockscreen and many more from Windows Phone 8.1 is not available Windows Phone 10!!4 votes

I have 3 different Android (active) devices, ranging from an old Samsun tablet through a Sony Z series to a brand new top of the line model.
Yet somehow Play store says that the app isn't compatible with any of my devices. I guess the major problem is Google saying devices when they mean "countries" or "main languages" but for the time being: Would you mind mentioning language / market limitations in your descriptions? Or better yet give me a way to work around them if possible?3 votes
One of the reasons I don't bother to come here is I own w10 and w10m ....this being
A. lack of windows apps ( sad but true )
B. I have to troll through all the apps that I cannot use to maybe find one or two that work with w10.
maybe a android /ios/ windows filter would help ?11 votes
Thanks for the comments. Great pointer that we don’t yet offer an easy way to find the Windows and Windows Phone projects. We’re working on that. Stay tuned!
In the meanwhile, here is a manual list of some of the currently active Windows, Windows Phone, and Office add-in projects.

Store in Windows 10 missing the Application Version "Date". It also missing the "Recently Updated" List
Can't see at what date the app/game had an update.
Which was available in Windows 8.1 Phones.
Also note the Recently Updated app/game list is also missing.1 vote
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 I managed to install Maya on Ubuntu it was kind of pointless because there was no proper drivers for my graphics card for Ubuntu and card was not functioning as it should. I tried AMD website and downloaded drivers that actually made Ubuntu to crash. After I restarted computer the OS failed to boot. Well actually it booted normally, but the OS could not load because drivers screwed up everything. So I had to switch back to windows again and that is really sad. I love Linux so much, especially when I found out about Elementary OS Freya. It is just simply gorgeous. Actually Freya is Ubuntu 14.04 with custom Desktop Environment which is called Pantheon (Default Ubuntu Desktop Environment is Unity). So I thought that windows should have something like that also. I found a list of custom Desktop Environments for Windows and was really disappointed. All of them looked awful. There is KDE 5 Plasma desktop environment which looks good. But latest version for windows is KDE 4 Plasma which looks awful as well. Then I found LiteStep which looked bad, but then I found out that it has a lot of themes. And some of those themes are really impressive and takes huge control over the overall looks which is one step towards a right direction, but is still not enough.
So the way I see it. Windows is stable operating system with huge support of applications that many users need and is one of the main factors that makes people to use Windows. But a huge part of users would gladly switch to Linux if not the software they are tied to. So most of the users is using Windows because they have to, not because they really enjoying it. So why not making this experience a good experience for users. Of course, many could say that you can change the themes on Windows etc. but it is not the same and actually all the themes just looks awful and makes things even worse.
Microsoft Garage team have done some impressive projects proving that they can change people lives and make everything more fun. I remember when Tetra Lockscreen was released for Windows Phone. At first I thought that it was some kind of joke, because Windows Phone was no fun at all and the functionality that Tetra Lockscreen had sounded like Sci-Fi for Windows Phone. I was amazed by that work, so I started to look for developers of that lockscreen and it turned out that it was Microsoft Garage.
I believe, that Microsoft Garage could create an awesome custom Desktop Environment for Windows. Just look at the examples of Ubuntu 14.04 and Freya OS. Freya OS is actually Ubuntu 14.04, but it has different Desktop Environment, different file manager etc. Why can not Windows have something like that? The design of Pantheon (Freya OS DE) is really simple, minimalistic and gorgeous in that way. I would die to get that kind of desktop environment on Windows. And that is not just me. There is a lot of people that wants to have something different than all the same Windows DE. And that is one of the strong sides of Linux. Let say you have Ubuntu, you don't even have to reinstall your OS to get look of the Freya OS. You can just install Pantheon DE and there you go. All the different look.
You don't need to throw this idea away directly, just see what people think. Maybe creating a kickstarted project would be a great idea. Just make a concept of some nice DE for windows, that looks way different that Windows DE. Different style, different interaction, custom file explorer instead of Windows file explorer. Just something nice, clean and minimalistic and see what people thing. I am most certain that there would be a lot of people that could back this project up and it would be win win situation. Because you would get strong proof that people actually wants it and you would get money for this project. And looking at your previous projects this could be an easy task for you.
I hope you would at least consider this idea and I would love to see an custom DE for Windows from Microsoft Garage.

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?1 vote

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.1 vote
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!1 vote
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 improved1 vote

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.2 votes
