  1. Next lock screen - Pin Lock

    While using the pin lock for the lock screen the keyboard numbers should come in different positions every time - so your fingerprints don’t give away which keys you've pressed.

  3. (Q for Engineers) How does the iOS keyboard toggle autocorrect settings?

    Hey Word Flow iOS engineers,

    Terrific work. I was curious how the keyboard, with Full Access "off" is able to toggle AutoCorrect settings from the main app?
    iOS doesn't allow the keyboard to communicate with the host app when Full Access is turned off. So how is this setting change accomplished?

    Cheers,
    Johnny

  4. Shortcuts

    For word flow keyboard, it would be nice to be able to have a shortcut from the 123 button where you can press and drag to a number or symbol similar to other swipe keyboards. Everything else is really good so far.

  5. Live Tile Launcher App for Windows 10

    I posted this to the Windows Feedback tool, but I felt like it would be a good project for the Microsoft Garage. I stated so in my feedback submission, which I am pasting here verbatim.

    Standalone App Launcher with Live Tiles. Great project for Microsoft Garage! A standalone launcher app that you can open and leave visible on your screen, in which you can pin Live Tiles of installed apps. Clicking the pinned app's live tile will launch the app. Example of usage: On a multiple-monitor system, I snap the Launcher App to the right side of my right-most monitor…

  7. Invest more on truly exceptional ideas

    I have tried your Mimicker Alarm, and other projects as well. One thing I can notice about them is the lack of killer features. Those that dare to solve our everyday issues, especially those that we accept to live with, in an innovative way.

    For example, my app, Step Out Alarm Clock, is so easily adopted because it doesn't need people to do silly things to wake up. After all, they have to get out of their beds and just bring the phone with them, the alarm with dismiss automatically

    Furthermore, Self-Control To Focus, wants to help millions of people…

  8. Why can't you use Windows Mobile iOS Bridge

    I love the ideas you come up with, but you do WORK FOR MICROSOFT! and there is a platform building that software - even using the iOS Bridge. Please stop being so inconsiderate of your loyal Windows Mobile users - The bridge is out there, please use it!

  10. incorporate the keyboard shortcuts I already have in my phone.

    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. Thanks

  11. Apps for Windows phone

    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?"

  12. refocus

    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!!

  14. Explain why apps are not compatible with any of my devices

    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?

  15. List products/apps by platform

    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 ?

    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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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?

  20. 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.
