            • Support custom themes with Skinery Tiles Pro

              Many users have asked for more customization for the look and feel of the start screen. Skinery Tiles Pro now supports custom themes for live tile apps with notifications and users have asked for stock apps such as Phone, People, Office, Settings, Messaging, Xbox, Calendar, Mail and Store to be included in Skinery.

              Skinery knows it is ridiculous and far-fetching to ask Microsoft to work with an indie developer. So even if Microsoft is not interested to link up to Skinery directly, can Microsoft allow stock apps to be launched using uri scheme?

              Skinery's dream is to help Windows Phone…

              • Allow whatsapp (and other apps) to access video gallery

                Allow whatsapp (and other apps) to access video gallery.
                Now whatsapp can't send videofiles that are stored in phones gallery and it's because of wp limitations. This is critical and it should be fixed as soon as possible!

                • We do NOT want Android apps on WP

                  Really a horrible idea just to think about putting Android apps on the UI of Windows Phone. The UI is unique, and the apps should be as well.
                  The person(s) at MS coming up with this idea should be ashamed of themselves!!

                  • Sirius XM Satellite radio App

                    Sirius XM Satellite Radio needs an official App for Windows Phone! The "unofficial" SiriusXM Buddy App stopped working in Sept 2012, and who knows if it will ever work again (Sirius changed their API).

                    Now I switch SIM cards back into my old iPhone constantly just so I can listen to Sirius/XM on my phone.

                    They have an app for iOS, android and even BlackBerry. I've reached out to them to ask; I'm not sure they are listening. Maybe you guys can help make it happen.

                          • Install XAP-Files without SD-Card

                            The new function for WP8 to install Apps using an SD-Card and the XAP-File that can be downloaded from the Online Store (PC) is NOT working for some WP8 devices! For example the Lumia 920 DOES NOT have a SD-Card Slot. Installing via SkyDrive and Email didn't work either. Please add a function to install these Apps via the internal memory for these devices.

                              • Much Better Windows Application for WP Management

                                No matter how much I adore WP and my Lumia 920, this thing is most disturbing and definitely MS needs to improve alot.

                                and I must say even Zune app for WP7 is not the right one too.
                                I want a much better and improved App for WP for it's own Windows platform with beauty and feature rich.

                                1. Able to Sync Music/Videos/Documents.
                                2. Manage Phone basic settings.
                                3. Custom Libraries to Sync files
                                4. In-built store navigation and app management from PC
                                5. Complete backup and restore from Windows app [PC]

                                and most importantly MS needs to check itself…

                                      • Instagram, Tumblr, Snapchat Apps: Make Available For WIndows Phone

                                        It would be fantastic if the Instagram, Tumblr, and Snapchat Apps were made available for the Windows Phone in the marketplace. It's kind of a bummer that I can't keep up with any of my friends without these apps.

                                        • Please enable to download big files without Wifi

                                          Lumia 920 is a LTE Phone. There are a lot of good contracts to use LTE and a big data volume. Please enable a choice (w/ or without Wifi) for the Lumia 920 User with the next update. Everybody should be able to make a decision if he wants to download big files from Store or Nokia Maps by Wifi oder mobile connection.
