    Hi guys,I just got registered as a dev 2 days ago and I published my first app yesterday.Now I want to make my next app for which I require your views.
    Tell me if this is a good idea for making my new app?

    How about an app which lists ALL the WP Xbox games achievements?
    To make you understand better,why I got this idea was because of the slow games hub in WP8.1(dev preview),2 kinds of people are facing problem:-

    1-Xbox games freaks like me who want to check the achievements of games to see whether they are difficult to accomplish or not.
    2-People like me who don't always have an internet connection to see what they have to do to earn some achievement and some games don't show you the achievements until you are connected to the internet eg:-Rabbids Big Bang(This problem is faced by WP8 users as well because you can't see achievements without having an internet connection)

    So,the app I am planning to make will do these things
    >>It will work offline.
    >>It will list all the achievements of each game even those which you havent downloaded yet.(though it can't show how much you have accomplished because I'm not sure how devs can access that,I'm an amateur after all)
    >>It will show the gamer score of each achievement.
    >>It will be updated by me if and when new xbox games are hopefully released for WP.

    So now tell,me is it a worthwhile idea?Personally,it would be extremely useful for me but I want to know if anyone would be interested in this app before I start developing. :)
    Suggest whether I should go for it or not. :)

    P.S:-I've already told you I'm a new dev so I can't do anything which is very complicated but just so you have an idea of how much I can do,you can see the app which I published yesterday :)

    P.P.S:-I made a promise to myself that I will publish all my future apps,games for free :P ;)

    Hey Usama. The TrueAchiever app technically can list all Windows Phone game Achievements and a lot more, but that doesn't mean people wouldn't enjoy a smaller app focused on just listing the WP Achievements. I guess you could also link to Achievement guides at Xbox360Achievements or something, just to make the app more useful. Good luck, and let me know when it's published!

    Oh! :(
    I didn't know of the True Achiever app. :(
    I'll download it and see if there are any essential things it's missing.
    If it is great,I'll think of some new idea for an app,if it isn't,I"ll make an app solely for the purpose of listing achievements and maybe try to link it to Achievement guides as Paul suggests :)

    P.S:-It has 4.5 star rating so I guess you guys might not need one after all but I'll think about it :'(

    Just downloaded and checked the true achiever app, it is really awesome except for 2 major things:-
    1-it always requires an internet connection to work, at least that's what it said when I opened it without an internet connection.

    2-It requires a true achievements.com account which I don't think many people have
    (specially Indian users)

    I think I should go for an app which lists all the achievements offline and look to add guides in future updates, what do you guys say?

    I think my app would be very useful specially for Asians and Africans as most of us don't always have an internet connection and not all of us are aware trueachievements.com :D
