    I currently have 2 apps:

    Pretty Clock and Pretty Compass

    I'm passionate about simple and beautiful design and I am looking for ideas for my next app to add to my collection. I would like suggestions for apps that either aren't on the store or there are only ugly versions available on the store. so get suggesting! :)

    An app that automatically backs up your sms and mms messages to a chosen email account. Common app on android, can't believe its not WP8 yet, I would pay money for it.

    WP8 already backs up your messages to your Microsoft account is that not enough? And unfortunately an app cannot access your messages so wouldn't be able to back them up.

    A stop button? What do you mean? Pause and stop are the same? Or do you mean so that if you press stop and then play, it would play from the beginning?

    How about a car cam app? They are getting more popular as stand alone devices but if you have your phone mounted on the windshield why not use it? It does not have to be complicated and I think it would be easy to activate with a dedicated tile that you tap to start. In that same vein - how about a time lapse app? I just got my Nokia 920 and I am still exploring the app store so these things may already be out there.

    If you go to your 'settings' app, choose backup from the list and then choose 'text messages'... at the top of the next page should be text message backup and chat backup.

    Is this because there isn't a nice looking one?

    Try 'TimeLapse Pro'
    Timelapse Pro | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store

    Would that be good enough for your car dash use as well or would you like a separate dedicated app?

    yes, but isn't this purely for if you have to reset your phone etc, you cannot see the messages in SkyDrive, unless things have changed? I would like it to keep all text messages in an email chain for each contact, as the android app does?

    It is to restore the messages to your phone but you can see picture messages and skype, facebook, messenger chats all within outlook online and it makes mentions of text messaging so maybe they're trying to implement it look...

    Found a way to view EVERY text message you have ever sent and recieved! It even shows them as unread if I havent opened the text message on my phone WOW!

    In Outlook if you click 'messaging history' on the left hand side then look at the URL of that page...

    should be similar to this...
    [CODE]https://blu154.mail.live.com/?n=12345678&fid=&as=1#n=12345678&fid=b[/CODE]


    If your remove the end bit after the &as=1 then press enter it suddenly shows all texts instead of your facebook and skype chats etc!
    [CODE]https://blu154.mail.live.com/?n=12345678&fid=&as=1[/CODE]

    (dont copy this URL because yours will be different)

    that is cool, why its hidden I do not know. Still room for improvement, would be great if it showed contact name instead of mobile number or in addition to. And also if it put texts into threads, say 100 per contact then start a new chain. But certainly worth knowing this feature is there, especially having a nightmare ex wife, always good to keep all communication 😁

    I was JUST about to post a request. Glad I saw this thread. How about an app that let's you control the email and text notification behavior BY CONTACT.

    WP let's you change the ringtone for each contact, but not for texts and emails. Let me explain...

    When I go into a meeting, I tend to put my phone on vibrate. I'm an emergency first responder, so when I get a text or email from my notificaiton system, I NEED TO HEAR IT ASAP. I would like the ability to set a "red alert" for example from my notification system so I NEVER miss a notification from it regardless of whether my phone is on vibrate or not.

    I know this is something people have asked for but after this morning, where I missed a call for a despondent person (ended up committing suicide), I REALLY NEED this ability.

    (Blackberry and other platforms have had this ability for YEARS!!!! It still confuses me as to WHY Microsoft doesn't do this natively.)

    Not trying to spam, but your apps look great how about notifications or that to much to fool with?

    Simple apps: audio recorder, stopwatch and timer.

    Can you make any app for SIPE Client like officetalk in android.
    Due to use of a Class B Certificate for authentication, we are unable to use the official Lync Client, so an alternate will be better.
    I have not seen any alternate but I think it should be possible.
