    After having seen the how-to open web pages with cortana, I had the idea to develop an app that allows you to do that without having to pin them to the start screen. You can find it here: voice web | Windows Phone Apps+Games Store (United States)

    The app is still in beta (you can see that the design doesn't look very good), but I'd like to hear your feedback: what do you like? What do you want to be improved? Which features do you wish to be added? And, if you like the app, amke sure to drop a positive review and tell your friends

    Does it look like the start animation and the end animation directly after that? I'll try to get some troubleshooting in the app with the next update, should get out in 2 or 3 days...

    @Salix1: curently, you can't do that:( But a good idea for the future. I guess it won't take me long to get that and tomorrow afternoon, I've got some free time to do it. If the dev center works fine, the update should get out late tomorrow. And keep the feeback coming, it's the best way improve the app! (If you provide any valuable feedback, I'll give you a "thanks", of course)

    Have you said "web open test forum"? Or have you said "web open test"?

    I think it's my bad pronunciation of American English.

    my suggestion:

    Cortana must compare the spoken words with the shortcuts in the app

    If you want to be sure, you can try to type the command in the app, too and look if it works. If yes, then I can't do a lot (but I worked hard to make it as easy as possible, so spaces for example are removed in the url), If it doesn't work when you type it, too, then I can try to fix the bug.
    I'm also very interested in how good this works with people who speak American English as their first language, as I am from Germany, too.
