    I posted a couple ideas in the new Cortana UserVoice that would make her more personable and more useful. One idea is knowing information on big events. So if I ask her to take me to a certain music festival or something, she can find where it is and open Navigation. My other idea could have much more potential. I suggested a Nokia City Lens type feature where Cortana can access your camera and give information on places you should go, landmarks, or maybe food since she can already predict when you might want to eat. Also as a gimmicky, but cool feature, she could comment on your surroundings like maybe, "Wow these streets are really bustling." Or something like that where she can sense certain images like people or animals or whatnot.

    Have her use the camera to "see" surroundings and help. Similar to City Lens - Cortana Feedback

    I don't mean to highjack this thread but, I have also posted an idea to the uservoice: Support multiple Work locations, School as a location and read location field from appointments.

    Voted, I've been wanting to add school and my multiple student jobs! Good suggestion. We really need to request as many cool features as we can

    Voted for the ideas listed above... all three of which I think would be useful. If we could turn this thread into a place to list the WPCentral Uservoice suggestions for Cortana, that would be handy as a way to track forum members suggestions. I've also added a suggestion on Uservoice for Cortana, about a way to have her provide unprompted comments (in a non-intrusive way) on stuff that you've asked her to track:

    Cortana unprompted interactions (in a non-intrusive way)

    This is an idea that they should be able to implement by simply expanding the system they use for new text messages now, so it should be quite doable at a basic level.

    I agree with VelJharig. We should get a sticky on this thread so we can work together to improve Cortana!

    I was about to post an item related to having a separate field for phonetic spellings for contact names and I discovered there was already one. I think this would be great, so go vote!

    Phonetic spelling options for names
