    Hi all,

    You've got some app ideas but you're not a developer and want to share those ideas? If so then you're at right place.Please share some ideas and keep this thread alive because i really think it'll will be very helpful for developers.
    Developers will get new ideas without wasting much time and they will know what kind of apps do we want and guess what? They will work on these ideas and possibly you will get what you wanted :)

    Okay so I'll start. I want a steam app and an app to unblock YouTube.


    @moderators Please move this thread to the appropriate forum because I don't know which one is more appropriate :P

    I am a developer but I don't have a WP8 phone yet (will in a few days hopefully).

    You could create an app called "App Ideas" that looks up the top 10 or 20 apps in the App Store and Google Play, then checks the Microsoft store to see if it exists on WP. You could list those so that people have a better idea of what is missing. That would be a nice little dev tool.

    That will be very helpful for all the developers out there and this app will be a slap on the faces of those who say that App Gap doesn't exist.
    As you said you are a developer. So,will you create this kinda app?

    And congrats for your new WP8.

    I would love an app that induces loads of productivity and practicality. I feel like truly productive, yet practical apps are hard to come by in the Windows Phone Store. For example, an app that is extremely intuitive for the user, but its function is beyond useful for getting a simple problem solved or a simple task done. To be honest with you, there isn't any one suggestion I could make regarding an app like this, but it's just a trend (or lack thereof) I've noticed with the Store; all the productivity + tools apps are flashlights and/or all-in-ones, apps that include GPS, altitude, speedometer, etc all in one app.

    My "new" WP is a used 920 since my Titan II broke =( If I were to build such an app I think it will probably have multiple purposes. I would want it to also look up apps and games that are missing from the WP store, but also find similar (or clone) apps that fill the gap. That way developers know what is missing and casual users will know that even though the official app isn't there, alternatives exist, and sometimes they are better.

    Actually I think I will write that=)

    I'm really happy you're writing such an app.I hope it'll be great (am I expecting much? LOL). Good luck with your project. :)
    Even if the 920 you're getting is old, it doesn't matter because it's still new one for YOU :).

    Okay So I've found a killer app idea and I'm not a developer so I'll leave it to the developers if they want to write such an app.
    ------------
    Name: Bird Sounds ( or anything you want)
    Well the idea is to write an app which would allow you to discover the type of bird that was singing in your garden or at the countryside. Simply turn on the app and allow it to detect the sound of the bird, and it would then display the results on your phone.
    --------------
    How you would make money?
    Make money with Bird Sounds App by charging the client per download. You could also market the app through various wildlife societies.

    Another great idea 💡 coming soon :P


    Edit: Well the idea is here!
    App Name: XRAY Vision
    This is an app that will allow the user to show their friends that they have x-ray vision. Simply hold the camera on your phone up to a wall and you will get a video image of what is happening next door.

    How this will make you money?

    You will not charge for app download but you can attach a small fee for downloading different scenes which could be funny or naughty.

    Interesting huh?

    I was looking for a good app that lets you put watermark on your photos before uploading them to social networking sites (FB, instagram, twitter, etc) but so far no success. What i want is it accepts all image file types, lets you scale it to your liking, allows you to edit the transparency to your liking. If you know how adobe lightroom does its watermarking feature, that's basically what i need for an app plus it lets you decide what blending mode it does (more like the blending modes in adobe photoshop layers) . I could dream for this app but i can't create it.

    That sounds simple enough, although I never tried adobe lightroom though so can you post some screenshots of what it is exactly that you need?

    Interactive lock screen app. For instance I have a pic of my daughter. I would love to have an app where as I unlock my phone with her pic it will be her voice saying "hi daddy" or anything you can record.

    I have been looking for an app that will let me keep track of the last time I have completed tasks, instead of scheduling tasks in the future. I ran across a link for an iOS app that is exactly what I was looking for. Apparently, the developer pulled it from the store because he didn't have time to keep up with it. I couldn't find anything like it in the WP Store, so hopefully someone can make one for us.

    The basic idea is that you add an event (changed oil in car) which automatically has the current time and date (which can be changed to make it a future or past event) and when you click Save, it adds the event with that date as the last completed date. You build the list like this over time. Next time you "change the oil" you just click that event, and click the Now button to quickly add another completed date to that event.

    Also, I would like to add that I would be willing to pay $2-$4 for an app like this since it is probably niche and not something that everybody HAS to have.

    I think branedge is replying to me. He sent me a private message.
    Anyway I also have another app idea which is already present in android and iOS but is not yet developed for WP. It's called photo repost app targeting instagram users who wish to put the original owner's name as watermark when reposting their photos in instagram. :)

    Oh man, this is such a simple but great idea, I'll start working on this today, I'll probably message you/post here by saturday/sunday to add you as a beta tester. Cheers man! :)

    WP doesn't have a very good expenses tracker yet. Most of them is either the UI is good but lack of features/transitions or the other way around.

    I would help any of the developer to make the best expenses tracker fpr wp8.1 (since wp8.1 sports faster and better transition animations) by making the design or even allowing me to make the .xaml. just PM me if youre interested

    I have been using a WP for nearly one year after more 4 years on iPhones. WP desperately needs a call and SMS blocking app similar to iblacklist on a jail broken iPhone.

    Even though W8/8.1 has the ability to block calls and SMS, it is limited. An app where separate contacts can be entered and are protected by a pass code. User selection of live tile that hides the purpose of the app. The app should have the ability to hang up, busy tone, ring with no action and voicemail. These selections should be selectable for each number. It should also have a time scheduler, whitelist option and the ability to create multiple blacklists. The app should be able to operate in quiet mode when the phone is being used.

    Iblacklist for iPhone costs around $15. I would be more than happy to pay the same for a WP version of this style of app. I believe many other WP users would also be happy to pay.

    I am not sure whether this is possible or not with the WP firmware. I hope so.
