    This may also be more of an MS update than a dev app, but I would LOVE to see a "hiking" mode to go alongside the run and bike modes. The simple implementation would be exactly like the run, but would be filed and kept separately as stats in MS Health. A more ambitious implementation could involve climbing/descending sense. Seems like an easy and obvious addition of existing functionality!

    1. Wake up alarm when in shallow sleep mode.
    2. Some way to give turn notifications when following a course for biking, hiking, driving, etc.
    3. Connect the dots for sleep deprived people--automatically tell me what am I doing when I sleep best and what I am doing when I sleep the worst.

    Just to reiterate, in the Microsoft Band SDK's current state, developers are able to only do the following:

    1. Write an app for the phone that can read sensor data from the Band in real time.
    2. Send a text notification to the Band
    3. Create a tile on the Band that can receive text notifications with small icons from a phone app.
    4. Change Me Tile background, and theme colors.


    Note that currently connection to the Band will not persist if the app is moved to the background or the screen is locked.

    Developers cannot write apps for the Band that actually do anything directly on the Band. No custom alarm apps, no barcode displays—nothing. The Band cannot initiate connection with a phone, (Not that this matters, as developers cannot write apps that have any functionality on the Band) so no apps that ring phones, no apps that control music, etc..

    A way to locate my phone, if I somehow misplace it by watch and vice versa. (Example) I lost my phone in the house, "hey find my phone" or something. Make it ring.

    Just possibly for that odd time.
    THIS, microsoft needs to implement this officially, i cant tell you how many time ii find myself going on windowsphone.com to ring my phone, being able to do it on my band would be so convient

    I think my wish list app could work then.

    I want an app that reads my skin temperature and alerts me if I am overheating. Since getting heat exhaustion and ending up in the hospital a few years ago, I seem prone to overheating now and am a little paranoid and overcautious about it. And the first thing that goes is your sense of judgement -- so a little nag would be helpful.

    Incidentally, it would also warn of an impending hot flash, although I'm not sure that would be particularly helpful. :)

    Band battery percentage indicator - this could be both a tile option on the band itself or something that's visible in MS Health on the phone.

    I think that could be made into a simple option setting, because when you pull the screen to the right you get the battery icon of level its at. But that could easy be change to a number reference, which I would welcome as well :)

    If I am understanding the developer capabilities properly, I would love some of the golf gps apps already on the phone be compatible with the band. I could have my phone in my bag or pocket but user the band as my gps
    herho likes this.

    I want a game you can play without being obvious during a meeting.

    It would probably have to be a strategy game, so you can keep it casual. Bonus points if part of it can be played without looking at the screen. (Perhaps using the haptic feedback and motion sensors.)
