    My most wanted feature. The one that I and anyone else wants is the elimination of these two words from the oS. Loading.... Resuming.... Anytime I see them, it makes whatever I'm doing slow to a crawl. Pisses me off as well
    That too ! Though I have been getting less and less of those in the apps i use ( minus skype I get the resuming screen )?

    That's exactly what I did. And 95%+ of other smart phone buyers. Nice on Steve! Anyone interested in solving that problem?

    Can't be helped if you desire a different UI. The tiles drove me to WP in the first place and I've stuck there, despite a brief stint with Android.

    It could be helped if Microsoft changed the UI or offered an alternative. They should look at Android, which allows different launchers to be installed. That would help solve the problem.

    Nice well said but you are forgetting a few items as well

    this is a rehash of my old post but it may over lap some of what you said
    Windows phone 8.1 list of items to work on
    1. Lock screen needs to be more expressive / Functional (more notification icons, , music controls on the lock screen with artist album and song labels ( we don’t need the album art like kitkat offers as the background).
    2. Lock screen lock options needed (ie picture password, voice unlock, face unlock, pattern unlock and pin).
    3. Actionable notification icons on lock screen option (double tap an icon will open the respective app.
    4. Battery percentage on lock screen
    5. Actionable Toast notifications mock up see attached pic.
    6. Action Center Toggles should be on and off switches not take you to the settings menu for wifi.
    7. Action Center Toggles should be at least 6 or more scrollable like Samsung does theirs.
    8. A toggle for Ring mode (Ring , Ring and Vibrate, Silent, vibrate).
    9. Action center notifications should be able to swipe left or right to dismiss them.
    10. Action Center notifications should auto collapse as more notifications come in (expandable and contractible ala android).
    11. Settings Menu can do with a tiled icon view as well as the current list view would be nice.
    12. When one taps phone we should have the option to go right into the dialer or the recent call screen. (I would prefer a sliding interface so from the dialer slide left for recent calls)
    13. An all programs grid view would be nice.
    14. When you launch Cortina she should expect me to speak or preferably a hello cortana would launch cortana from anywhere and she would be already listening to what I have to say.
    15. Folders should be built into the os not a nokia app.
    16. Make app resume and refresh time instantaneous or allow apps to periodically refresh in the background (ie getting a notification on fb messenger is faster than on my s4 but the apps has to resume then refresh to be up to date this should be seamless like on android. Maybe as a notification comes in the app refreshes and moves to a not suspended state for at least a minute so going into the app feels faster??? idk just saying MS).
    17. More BIG Name APPS that are coded properly with Full Feature set as ANDRIOD or IOS counterpart (I.E PAY DEVLOPERS TO BUILD AND UPDATE APPS FASTER KIND OF LIKE WHAT BLACKBERRY IS DOING.) Faster App updates (yes you Instagram lazy arse and others).
    18. Natively coded Facebook app please also chat heads or chat tile support would be nice for FB messenger.
    19. Power intensive apps native or not need to be refined
    20. More options under the camera UI settings menu I mean android and even BB have more options
    21. Notification light Support for non Nokia or devices not supporting glance screen (or an option to blink the windows key alone if notifications come in).
    22. Missing apps I need …. drop box, pulse news, oovoo, swarm ( foursquares replacement), google apps (youtube, google search, google+ etc), sound hound pro, and others
    23. IR blaster support??
    24. Keyboard is good … well done android phones I usually have to change for that but I have gripes. Do like LG or even Fleksy for android adjustable key size would be nice, add or remove certain keys would be nice, flick to the left would be good to delete works when swype is off, manually enter words into dictionary would be nice. Would love it if Windows would allow at least fleksy to integrate its keyboard into the phone as a replacement or if yall work with fleksy and integrate some of its features.
    25. Option to 3rd party keyboards maybe
    26. Option to separate ringtone and notification volume toggles.
    27. The X on an app in the task switcher should be a red Square with a white X in it stay true to windows please lol.
    28. Weather clock tile would be nice (I.E give the weather tile the option to show the clock on it too with options as to how you would like information displayed on the tile).
    29. Camera should show resolution options grouped under 16:9 wide or 4:3 for have resolutions to choose from and more options on the stock windows phone app

    mock up of the actionable notifications feature

    U want android and iOS on Windows Phone?
    Coz all those features are from iOS and Android
    Don't u want ur WinPhone experience to be unique from other Os's?
    Or just want an "integration" of features among OS's?

    great artists steal thats why Google and ios stole MS flat design
    bringing the features to windows does not mean a non unique experience as MS can implement it in a completely new way
    and btw one or two features are from blackberry ... actionable notifications are from bb that ios stole and made it their own ....
    this list is getting trimmed and refined btw ill post it when im done finding stuff in the OS that needs fixing or flat out improving.

    as well *** Google has impressed me with Android L and whats coming i miss Android honestly ... but i can life on windows phone once i get the apps i usually use MS needs to step up their game cuz i think google just blew windows, IOS and BB10 out the water ... so i hope WP 9 and windows 9 is impressive.

    I love Windows Phone, but there are some things I want to be changed, removed, etc:

    1. I want the lock screen to be dynamic. Let us set animated photos or possibly videos.
    2. Other lock screen options. Either photo password, pattern, etc.
    3. Traditional "Desktop". It would be cool to see an IOS/Android style area rather than Metro. Of course, optional, not forced.
    4. Better support for game developers, and leaner rules for Xbox Live compatibility. I love how I can earn achievements in games on WP and it ties to my XBL account. Lately I feel developers are no longer using the system and simply releasing non XBL games. Gameloft is a good example.
    5. Allow an easier phone unlock system. Like, allow us to enter our serial number to unlock the phone and allow for complete control.
    6. Again with above, but Id like some Windows Mobile style freedom with the phone.

    These are just my opinions.

    A future wp is not about features! The main advantage of wp is the UX! I changed recently to Android, and i regret it now. Therefore it would be a nightmare, if you make wp more like Android. Please, no grid Design, or any crap like that. Please don't focus on pure Features. Focus instead in the implementation of the Features. Make wp more Metro/modern... Thats All i got to say about wp9 or any future wp. But never the less i'm gonna change back in the next months...

    if its my number 3 you are talking about then ... i would think its obvious that if you double tap a notification icon it would ask for security credentials before taking one into the app to view notifications or what ever ...

    also one should be able to use the quick toggles to turn things on an off without unlocking.

    I had an Android phone ... so i knw what MS is lacking with in Windows Phone and what they are excelling in thanks very much.
    If you have nothing nice to say keep it to your self point is MS is dropping the ball with Windows and MS services on android are better than what comes with windows phone so sorry if my tips to make windows a little better is rooted in Android and other OS's

    btw settings is a mess

    if you did not like my post why make a comment.

    Why MS don't allow those features is essentially they did not think of it first so they will be reluctant to copy it and if they do like Action center now its limited and has an MS spin on it. That and they are too preoccupied with other projects to focus on their core products so I hope these lay-offs and restructuring gets them back to putting out worthy software. Android app development can take a back seat as well focus on windows windows windows ......

    I think you missed the point of my post, which was that Android allows alternative launchers (i.e. homescreen UIs). With Android, you could write an alternative launcher, try these ideas out and even distribute them to other people to use. Sadly, Microsoft do not allow that with Windows Phone, so you're stuck with what Microsoft choose to give you.

    oh cool i dont have an issue with the launcher they just need to make the stock one a bit more feature rich but MS dont listen to ppl like us im currently trying to build a app to kind of demonstrate what it ms should do with some of its apps black is nice a little colour never hurt no body
