    ToneStack

    ToneStack is is a guitar/bass multi-effects processing (and recording) application for musicians. Basically, it's a digital guitar amp(s) and stomp box effects program. There's many similar apps like it on iOS and Android (like "Amplitube") but this one is my favorite. I bought the full unlocked "motherlode" version for like $32 (yes, it's that good!)

    I've written the developer a few times and had conversations with him back and forth in their forums about supporting Windows and him possibly porting or writing a new Universal Windows 10 version... he says he's interested, but doesn't have the extra time right now.

    Also "Steel Guitar" by the same dev, Yonac

    While I'm currently a Windows Phone (1520) user, I do have an iPad Air 2 just for these kinds of apps that you just can't get on Windows Phone, or through the Windows Store for a tablet. Sure, a full Windows tablet like the Surface Pro 3/4 can run x86 legacy apps like Native Instruments Guitar Rig etc etc, but I'm talking about the "Metro" touch optimized style "apps" you'd get through the Store. The modern Windows app Store just doesn't have anything good like this...

    Those kind of apps, and a good DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). I really really wish Microsoft would create an answer to Apple's Garage Band! Say what you will, but Garage Band is THE most intuitive, feature rich, and amazing DAW available on a touch enabled device! It really is top notch, and not to mention it has instrument processing capabilities like the above mentioned app as well. With Apple's "Inter-app Audio" and the third party "Audiobus" application, all these apps work together in perfect harmony.

    Again, on the PC, of course there's always been full blown professional desktop legacy DAWs that are waaaaay more advanced (examples: Pro Tools, Cakewalk Sonar, Reason, Cubase, FL Studio, etc etc) but... for Windows touch enabled mobile devices... there is NOTHING!

    So, these kind^^^ of apps are what's missing for me. And one of the reasons I'm considering an iPhone 6S Plus as my next phone.


    Those apps, and then these games:

    Clash of Clans ((obviously, probably the most requested game ever!) - I have quite a few friends that play and are in a clan with them, but can only play when I'm on the iPad)

    Sim City Build It Love this game! (Been working on my City for over a year now.. would be nice to have on my phone!)

    8 Ball Pool by MiniClip - again... all my friends play this. Guess who can't play on his Windows Phone :(

    Angry Birds 2 !!! Really... where is it???

    Sine Mora

    Alto's Adventure

    I could go on and on with the games... but I'll stop here.

    Oh yeah.. almost forgot:

    a real Pinterest app
    a real YouTube app (and other Google apps if we choose to have them... Google Earth anyone?)
    a real non-"Beta" Instagram
    a better Twitter I agree
    Periscope?

    I could care less about SnapChat, but it does need to be there for the platform to attract the younger crowd I agree.

    Well, I'm not a Pinterest guy, but we DO need the official app, just like SnapChat to be competitive.

    I do love my games though!

    Google! Google Search, Google Drive, Google Docs/Slides, etc. Obviously MS's services are way better but there are some places where I need to use Google services and this would help me a lot.

    Everything that the compering platforms have that people always whine about. Until we have most of them we won't attract a lot of users. That, and the apps need to have the same features of the rivals.

    How about an app store that automatically removes the apps that haven't been updated in a month. Or at least gives me the option to sort by recent updates. Too many of the top rated apps haven't been updated in a very long time. If the dev doesn't care about their app, why should I install it?

    I don't use many apps on my phone, but there are a couple of things that would be nice to have. I use a Nexus 7 tablet though, and some of the apps/games requested above will never make it (at least not free) on to Windows Mobile unless MS allows terrifying amounts of advertising.

    Anyway, I'd like:-
    BBC Sport and News. We already have Sport, but it's never been updated or as good as the Android version
    BT Sport/TV
    YouView
    Other than that my accountant's mobile app would be useful but is far from a showstopper.

    As I've said in other threads there isn't much of an app gap for me the way I use my phone though.
