    Instead of having lot's of threads over time asking for things, I thought it might be good to have a single thread to put all the most requested features into one place.

    So, what are your top requested features for the app?

    Clarification: I want to be told when I have likes and thanks. I think Jay may have said something about it not being possible at some point but not sure.

    Mentioned this in the app threat, but I guess it would be good to reiterate it in a feature request thread.
    • Ability to post photos to forum posts.
      • Each device pretty much has their own dedicated photo thread, it would be nice to be able to share on there directly from the device. That is probably the biggest deterrent for me. Skydrive sync is a good work around, but those of us on small data plans can't really afford that, thus being able to selectively post to the forum when wifi becomes available I think is a good idea.

    • Pin specific forums/sections.
      • I think it would be nice to be able to pin specific sections or forums to the start screen, and use the live tile to tell the user how many new threads there are or replies. Threads would mainly apply to say, if I pinned the Lumia 900 forum to my Start Screen. Replies would be more like if I were to pinned that "Participated" section to my Start Screen so I know when a thread has been replied to.

    • Make the "lock portrait" available in the app bar.

    Don't auto-start the pod cast when you click on the pod cast tile. I've done that by mistake a couple of times and had to restart the phone to get rid of the media player. Ideally, I'd like to see a summary of the current podcast and hit "play" if I want to listen to it.

    Moderator functions. If I can moderate using that app it will be godly. On my phone, screen space is at a premium, the WPC app lets me focus on the content, so I can deal with abusive posts easier.

    The not playing content automatically will be looked into, it's on the checklist :)

    Working links in the articles would be great. Especially links to app download pages.

    Functioning URL links in forum posts.
    The ability to select and copy text from forum posts.
    Return to top of page when moving to the next page of a forum. Currently as you read to the bottom of a page and go to the next page you start at the same point you were on the previous page ie. the bottom instead of the top. This can be a little annoying.

    Allow people to sign in using Passport. For the forums here, I sign in using my Live.com account. Anyone else who does the same as me can't leave comments/forum posts in the app.

    When browsing the forums, say I'm looking at the Lumia 920 section (under Windows Phone devices) but then back out to check out the Lumia 800, when pressing back it goes to WPCentral community section instead. Is it possible to make it stay under the section I was originally viewing?

    It seems to affect the WP8 app only... How do I jump to this conclusion? It stays on my WP7 HTC Titan but jumps back to community on my WP8 Nokia Lumia 920.

    Yeah I just checked on my Lumia 800 and it works fine there. On the 920 it goes back to that main section.

    I'd love to see support for polls on the forums - I can't see any polls in the app.

    I don't know if this is a feature request or not, but Windows RT/8 support would be nice.


    Native always beats out websites for me.

    +1

    When you move to the next page it should take you to the top of the next page no matter your reading position on the current page.

    It probably only makes sense to do the opposite when moving to previous page. Take you to the bottom of previous page.

    Something I would like to see on the app / site is the ability to collapse comments / threads and/or possibly a '+' rating system to rid the site of the dorky +model number of your phone, comments. I doubt that a rating system is on the way, so collapsable comments would be nice.

    It would be nice to get the "pull to refresh" gesture that's used in the Facebook and Twitter apps 😊
