    Better repeat appointment options in the calendar. At the very least match them up to what is available in the outlook.com calendar. And to be able to copy and paste appointments to another date and time.

    I agree with the earlier comment about Skype. I want either a better app or have it in the OS. Currently its slow, does give notifications for groups messages, etc. I use Skype a lot so I really want a better experience.

    Also, wireless printing is another feature I want.

    An advance Program Default Manager is still unconfirmed.
    For me this is the only major lack of the OS that is still pending confirmation.

    Windows Phone seriously needs a Program Default manager for both files and web-links. (ex. choose what program handles picture files or YouTube links.)

    I wanted a way to upload my high res photos to my box account. Pocket file manager does that now so everything else is just epic coding pluses for me.

    I would say forgot this voice control stuff - fine for showing off in the pub, but not actually very useful. Instead, allow installation of third party keyboards. Swype really is great!

    Double tap to wake using the Start button (and not the entire screen) like on the Surface!

    Rotation of the start screen. Similar to the surface layout.

    me too! though I wish I could set an image as background and there's a blurry layer on top, like on Windows (RT) 8.1

    Not sure about your phone, but on the 822, I just press and hold the previous (<<) or next (>>) button to rewind and fast forward...much better than a slider, IMO.

    It's the core of the OS. If you don't like it, you better start looking somewhere else... ;)

    Fair point, but I also find the tiles tiring to look at. Years ago, I did a short design course in how to avoid making users sick. According to what we were told, lots of animation in unrelated places is particularly stressful for users - our brains are attracted to movement and lots of different movement happening at once is certainly not relaxing. It's like having several lions attacking you at once. :-)The large blocks of bright colours can also cause eyestrain.

    I don't know how true this is, but I'd be interested to know if WP (and WinRT and Windows 8) users report higher levels of headaches, etc, than users of other UIs.

    None whatsoever, to me it is the opposite of cluttered and resembles a more calm and easy take on things.
    The tiles don't constantly spam or distract and I never had a headache from it ever

    Everything that could be ported from Windows 8.1, specifically:

    - Picture Password;
    - Installed/Not Installed/ Apps List inside WP Store;
    - The same Tools for Photo Edition;
    - Settings Page complete reorganization.

    And:
    - More Quick Notifications (more than 5), swapping for show more;

    I meant that I'm sick of the solid colours on the tiles, not the tiles themselves. Besides, no one is hurt on getting a homescreen. If you don't want it, just leave it alone. I have a nice collection of wallpapers but they are useless since I can see them only for a few seconds as the lock screen background.
    Lastly, what kind of attitude is this? WP already has a small market share, and if you suggest the small group of users that are a part of the platform to look somewhere else,then how is that going to help the platform in any way? I did not say that I want Android apps or widgets that someone should tell me to switch to some other platform. However, If this kind of a response comes to me, then I'm totally ready to start looking somewhere else.

    Totally agree.

    Also the lock screen should now be able to retrieve Notifications directly from the Action Center, meaning the pathetic 5 pre-set apps Notifications for the Lock Screen should disappear once and for all. This in combination with the advance Action Center we will get will make the "Notification Nightmare" of the platform a thing of the past.

    And I am going to be fully happy when Windows 8 follows soon.

    We don't think the same here... I listen to long Electro-House mix that have more than an hour, it's easier to go at 50 mins with a slider than with holding the buttons for me.
