    Interactive and replyable toast notifications are number 1. Separate volume for alarm for sure. I did like the hubs from previous os' versions all the way back to7.5. But hey I just cane from lowly bb10 where each of these were built in features

    I think Cortana could be improved by adding certain parts as notifications. Unless I open her how do I know that there's been a traffic incident and I need an alternate route/etc

    Since switching to Windows Phone from Android there are some things that I have found lacking in Windows Phone 8.1.

    1) A backup that actually works instead of failing at 96-98%. I know some people have gotten it to work by jumping thru some hoops. This should work out of the box. I am also reading that a restore does not restore everything back to the way it was. Having worked with computers for the past 40 years, this is unacceptable. Android has plenty of backup programs that actually work. Even the built-in backup and restore work without jumping thru hoops.

    2) OTG support for connecting an external USB drive.

    3) One I mentioned previously in this thread - A sorted list of the ringtones. Trying to find a particular ringtone is a pain. Right now it is random. It would be nice to see it alphabetically. Also separated into ringtones, notification tones,...

    4) A Windows type file explorer that sees all of the files automatically without having to add this and that to the file manager. I want to be able to see my files and folders immediately and not have to tell the file manager that I want to see my photos, oh now I want to see my music folders but I need to add them to the file manager etc. I just want to be able to click on the file manager icon and bang, all of my files and folders show up without having to do anything.

    I found 5 threads on WP User Voice for new features that could help WP to gain traction against Android. I started 3 of them and I hope all of you would appreciate these features so feel free to vote them!
    I would like to see these features in WP 8.2 or WP 9, whatever they call it...

    1. Updated Bing Maps with turn-by-turn navigation with voice and public transport. Microsoft has access to HERE data so why can't we have a single app for maps, navigation and public transport?? This is the link in WP user voice:
    https://windowsphone.uservoice.com/f...voice-navigati
    2. Document attachment in email
    https://windowsphone.uservoice.com/f...ment-in-emails
    3. File Picker is limited and cannot access OneDrive and other cloud storages. File picker should open the Files app or other file managers in order to be really powerful, like PCs. If I choose a file, a file manager will be opened.
    https://windowsphone.uservoice.com/f...er-to-be-a-rea
    4. Health Hub: Bing Health and Fitness and Healthvault should be fused in order to have a real, unique, health hub
    https://windowsphone.uservoice.com/f...lth-hub-needed
    5. Timeline view in photo hub, like in storyteller app. One app for everything...
    https://windowsphone.uservoice.com/f...n-pictures-hub

    I think that with those features WP will be like have a PC in our hand (except for the storyteller view in photo hub, this is just for pleasure).
    What do you think?

    Here's one more feature I want:

    • Live tile for Microsoft Outlook/Exchange tasks (in addition to the Calendar live tile) -- The Outlook tasks live tile should show the pending tasks. Tapping the live tile should launch the Calendar app and go directly to the list of tasks.

    A tile that covers "all the screen", i mean, that cover side to side even using the third column. Double wide tiles?

    -Old photo hub
    -Old lock screen ( I had customized wallpapers, they don't "fit" anymore, its a mess now)
    -Android like toggles in AC (swiping left/right)
    -Get Lumia updates through DP right away and not wait for carriers to "test" it..
    ....
    More than anything else I want to move chat history from WhatsApp from one device to another (w/o SD - I don't have it). This probably has nothing to do with MS and apps can backup its data to OneDrive now. It's just WhatsApp too slow not giving this option to us

    -Old photo hub
    I want all hubs back. Actually, the photos app is the only one I like more then before, I'd still like to access all photo related apps like before. A compromise between old hub and new 'all photos' page that opens right away would be great. I never clicked anything but 'albums' before, so that page was useless.


    I want bing vision to have a separate launcher, because it's very hard to launch it since Cortana took place on the search button. I just want to quickly scan my barcodes...

    Here's my list. Using my Lumia 720

    - 3G(data) button in quick menu (scroll down)
    - Improved quick menu (now it still leads me to the setting menu when i try to turn of wifi)
    - Interactive/separated notifications
    - more tile sizes
    - Customizable life information.
    - App menu sorting options (favorites, abc, apptype)
    - Group tiles
    - More custimizable lockscreen (quick reply on messages)
    - IMPROVED BATTERY LIFE
    - Scrolling option for photo options (the bubbles on the left)
    - NO "RESUMING" APPS ANYMORE WHEN GOING BACK TO APPS
    Hate when this happens.. when im planning train trips, surfing internet, or sending Messages..

    - Onedrive music player.

    Thats all i could come up with right now.. those will make it WAY better

    Think of your favorite live album....you know how in between tracks there's some crowd noise? Without gapless playback there will be a second or so of silence in between each track, instead of flowing smoothly.

    It's jarring, to say the least.
    Even more jarring on a Mixed dance Album... You totally lose the beat.

    - I would like to see my phone stop rebooting 2 or 3 times per day
    - To have Twitter and Instagram back as a sharing choices, When I switched to 8.1 DevPreview it went away
    - To show more than one calendar event on Live Tile
    - I would really like to have a Cursor Bubble above your finger so you can see where your moving it. (Think of how IOS moves cursor around)
    - In landscape mode, it would be nice if you could switch between apps like you can on a tablet, just swipe in from the left.. I think the phone is too small for it to work in portrait mode, you would be switching between apps without meaning to. On phone, currently the Notifications are coming when you swipe from the Top of the phone, but it should be from the Top of the phone as its oriented. Just like a Windows 8 tablet does.. If you turn it in landscape mode, the top stays the top and the left stays the left.

    Voice search for apps in store using Cortana with recommendations for which is the best alternative if app not found!!! notification led on the windows hardware symbol on Nokia phones (if the idea of battery drain comes along just have a settings function as to how much time passes between each flicker - the longer the time the less battery used) more animations for the live folders drop down view.
