    A way to expand alerts content in the Action Center. Like with ESPN, I want to see the whole message with the breaking news...not just the first few words.

    please can EVERYONE vote for MS to replace the App list UI with something better and smarter way to group and manage the installed apps? I have been waiting for more than 3 yrs to see this change. We only have 2 UI in WP, primary tile page is good, another can be much better. Wonder what stopping MS to do this :-(.

    Here are the features I want the most:



    • Full support for editing Outlook (Exchange Server) appointments and tasks -- I don't want to keep going to Microsoft Outlook just to edit appointments and tasks. I want to do the editing on my Windows Phone. I want to be able to set categories. I want to create recurring and regenerating tasks using only my phone.
    Jargonz this works with Microsoft Exchange. I'm using Office 365 and no any issue to edit, update, change appointments, tasks, meetings.

    I'd like to see a decent password manager built into IE. A proper one requiring a master password, option for two step verification. The current 'remember my password' option doesn't seem particularly secure. I know 3rd party apps are available but they require cutting and pasting etc... Obviously should sync to IE across PC and tablets too. MS should have and publicise a high level of security for it.

    After reading a few other posts here and there I add:
    -decent embedded password safe
    -sms confirmation integrated with each sms, not apart
    -improve music player as in install a "stop music" function so it saves on having to download an app for just that!
    Thanks!

    Not sure, but when I look at my pureblack display I'm like how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

    You missed the point. I said "FULL support for editing Outlook (Exchange Server) appointments and tasks". Windows Phone offers only partial support. Try applying a category to your appointment using the Calendar app on your phone. You can't. The Calendar app doesn't support it. You'll need the full version of Microsoft Outlook to do that. Try creating a regenerating task using your phone. You can't. You'll need the full version of Microsoft Outlook to do that. The Calendar app doesn't even indicate if a task is regenerating.

    1) Interactive toast notifications;

    2) Wish-list in the Store;

    3) Ability to dismiss only one notification from an app in the action center instead of the hole group of notifications that belong to that app.

    Here are the features I want the most:

    • Option to override regional settings such as measurement system and date format -- This feature is supported in Windows through a Control Panel dialog box. This feature was supported in Windows Mobile through registry settings. I want the same capability in Windows Phone. The reason is that Microsoft keeps putting the wrong configurations in the regional settings. I want the override feature so I could correct Microsoft's mistakes.
    • Full support for editing Outlook (Exchange Server) appointments and tasks -- I don't want to keep going to Microsoft Outlook just to edit appointments and tasks. I want to do the editing on my Windows Phone. I want to be able to set categories. I want to create recurring and regenerating tasks using only my phone.
    • Option to set the minimum brightness in automatic brightness mode -- In automatic brightness mode, the minimum brightness is just too dim. I want to be able to increase the minimum brightness to make the display readable in the dark.
    I forgot to include the following features I also want:

    • Separate notification settings for SMS messages from unknown sources -- I receive spam SMS messages everyday. I don't want to be alerted every time my phone receives a spam message. Blocking the spammers' phone numbers won't work because they keep using different numbers. They probably buy many prepaid SIMs that they use only once and then discard afterwards. One solution to this spam problem is to have separate notification settings for SMS messages from sources that are not on my contacts list and not from the carrier. With this feature, I could just disable all notifications for these messages except the live tile. Then I could check for spam messages only when I have time.
    • Ability to buy an app or game as a gift for someone else -- I want to buy an app or game from the Windows Store as a gift for someone else. The recipient of the gift should have the option to reject the gift (in case the recipient finds the gift offensive).

    WP8.0 meets my needs as is, so I can't really think of anything major to add with 8.2.

    For me, I simply want some of the (undesirable) changes from 8.1 un-done:

    - bring back agenda view for the calendar.
    - bring back the beautiful photos hub.
    - pull all the games out of the app list and shove them back into the games hub where they belong.

    I want features that should have been there in the first place, like:
    • Volume control for the alarm clock
    • Data toggle in the action center
    • Home button as notification light

    The games in the store would became free ( those especially which are free in android )
    the action centre should have more tags (there are only 4)
    The phone become butter like again as it was with Windows 8 now it lags a little bit in windows 8.1
    Battery is drained faster in windows 8.1
    There should be a swipe from both sides left and right
    There should be Live wallpapers
    Games should be back in the game hub
    The calendar should show indian festivals too
    There should be an app like YouTube to browse videos (but better than YouTube from where we can download the videos too) already installed.
