As the title implies, we’re looking for your input on what is missing from Windows Phone 8. Yes, it’s a somewhat of an odd question because as you know, Microsoft has not “officially” unveiled the entire consumer features of our waiting-in-the-wings OS. But you do know what we’ve shown you from the leaked SDK. Moreover, we know for a fact that some people back in Redmond want to know your thoughts on what you’ve seen so far—otherwise we wouldn’t be asking.
So consider this an unofficial-official survey of the largest Windows Phone community on the Internet...
Here’s how we are going to do this: Instead of tossing up a survey or poll, we’re going to let it be a free-for-all in comments. Simply write in what you think are the top-three missing features (or that we haven’t seen yet) from Apollo. Try to keep the diatribes and debates limited, as we would like some clean, concise results. For example:
- Notification center
- New backgrounds for the Start screen (not just dark/light)
- Facial recognition for screen unlock
In 24 hours, give or take, we’re going to take a gander of the results and try to come up with what are the top 5 features which you folks think are missing from the new OS. Then we will put up a poll to measure the priority which items are the most important to the community.
Now granted, we know for a fact that there are things we just don’t yet know about this OS so some items you many think are missing are actually there. Thems the breaks though as we’re working with what we have in front of us. Remember, things like screen-capture, options for alerts, app backup, etc. have been pretty much confirmed already, so try to think of things we haven't yet seen (you can go through our coverage first to get an idea: www.wpcentral.com/tags/sdk)
And yes, if you are curious our results will be passed on to Microsoft for consideration by their team and their engineers, so please take this seriously…but have fun with it too. Go!
