Microsoft asks developers what APIs are needed to build successful apps for Windows

Microsoft is calling on developers to submit what APIs they need or want to be able to build apps. "As we continue to evolve and grow Windows, we want your feedback on the APIs you need to be successful," the company said in an open forum message asking developers to voice their needs.

"The most useful feedback will be in the form of requests for specific APIs or specific 3rd-party libraries, along with a general description of the scenario they help solve," the company continued. Additionally, it also wants to know if developers need to break free of the app sandbox to properly implement and use the API.

So, what APIs do you need access to for Windows apps? Be sure to sound off in the comments and let Microsoft know.
