  1. Microsoft People

    Please introduce an Android version of the "People", "Calendar" and "Messaging" apps to complete the eco-system. Having just recently moved VERY RELUCTANTLY from my Lumia 950 I'm finding the lack of these three Apps is really hurting what was a seamless experience previously (and yes I know Calendar and Contact functionality is in the Outlook App but this cannot be used for messaging, calling or seamless integration with the rest of the phone).

          • Vertical app drawer, but not alphabetically split

            A vertically listed app drawer with every letter after the other. The way it is now makes my list so much longer than it has to be.

              • Technology and Gaming news feed

                There are many great options for the news feed, however most of my interests lie in tech and gaming (this is the company that created the Xbox, correct?).

                      • Microsoft Launcher needs to login by fingerprint.

                        Asus ZenUI 4.0, in Zenfone 4, uses fingerprint login.
                        When will the Microsoft Launcher implement fingerprint login?

                            • Replace Wunderlist app integration with Microsoft To Do app

                              Now we have Wunderlist integrated, but you have plans to shut down that app. Microsoft already have new app, To Do, so it would be way more usefull to integrate that new app in the launcher. I switched from Wunder to To Do but still not using widgets on the left side screen. To Do came out few monts ago, now we all know that Wundet is going away, so convince us to use your new app integrate it in launcher. Also it would be nice to se OneNote integrated on launcher instead Notes widgets. Save the look of widget…

                              • Please, please give launcher the full Windows active tiles UI. It's the MS mobile signature loved by millions !

                                The complete widows phone UI was awesome - don't loose it please. It's bad enough I have to retire my Lumia 930 for a Samsung S9+ ! ( Have to say the Samsung is a slick performer however). Come on guys make Launcher the complete Windows phone makeover.

                                • Can you please give us an option to always show ALL DAY EVENTS in the calendar feed.

                                  I use all day events to remind me of ongoing projects I am currently doing. I want to see them all the time. Can you give us a settings toggle to switch for people like me so the all day events are never hidden.

                                    • Integrate Timeline into the Overview/Recents screen on Android P

                                      So google has made it possible to have a custom overview/recents screen in Android P (DP2).

                                      https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/05/14/android-ps-new-overview-app-switcher-part-launcher/

                                      This opens the possibility of having timeline directly integrated into the app switcher instead of some other place. Please please please consider this implementation.
