  2. Can't check Outlook calendar while composing an email in Outlook

    Create an Outlook Calendar "button" that can be added to Android's "Floating Bar." It would open the Calendar portion of Outlook when clicked, even if Outlook is being used to compose an email. At the moment, if a user is composing an email, and needs to refer to the Calendar, they have to stop composing and go through too many steps to get to the Calendar.

  3. Make the Windows Phone 10 Keyboard into an app for Android

    The Windows Phone 10 Keyboard was awesome... The keys expanded visibly upward when clicked, and the keyboard itself had a much better layout than any of the ones on most Android phones. The tie-in to the chosen theme was also perfect.

    There are many keyboard apps out there, but none are as good as the Windows Phone 10 Keyboard.

  4. Control groove music(stored library) on pc from phone for when pc is connected to speakers.

    So if I have my computer connected to my music system which may not necessarily be wireless, I'm looking for an option to see and control my Groove Music library from the phone. Then if it can be extended to other 3rd party apps like Spotify, broser apps like YouTube, basically a seamless transition.

  5. Most used apps in app drawer instead of recent. We have the recent apps already in the OS.

    Simply replace the top row of recently opened app icons with those that are used most often. The current situation is a good example of bad redundancy.

  7. sort folders by most used

    Like the "Frequently Used Apps" Widget, users own custom folders should have a Most Used sorting option.

  11. quick search layout optimisation

    the layout of the quick search feature in the launcher (where the frequently used apps are displayed) must be optimised. Currently the search suggestions take up all the space on the screen when the keyboard is visible. This allows no space for the Apps (search results) to be visible with the keyboard. To get to the App Search Results the keyboard needs to be retracted everytime - this is very inconvenient.

  14. Quick Apps launcher

    Please add Quick Apps launcher wherein I can add apps that I use frequently. This will help me access Apps directly without having to use the apps drawer. This quick apps launcher can be added to the home screen, and will contain more than one preferred app. For example one quick Apps launcher will contain 5 apps that I use frequently. This will also avoid clustering the home screen with more individual apps.

  19. Reset frequency used app.

    I want feature to reset frequently used app. As with many days of use, if we install new app that I am going to use often, it will take number of days and click to show new app in the list. It will force me to use app drawer for those app.
    If I can reset app list. It can show up much quickly.

  20. Give me a phone that doesn't go thru Google /android servers. Loved my 1520 Nokia.

    MS Launcher should redirect to Microsoft servers but not going thru Android servers. Or any method available to avoid Google platforms.
