The Windows Store is ever growing, but sometimes the app you’re looking for is only available for Windows Desktop (or only on Android or iOS). Here is you’re opportunity to show those companies just how much interest there is for seeing it as a Windows Store app!
Requests should be for a specific app by a company or a developer that has an app (or apps) on Windows Desktop, iOS or Android but not in the Windows Store. Just because you vote, doesn't mean they will listen.
I realize that many companies have official support requests to determine the level of interest in a Windows Store app. If that's the case, feel free to add a comment to the request here with the link. In some cases, there are multiple such official requests, so this can sometimes make it easier to judge the interest level.
I periodically reach out to the companies and developers to try and show them the interest level and get updates. Some of the Windows evangelists also use this site to help their conversations as well.
If you're looking for a Windows Phone app, check out WP Requests instead.
Some guidelines for submitting requests
(Remember, there is just one person maintaining this site right now so I'm asking you to help me keep the request quality high.)
Please search for your app first to limit the number of duplicate requests. Ideally, search the Windows Store and WinStore Requests before creating your request.
Please try to include a description of the app being requested and, if appropriate, a link to the company (or person) who developed it. This helps me know who to contact for feedback/updates on status and also helps others who might want to vote on the request.
Requests should be for a specific app by a company or a developer that has an app (or apps) on Windows Desktop, iOS or Android but not in the Windows Store. While general requests for apps are appreciated, right now this forum isn't the right place for them. (If there is enough interest, I may add a second forum.)
Please try to keep your requests to one app per request. There are several companies/developers who make multiple apps that could become a Windows Store app, but submitting a single request for all of them doesn't help us (or them) prioritize. Requests containing multiple apps may be declined or you may be asked to split them up.
Please suggest apps that do not already have an official app in the Windows Store. If you want to request enhancements, improvements, new features, bugs, etc. about an existing official app, please direct them to the appropriate developer or company. These requests will be politely declined on this site.
If you want to request enhancements, improvements, new features, bugs, etc. about the Windows operating system or any of the "built in" apps (like Internet Explorer, Music, etc.), please do so at the Microsoft Community for Windows. These requests will be politely declined on this site.
WinStore Requests is moderated and is a voluntary participation-based project. If your submission is not an application request for an official application it may be removed.
