  1. Xbox Rewards App or Access on Xbox One Console

    I know personally I hate having to go to the xbox rewards site to claim my rewards or check how i'm doing, have an app on the xbox one which has a friendly user interface and simple to use! You can withdraw your Xbox Rewards points straight from your XB1!

  2. An app for voting for backward compatible titles

    Now that we can vote for which games become backwards compatible, it'd be really nice to be able to do that from our Xbox ones dashboard, plus it'd give a lot more numbers to use for the consideration of adding a game.

  3. Allow A Full Steam App On Xbox One

    Since Xbox One is running PC Architecture and the OS is windows based. Why not allow a full steam app on Xbox One? Even if you did something like not allowing any games that are being sold in the Xbox One Marketplace it would be a great way to get older titles on Xbox One.

    The PS4 has a great option of playing old PS3 games by streaming. Allowing Steam would add immense value to Xbox One. Xbox One would enjoy its library grow to the 1000,s in months with indies and devs only really having to map controls and…

  8. Make an ID@Xbox app

    There are many games appearing with the ID@Xbox program, but its hard to keep track of all of them and we end up missing some really interesting stuff.

    Would be cool to keep track of everything new its coming to the program, including release dates, descriptions, screenshots, trailers, a favorite tab, and even a "direct link" to the store when the game is released!

    That way gamers will be able to get much more informed about the increasing list of new independent developed games, its also a good way to give those developers products more exhibition So please, do it!

  9. Xbox E3 Experience At Home

    I have always dreamed about going to E3 like many other gamers around the world.

    A lot of gamers can't make the trip to Los Angeles for the week of E3 due to financial, health, and many other possible reasons.

    Wouldn't it be cool if you could bring the "E3 Experience" to people's homes around the world?

    Microsoft, create and app that allows Xbox One gamers to demo Xbox One E3 show floor games at home. So it's like bringing E3 home to Xbox One gamers around the world.

    Watching E3 game streams is cool, but I think I can…

  10. Integrate Forums into the New Xbox One Experience

    With the new upcoming Xbox One Dashboard/Experience, there is a new Community tab.

    It would be great to have the Xbox.com forums integrated into the console, so we can reply and post on the forums from our consoles, and use Cortana to type our posts for us!

  11. How about a system repair and diagnostic app?

    Last night I spent over 3 hours on the phone with a support agent. I was having problems installing a game for the kids. The Xbox was throwing 3 error codes. One was a common issue I found 47 search results for. It would be nice if when an error code pops up it would hyperlink to a description of common reasons for that issue. My issue happened to span from a game trying to be installed that was for a pc apparently. I found it in the game installation place. It wouldn't uninstall by going tother it and pushing…

  12. Europe wants more Apps!

    In Europe, especially Germany, there are only a few apps available.
    Today i changed my Xbox One to a US console to watch the E3 Briefing, because the german translater was very annoying.

    So i took a look at the US Xbox App Store and there were lots of Apps i have never seen at the german store. So please, we are also owners of the Xbox One and we want to have the same service!

  13. Bluray & DVD App Should Be Pre-Installed

    Hi guys, just inserted a dvd into the xbox one and it took my wife and I 5 minutes and a Google search to work out how to play a dvd that our 360 did seconds!

    Which product idiot came up with the idea of having to download an app, isn't this supposed to be the 'centre' of your home experience !!

    Microsoft, bundle the bluray and DVD app as part of the standard Xbox OS for goodness sake and get with the program and start creating a user experience.

    Recently Steam has released the hability to stream games from a PC over a local network, so you can have a high end PC for gaming in your office room and be able to play in you living room using a low end PC or tablet executing the Steam client app in slave mode.
