    Anything else you would expect to be supported that isn't?

    The article Unsupported_features_in_Windows_Phone recently got a timely update by Sb_Dev. This article is for things you might expect to be able to do on Lumia that you can't.

    Has anyone else got ideas of anything "not supported but should be" for WP8 that should be added?

    Perhaps this can be used as a guideline: http://wpdev.uservoice.com/forums/110705-dev-platform

    I added the link to the UserVoice page to the article, I guess people finding out that something they'd need isn't supported would want to get into contact with Microsoft on the issue.

    A good idea - there are a number of API gotchas I and others run into a lot, I'll have a look over at StackOverflow and see what devs are having issues with.

    Quick example: there's no way to save songs to the MediaLibrary, but you can in WP8. You can't save videos on WP7 or WP8.

    You also can't read videos in WP7 and WP8. Something that users find pretty annoying especially in regards to Apps like 6Tag and WhatsApp, so yes I'd say the whole MediaLibrary topic is pretty relevant to developers as well.

    Looks like very good set of additions - so yes, please do add those things and any other "gotchas" you see. When you're done please let me know. I'll share the article a bit more heavily for a week.

    Wow, this is a really nice list
    I can notice that giving at least a read-only access to a lots of stuff is a good start. Writing can always be dangerous, but the ability to enumerate stuff (music, video, settings) is cool
