Two cool things in Windows 8.1 I'd like to see come to Windows Phone

With the first real Windows 8.1 details being announced today a few new features have jumped out at me as being cool to see in Windows Phone in the future.

There will no doubt be other features that get announced and/or I may learn about that would be great to see included in Windows Phone V next, but as Microsoft have said that there are plans to bring greater parity between the two platforms this may be possible.

Multiple images on the lockscreen (that alter like a slideshow) 

Having a dynamic lockscreen is brilliant but often you want more than one app to be providing the informaiton. This coudl be a solution.

Automatically updating apps without requiring user intervention 

Because people are very bad about updating when left to do it themselves.

There are, of course, new APIs and apps that it wolud be nice to see come to Windows Phone but I thought these 2 features were worth special note.

What is there on "Big Windows" that you'd like to see come to Windows Phone?

To be clear, I have no knowledge of what will be in any future version of Windows Phone or when that may be. This is just me thinking out loud about what I'd liek to see.

If you've built Windows Phone or Windows Store apps you can cross-promote them with AdDuplex to get more users.
