Windows 10 is dramatically increasing the level of access that Windows apps have to user data. All Universal Windows apps will be able to access Contact, Appointment, Email, Messaging, and Call History data through the same APIs used by the Windows in-box apps. The session will cover best practices across all the data areas using a case study of a full-featured contacts application.  This includes reading data, keeping a cache up-to-date with change tracking, and even how to integrate with marquee Windows experiences.

      Is there a plan to relax mentioed email access restrictions? I am interested in app which can read and modify (flag) emails and I'd like to know what is the chance of this being exposed.

      Any chance getting the source code to the demos in the video? It's not in the SDK samples what I can see.
