First of all I'd like to thank you for this service and the amazing application you guys have made, it's a real life-saver. But there are two things I think could improve it very much:

1. I'd like to be able to launch applications from PlayOnLinux, for example if I install the linux client for Heroes of Newerth it would be awesome if I could create a shortcut in PlayOnLinux to that game (without wine trying to run it) so POL will become an ultimate game library. It would be so nice to have all of my games collected in one place where I can launch them wether it's games for windows or linux.

2. It would be awesome to be able to use winetricks in prefixes, for example if I want to install a new game by myself (not via a POL-script) but I'd need winetricks for it I should be able to choose wether I want to open winetricks to install certain things in that prefix. It would make huge difference!
