    Well, I've actually just build a Windows 8 app, a game called Cat's Catch. So, if you'd ask me what I'd build now, I'd say... Cat's Catch 2! And maybe a super cool platformer a la Rayman that makes full use of the keyboards and Touch/Type Covers so many Windows 8 devices feature.

    I would build " a know your health status app" were details concerning your health can tracked by entering symptoms .

    I would build an application which helped caregivers of elderly or infirm and disabled family members to find community service supports.  There are many, many websites for these services, however depending on your physical location, there may not be an internet prescense that is easily to navigate.  The concept would be similar to Yelp for resaturant searches - only this would be for community-service related searches.  You would be able to input the type of service you are looking for: mental health, doctor referalls, local volunteer organizations, support groups, etc.
