If you are new to windows phone, you don't exactly know which icon do what action. So you have to tap on ... (context menu) every time.

Is it possible to change this?

For example:

  1. only icons (default)
  2. only text
  3. icons + text

Or do you know if is this planned in the future? I coudn't find any info on the web nor in the official Microsoft Dev Center.

text below icons in app bar

So result will be like this:

This is currently not possible and as far as I can tell from the Windows 10 Preview this is not about to change. I'd recommend posting your suggestion to the Windows Phone UserVoice site.
