What Google's app store really needs.
As a long-time Android user, I have some major suggestions....
1) Add local categories and be geography aware. When looking for news apps, should I really have to wade through ones that deal in local news for states thousands of miles away? Same for banking -- I am unlikely to need an app for a bank not even in my part of the country. Ditto for restaurants and other local businesses. Also, if I really AM interested in something from a distant city (say I am planning a trip), I am sure that an easy way could be added to turn on that area,
2) Categorize existing apps. I have been using Android for many years. Instead of "my apps" just being a chronological list of things that I have installed or purchased, why not let me categorize them into such categories as "must have," "games to play one day," "stuff I don't need often" and so on? Setting up a new Android device often means scrolling through pages and pages of apps that I do not currently want to install now (yes, I can have it install the same apps that are on a different device, but I don't always want to do that).
3) Maybe have a filter to exclude stupid games with in-app purchases? If I want to spend money on a game, I will just buy one where I own it. I will never buy anything within a game.
It also used to bother me that apps were sorted into two categories: games and apps. The top recommended games for me were all games, and the top-recommended apps for me were also mostly games! Maybe, just maybe, I want to install an app on my phone that is NOT a game -- an amazing thought, but it does happen. Fortunately, Google seems to have fixed that recently.
