Lumiappaday #158: AppFlow App Discovery demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

| April 21, 2012 | 2 Replies


As you can guess from the title, AppFlow is an app to find more apps. App Discovery is a very important feature to address in an app store (well, as is discovery in any store). When you have a wealth of items, you’re going to want to make sure the consumer gets to everything that will interest them. Marketplace is quite decent in that regard, but there’s much improvement to be had (e.g. games section related apps always used to be the same list of Xbox games, no matter what game you were looking at). App stores should focus on bringing the better apps to the surface and burying the crapapps.  Nokia has their own version called App Highlights.

AppFlow is quite nicely designed, as you might expect if you learn that they’re the same folks who made cocktail flow.

Sorry this is late – computer was not up to task last night + a lot of uni stuff just caught up with me.
