Apps sorting needs change
« On:December 19, 2015, 11:33:14 PM »

Tizen store app display order needs to be changed. First look at the screenshot "top free". Here
1. Whatsapp
2.  Opera mini
3. MX player
4. Sshare




Now see "New free":
1. Pattern lock screen (17/12/2015)
2. SHAREit (17/12/2015)
3. MX player (21/10/2015)
4. SShare (07/12/2015)
5. Cool sound manager (14/12/2015)


Let's come to the point. As "NEW" category, new items should be displayed on top i.e. position of cool sound manager(5) should be replaced with MX Player(3). There are many apps that has been posted after MX player, but they're not on top of page. I think "new free" page is fetching "most downloaded first" or something like this. Please sort the apps on top of page which are recently added to store. It will be very convenient to find new apps if sorted as "last post first". Please consider.


With regards:

Their are "trix" to make apps visible at first position...  >:(

Yes it is traditional sorting of tizen store ;D

To find out major apps, people simply use search box instead of scrolling too many pages. Only problem with apps from new developers. It will be encouragement for new developers to work hard if their apps download counts high and this is possible when new apps are displayed on top. Because many users want to test new arrivals in tizen store. Also there are many users like me who dislike scrolling.

Let's see what devs think in this regard...

Tizen Store New Free Apps
« Reply #3 On:March 07, 2016, 12:00:39 PM »
In Tizen store, there's a column with heading "New Free". But this column don't show the latest new free items added in the store. Instead it shows random items.

Example- Today(07/03) a few apps like Daily Quotes, Hindi Translator and game Prison Run v-0.3.0 were added in store. So the "New Free" column should show them at the top with the games/apps added in the recent past in a chronologically backward order.

It'd be very nice if my suggestion is taken into consideration.

Thanks.

But the latest new app should be shown at the top.

Otherwise I have to look at every category to see if any new apps/updates have been added to the Store.

Hope this is taken into consideration. Haven't got any response from the Forum moderators though.

AFAIK it should be the way Joreel has mentioned..Brand New apps + Recently updated ones.  hOwever as you say, the brand new must be on top followed by updates as the title is for "New Free" :)

As  you can see in the screenshot provided, MX player is at the top, which has been added/updated in the store on 30/12/2015. So by what means it's at the top in New Free apps list.?

Zed! Hope you do something to fix this.

Thanks.

I have observed that 'new free' list shows apps added in last 2 months.
and this list is sorted based on the number of daily downloads.
New updates for an app has no effect here.
Some apps like MX player have special privileged and they don't follow this last 2 month criteria.

Individual app category 'new free' list is sorted based on last app update date.

'Top free' list is sorted based on total number of downloads in last 7 or 15 (not sure) days.

But why not a fixed pattern is followed.?
New Free must show the latest apps. Otherwise one has to browse through every category to see if a new app is added in the store.

If this can be done

The latest update is that the "New Free" shows the 100+ latest deployed applications and sorted in order of download count in the last couple of days.
However that still doesnt mean that an app updated in december has to show up in March at "New Free".

We have posted a suggestion to store team to check and see if this can be made better.
