Sorting apps, and linking to external content
THanks for the suggestions.
The problem with flagging apps as being accessible or not is that this can be quite subjective. This issue has been discussed elsewhere, and it seems that some people will tolerate certain accessibility issues (more usually things such as poor button labelling), whilst others will regard the app as inaccessible. Of the apps that I have used, I would say that about 25% could conclusively be described as accassible or inaccessible. However, the rest were probably less clearcut, and could be used if you were willing to deal with their problems.
As for your suggestion of links to external reviews. do you mean an additional field for each app submitted to the App Directory? Or are you talking about something totally separate?
I can certainly see some value in this. I would probably look at adding it to what is already present, rather than have it replace any of the existing fields. One concern, however, is not wanting to add too much 'weight' to the app submission process. The fear is that asking people to provide too much information might only put them off the whole idea.
What do others think of Scott's suggestion?
