Here are my thoughts after using it a bit. Some might sound critical but is really only meant as my view and suggestions. The -app-store is super already.
With search, categories and the home screen discover ability of app is very good.
The instant search while you type does not always work (e.g. firefox). After a few more try’s I think it takes just a bit long so that you have typed the full search name and pressed search already in some cases before the search help comes up.
In am not sure by what the apps in the Categories menu are sorted. Maybe some sort and filter functions could be helpful moving foreward?
Excellent to show the privacy rating in the search result. Although it is not really clear to me what it actually means and some apps that I use and trust have a surprisingly low rating.
The Chrome browser from Google has a privacy score of 5.0 and Firefox from Mozilla has a score of 3.0 ?
The feedback the screen gives during the install process might be a bit confusing when it first shows a percentage (for download ?) that goes to 100% and after that comes the install process. This is when installing from the search result list directly. Due to the 100% I thought all is done at first…
It is unclear to me why it says N/A in the rating for an app. Example Joplin
Is this not a user rating gathered in the /e/ app store from people who installed the app?
-As of now I amnnot sure how the rating works.
Or maybe is this feature not active yet?
The /e/-app-store looks super
I love the icon as well.
At least for me it might be helpful to understand a bit how the app manager works and which apps it contains. I am not so familiar with this.
Are all apps from f-droid automatically included in the /e/-app-store?
How do the various app-stores play together?
If I have previously installed an app with yalp.
Should I uninstall it and reinstall with the /e/-app-store or does it not matter?
I haven’t any updates listed in “updates”. I installed “Moovit” and “Nike training club” from /e/App and Yalp proposes updates when /e/ doesn’t. It appears that /e/Apps have older versions. Some examples :
