Snap categories - most downloaded, featured, etc


#1

Snap looks like probably best store on Linux (Kubuntu) and there are plenty of great app!

But me as user who want’s to just explore store and find interesting apps - nothing specific, just check some featured apps, it’s quite impossible to find something…

By going to https://snapcraft.io/store there are ~30 featured apps but that’s all.

Would be great to have some apps categories - eg. Apps > Internet | Multimedia | etc…, Games…, and show all apps in those categories with also most downloaded apps, or just featured by some metrics.

Or at least add pagination to main featured list - so users might explore more best apps out there.

That might definitely increase store usage and make it more user friendly!

We will be adding category pages soon, stay tuned!

Hi, I think that the categories section is already on the store, I just want to know how to make my game “bash-shell-rpg” appear in the “game” category since it isn’t in any of them.

I’ll add it today. Thanks!

I would like also add my snap “mki3dgame-snap” to the category “game”. (I could not find the way to do it myself …)

@mki1967 please access https://snapcraft.io/mki3dgame-snap/listing, there you can assign a category for your snap.

Just FYI, there’s a callout at the top of that page to point you to the new one :slight_smile:

It would also be nice to be able to see the total # of snaps in the store just so we can watch as snaps grow :slight_smile:
