Well I think it all depends on the keywords which you specify before the release!!

Re: Search indexing of apps in appworld

Yeah you are somewhat correct, but the order is first keywords, then app name.....and now a days description is not considered...

Now if two apps have same keywords, then Ratings are compared as well that is if the one which has higher good reviews by user will be given preference over other!!

If this will occur then the most downloaded app will get even more downloads n the other will go down and down. just liek reich gettign more rich and poor gettign more poor

Re: Search indexing of apps in appworld

Yes u are absolutely correct, I personally think prefernce should be given to description of app as well as it is the sole distinction from other apps!!
