I just added 'for BlackBerry PlayBook' to mine - I'll report ANY increase in sales - which would be more than 2!

After I submitted a new description containing "blackberry playbook" they automatically did the
capitalization and added the trademark symbols for me.
Same for mine too.

You could always use Google... Just enter
playbook site:appworld.blackberry.com inurl:content
or click here
However, I do agree that RIM should fix this. It's bad PR for the PlayBook.

Thank you very much for posting this, I am not a developer but I was just following these interesting topics on the whole issue with media claiming they are no apps, one could understand why. Continue the good work.

So the name change 'ABC Trace' to 'ABC Trace for BlackBerry PlayBook' went effective last night (4/21) and I had a 200% increase in sales (4).
It could be because of the name change or it's the weekend...

I'm getting a little peeved that having the term "playbook" in both my name and description doesn't cause my apps to show up when someone searches for "playbook". What really sets me over the edge is the 50 apps that do show up when a search is done for "playbook", and there is no clear cut reason as to why they show up over others. Care to weigh in RIM? It'd be appreciated.

Don't exactly understand why you'd want to put for Blackberry PlayBook in the title of your app, I mean 99.9% of users that will search for a playbook app will search from inside AppWorld on the PlayBook itself.
And since they're the only ones that will see those apps, not counting the web version) adding PlayBook to the title won't give your app more exposure.
I'm sure that there's a lot that comes into play with the search relevancy (it could be anything like date added, # of downloads, matching terms and so on) and we don't know what algorithms they use. I do agree that they should improve it though.
Most people won't find your app or game from a search result, just because it's kind of hard to search for something when you don't even know what you're looking for. It's easier to find an app by looking at specific categories.
