I have a list.
I've done a bit of formatting, but it's basically a manual effort. My next step is to convert the app names to appcatalog.de URLs so that clicking an item gets you to the app page where the details are.
The problem is to get these details into the list. Doing 6000+ apps manually isn't going to happen unless we get quite few people to split the job. There are programs that could download the entire site, but how to easily convert the data?
We could use the list as a front end & the website itself as a back end, but then the list lacks the data to make searching easy. The more search terms, the easier it is to sort for whats relevant. Also, a breakdown by developer gives us a contact list to request that the apps are kept available.
Likely useful searches:
All paid apps (before the 1st November)
By Developer / support contact
Ignore categories (e.g. books) easily found elsewhere or items known to be poor quality. (is app spam a term? ;-)
Finally, there needs to be a way to update the list with more recent apps - I'm drawing a blank here.
