There is a recipe app in accessibility category. One weather app is in the utilities, the other one is at location and navigation. There are news readers in Network category.

There could be less main category, and some subcategory. (a developement or network app could still be in utility category)

IMO this should be enforced by QA - ie an app placed by its dev in "wrong" category should be rejected along with "proper" category suggestion. Of course there should be some guidelines to choose the right category from the start.

Getting a sensible taxonomy of categories is very hard and not very useful. Personally I think we should be using tags which we should create collaboratively. Each tag should have a paragraph of explanation too - more for the developers to apply them consistently than to show users.

I agree with both comments:

  • Apps that are clearly in the wrong category should be rejected.
  • Tags are really more useful as e.g. Utilities is a very broad category.
