    how about making tags to easily link to the apps section, for example posting:
    [a]mixzing[/a]

    would produce:
    mixzing

    Done.

    HTML:
    1. [aa]Barcode Scanner[/aa]
    ..would produce: [aa]Barcode Scanner[/aa]

    Note: AA is actually undergoing some changes right now, so you may note it's a little fickle.

    Suggestion: Could that tag also grab an automatically generated QRCode?

    there's one thing about the apps site that is both bad for this tag feature as well as the usability of the site in general:
    by default, the search uses an OR operator insead of an AND
    that is, your example of a search for "barcode scanner" returns all apps that have either the word "barcode" or "scanner" in them, whereas what people likely expect when searching with multiple keywords is a result of apps that have both the words associated with them

    i just made a post with these links and noticed [aa]calwidget[/aa] nor [aa]swiftp[/aa] return any results

    both of those apps are older than this thread and they're still in the android market, so why aren't they found from the apps section here?

    also,
    that doesn't seem to have led anywhere?

    The developer we had for that section bailed, so development on it sorta stopped, but I will ask him to reply on this thread.
