Sort order is not good

I launched Appnr 3days ago.

Currently, Appnr show packages based on GNOME Application Istaller(Add/Remove) on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS for x86 architecture. And sorted by installs based on Ubuntu popularity contest.

Popularity contest?
See Software Sources -> Statistics

No worries about the version of Ubuntu and architecture, because Appnr is just a interface. However, sort order is not good… Python are most popular, yes, everyone installed, yes, by default.

I may add feature,

  • sort by name
  • love button

    I think recently installed from the site would be a good ramdom-ish order :)

    I think it would be helpful to see the app version as well. Similar to what is shown for Python. Like with Banshee, I would like to download 1.2 from Appnr but there is only 0.13.2 available. Can you tap into other ppa’s? Trhanks.

    The system of Appnr can support to third-party repository. (required to add that repo to ubuntu though)
    I should display about how to add repository.
    oh english difficult for me.

    It would be nice if there was a way for Ubuntu to ask if a user would like to add a repository based on the requested package. If you need help translating to English I would be happy to help.
