    I'd prefer if they categorised them by Genuine free-ware/open source, shareware, ad-ware, and paid apps.

    Tired of ad-ware apps not advertising themselves as such, and so many just bad/dangerous apps on the marketplace.

    Hmm, personally I'd preferred to have seen a cinema-style rating system used - heck, even use the MPAA one (G/PG/PG-13/R/NC-17).

    +1 on that suggestion. And I'd also like to see some way (I'm using 2.1 at the moment) to see some way to sort the search results by star rating, (so the decent stuff doesn't get submerged in a flood of fart apps, sound themes, etc).

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...
