This is because our 'process' for getting stuff in the app store is as broken 
as it gets. It requires 'somebody' to review and apps and do some actions to 
get them in - but that 'somebody' is really 'nobody' at the moment. We 
discussed this at the hackathon last week in Nue and we have a plan to fix 
this for 8.1.

In sort, we'll get a process including documented 'requirements' and some 
people who commit to checking and publishing apps. It needs some changes in 
the app store but I think we can get at least the most important improvements 
in in time.

Sorry, it is frustrating to see our new, good looking App store so empty :(

I just finished the Development report over February (yeah, I'm behind) and I 
must say - so many good apps, it really is a shame, and I'm glad we have 
found a solution for 8.1.

PS voting on apps.owncloud.org IS USEFUL, in case you were wondering. 
Downvoted apps get hidden at some point and apps will be sorted (and 
reviewed) according to rating. So, I know it is not much, but if you want to 
help - that is one simple thing you can do!

Everything I do and say is based on my view of the world today. I am not 
responsible for changes in the world, nor my view on it. Everything I say is 
meant in a positive and friendly way, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
