  1. look into why "perform installs" downloads the apps but doesn't install

    On my HTC EVO 4G with Froyo 2.2 installed I click [Perform Installs] button and it appears the apps are downloading, but then I get the "Manage Your Apps" screen again and the apps do not get installed. I'm sure I have the latest version of appbrain and Market. Not sure why installs do not happen.

    • App on phone needs to pick lists from site.

      There doesn't seem to be a way to access my other app lists that I saved from within the app client. I had to hard reset my device a few times and when I install appbrain to sync all my previous apps, it for some god forsaken reason, syncs two ways (device to pc) first and then erases all my apps I had chosen. Idiotic. I created a list with all my apps in it called "favs". I need to be able to pick that from within the app on the phone.

      • no limit to 20 pages per category, and more than 1 page for Developers Apps

        I want to see all the apps in a category, when I'm searching for something specific. And I don't want to be constrained by a limitation of only 20 pages.
        I also want to see ALL Apps from certain Developers (sample: GO-Team) and not only what fits on 1 webpage.

        • Search should work on partial matches of the name

          Now I can't find a program called Filmcalculator when I only type "Film"

              Currently you can only use AppBrain if you have a gmail account. Since I have a Google Apps account I cannot login. Please make this also possible!

                I would like to follow new apps by specific developers in Google Reader. Also the cool changelog would be great as an RSS feed.

                • A favorite type list for apps you like but only install if needed.

                  Sometimes I remove apps to make room for others but like to keep track of them for future reference if i need them. I don't always remember the name when I need it, but with a list that tracks it, i can easily open app brain go to my list and install it.

                  • Allow filtering by ability to "move to SD card" (on Android 2.2 and above)

                    Starting on Android 2.2, developers may enable the app to be moved to the SD card or to remain installed on the phone's memory. I suggest being able to search/filter by this characteristic in AppBrain so that I can select which apps to install and my phone's memory doesn't get full.

                    • View Apps List - display all lists an app belongs to

                      I use app lists like tags in other programs, to organize my apps. An app might belong to both Essential Apps, and Productivity Tools for example. When viewing an app list, you should display the lists the app belongs to, so I can know whether an app needs to be added or moved to any other list.

                      Better than that, but more work - would be to implement a standard app tagging system, so you can display a user generated tag cloud of popular apps.

                        • Add a way to update apps over the web (as opposed to install/uninstall only)!

                          When apps are ready to be updated, I cannot update them through AppBrain.com. I only have an option to "uninstall" them! Make it so users can update the app if their version is older than the latest update!

                            Allow Fast Web Install to upgrade apps already on the phone instead of just fresh installs. Right now I can uninstall the old version and install the new one this way but I'd like to skip the uninstall step.

                              This feature will make it easy for users to identify which apps are open source or by their license status. A feature that I believe ROM developers and users alike would love to see.

                              • When commenting inputers phone type should be also asked for

                                When people comment on apps they should also include the phone they are using so if all comments with 1 star come people with Nexus phone then we can judge whether to download it or not. Also good indicator for the creator to see what phone types maybe having problems.

                                  Like a "digg this" button but it adds it to AppBrain to sync later. this means when you read a review you can click one button to install it to your phone.

                                    It would be great to be able to quickly filter out apps that can be used in the classroom or for mobile learning.

                                        • enable one click install directly from search hit list.

                                          When searching for an application and you find it in the search result it would be convenient to install directly with an install button instead of going to the page for the application and then click install.
