Finding Applications

In an effort to obtain more relevant results when searching for applications in AppBrowse, the following is offered as a suggested list of tags to standardize the search function. Its purpose is to serve as a guideline to ensure relevant results are returned when searching for an application even when using only a few tags.

To search for or create a tag field, start by picking which CATEGORY best describes the primary goal of the application. That should be the first tag in the field. Follow that with one or more tags from the FUNCTIONS listed to the right to narrow down the search results. Optionally, additional tags specific to the applications capabilities may be added to the tag field.

1. The first tag should be from the CATEGORIES list (not mandatory).
2. That should be followed by one or more of the tags listed to the right of the CATEGORY.
3. That could be followed by any optional tags. Optional tags are free form but basically
   list items specific to the application. Examples include: jpeg, png, ntfs, iso, sha5, etc.

Here are a few possible examples:
