The current app store is minimalistic and gives a minimum of functionality, there are in principle two options, a list of recommended apps and the search function. Where the search function is as good as the user is able to come up with search words. The question then is; is it possible to create a third party app that works as an overlay and give a more useful result. In order to make the problem more approachable and to take advantage of work done by others before this thesis focuses on cancer related apps [1, 2] Unfortunately there is not enough data in the metadata in order to create such a system, with a meaningful improvement in result. Another big problem is there are really an extremely small number of users a system like this will be targeted at both this version, but also a general version.
