    What is the algorithm MS uses to display apps in marketplace? It doesn't make any sense at all.

    For example, if I search for 'chinese dictionary' number one item is Taptitude. How does that happen? It even outranks apps titled chinese dictionary. In fact Taptitude shows up for a bunch of completely unrelated random searches as well. It's hard to find the apps that I want because there's so much random stuff that appears when I search for things.

    If I click on 'role playing games' then 'A Pimp RPG' shows up under top apps. That game has been at the same spot ever since I got my phone. There's no way that 2 star app is somehow a top app. That can't be right....can it??

    Also, where can we go to report bad apps? There's an imposter Tiny Wings game. It uses the same screenshots and icon as Tiny Wings but it's a poorly disguised fake designed to rip people off.

    The rankings go off of downloads that month, not rating.

    And I've read somewhere that you can report fake apps or bulk ones, but I am not sure how. I think I read it was somewhere on app hub.
