In order to create better applications, software creators need to be empowered. We can help increase software distribution, monetize existing distribution, and provide a feedback loop so software creators can learn about their users. We also need to improve the ways that people interact with applications. Software is too hard to find, impossible to discover, and not intuitive enough to manage. We will enable people to discover and manage software by delivering the best, most relevant applications to them.
