I keep frequently seeing new users come on here and really struggle to find great Community created SmartApps that could fix their needs . . . which gets me thinking.
Would it be viable or even an idea to have a 3rd party app store created where all the community developers can put their code’s for SmartApps / Devices Types Etc (non official ones) which then users can copy and paste at their own discretion/risk . . .
if you built a system where users had to login also, you could make it in such a way that when a user copies that code, they are subscribed to that smartapp (this meaning if you as a developer update the code, the website could inform all users who have installed it) . . . either this or like smarttiles you include an installer that you give permission to, then you can auto push updates.
i just imagine a nice clean location with categories for device types and smart apps // categories for device types and use cases like " locks / sockets / window coverings / etc etc " would make everyone’s lives so much easier, and also help push these hidden gems created by community developers to a much wider audience, it would also allow smartthings to see which smartapps are been used most by users, professionally managed by the developer and worthy of been made official quicker etc etc.
anyone got thoughts or ideas on this ?
