Publishing an open app to the Yahoo gallery

Hi,

I have developed an open application http://apps.yahoo.com/-LL9ac14u
I have read over all the documentation, and still cannot find the procedure to publish or add my open app to the Yahoo Gallery.

I'm sure it's some over site on my part, but I am stumped.

Any help would surly be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

  • Hi nal1012222,

    There isn't an official publishing method available for pushing YAP applications to the gallery. We ask most developers to post their application for review on the forums and then they are manually reviewed and pushed. I'm going to move this topic over to the YAP forum as it is the most accurate place for application reviews.

    I should note that when an application is in a live state it can be added by anyone - even without review. Applications when first published go to a wider # of apps gallery (see apps.yahoo.com/myapps for instance). When applications perform very well, they are considered for inclusion within My Yahoo!

    So, I've looked over your application and have a few items that should be addressed before pushing it on for review within our publishing system:
    - You should utilize all available space within the small and large views - currently your application is a very small widget with a lot of whitespace.
    - The large view appears to just be a lunching zone to forward people to your website. Your application should provide compelling content within the application, not just link off for anything the user may do.
    - You should use the update stream to post messages about user activity on the site (as you are requesting access to update / status for the user permissions)

    Those are a few of the comments I generally have before forwarding this application on. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks for the rapid reply Jonathan.

    I have made the recommended modifications to the open application, http://apps.yahoo.com/-LL9ac14u, and wish to submit it for consideration in the Yahoo Gallery.

    1) Removed the unnecessary request for for the user permissions.
    2) Utilized the allotted space more fully in both views.
    3) Made the Full view slightly more interactive locally, without jumping to the hosted server.

    Thank again for your guidance.

    Regards
