WP7 Tip: Selective Marketplace Search – Really!


Found this while searching a few WP7 forums today. We all know how frustrating it is to type something like “twitter” into Marketplace on a WP7 phone and get a combination of; artists, albums, playlists and oh yeah, applications in the results. Well now try typing “twitter application” (omit double quotes) and viola, the results only include “applications” What a concept! Works almost as well if you replace “application” with, song, artist, album, etc. but you may get some crossover because of keywords. Although the desktop app is already somewhat filtered, this trick works just as well. More focused results. Now that wasn’t so hard.

             No Filter                            Filtered/Application                     Filtered/Album                      Filtered/Artist
