Re: [board-discuss] LibreOffice no longer in Apple store ?

2023-01-17 Thread Patrick Luby
I noticed the same problem in the US Mac App Store but not the Canadian 
Mac App Store.


How Apple's Mac App Store search works is a mystery (I dealt with too 
many other mysteries a decade ago), but so far I have not seen the same 
problem with NeoOffice. I don't know if it helps, but here are the words 
we use in the "keywords" field in appstoreconnect:


neo,office,document,spreadsheet,text,presentation,open,libre

GitHub:
https://github.com/neooffice/NeoOffice/blob/NeoOffice-2021_branch/AppleAppStore/metadata_and_uploads_notes.txt

I cannot remember how I came up with the keywords, but they have seemed 
to work over the years so the only thing that I can suggest is to check 
that "libre" and "office" are at the beginning of the comma-delimited 
search words field inappstoreconnect. Maybe even add "libreoffice" for 
good measure. In other words, try something like 
"libre,office,libreoffice,...other search words...".


If you have already done the above, let me know if you have any 
alternative theories. I have deployed NeoOffice through the US Mac App 
Store since 2013 and through the Canadian Mac App Store over the last 
year and I am happy to share any experiences or data that may help 
resolve this searchability problem for LibreOffice.

Hi Alex, some people see LibreOffice in the Apple Store, and some 
don't see it (I don't see it, and I see different things from you). 
We are investigating with Apple. The new version 7.4.4 was approved, 
and has been uploaded without issues as the previous one, so the 
behaviour is indeed strange.




Thanks for responding. It turns out that I got the update to 7.4.4 
automatically (as the previous version was already installed), but for 
the life of me, I can not get it to appear in the search results, 
hence my question.


You don't see it currently because their is a special request for France 
that we have to comply with first (ANSSI certificate). Once this done, 
you'll be able to see it :)

Christian provided a direct link, but we don't know if it will work either:
https://apps.apple.com/us/app/libreoffice/id1630474372


Just to add a note for everybody, search should work but may default to iOS.

Cheers
Sophie

The link will open in a browser just fine, but if I agree to open the 
link in the default Apple Store app, it displays an error message


"App indisponible"

"Cette app est actuellement indisponible dans votre pays ou région".

So, currently still not visible/available for French-based Apple store.

Hello all,

A general question to the Board : has a decision been taken to remove 
LibreOffice from the Apple store (whether voluntarily or forced 
removal by Apple) ?


I ask because whilst searching today (13/01/2023) via the search bar 
of the store, there is only 1 LibreOffice specific result, and that is 
LibreOffice Viewer, being sold for 3,49 EUR, and figuring somewhere in 
the bottom quarter of all the results displayed.


Otherwise, sorting by relevance, the first occurrence of anything 
derived from OOo technology is NeoOffice (4th place), and Collabora 
Office (35th place).


The first 3 results, in order, are MS Word, MS Excel, MS Powerpoint.

Tried searching also with :

"Libre Office"

"libre office"

"libreoffice"

to no better effect (in fact, even worse, as NeoOffice gets shunted 
even further down).



Anyone on the board with knowledge of what is going on ?


Alex
