Hi Samuel:

I am the maintainer for the app: Hot Potatoes

There is an App maintainer for each app and she/he is charged with 
keeping the description and functionality of the app up to date or up to 
the latest app version.

Once you have done an update, the devs are automatically emailed of the 
changes to the app updates and if there are any major problems, the 
maintainer is contacted by a dev and the maintainer acts as a liaison to 
the person who reported the problem "bug" or the maintainer is asked to 
help debug.

People can also test the app and submit their appraisal

There is no voting component. I find the voting principle too subjective.

Clear image view of the app.
