In Local Scout, if you select a company, it will show their details, including an applications tab, which can show some useful connections (things like links to driving directions apps and things like that) - however, there are a few completely irrelevant applications in the list of those available to install, for example, "Flashlight-X Pro" - is there any way to hide this application from the list?

  • The same thing happens in the Picture and Music & Video hubs. I think it is down to the developer to accurately describe the abilities of the app.

Well, those applications have now disappeared from the applications tab, so perhaps someone at Microsoft noticed -- I also see from a blog post that they're encouraging people to report applications that appear to have invalid keywords to reportapp@microsoft.com


I think some apps show in Scout because the way depeloper opted in in App Connect

Some apps can show in Music+Video Hub, Picture Hub, Scout and so on. Maybe this developer choose to show in Scout.
