Title: CROSS-PLATFORM COMPUTER APPLICATION QUERY CATEGORIES
Abstract:
A limited first set of search engine results can be retrieved from running an application query, with the limited first set of results being limited to applications associated with a first set of application platform(s). Categories of applications referenced in the limited first set of results can be identified, and a category stamp can be generated for the query based on applications in the first set of results that are associated with each of multiple categories. A limited second set of search engine results can be retrieved from running the query. The limited second set of results can be limited to applications associated with a second set of application platform(s), with the second set of results being limited to applications in a category corresponding to the category stamp for the query. An application list for the query can be generated using the limited second set of results.
