Apps who can ease your thirst for knowledge thats really interesting for you, as those apps fine tune the input you gave them and recommend more articles/content of this kind.


Inshorts displays news in a 60 words summarize, your personal feed can be set based on "tags"



Goodreads is like a social network for books, your ratings on books define what recommendations appear. Be aware that some categories are hidden inside the search and must be followed manually



Refind presents you a daily dose of blog articles , the amount can be configured up to 25 and every article is meant to be rated by you to get better matches every following day



R Discovery helps to find research publications from your favorite topics and works similar to Refind: Hide or like the article and the algorythm shows more relevant science



Mallzee is like the clothes equivalent to tinder, swipe left or right and the app learns what other clothes can fit to your style



Justwatch was designed to display latest shows and movies on the streaming platforms you are actually in, besides that it will show you what other people who viewed the same content also like


Youtube is designed to learn from likes and playtime of certain videos , its startpage will get more precise the more you view. Its ability to create "subprofiles" can be used to have different recommendations per needed content (like one for music, the other for tutorials and so on)

How are channels managed? Does the whole thread belongs in there (with the other apps too) or just a description of the app?
Here is an example of a Channel: https://androidforums.com/apps/dart-dash-casual-tap-darts.20053/
The developer can post an announcement thread in there and interact with users. Any thread about the app can be grouped in this area to increase visibility. Any threads that should be in there can be moved in by the mods, as well as removing threads or spam.

Threads in a channel also show in the broader Android Apps & Games forum so folks don't have to go directly to your channel to see your content. It also works with our forum app in that a user with your app installed can tap on the app within the forum app and ask questions. That will create a new thread within the channel visible from the web or within the app.

There is no harm creating a channel for any app you want to talk about. Just make sure you are being constructive, and not just a shill. Folks come here all the time to chat about apps they are fans of, or learn more about apps that may make their lives better. Channels just help organize them a little bit without hiding them off in obscure subforums.
