    Hi,

    Have a nice weekend to you all.

    I have an accurate unit converter app which is distributed on Google Play.
    I just wonder which category of Play Store the app should be in in order that this utility app could be discovered easily. Is it Productivity or Tools?


    I am getting confused just because of the Play Store guide about category example.
    https://support.google.com/googlepla.../answer/113475

    According to this guide(Categories -> Apps -> Category examples), a "conversion" app should be in category of "Productivity".

    But in fact, I found so many unit converter apps are in category of "Tools" on Play Store.

    So how should I make a choice? :-

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Either would be fine, I think. I'm guessing that Google intended the Tools category to be for apps that modify or affect the device's actual performance or interface--but most developers have taken it to mean "productivity tools for work."

    Realistically, I doubt that many people search by category. I usually plug a search term into the main search bar, then see what comes up.
