Offers multiple ways for users to discover Cytoscape applications. This tool provides a featured apps section that invites new users to simply click on a featured app, read about it and, with a single click, install it. Cytoscape uses a learning-by-action approach to understanding the role and scope of apps by maintaining a low barrier to entry. There is a list of categories for users with a general idea of the kind of app in which they are interested. Users find all apps of a given type by clicking on a category. An app can belong to several categories, each chosen by their authors. In more, users can search for an app based on its name, description, categories, authors and authors’ institutions.
