It would be nice to have a share button, so that at least among KDE users we could share store apps links and have an improved experience. Just like in the case of Google play store, to say one.
I understand there might be issues when sharing apps from different distros, but who cares, it would suffice to have the option to do so among same distro users at least. In a second stage it might even be possible to match packages from different distributions by some criteria (name+maintainer?), and hence make the share button really shine :)

So you want an option to share the appstream:// link to the app, so that you can give it to someone else and they can click on it and it will open in Discover?

Exactly what I was on about.
I can clearly envision this to be useful in a range of situations, from posting those links on websites/socials, to sending them to friends and so on...
What do you think?
Sure, seems like a fine idea.
