Re: [scopes] Places and events in the Dash home



Places master scope with everything and if I want eat I select restaurants
filter. Could be great !

Today, when I out of my city for work, I open google maps and search for
"restaurant" or "bar", check the stars and recommandation. And go in comics
bar after eat shushi :-P , it's what I did this week in unknow city.

Much important for my usage, see a list with distance between me and place,
and check opinions of the place. Can write easly an opinion cloud be great

Thanks for your listening !

>> Hey all,
>> The Dash home has always been a very prominent place in Unity and is now
>> front and center with Unity 8. With the growth of scopes for places and
>> events websites such as Foursquare, Yelp, Songkick and the fine-tuning of
>> results geolocation, I'd like to open the discussion on where and how to
>> display these types of results. Currently, they are aggregated in an "Info"
>> master scope, which hosts a mix of various scopes like Reddit, DuckDuckGo,
>> etc. and creates a confusing list of results.
>> How should we fix this ? Here are a few suggestions :
>> 1) We could introduce a Places master scope : that would host everything
>> related to your location (or the location you are searching for).
>> The benefits would be that when browsing previews in Places, you could

>> 2) We could introduce both Events and Places master scopes : to split

>> The benefits of this solution would be clearer results grouping and

>> 3) Even more category splitting : master scopes for bars, restaurants,
>> museums, concerts, plays, etc.
>> This would have the benefits of making a very clear results list, but on

>> I'd like to hear your thoughts and ideas on that problem.
>> Cheers,
