To make an app shop work you would really need to choose one platform.
Would that be qtmoko? or FSO? or KDE plama? Android?

Once you have that sorted out you need to be selling hundred of units of an
app before the money starts to become interesting.  And for that you need to
ship thousands of devices at least.

However having a 'store' where people could show-off their apps and others
could vote and comment might be of some value.
