    I hate to be this guy, but I’m a French Canadian who lives in SK I get that the main French areas are in Québec but what about Ontario and New Brunswick as well as anybody elsewhere in the country ? I just get annoyed when Québec is the only respect given towards francophones.

    Well it’s probably simpler to list popular apps with a French localization by developers with a QC address. They already have a “Canadian apps” section. In this case, I really don’t see what they could have done differently.
