Interesting clustering measure used here, and good thought to ask users what the categories should be.

Using an open card sort with children to categorize games in a mobile phone application store
Brendan Cassidy, Dipti Saurabh Antani, Janet C C. Read

This paper presents a study aimed at better understanding how children categorize different games. The paper reports the results of an open card sort where participants were asked to categorize games from the Google Play Store (formerly the 'Android Marketplace'). The key contribution of the paper is that when compared with existing categories in the Google Play Store, children used categorization criteria much more aligned to the goals of the game rather than more abstract categories currently found in mobile phone application stores.
